What is Metabolic Cardiology?
This term was coined by Stephen Sinatra and describes his approach to the practice of cardiology. IN treating patients over the years he found that conventional drug therapy didn't really get his patients well and this was something he just could not accept.
Through much reading and investigation Dr. Sinatra taught discovered the principles of mitochondrial energy production and began to apply them to his practice. He came to understand that heart failure was really a form of mithochondrial myopathy (a dysfunction of the mitochondria in the heart muscle.)
He was one of the first cardiologists to discover and utilize the benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for his cardiac patients.
Inspired by the effectiveness of this approach, he still struggled to understand why co-q10 was not 100% effective with his patients.
As he learned about other bioenergetic nutrients, the pieces fell into place and his patients thrived!
Metabolic cardiology is the practice of cardiology using bioenergetic nutrients like
D-Ribose, Magnesium , and
Carnitine which provide the fuel for mitochondria to create energy and keep the heart functioning strongly.
A Groundbreaking Approach
Mitochondria are the energy producing part of your cells. Stephen Sinatra discovered that healthy functioning mitochondria in the heart are vital to its ability to pump strongly enough to circulate blood through the body.
The word myopathy means muscle disease, and thus mitochondrial myopathy is heart muscle disease brought on by dysfunctional mitochondria that cannot produce the energy the heart requires to contract.
Using nutrients that serve as energy substrates, Dr. Sinatra has shown the cardio-myopathy can be largely alleviated by giving the mitochondria in the heart what it needs to begin producing the higher amounts of energy that help the heart to heal.
Buoyed by the success of this approach Dr. Sinatra has made it his mission to educate others about the principles of Metabolic Cardiology that proved so effective for his patients.
This new approach is nothing short of a revolution in the way we treat heart disease, and we have Stephen Sinatra to thank for it!
