There is so much more to a heart healthy diet than reducing certain foods.
It is about ADDING in the therapeutic foods and nutrients that your body needs for improved blood flow, heartbeat regularity, and blood vessel/artery health optimization. When we focus on adding in these foods, we achieve improved blood pressure control, address underlying inflammation and oxidative stress, increase heart function, and we truly reduce your risk of heart attacks and strokes.

“I wish I met Michelle before my heart attack. Since we worked together in her VIP program, I have gotten off my blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes medications - medications I took for years before. My blood tests and weight have never looked better and I haven’t had this much energy in years. Not only am I achieving my goals, it is easy to continue doing it. The food she recommends for me is tasty and easy to make with my busy schedule.”
