Look for the cause and do not treat the symptoms. This was a strong message from this excellent book, something I have only just learnt after a stent in 2006 and many health problems, these being treated with drugs as they occurred. Only from research, monitoring my own health and the reactions to prescribed drugs, and a couple of emergency visits to hospital, did I arrive at this conclusion.
Dr. Wolfson is obviously passionate about paleo living/diet (foods from Palaeolithic period), all that he writes makes perfect sense, and he backs his arguments with research data, which validates his book. As a non medical person, some of the symptoms and medical terms needed further reading, but that meant I learnt more.
His work as a cardiologist has given him inside information, and his learning and research of Paleo living/diets has taken his standard cardio medical training to a higher level. My own experience of the well trained, sincere and great doctors/specialists/consultants I have seen only goes to prove that people only know what they know, and they need to open their eyes and minds to other research and treatments and not just rely on pharmaceutical representatives only interested in profit and quick fixes to symptoms, that lead to further problems needing more drugs to treat those symptoms.
I liked that he wrote a couple of sections on and describing supplements and tests, meaning the reader has a deeper understanding which is best for them and not just taking the hype written on the back of the bottles.
A must read for those treating patients and those interested in their own health. I added the book The Anti-InFlammatory Diet & Action Plans, Dorothy Calimeris & Sondi Bruner for actual dietary plans and foods stuffs missing from The Paleo Cardiologist.

Rev. M. Parnell
Alternative healing with food for thoughtGranskad i Storbritannien den 6 december 2020
An interesting alternative view based on the perspective that heart disease is a modern concept and that by taking a life style that reflects an earlier period of human evolution, heart disease can be treated to better effect.
