Heart problems are the greatest single cause of death in the western world. Yet in many other less technologically developed places, heart disease is very rare.  This course provides advice and information that will supplement, but not replace, medical advice.  It will equip you to practice as a holistic cardio-care practitioner, as well as aid the practitioner working in many related areas such as sport, stress management or natural healthcare.
