Physician Speaker on Diet and Heart Health
Steven Masley, M.D. is one of the best speakers on diet and heart health in the country. He is passionate about empowering people to achieve optimal health through comprehensive medical assessments and lifestyle changes. Dr. Masley is scientifically qualified as well as passionate. He is a physician and nutritionist, as well as being a popular author, a spell-binding speaker, and an award-winning patient educator. He is a fellow with the American Heart Association, the American College of Nutrition and the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida, and he also teaches programs at Eckerd College.
In his newest book, Smart Fat: Eat More Fat. Lose More Weight. Get Healthy Now, which he co-wrote with Jonny Bowden, PhD, this eminent heart specialist addresses head-on the myth that fat makes us less healthy. For years experts have told us that eating fat is bad. But by banning fat from our diets, we’ve deprived ourselves of considerable health benefits—and have actually sabotaged our own efforts to lose weight. The fact is, eating more fat—the smart kind— can be the key to health, longevity, and permanent weight loss.
Dr. Masley is the author of numerous scientific articles, and several health books, including Ten Years Younger and The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up. His work has been featured on Public Television, the Discovery Channel, the Today Show, and in over 250 media interviews.
Dr. Masley wrote The 30-Day Heart Tune-Up to enable people to tune up their hearts, energy, waistline, and sex life, as well as help people reverse cardiovascular disease if they already have it. This book arms readers with the tools to build the strongest heart possible.
Dr. Masley’s approach emphasizes prevention. Over the years, as a resident and then as a physician, Dr. Masley has volunteered in more than 15 impoverished countries. He discovered that most of the time, the human body has the capacity to heal itself without high technology, specialized drugs, or risky procedures and surgeries.These unique experiences led Dr. Masley to view healing from a different perspective than many of his medical colleagues in the United States and he has developed a different understanding as to why cardiovascular disease remains the #1 cause of death in the United States, despite the fact that it is preventable 90% of the time.
In lively, memorable presentations he teaches his audiences as well as his readers through vivid illustrations to shrink arterial plaque, improve circulation, manage stress, eat heart-healing foods, and strengthen the heart and arteries through specific exercises, Dr. Masley improves on the traditional method of preventing heart disease. By evaluating more factors in a holistic way, rather than the one-dimensional measurement of cholesterol levels, THE 30-DAY HEART TUNE-UP is an answer to the epidemic of heart disease.
The good news is that everyone—regardless of size, genetics, gender, or age—can treat arterial plaque and prevent heart attacks and strokes.
In his personal appearances, Dr. Masley and his graphic powerpoint slides grip his audiences with entertaining, medically sound advice to reduce cardiovascular risk without surgery, drugs, invasive tests, or expensive trips to the doctor. His listeners leave with a scientifically proven plan embedded in their thought patterns to reduce plaque in the arteries plus recipes that include heart-healthy foods and an exercise regimen that will strengthen their hearts. Best of all, his plan produces results in as little as 30 days.
“As a physician, I find our state of affairs incredibly frustrating,” writes Dr. Masley. “Nationally, we spend far too much money on procedures for a problem that is preventable, should be diagnosed earlier, and is best treated with lifestyle changes. We often don’t act until a heart attack or stroke occurs, and by then it’s often too late. For too many people, the first symptom of heart disease is sudden—they don’t get another chance to change anything.”
