The Low Carb Cardiologist Podcast

Traditionally we are taught that any elevation of LDL cholesterol leads to heart disease. Not so fast, says Dave. In this episode, we discuss why this does not apply to LMHRs and what that means for LCHF individuals and what it means for the medical world as a whole. We also discuss how recent PCSK9i drug trials prove his point, even though contemporary medicine promotes them with an opposite conclusion. Sound confusing? Well, it isn’t once you hear Dave explain his case.

My guest, Dr. Danny Penman, had used a breathing meditation throughout his youth to get through the extremely difficult periods of his life but he didn’t practice mindfulness daily. It wasn’t until a tragic paragliding accident left him in severe pain that he turned back to the breathing exercise to calm his mind and to minimize his suffering. Danny used his long period of rehabilitation to research mindfulness and meditation to relieve pain and depression.

After realizing there was a profound benefit to adding mindfulness into our daily lives, Dr. Penman partnered with Professor Mark Williams to write the international bestseller, Mindfulness: An Eight Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World. Dr. Penman’s latest work, The Art of Breathing, simply explains the concept of mindfulness through art.

Dr. Penman has a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and is an award-winning journalistic.
