The Pillars of Health

By Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.A.C.N., C.N.S., C.B.T.

Over the years, my patients have proved to be the best teachers about health. Their individual situations, added to the knowledge I’ve accumulated through decades of research, and even my personal life lessons, have led me to believe that most diseases result from an inadequate supply of essential nutrients, emotional blockage and environmental toxicity. I believe the key to healthy aging, or preventing degenerative diseases, including heart disease, is committing to the practice of 6 fundamental principles I call “the pillars of (cardiac) health…”

Architecturally speaking, pillars provide structural support for buildings such as monuments and temples. Without adequate and balanced framework, the roofs of such buildings will quickly cave in from environmental, and other, pressures. Likewise, our bodies can easily succumb to environmental, physical, and emotional stressors due to lack of foundational support.

Keep your bodies strong with my 6 foundational pillars of health maintenance:

Healthy aging, or staving off degenerative disease, means committing to a healthy lifestyle and climbing back on the bike no matter how many times we fall off. Cultivating health requires us to understand and nurture our bodies’ physical, as well as emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. While no one will live forever, improving the quality of our health can increase our longevity and ultimately more valuable time with loved ones.

Remember…prevention is always easier than cure.

    How much niacin is needed to produce cholesterol lowering results? I am taking 500 mg bid. Also I started using advance cholesterol solutions two months ago. I haven’t been back to my doctor for another check as of yet due to an ill family member for whom I am sole care giver. Hopefully in the next 3 months I will be able to see my MD for another test.

    Thank you,

    I am type

    a blood and eat things goof for my blood type I eat a sauce made up of spinach broccoli, brussel sprouts, green beans, portabela mushrooms, the whole bag if fresh garlic, celery, bag of carrots, parsley, red onions, grape tomatoes, classico spaghetti sauce, salsa, black pepper, “no salt” and put this sauce over white jerusalken artichoke pasta with two corn tortillas with salsa/avacado and a slice of Swiss cheese. I eat this every day for lunch- it is great and makes me feel great. I am 83 yrs. I have no symptoms of afib even though an ekg test shows my heart is not beating right. I am taking your omega 3 plus 100. I wish every one would eat for their blood type. It really helps!
