Jul/Wed/2018 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Heart disease is the number one leading cause of death amongst men and women in the US. In fact the first sign of heart disease in 50% of all cardiac deaths is death itself. However, there is a variety of alternative methods of early detection and natural treatments that most doctors don’t know about. In this lecture Dr. Ken Hoffman will present many cutting edge approaches to detection of early risk, natural treatments that can reverse these risks including diet and lifestyle advice. This lecture is a must if you want to learn how to avoid becoming a statistic.

At the end of the lecture, Dr. Hoffman will be doing a free Heart screening using a non-invasive test called the DPA (Digital Pulse Wave Analysis).
