Did you know that globally, cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in women? Research suggests that 1 out of 2 women don't, and this conversation with Dr. Alex Verge ND about cholesterol, heart health, and menopause is full of things women need to know as they go through the menopause transition. We discuss myths about cholesterol, the role of diet vs genetics, and why dietary dogma often gets in the way of making changes that stick.
Dr. Alexandra Verge is a naturopathic doctor who loves talking about heart health. In her 20 years of clinical work, her focus has shifted from general practice to issues more commonly experienced by people as they age; arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, and, in particular, cardiovascular disease. In fact, in recent years, Alex would say that the subject has, well, captured her heart. She especially loves helping people better understand how high blood pressure and cholesterol can affect their current and future cardiovascular risk while developing workable yet effective management strategies.
