Becoming Heart Attack-Proof by Protecting Your Endothelial Health

Download MP3

Although heart disease may seem like an inescapable fate or stroke of bad luck, the truth is it takes years, often decades, to develop. But there’s good news because we have a lot more control than we originally thought. We can become heart attack-proof by adopting simple lifestyle habits that can help strengthen and protect our endothelial lining. 

In today’s minisode, Dhru discusses the lessons he’s learned on his heart health journey and the critical role our endothelial health plays in our risk for heart disease. He shares what damages the endothelial lining, which coats the inside of over 60,000 miles of blood vessels, and how you can strengthen it by supporting your mitochondria, circadian rhythm, sleep, and more. 

Dhru also discusses his personal experience navigating high cholesterol despite making diet and lifestyle changes and how working with Dr. Michael Twyman and getting a series of lab tests helped him get a deeper look into what’s going on with his heart health.
