In Is Your Cardiologist Killing You, Dr Rogers argues that medicine has had a free ride by drugging every symptom for long enough. The evidence is clear that drugs merely work by poisoning a pathway that makes the symptoms subside. However, in doing so you have missed a golden opportunity to actually cure the problem. So eventually the problem worsens and requires more medications.
As well, all drugs use up or deplete nutrients from the body in the work of detoxifying them. So by a second mechanism drugs also create new symptoms and diseases that seem unrelated and are often unsuspected as being caused by medications.
The exciting part is that we now know so much molecular biochemistry of the body, and how it is orchestrated to harmonize with foods and nutrients that we have enormous power to actually cure conditions that are currently relegated only to drug therapies. This book focuses on cardiology problems from high blood pressure, cholesterol, arrhythmias, and congestive heart failure to what to do after a heart attack, stents, bypass, or to reverse coronary calcifications.
It contrasts the current practice guidelines and pharmaceutical focus, as well as cardioversion and ablation, with the overwhelming evidence on how to actually cure much of this and not need drugs at all. Furthermore, it details the serious and often life-threatening drawbacks of the pharmaceutical approach.
Last but not least, it instructs you how to quiz your perspective cardiologist to determine if he is from the old school where every symptom is a drug deficiency, or from the approach that looks for the causes and cure of your life robbing heart disease.
Dr Sherry Rogers is a regular guest on, with Joyce Riley, where I continue to learn about her work and from where many of her books are available.
I find myself surprised that it has taken me so long to post a recommendation for Is Your Cardiologist Killing You, since it was one of the first of Dr Rogers’ books, which I learnt about on , nevertheless, I am happy to do so now.
All of Dr Rogers’ books are available at Prestige Publishing, and many from .
