When I entered university, over time I developed a great love for studying the mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases and researching the most effective drugs for treating those diseases. In the course of my professional experience, I have been able to combine that interest with my initial passion for diagnosing, treating, and caring for patients. As a result, I have alternated my work in clinics as a cardiologist and internist with activities as a university lecturer and researcher. That has allowed me to unite the concepts acquired during my research with my clinical practice on patients. I dedicate a large part of my days to listening to and trying to understand patients, their habits, and their lifestyles. My goal has been to create a relationship of trust with patients to allow them to open themselves up to me and discuss their problems without hesitation, putting themselves on the same level.

But if observing and listening are essential for being a good doctor, there is another aspect that needs to be cultivated and which must go hand in hand: studying. Medicine evolves very quickly, therefore doctors always need to keep themselves updated on the innovations and discoveries that are occurring around the world. Contact with patients and professional development are two fundamental aspects of any doctor’s work. It is a basic combination; these two elements always need to be held together. Then, there is often an excess focus on diagnostic techniques, sending patients from one exam to another, sometimes in vain. A doctor’s excellence lies in analyzing and interpreting the data provided by machines.

My interest as a traditional medical specialist arose precisely from this increasingly evident contrast between the over-reliance on technology and clinical medicine, further fueled by the indiscriminate use of the internet to diagnose and treat diseases (you’ll often hear people say, “I read on the internet that...”). In addition to having examined thousands of patients, I have personally performed and published many scientific studies on drugs to examine if nature could hold the key to treating diseases. This interest was increased by my fascination with individuals who live a long time without ever getting sick. In their advanced age (80-90 years of age and older), these people maintain the same mental clarity and the same physical form over time. The secret certainly lies in their lifestyle and, in particular, in a diet rich in natural antioxidants (polyphenols), as the majority of scientific studies have demonstrated. Thanks to my extensive experience (35 years) studying, my knowledge of cardiovascular diseases, and an awareness of the importance of diet in cardiovascular prevention, after two years of studies, I developed and patented a natural dietary mixture, creating a multi-functional food (Powellnux) rich in polyphenols with a powerful antioxidant effect, capable of slowing aging, providing more energy, and having a positive effect on circulation. The goal is to use a scientifically certified natural approach together with traditional medicine to increase the efficacy of treatment and improve disease prevention.
