Stephen Devries, MD
Associate Professor Division of Cardiology, Feinberg School of Medicine Northwestern University
Dr. Stephen Devries is a preventive cardiologist with a longstanding interest in integrative approaches. He attended medical school and completed his training in internal medicine at the University of Michigan. Dr. Devries went on to cardiovascular subspecialty training at Washington University and later completed a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. Dr. Devries was recruited to Northwestern University in 2007, where he is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology and has a busy preventive cardiology clinic emphasizing integrative approaches. Prior to coming to Northwestern, he served as director of the Integrative Program for Heart Disease Prevention at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Devries previously authored the weekly column "Heart Beat" in the Chicago Sun-Times and lectures nationally on integrative approaches to prevention of heart disease. Most recently, he authored a book published "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Cholesterol."

"The potency of combining individual cardio-protective foods is substantial - and perhaps even stronger than many of the medications and procedures that have been the focus of modern cardiology," said study co-author Dr. Stephen Devries of the Gaples Institute for Integrative Cardiology in Deerfield, Ill., and the Division of Cardiology at Northwestern University. "Results from trials emphasizing dietary fat reduction were a disappointment, prompting subsequent studies incorporating a whole-diet approach with a more nuanced recommendation for fat intake."
Based on the data from several influential studies, which are reviewed in the article, Dalen and Devries concluded that emphasizing certain food groups, while encouraging people to decrease others, is more cardio-protective and overall better at preventing heart disease than a blanket low-fat diet.

"Some say they feel a change in exercise tolerance," said preventive cardiologist Stephen Devries, executive director of the non-profit Gaples Institute for Integrative Cardiology, who was not involved in the study. "For high-risk people, there does seem to be an overall advantage in taking a statin. But it may come with a cost - so let's not put statins in the drinking water."
To learn more about cholesterol, nutrition and other heart-related issues, attend the upcoming Trib U workshop "A Healthy Heart" which I'll be cohosting with Dr. Devries.
