The Surprising Truth About Coffee & Heart Attacks, How Sulfur Can Rescue Your Arteries, Better Erections Naturally & More With The Natural Heart Doctor Jack Wolfson.


Listen on:

After a recent cardiovascular wake-up call, my quest for optimal heart health led me straight to Dr. Jack Wolfson.

You might recognize him as the board-certified cardiologist who’s been transforming the world of heart health with a natural approach, and whose book, The Paleo Cardiologist: The Natural Way to Heart Health, skyrocketed to an Amazon #1 best-seller.

If you’ve ever had an inkling that the route to heart health might not lie solely in pharmaceuticals, Dr. Jack’s work and message will probably resonate. Once immersed in the conventional world of cardiology, performing coronary angiograms and pacemakers, his life took a holistic turn after meeting his chiropractic wife, Heather. Together, they are not just a force in the medical world but also pillars of philanthropy. With four children, their mission extends beyond medicine; they are ardent advocates for a better world, channeling their efforts into providing for those in need, championing animal rights, and passionately promoting natural health causes. Today, Dr. Jack stands at the forefront of natural cardiology, advocating for a paradigm shift where the root causes of heart problems are addressed rather than resorting to Band-Aid fixes.

Through his websites and and his venture, Cardiology Coffee, Dr. Jack bridges the gap between heart health and a natural lifestyle. And the media can’t get enough of him. With features spanning from NBC to the Washington Post, it’s clear that the world is paying attention. And it’s not just about the media recognition; it’s about the lives changed, the individuals inspired, and the global community he’s built, all dedicated to fostering natural heart health.

During today’s show, I’ll be discussing my personal heart health journey and introducing Calroy, a pioneering heart health supplement company whose products, including Vascanox and Arterosil, are crafted with the synergy of science and nature. Dr. Wolfson and I will unpack the nuances of the endothelial glycocalyx in heart health, shed light on the importance of Salivary Nitric Oxide testing, address the concerns surrounding glyphosate, and much more. Additionally, Dr. Wolfson provides insights into sulfur deficiencies and offers his perspective on radiation and CT scans. If you’re as enthusiastic as I am about transformative solutions for foundational health, this segment promises to be enlightening and informative.

During our discussion, you’ll discover:

The endothelial glycocalyx is a protective layer in blood vessels
Endothelium is a one-cell layer
Glycocalyx is a hair-like layer attached to the endothelium
Protective of the blood vessel
Creates a smooth surface in the blood vessel
Nothing will stick to it

Sulfur plays a role in maintaining the glycocalyx
Ben’s podcast interview with Dr. Gerald Pollack:

The glycocalyx is inside the exclusion zone
The exclusion zone is a protective area

-Why Dr. Jack is anti-CT scans and radiation, and prefers other types of testing…54:30

Believes radiation leads to coronary artery disease, cancer, and dementia
Some individuals take CT scans into their own hands, leading to unnecessary procedures and medications, even if they initially had no symptoms
Being put on statin drugs
Undergoing stress tests, angiograms, stent placements
Taking multiple pharmaceuticals

Ben’s logic around CT scans
The results would influence lifestyle decisions
How much high-intensity exercise
What supplements to take
What medications to take that may assist with plaque removal

Ben’s concern for his clients when they have had testing that shows high calcium scores
His advice:
No extreme training and racing
Be moderate with sauna use
Be mindful of mineral intake, etc.
“Baby” their heart

Dr. Jack Wolfson doesn’t believe calcium scan scores are necessary
Recommends advanced lab testing for heart health, which includes extensive lipid profiles, markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, and metabolic health
Emphasizes that any medical test should only be done if it can change a person’s treatment strategy and improve their health
Lipid profiles, markers of oxidative stress, inflammation, and metabolic health
Believes there is no need to radiate the body to assess coronary health

Statin drugs are known to increase coronary calcification
Don’t significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, or death, especially for primary prevention
