Are you worried about high cholesterol levels and being now at risk for a sudden heart attack and other heart problems? Or maybe you’ve already had one and don’t know if there will be another one coming. Well, if you’re tired of taking all those heart meds and want a solutionwithout MORE meds or surgery, listen in to this interview I had with my guest, Paul C.

In interview Part 1
, Paul shares the symptoms and experience he had of a heart attack at only 40 years of age, with a subsequent one just two years later. As a result, he had two stent placements and was also placed on multiple medications, including those for cholesterol, angina and blood pressure. Learn what led him to finally make the change to a plant-based diet lifestyle and some of the positive changes he started experiencing as a result, after just 4 months of starting a whole food plant-based diet!
