The Real Causes of Heart Disease – Beyond Cholesterol
This week, on A Different Perspective, Doc talks about the more complex contributing factors and dispels commonly held misconceptions around heart disease. Is cholesterol really the primary culprit behind heart disease? Not exactly.
Doc explains how cardiovascular disease will kill more women than anything else. But plaque buildup stems from multiple causes, and there’s a long lead up to it, which means that, while you can definitely work your heart back to health, it’ll also take time.
There are a lot of contributing factors to women’s heart health, including high blood pressure, inflammation, GI issues, and more. Elevated cholesterol alone does not seal your fate.
Doc also discusses:
- Natural ways to improve cardiovascular health, like berberine. What does it do, where do you find it, and are there studies to back this all up? Doc covers it all!
- Why it’s never “just” gas and bloating.
- Doc’s advice: Get tested, reduce sugar, eat broccoli sprouts and cruciferous veggies, lose weight, exercise. Your actions and lifestyle aren’t insignificant to your health – quite the opposite, actually!
- Your heart health is too important to rely on misconceptions. Watch this video to get a bigger picture from Doc and start improving your cardiovascular health, today!

The Dark Side of Ozempic: Is It Worth the Risks? | A Different Perspective | September 9, 2023
This week, on A Different Perspective, Doc and Megan Redshaw talk about the diabetes drug Ozempic, that has become what many turn to to lose weight. Doc and Megan warn against this strategy. With serious potential negative consequences and drug risks, they argue the risks outweigh the benefits for most people.
In this eye-opening talk, Doc and Megan discuss:
- How many people in America use Ozempic as diet pills even though its intended purpose was as a diabetes drug.
- Mechanism of action – Ozempic mimics the “fullness hormone” GLP-1 to suppress appetite.
- Alarming side effects like pancreas inflammation, kidney failure, worsened vision, gallbladder issues, and thyroid cancer. This is because Ozempic acts on receptors throughout the body, not just related to weight.
- There’s no long-term safety data for Ozempic
- With so many consequences throughout the body, Doc and Megan Redshaw advise focusing on proven, holistic weight loss methods without harmful trade-offs. They’re aware that telling people to stop eating sugar and move more to avoid obesity and lose weight isn’t the easy solution we’d all prefer, but it’s still the best way to do so. Just because something is easy and convenient doesn’t make it advisable. Watch the video to find out more!
Perceived Authority Isn’t the Same as Wisdom | A Different Perspective | September 9, 2023
This week, on A Different Perspective, Doc challenges his viewers on whether they agree or disagree with the statement, “doctors give bad advice all the time, and use their perceived authority to try to control people’s actions.” Doc encourages his viewers not to fall for the idea of authority but to think and ask questions of the results. As Doc has said, “If things were just based on results, the medical field would go out of business.” Do you agree or disagree? Watch the video then add your thoughts to the comments. We’d love to hear what you think!
