The Five Key Steps to Good Health

Dr Ross Walker is a highly experienced cardiologist who has dedicated his life to preventive cardiology. Over the years, he has developed five pillars of health that he believes can make a big difference to our overall wellbeing. In this blog, we’ll explore each of these steps in detail.

Step 1: Lose the Addictions 

Dr Walker believes that addictions are a major barrier to good health. Whether you smoke, drink too much alcohol, or take drugs, you need to take steps to overcome your addiction. Seeking professional help can be very useful in this regard, but you need to start by acknowledging that you have a problem.

Step 2: Get Enough Good Sleep

According to Dr Walker, getting seven to eight hours of restful sleep every night is as good for your health as not smoking. Poor sleep has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, so it’s important to make sleep a priority.

Step 3: Eat Less, Eat Natural

Dr Walker is a strong advocate of the traditional Mediterranean diet, which is based on good quality fats, protein, and carbs, and includes olive oil and fish. This diet is low in total calories and is a great way to stay healthy without having to resort to fad diets.

Step 4: Exercise

Exercise is vital for good health, both physically and mentally. Dr Walker recommends a mix of cardio and weight training for best results.

Step 5: Find the Best Drug in the World – Happiness 

Finally, Dr Walker believes that happiness is the key to good health. Research has shown that lifelong contentment is much more powerful than lifestyle factors when it comes to preventing cardiovascular disease. Learning to find happiness in your life can be the most valuable step you take towards better health.


Dr Ross Walker has spent many years studying preventive cardiology, and his five pillars of health are a valuable tool for anyone looking to improve their wellbeing. By losing addictions, getting enough sleep, eating a natural diet, exercising regularly, and finding happiness in your life, you can take control of your health and enjoy a better quality of life.
