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.

This episode discusses options for treating heart disease from lifestyle changes to medications, procedures, and surgery. Lifestyle changes like diet, exercise, reducing stress and alcohol are emphasized. Medications are commonly used to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and prevent blood clots. Procedures include tests, ablation for abnormal heart rhythms, and angiograms.

Surgery options covered coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic wrap procedures. The future may bring genetic and stem cell therapies. The podcast encourages listeners to prioritize heart health through joining the Healthy Heart Network. In summary, from lifestyle to cutting-edge therapies, a range of approaches were presented for navigating heart conditions.


  • Lifestyle changes are foundational for managing heart health conditions like losing weight, reducing stress, limiting alcohol, and exercising regularly.
  • Medical management plays an important role through medications that lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and prevent blood clots.
  • Procedures can help with diagnosis through tests or improve treatment like placing pacemakers, clearing arrhythmia, or opening arteries.
  • Surgery options include coronary artery bypass grafting to reroute blood flow or valve/aorta repairs which require opening the chest.
  • Risks and benefits of any treatment need to be carefully evaluated for each individual patient.
  • Conditions discussed include coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, palpitations, and high blood pressure.
  • Future therapies may involve gene therapy, stem cells, or RNA interference to restore cardiac function.
  • Joining the Healthy Heart Network provides heart health resources and risk assessments.
  • The podcast aims to help listeners understand and improve their heart health.
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and working with medical professionals can help manage many heart conditions.

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.
