Alo Healthy Living  Academy: The Future of Medicine

Empower yourself with knowledge! The current healthcare system only takes care of you after it's too late. It's broken. Don't rely on a system that doesn't proactively help you improve your heart health and well being. I believe in education and providing you with data and knowledge so you can improve your health. Our system is a "sickcare" system, not a healthcare system. That's unacceptable!

The Doctor's Doctor:

Board Certified Internist, Cardiologist, and Certified Personal Trainer!

Do you want to learn from The Doctor's Doctor who has been teaching cardiology, heart health, healthy living, nutrition, and proper weight loss for over 20 years? Or from a newly graduated, inexperienced doctor and fitness trainer? Or the latest fad diet you read about online?

I've been teaching doctors how to teach their patients to lose weight properly and optimize their health for nearly 20 years. I have traveled the world teaching physicians about proper weight loss, cardiology, longevity, and healthy living (without the crazy fads and gimmicks). I get paid thousands of dollars to lecture at medical conferences teaching physicians proper weight loss. I am a professor of medicine at multiple medical schools.

My lectures and techniques have led to hundreds, if not thousands, of patients, friends, and private clients FINALLY losing weight correctly, without restrictive, outrageous diets that are sometimes dangerous. You can watch most of my lectures on my very busy YouTube channel. I post all of my medical lectures and talks on YouTube.

The Cardiologist's Cardiologist

I've also been called The Cardiologist's Cardiologist. Hundreds of cardiologists from all over the country consult me about their medical and cardiac problems, and I helped them optimize their health and longevity. I am honored and humbled to be considered a valuable resource to my fellow cardiologists. I have a special interest in lipidology and advanced lipid testing. My frameworks and algorithms are used by so many cardiologists. Obviously, we are smart enough to treat ourselves, but it's always nice to get a fresh pair of eyes and a second opinion from someone you trust. Scroll down this page to see what cardiologist Dr. Matthew Phillips had to say. He is a leading cardiologist from Texas. My upcoming cholesterol book has been endorsed by Prof Kausik Ray MD, the President of the European Atherosclerosis Society as well as Dr. Thomas Dayspring MD, America's leading lipidologist.

Millions of Followers Online

When you search online for reliable sources of cardiovascular knowledge and education, one name keeps popping up. I started posting my medical lectures on YouTube before it was even called YouTube. You can also find me on LinkedIn, Pinterest, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Threads, and multiple other platforms educating the public on cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment. I've been invited to speak all over the world and have been called "America's Cardiologist".  My YouTube videos recently eclipsed the 2 Million view milestone!

America's Cardiologist

In today's landscape of confusing social media "Medfluencers" we need a voice of reason. We need evidence based cardiology advice that is as unbiased as possible. We need to know who to trust and who is just talking nonsense. Sometimes it's not that easy to tell because Medfluencers speak with such authority. I'm here to cut through all the BS and give it to you straight. Only evidenced based advice that is 100% proven. You don't need anything else! Dr. Layne Norton PhD has also endorsed my upcoming book and said that we need "Evidence Based Heart Disease".

Top Notch Cardiology Education & Academy

I decided to start Alo Academy to teach high level heart healthy advice and provide university level education. Cardiovascular disease is still the number one killer. It's not enough to scratch the surface. You can't just "Google it" and wing it. Your heart is the most valuable organ. You can't risk just winging it. You need help from leading authorities on cardiovascular care and outcomes. You need advice from someone who knows the studies, the data, and the science. You also need someone who has treated patients before. Sure, there are plenty of PhDs that know a ton about heart health data, but they have never treated a patient. They have never looked inside your arteries. They have never prescribed a diet or medication. They truly don't know. You want to learn from some who has spent their entire life taking care of cardiac patients, helping prevent disease and monitor disease.

Cardiology Meets Weight Loss and Lifestyle Medicine

Because I also treat obesity and weight loss, I am uniquely qualified as a cardiologist, weight loss doctor, and certified personal trainer to help you with all aspects of your well being. Obesity medicine, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle medicine are my passion. I have been practicing this for over 20 years.

Too many of today's cardiovascular conditions could have been treated with yesterday's decisions and choices. Most of my patients come to me and say, "I wish I would have met you 40 years ago". Because that's how you prevent heart disease. Sure, I can still help you now, after you have had a heart attack. But 40 years ago, we could have made sure you never had one.

Lipidology and Cardiology

Yes, we need cholesterol. Every cell in the body needs cholesterol. And... every cell in the body makes it's own supply of cholesterol.

Lipidology is the study of cholesterol and lipoprotein metabolism, absorption, function, synthesis, and elimination. It also embodies how and when we treat elevated cholesterol. Not everyone needs to be treated. You don't just put everyone on a pill and say, "See you later". It's a very complicated disease process that must be individualized.

Make no mistake though, cholesterol starts at a very young age. We know from the PESA, CARDIA, and PRECAD trials that people with "normal" cholesterol have subclinical (not yet detectable) plaque and disease. But we can prevent this. Learn more in my community and from my cholesterol book.

Too many Medfluencers claim that if you are metabolically healthy, then high LDL cholesterol is not an issues. This isn't true and the research and science backs it up. You'll learn more in Alo Academy!

My goal is eliminate atherosclerosis as a disease. I want to wipe it off the face of this earth! It is possible with today's modern advancements in medicine!

Professor Of Medicine

As a Professor of Medicine at multiple medical schools, that means I teach future physicians. We also run a cardiology fellowship program and I teach future cardiologists as well. I also speak at a multitude of medical conferences every year teaching physicians and cardiologists various topics. Whether it be at the bedside or our weekly lectures, journal clubs, morning reports, didactics, or at cardiology conferences, I enjoy teaching.

I also lecture at medical schools and medical conferences. I have taught thousands of physicians in person and millions by proxy through my online social media platforms and online educational programs.

Obesity, Lifestyle Medicine, and Cardiology

Like you, I have been overweight and sometimes obese since college. I have tried almost every fad diet you can imagine; Atkins, South Beach, Sugarbusters, Zone, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Whole 30, Intermittent Fasting, Keto, Paleo, TB12, and so many others. I would lose a little bit of weight, only to gain it all back. What gives? It was frustrating! I developed horrible relationships with food and exercise. It was so frustrating!

It was so embarrassing. Especially because I was "The Weight Loss Doctor" and the obesity specialist. If anyone should know how to lose weight, it should be me!

It took me over 20 years of researching, writing, and lecturing on weight loss to finally figure it out. I have read every book and research article on obesity and weight loss. I have over 20 years of experience helping thousands of actual patients lose weight. I have invested nearly $100,000 dollars on licensing, coaching programs, education, courses, continuing medical education, and private programs to learn more about weight loss, nutrition, diet, and exercise to bring you university level teaching and education.

It's my job to stay up to date on the latest research! My patients and clients love my system and how easy it is! You get to eat whatever you want, and still lose weight! And it's backed by actual research and science! You will get a copy of every single relevant study!

The most beautiful part? You will develop a good relationship with food and develop a healthy mindset and learn to love yourself! That's more important than the pounds you will lose and the weights you will lift!

I'm a cardiologist and certified personal trainer, and I have been able to help thousands of my clients and patients lose weight. They have all been asking me to make my system available for all, so I finally decided to put my system out into the world in videos, books, courses, and tons of free content.

In case you are wondering, yes, that's me after losing 50 pounds of fat and gaining a bunch of muscle. It took me about 6 months. Yes, I was eating whatever I wanted. You can learn how to do this too! I reveal all of the tips and tricks and science behind my plan in my best selling book!
