Most people aren't interested in cardiovascular health until they, or someone they know is facing a heart related condition. It's 2020, and heart disease is still the number one cause of death in the United States.
Emerging science is confirming what folk traditions worldwide have always known, that the heart is a place of connection; it aches, it breaks, it loves, and the path to cardiovascular health (and wellness in general) begins and ends with your heart.
What happens when we shift our perspective in this way?
What happens when we view cardiovascular health through the lens of connection, relationship, and emotion?
What happens when we broaden our approach to include natural remedies, not to replace allopathic treatments, but to complement them as a part of our overall cardiovascular care protocol?
It’s not a trade-off, these approaches work together.
While interventions such as statin drugs or surgery can work for some cases, many others would benefit from a more holistic approach to care – one that nurtures and supports the system instead of only trying to remove a problem.
The herbalist’s perspective sees the cardiovascular system through an ecological lens, identifying underlying vascular issues and treating them with the plants that are best indicated for your personal constitution.
The herbalist’s perspective unlocks immense opportunity to improve your cardiovascular health with safe, complementary, scientifically supported, and traditionally taught herbal remedies.
The problem with natural cardio care is while there is plenty of information available, there are few models to evaluate and create a cardio care routine yourself.
Most options include travel, expensive consultations, or just piecing together information yourself from a variety of sources.
You’ve either tried this already, or the thought of doing it all yourself is overwhelming – and this lack of access to natural cardio care is why Guido Masé has dedicated himself to creating a program based on the science, tradition, and clinical experience to guide you through creating a cardio care routine that works for you.
Introducing Natural Cardio Care, An Herbalist’s Perspective With Guido Masé.
Natural Cardio Care is a structured 6-week program designed to help you understand this fascinating aspect of your health, practice self-evaluation, and work with plants to improve your longevity and overall cardiovascular function.

What Students Are Saying
"What I love best about learning with Guido....
This is the second longer course I have taken with Guido in addition to a couple lectures in person. I have read his book "The Wild Medicine Solution" and his joint effort with Jovil King, "DIY Bitters" as well as his blog posts under, "A Radicle."
I consistently find his balance between science and inherent plant wisdoms refreshing and most important, very applicable. In a world that suffers from an epidemic of broken hearts, this course will provide you with a great set of tools from a diverse set of voices, not just Guido, from which to begin mending our broken hearted world..."
Lora Krall, Nurse Herbalist
"At first I was hesitant about spending the money. Now I’m trying to figure out how to travel from NJ to VT to get an appointment with him.
The Natural Cardio Care class was amazing. Life changing. I feel so empowered to make good choices for natural health care and for improving my lifestyle, bringing it more in harmony with nature.
Guido Mase’s ability to encompass and present information is phenomenal — that he can know so much from so many different perspectives — and assimilate it into a whole that makes sense — that is so valuable, and a real eyeopener.
I feel like a different person, because my horizons have been so expanded."
- Carol, a Guido student
"I appreciate Guido's balanced blend of science, tradition and practicality.
I've got a science background so validating studies and anatomic and physiology details are important to me but I like to know about how herbs were safety used by our ancestors.
Guido supplies this info and then goes on to explain how a busy person can get tons of herbs into themselves in easy, palatable ways. I'm repeating the course. It's that good."
- Vicky Peterson, a Guido student
