Heart MD Institute is a free online educational resource about integrative medicine. Dr. Stephen Sinatra, a board certified cardiologist, certified nutrition specialist, certified bioenergetic psychotherapist and anti-aging specialist, founded Heart MD Institute to promote a medicinal model based on integrative strategies and inspire the "inner healers" within everyone.
Motto: Prevention is Easier than Cure
With the understanding that knowledge empowers, our mission at Heart MD Institute is to educate the public and medical professionals alike about integrative medicine, with a special emphasis on metabolic cardiology. Integrative medicine tailors the best of traditional acute/life-saving interventions and alternative measures to suit individual patients' needs. Metabolic cardiology involves the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease at the cellular level through biochemical interventions that are native to the human body. Heart MD Institute envisions a restructuring of the traditional relationship between doctors and patients, where both actively partner in the patient's healing process.
