Becoming Natural Heart Doctor

A Note From Cardiologist Dr. Jack Wolfson

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the world. The ripple effects of heart attacks, strokes, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, and other cardiovascular conditions are felt by millions.

Doctor’s offices and hospitals are filled to the brim with patients searching for health. Heart disease is a pandemic — a pandemic that modern medicine cannot vanquish.

Trillions of dollars are spent on pharmaceuticals, tests, cardiovascular procedures, and surgeries. Doctors and patients expend countless hours trying to put an end to cardiovascular disease. Despite this, life expectancy in the developed world is peaking. We are losing the battle.

The current cardiology model is broken. Doctors receive training in what I call “label medicine.” A person complains of a group of symptoms and the doctor assigns a label.

The label may be high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, or heart failure. It could be breast cancer, Alzheimer’s, depression, or fibromyalgia. Once a label is applied, next comes a drug, a test, or a procedure to address the diagnosis. The problem is that label medicine doesn’t work.

Labels make it easier to practice medicine. Once a doctor assigns a label, the treatment plan is set. But this plan is simply a band aid, it doesn’t address the CAUSE of the signs and symptoms. When the cause is not identified and reversed, healing can never happen.

I became a cardiologist because I wanted to be a part of the solution. I wanted to help prevent, treat, and reverse heart disease. After ten years of medical training, I was a hospital-based cardiologist in the biggest group in Arizona, treating the sickest of the sick. Angiograms, pacemakers, echocardiograms, and stress tests were my daily routine.

The work of a cardiologist is hard. Long hours, weekends, night calls, and the constant stress to perform is not an easy career path. But I loved it and was fulfilling my dream.

My father was also a cardiologist and my role model and hero. Sadly, he began to suffer from a brain disease similar to Parkinson’s, labeled Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) in his mid 50s. Doctors at the prestigious Mayo Clinic could not help him, and they had no idea why this was happening.

Our Story about Natural Heart Doctor

Then something happened that would change the course of my life for good. I was introduced to a young woman by a friend trying to play matchmaker. At the first meeting with this woman (who would become my wife and partner), I was smitten and pulled out of the haze of modern medicine.

Heather told me that the current medical system is a sham. We aren’t helping people. We are hurting them and killing them. By not finding the CAUSE of the disease, we use pharma and procedures to cover up symptoms. People continue to feel lousy, unfulfilled, and die young.

What she said to me made perfect sense. I saw sickness all around me and in my own family. The Mayo Clinic didn’t have answers, but this woman did. And what qualified Heather to provide these answers? Common sense, the universe’s innate intelligence, and her degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

She offered me the “red pill,” to pull me out of the Matrix. She offered the truth. Like the character in the movie, I swallowed the red pill and accepted all the uncertainty, turmoil, and struggle that would go along with it. The medical community and Big Pharma are not kind to doctors who escape the Matrix.

I left the big cardiology group in 2012. And today Natural Heart Doctor is the worldwide leader in Cardiovascular Health. Although it has not been easy, I continue to speak the truth. I was too late to save my father, but this message is powerful. It has already helped thousands heal from disease, and it could save millions of lives.

It is this truth of health that I wish to share with you as a Natural Heart Doctor. Millions suffer from atrial fibrillation, heart disease, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, and stroke. You are likely one of them.

Your health is dependent on the celebration and understanding of the innate intelligence of your body. If you give your body what it needs and take away what it doesn’t, you will achieve the 100 Year Heart. Remove yourself from the medical matrix. It is broken. It is DOA.

Sure, there is a time and place for pharmaceuticals and surgeries, but this should be a last resort, not the first choice as in the current model.

So, if you are looking for the 100 Year Heart and want to live your best life without pharma and surgeries, you’ve come to the right place. Join us in our mission to change the face of cardiovascular care and change the world. We need healthcare practitioners’ patients who are willing to embrace the power of the human body. Together we can end cardiovascular disease.

Welcome to Natural Heart Doctor.

About Dr. Lauren Lattanza NMD, FACC

Dr. Lattanza Office Visit with Patient

As a Naturopathic Physician, I am trained to treat the whole person and get to the root cause of disease.

I went to Arizona State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a depth in physiology and minor in Spanish. After my undergraduate degree I was working on prerequisite classes towards medical school, which is when I came to learn that my values identified best with the principles of naturopathic medicine. I knew that I wanted to help patients identify the causes of disease and be able to offer treatments which would improve their health rather than simply treating symptoms.

I dedicated the next 4 years to the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona where I attained my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. I served as Class President all 4 years, Board of Trustees – Student Trustee, spoke as the Club President for our branch of Toastmasters, and was voted by my peers and attending physicians to earn the Outstanding Leadership Award for the Class of 2020. Throughout medical school I took it upon myself to work alongside MDs, DOs, chiropractors, and functional medicine practitioners in addition to naturopathic physicians.

As a Spanish speaking student, I was able to volunteer with community clinics around Phoenix and provide free healthcare to low-income families. Due to this combined exposure, I came to find my passion in treating cardiometabolic and digestive disorders that are all too common, yet largely preventable. I took the opportunity to learn the broad spectrum of healthcare so I can ensure that I am able to provide my patients with the best options.
