Dec 2, 2021

We uncover the untold “secrets” to metabolic health in this episode - straight from a heart surgeon. 

However, Dr. Philip Ovadia is not your typical allopathic cardiologist dishing out drugs and selling surgery as the only solution to heart issues. 

Dr. Philip is on a mission to keep people OFF his operating table. 

In this episode, Wade and Dr. Philip zero in on something called metabolic health - an approach to wellness that focuses on five simple health factors that you are probably already familiar with (blood pressure and blood sugar being two factors.) Dr. Philip explains how these five health indicators provide a gauge that directly relates to a person’s risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. 

Considering only twelve percent of Americans are metabolically healthy, you will probably benefit by tuning in. Dr. Philip knows what it is like to be morbidly obese, staring at a future filled with many negative health issues. 

You will learn how our guest took ownership of his health and is now in that metabolically healthy twelve percent. 

Dr. Philip Ovadia is a board-certified Cardiac Surgeon and Founder of the Ovadia Heart Health clinic. He is also the author of the book Stay Off My Operating Table: A Heart Surgeon's Metabolic Health Guide to Lose Weight, Prevent Disease, and Feel Your Best Every Day.
