Dr. Houston is the director of the Hypertension Institute and Vascular Biology, medical director of the Division of Human Nutrition, and medical director of Clinical Research at the Hypertension Institute in Nashville, Tennessee. He has served as an associate clinical professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. Dr. Houston has presented over 10,000 lectures, nationally and internationally, and published over 250 medical articles, scientific abstracts in peer reviewed medical journals, books, and book chapters. He has published nine books, including “The Hypertension Handbook,” and his newest book, “Controlling High Blood Pressure through Nutrition, Nutritional Supplements, Lifestyle and Drugs.”

Well, it’s a great pleasure to have you on the show Mark, to talk about your experience and knowledge in the field of hypertension and tie in Telomere biology into that. And I know we’ve had some discussions before at meetings, and I’m always fascinated to get your take on cardiovascular disease from an integrative and sort of aging standpoint. So I just like to get started by asking you how your approach integrates sort of aspects of aging Telomere biology into the diagnosis and management of hypertension and risk stratification, in your daily practice?
