Daniel Chong, ND has been a licensed naturopathic physician, practicing in Portland, OR, since 2000, where his primary focus is on risk assessment, prevention, and drug-free treatment strategies for cardiovascular disease. He is also founder and lead coach at The Healthy Heart Academy, LLC, an online platform created to help eradicate heart attacks via direct consumer coaching, and health practitioner education. Dr. Chong has completed training in cardio-metabolic medicine from The American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine, is a member of the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE Society), serves as a clinical educator for Boston Heart Diagnostics Lab, and is a contributing editor in cardiology for The Natural Medicine Journal.
In this conversation, Dr. Chong and I focused on the number 1 killer in the US, heart disease. Dr. Chong talk about the foundation for preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease with diet and lifestyle. We talk about some of Dr. Chong's favorite foods for heart health, as well as those to avoid. We also discuss the hot topic of supplementation and what most humans may need, even when consuming an optimal diet. I know Dr. Chong will be back on the podcast some day to expand and deepen into some topics we skimmed over!
