Dr James Ehrlich MD - BergaMet Ambassador

Dr James Ehrlich MD

 

Dr James Ehrlich is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Colorado, Denver (Endocrinology) and a former Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of medicine at the George Washington University Medical Center in Washington DC. He is the co-founder of the Society of Atherosclerosis Imaging and Society of Cardiovascular CT and is an active contributor to and a task force member of SHAPE- the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication.

Most of his research has focused on the monitoring of sub-clinical atherosclerosis in insulin resistant states and in Type 1 diabetes. He has experienced significant personal benefit from using BergaMet 

Dr. James Ehrlich is the nation’s top authority in new technologies for the early detection of disease and has tested 50,000 Americans at high tech screening centers he founded in 4 US cities. Passionate about prevention and always challenging the “reactive, late disease based model” of healthcare, Ehrlich has become a leading patient advocate arming proactive citizens with strategic advice and the best tools for detecting and preventing our leading and often silent killers.

The first US Ambassador to the BergaMet brand heading up research and recipient of the Accadamia del Bergamotto Award for excellence. 

"Like 80 million Americans, I have struggled to overcome high cholesterol and my own case of metabolic syndrome, including high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar and an expanding waistline. Frankly, with a family history (brother and father) of early heart disease, I have been very worried.

So like many of my patients, I have been taking a daily statin cholesterol drug, a blood pressure pill, eating better and exercising more — all very important things to do.

 

Now, I have added BergaMet, twice per day before meals, and dramatically lowered my medication doses. My cholesterol has never been better, and I have lost a few pounds!" *

Graduated as a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with Honours. Has presented at the American College of Cardiology Meeting. Performed the first mutiplane trans-oesophageal echo-cardiogram in Australia. 

Regular lecturer on Preventative Cardiology to a wide range of groups throughout the community. Author of seven books, including several best sellers. He has experience with over 5,000 patients on our product and has had for some 4 years.

Dr Walker has a medical practice in Lindfield on the upper north shore of Sydney. He provides a service in all aspects of echocardiography, focusing on stress echocardiography which is a well accepted, accurate method for assessing heart disease, not involving irradiation or injections. There are presently no other stress echo services on the upper North Shore.

In 1992 Dr Walker commenced stress echocardiography and has since performed 15,000 studies, over 30,000 trans thoracic echoes and 2,000 trans oesophageal echoes. 

Dr Ross Walker was recently awarded the prestigious Accadamia del Bergamotto Award in Italy.

“BergaMet is the most important natural substance for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease that has been available over the past thirty to fifty years.

I have prescribed BergaMet to around 5,000 patients and recommend anyone over 50 should take this as a preventative agent."

"The longer you take it, the greater the benefit.” *

His research activity, carried out in many research centers worldwide (mainly the William Harvey Research Institute in London directed by the Nobel Prize Sir John Vane, and Research Fellow and consultant for Cardiovascular Pharmacology at Metaphore Pharm Inc St Louis, USA), that mainly addressed and studied the effect of antioxidant compounds in protecting against atherosclerosis and vascular injury. 

Prof.  Mollace discovered first, in 2006, the properties of bergamot juice in experimental models of vascular injury published in peer reviewed top ranking scientific journals. For his scientific work, Prof. Mollace was awarded with important international prizes and honour. He has published, to date, more than 100 papers and book chapters in the field of cardiovascular pharmacology.

“I tried many sources of Bergamot but found it was ONLY Calabrian Citrus Bergamot that had the unique polyphenols that are necessary to reduce cholesterol, blood glucose and treat metabolic syndrome and which are shown and are continued to be shown in our research. 

There are other products out there, but none of these work in association with my and Dr Ross Walker’s work, and do not follow our continued research.” *
