Listen to Dr. Heather Shenkman on your favorite podcast app:
The truth, straight from our resident vegan cardiologist, Dr. Heather Shenkman is that we have the power to not only prevent the leading killer in the United States today (heart disease), but we can actually reverse it. The @veganheartdoc talks about nutrition, exercise, sleep, total wellness, balance, and peace – all of which she has tested herself as an accomplished athlete and cardiologist. Dr. Heather just opened up her very own Cardiology practice this year, got her new book published the end of 2017, The Vegan Heart Doctor’s Guide to Reversing Heart Disease, Losing Weight, and Reclaiming Your Life, and is living proof that this lifestyle will leave you not just surviving but thriving. This is the last podcast in our Love Month series in February on how to take care of your physical heart as well as your emotional one. You won’t want to miss this upbeat, fact-giving, possibly life-changing episode of Lauri’s Lemonade Stand, A Positivity Podcast for Women.
Dr. Heather Shenkman MD FACC is an interventional cardiologist who owns her own practice in the Los Angeles area. While she performs complex angioplasties to open up clogged coronary arteries, she prefers to help her patients reduce their risk of heart disease through prevention using a healthy lifestyle that includes a plant-based diet and regular exercise, in addition to medication when appropriate. She is an avid athlete, having completed over a hundred events of various distances, from sprint triathlons to Ironman distance triathlons, marathons and ultramarathons, and several hundred-mile century cycling events. Dr. Shenkman is a strong believer in a plant-based diet for heart health, as numerous studies have demonstrated prevention and even reversal of coronary artery disease.
