Natural Cardio Care: An Herbalist's Perspective with Guido Masé

Guido walk.jpg

Cardiovascular issues touch the lives of over 84 million people in the US, and remains the leading cause of death for both men and women. Hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, peripheral artery disease and even diabetes are disconcerting conditions that many people struggle with but seldom know the best options for natural treatment and prevention. 

Cardiovascular disease can happen to anyone. Taking a proactive approach to support healthy cardiovascular function is the best way to prevent more serious issues as we age. Many preventive measures can be taken naturally, by learning how to self-evaluate so you can promote optimal function and eliminate lifestyle factors that undermine cardiovascular health. How does one properly self-evaluate? Natural Cardio Care with Guido Masé is specifically designed to guide you through the various components of self evaluation for better cardiovascular health. 

By the end of the 6-Week Course, you’ll have an extensive, personalized natural cardiovascular care program that will boost confidence in your overall health. Along the way you'll have the benefit of learning with a supportive network of like-minded individuals and experienced health professionals. 

In addition to core classes taught by Guido Masé,  guest speakers will add to the conversation by offering their unique perspective on natural cardiovascular health. Special guests include Christopher Hobbs, Tammi Sweet, Deb Soule and  Kerry Smith.

All classes will be held live Mondays and Thursdays and ALL classes will be available to watch as a replay until August, 2020.
