Today on the show, my friend — & brother in arms when it comes to swim / bike / run — Jonathan Schwartz. In certain respects Jonathan is an “everyman athlete”, but he is far from ordinary. Early morning it’s up to train. By day he’s a business manager to A-list Hollywood clientele & professional athletes — NBA players and major rock stars like Alanis Morissette & Linkin Park — as well as a dedicated father and husband. But his passion his health. Particularly heart health. I’ll let him tell the story, but in a nutshell a health scare led him to a plant-based diet, and he’s never looked back; sound familiar?
Jonathan took his passion for addressing our nation’s heart disease crisis to the next level when he founded HeartView Global, a foundation devoted to two primary goals:
- To identify heart disease in its latent “clinically silent” phase, thereby allowing asymptomatic but vulnerable individuals to undertake the necessary prophylactic lifestyle modifications and medications to arrest atherosclerosis – and for clinically unrecognized high risk individuals to undergo the necessary coronary interventions that will help prevent the development of heart attacks, stroke, or premature sudden cardiac death; and
- To encourage a plant-based nutrition diet founded in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, along with some nuts and seeds.
Jonathan is a great guy. His message is powerful. Tune in. And thank me later.
