2021 Reverse Heart Disease Retreat

With Dr. Steven Masley at his home in St. Petersburg, FL.

Join me in my home in St. Petersburg, Florida for an intimate, 2-day retreat to enable you to prevent and reverse heart disease.

Dates are still TBD for the Fall of 2021, with advanced cardiovascular testing performed the day before the retreat starts.           

My goal for this event is to give you the tools needed for you to transform your life and overcome fears you might have regarding a future heart attack or stroke.

During this retreat, you will discover the real causes of heart disease—it is not just about cholesterol.

By the end of this retreat, you will know:

  • Which foods to eat and which to avoid
  • What nutrients and/or supplements you might be deficient in and a plan to ensure you optimize your nutrient needs
  • The physical activities that you need to boost your heart performance
  • The toxins in our environment that you should know about and avoid
  • And how to better manage your stress to keep you calm and balanced

These are the pillars that enable you to prevent and reverse arterial plaque growth with a personalized plan for you.

Protecting your heart will also improve your circulation—giving you:

  • More energy
  • Better romantic and sexual performance
  • Better sports performance
  • Improved brain performance and processing speed
This retreat includes advanced medical testing to assess your arterial age & your risk for cardiovascular disease, including:

  • Carotid Intimal Media Thickness Testing; (Carotid IMT) uses non-invasive ultrasound testing to measure your arterial age and arterial plaque status
  • Nutrient intake evaluation; 3-day food questionnaire with detailed analysis to clarify your current nutrient intake allowing us to formulate a plan to ensure you meet your future nutrient requirements
  • Advanced laboratory studies; fasting lipid profile, hs-C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), fasting chemistry profile, and thyroid-stimulating hormone test (And if you have had other testing in the last 1-2 years, please send those results for me to review prior to the retreat.)
  • Max Pulse; this non-invasive testing assesses for cardiovascular disease and arterial stiffness
  • HeartMath;  testing to assess your ability to become calm and relaxed

The medical testing will be performed at the Masley Optimal Health Center.

Located at the Baycare Outpatient Center (Carillon) 900 Carillon Parkway, #201 St. Petersburg, FL 33716. Testing sessions will be scheduled for the day prior to the start of the retreat.

I will review your results during a group session with all of the participants at the 2-day retreat.

My clinic partner, Dr. Tarin Forbes, the medical director and president for the Masley Optimal Health Center will provide two presentations over the two days and also finalize a long-term medical plan for each of you during a group session.

Breakfast and lunch will be served both days at our home, as well as dinner the 1st evening of the retreat.

We can accommodate many food options, including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, or paleo food preferences.

Cooking demonstrations and tips will be included to help improve your cooking skills.

**Enrollment is limited to not more than 10 people to ensure we can address everyone’s questions and concerns.

We anticipate that this event will sell out, so enrollment will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
