Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients.

Dr. Warrick Bishop discusses bone health and osteoporosis risks in this podcast. He outlines who should be considered for bone mineral density scans according to Australian guidelines, including those over age 70 and younger individuals with risk factors like family history, smoking, alcohol use, or low body weight. Certain medical conditions and medications can also increase osteoporosis risk, such as corticosteroids, thyroid issues, antidepressants, and proton pump inhibitors. Dr. Bishop provides this information to help educate listeners and patients of his Osteo Strong business, while noting he is a cardiologist first and wants people to discuss their bone health with their doctor. He hopes listeners live as well as possible for as long as possible.


  • Heart disease is a major issue in Australia, with someone suffering a heart attack every 30 minutes on average. Many of these could be prevented through lifestyle changes.
  • The podcast aims to educate listeners about blood pressure, weight, cholesterol and how to improve health in these areas.
  • Bone health is an important topic. The speaker owns a business called Osteo Strong that focuses on improving bone strength.
  • Guidelines recommend bone mineral density scans for those over 70, and men over 60 or women over 50 if additional risk factors are present like family history or smoking.
  • Women are at higher risk of bone issues earlier than men due to hormonal changes during menopause.
  • Certain medications like corticosteroids, thyroid medication, antidepressants and proton pump inhibitors can negatively impact bone health.
  • Conditions like kidney disease, liver disease, inflammatory conditions and cancers being treated with hormones can also influence bone mineral density.
  • Multiple myeloma is a bone marrow cancer associated with thin bones.
  • More discussion of appropriate blood tests for those with osteoporosis or osteopenia is warranted.
  • While not an expert in bone health, Dr. Bishop aims to provide information to facilitate discussions between listeners and their doctors.

Australia, like the rest of the western world, has a heart problem.

Over 9 million people around the world die from heart disease every year.

Every 10 minutes, someone in Australia suffers a heart attack. And 21 lives are lost daily because of it.

The devastating fact in all of this is… 

Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented. 

This podcast is for anyone who wants to improve their health literacy and gain information to help them make the best decisions about their risk of heart attack, their cholesterol, blood pressure, risk of diabetes, weight loss and general health. Join me on my personal mission journey to prevent Heart Attack on a global scale. If you like this podcast, I would be honoured by a 5-star review and appreciate if you let your friends and family know about this podcast; you may even save the life of someone you love!

Are You at Risk of a Sudden Heart Attack? How Healthy is Your Heart? Really?

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the Western World. In Australia, someone dies every 28 minutes from heart disease. That’s 51 people a day. In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 SECONDS!

  • 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
  •  59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
