It is an exciting time for those who want to increase their longevity and extend their Healthspan. Billions of dollars are being invested to discover the secrets of anti-aging therapies and strategies – and outstanding scientists worldwide are making exciting discoveries. However, sorting through the truly promising developments from the bogus claims and false promises is challenging – especially without an expert guide.
To help those seeking an expert guide to help understand the benefits and risks of therapies and strategies for longevity, Dr. Hurst has created the Longevity Master Program.
The Longevity Master Program is for those who want the best out of life – who want to feel great, look great, avoid disease, and live as long – and as well – as possible.
In the Longevity Master Program, you will have direct access and regular contact with Dr. Hurst as your Healthspan Guide to develop your cutting-edge approach to longevity and accomplish your health and longevity goals.
If you seek an expert guide for your longevity strategy, it’s time to speak to the team at HealthspanMD™. As the top cardiologist Phoenix has to offer, Dr. Hurst specializes in helping people lower their risk of heart disease, stroke, atrial fibrillation, kidney disease, dementia, and early death – and increase their longevity.

If your goal is to increase your longevity, it’s important to know three of the major risks you may face for early death: Dementia, stroke, and cancer.
If you’re concerned about your risk for dementia – possibly you have a family history of dementia or you’ve had genetic testing that shows a higher risk for dementia – and you are looking for ways to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease, you’re not alone.
Likewise, stroke is a devastating health problem. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States and one of the leading causes of disability. Stroke occurs when brain cells die, most commonly due to lack of blood flow, but also can occur when bleeding occurs in the brain.
And few words can inspire fear like, “You have cancer,” with good reason. Cancer’s ominous reputation is well deserved. It is the 2nd leading cause of death (more than 600,000 deaths per year) and over 1.8 million people a year in the US are diagnosed with cancer, particularly those who do not receive preventive cancer screening.
Dementia prevention, prevention of stroke, and primary prevention of cancer are some of the most common goals of HealthspanMD™ patients, but unfortunately, the rates of all three are increasing.
However, what is important to know is that there are remarkably effective ways to prevent stroke, dementia, and cancer. HealthspanMD™ specializes in working with people like you to provide a personalized, comprehensive, and connected care approach to lowering the risk of cancer, stroke, heart disease, dementia, and early death – focusing on the ten most powerful factors for preventing stroke – which we call the Healthspan-10™.
It’s probably no surprise to you that a healthy lifestyle is helpful in preventing cancer, stroke, and other conditions that threaten your longevity. But you may be surprised at how powerful your choices are in lowering your risks.
One study showed that those who were able to optimize at least 5 measures of health were 58% less likely to die of cancer than those who only had one or less good health measures. The Healthspan-10 was developed to address 10 of these measures, including:
HealthspanMD’s Dr. Hurst says:
“Many people believe that healthcare is broken – and I understand why they feel that way – too many are seeing specialist after specialist, being prescribed medication after medication, paying copay after copay… and not getting better.
But I believe it’s important to understand what healthcare does well, and what it doesn’t do well so you don’t end up in the cycle of feeling unwell, seeing a doctor only to get prescribed more meds, and not addressing the root causes of your problems. Let alone learning how to fix it.
Here’s what you need to know about healthcare to avoid repeating this cycle over and over again:
Healthcare is quite good at taking care of acute health issues – and if you are having a heart attack, or stroke, or have acute leukemia or are critically ill with COVID – there is no better place to be than in a major healthcare system – but if your goal is to get well, stay well, treat the root causes, heal your metabolism, that’s just not what healthcare is designed to do.
Here’s the point I want to make – expert medical care is essential to our health – thank goodness we have such great doctors, hospitals, medicine, procedures to save our lives when we need it – but expert medical care is only one tool in your toolbox – and if you want to heal your metabolism – if you want the amazing benefits of having a healthy metabolism – you need more than the typical “medicate and operate” band-aid approach. You have to also address things outside of the doctor’s office to live a long and vital life.”
