    New Novel Therapies for Heart Disease Reversal

    New Novel Therapies for Heart Disease Reversal

    The words "prevent not stent" are the highest goal of care at the Kahn Center and can be confirmed by the "test not guess" philosophy of using CIMT and CT imaging for plaque detection. In many, plaque is already present and needs attempts at reversal.
    This week Dr. Kahn discusses two supplements he has used for years for disease reversal based on a rich medical science literature. He then describes two new approaches that are novel, natural, and new but supported by amazing science.

    Episode 277: The One Minute Sprint Workout and the Carol Bike

    Episode 277: The One Minute Sprint Workout and the Carol Bike

    Is it possible that 2 or 3 bursts of high-level exertion, often known as high-intensity interval training or HIIT, can result in measures of fitness and metabolism comparable to moderate, continuous exercise for 30-45 minutes?
    This week Dr. Kahn discusses the Tabata, Gibala, and Carol Bike protocols. All of which he uses in his own exercise routine. The Carol Bike features ReHIT or Reduced Exertion HIIT where even 5 minutes of exercise has been studied and shown to be favorable. New data from a large British database provides further support that there is just no time excuse not to exercise some most or all days.
