Dr. Sinatra Health Advice & Supplements
Meet Dr. Sinatra
Dr. Stephen Sinatra's approach to treating cardiovascular disease has revitalized patients with even the most advanced forms of illness. His expertise is grounded in more than 35 years of clinical practice, research, and study.
This includes a career at Manchester Memorial Hospital (Eastern Connecticut Health Network)—nine years as chief of cardiology, 18 years as director of medical education, seven years as director of echocardiography, three years as director of cardiac rehabilitation, and one year as director of the weight-reduction program—and founding the New England Heart Center. Through it, he became a well-known advocate of combining conventional medical treatments for heart disease with complementary nutritional, anti-aging, and psychological therapies.
Integrative Therapies That Support Overall Health
As a practicing cardiologist, Dr. Sinatra focused on six heart healthy core therapies, which he then combined with select conventional treatments, based on individual needs. This best-of-both-worlds approach consistently resulted in the best possible patient outcomes.
A True Pioneer in Heart Health
Dr. Sinatra was one of the first cardiologists to recognize the importance of the essential heart vitamin: coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)—which sparks energy production in every cell of your body, including your heart. He began using CoQ10 with his patients in the early 1980s and has done extensive research on CoQ10 that has been published in numerous medical journals. He continues to include this key heart vitamin in his Omega Q Plus® family of supplements.
And, when it comes to cholesterol and overall heart health, Dr. Sinatra was also one of the first to say that saturated fat is not the enemy. Instead, taking steps to reduce inflammation—including eliminating dietary sugar—is the best way to support healthy cholesterol levels and overall heart health.
Healthy Directions has had the privilege of working with Dr. Sinatra since 1995. Today Dr. Sinatra is active primarily as an author, speaker, and advisor for the research and development of nutritional supplements.
Throughout his more than 35 years of integrative cardiology, Dr. Sinatra has contributed to numerous peer-reviewed medical journals, including Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Connecticut Medicine, and Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. He also published his own monthly newsletter, Heart, Health & Nutrition, for more than 15 years, and has authored several books, including:
