Overview

Heart disease is largely preventable, but conventional cholesterol management is often inadequate. According to university cardiologist and leading prevention specialist Dr. Stephen R. Devries, avoiding heart disease requires a far more comprehensive approach that balances new high tech testing with low tech treatments. Now, in WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT CHOLESTEROL, Dr. Devries combines natural treatments with the latest scientific
advances. New types of cholesterol tests are highlighted that go far beyond routine testing to identify hidden risks. Expanding the traditional medical model, Dr. Devries illustrates the role of mind/body interventions, lifestyle, supplements, vitamins, and conservative use of medication for optimal prevention.

I thought this book was great. It is easy to read and understand. When I went to the doctor I felt very informed and it helped me ask the right questions. My doctor was surprised of the knowledge I had. He even ran blood tests that I asked for which gave us a better picture of what was going on.
