How do you heal a broken heart? I meant to ask that literally! In today’s episode, Dr. Jockers talks about the ways to restore the damaged cells of the heart to a healthy state via a process called autophagy. Understand the factors that lead to the decline of the heart’s flexibility and vigor. Recognize how a healthy heart looks like, so you’ll know in a heartbeat when yours is still at its peak or if it’s starting to decline. Then you’ll know what you can do to give it some TLC.

“Cardiac autophagy is a way to get rid of the abnormal or damaged cells in the heart.”

– Dr. David Jockers
