Cardiac Diet: Dr. Steven Sinatra

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

Background


The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology is written by board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra. In this book he explains the methods he used with his patients who were on heart transplant waiting lists to bring them back to a normal quality of life.

Steven Sinatra discusses the importance of energy metabolism for cardiovascular health and outlines how the use of specific nutritional supplements can have a positive therapeutic effect for the treatment of these conditions.

Cardiac Diet Basics

Firstly, Sinatra educates readers about the fundamentals of energy metabolism and how this is involved in the function of the heart. He also elucidates on a number of case histories of his patients who have made dramatic improvements in their health while under his care.

He then systematically explains the roles of the nutritional supplements, coenzyme Q10,  L carnitine, ribose and magnesium in cellular function and in particular how they affect heart health. All of these nutrients work by improving the supply of energy to the heart muscle, but also have unique and synergistic effects. His explanations are very detailed and are all supported by scientific research.

While the information in this cardiac diet is targeted towards the treatment of cardiovascular conditions such as congestive heart failure, arrhythmia and heart attack recovery, Steven Sinatra also goes into the ways these nutrients can improve general health by enhancing the function of the entire body at a cellular level.

At the end of the cardiac diet he provides a list of protocols for specific conditions including high blood pressure, age-management, mitral valve prolapse, chronic fatigue syndrome and insulin resistance as well as programs for professional athletes and coach potatoes.
