We spoke with Dr. Valverde Navas about his extensive career and his recommendations for day-to-day patient care.

1. In your practice, what are the main conditions that your patients present?

In the hospital, the most common conditions currently seen in consultations are respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, circulatory, metabolic, and infectious diseases throughout the year. There are also other common conditions, such as urinary issues, which tend to worsen during more challenging periods like summer.

2. You also engage in public outreach through various media outlets, such as radio. What are the main concerns expressed by listeners and what do you recommend to them?

During these broadcasts and throughout the years of collaborating on various health-focused programs, listeners have expressed their main concerns about high blood pressure (HBP), diabetes, cholesterol, digestive problems, osteoarthritis, colds, tinnitus, headaches, and dizziness.

These platforms provide me with the opportunity to directly address day-to-day queries and offer advice from my perspective. Of course, in cases of serious conditions or chronic diseases, I always recommend that they consult their primary care physician, as they are the ones familiar with their medical history.

3. Do you recommend supplementing the diet with dietary supplements? In which situations?

Definitely, dietary supplements are highly useful thanks to the properties of their active ingredients and nutrients, which are often not obtained adequately through diet alone or due to specific underlying health conditions causing deficiencies. Of course, they should always be accompanied by a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

Given the wide range and high quality of their natural products, I recommend those from MARNYS, particularly their lines dedicated to the immune, metabolic, and energy systems, among many others.

4. What are the active ingredients that can be particularly beneficial in these cases?

I frequently use Omega 3's effectiveness, immune-modulating supplements for the immune system, and targeted supplements for the specific condition patients consult me about, especially for improving joint cartilage degeneration in cases of osteoarthritis, for example.

5. In such cases, which MARNYS dietary supplements do you usually recommend?

For Omega 3 supplementation, I recommend supplements with a high concentration of Omega 3. Regarding immune-related concerns, which tend to arise mainly during seasonal transitions, I suggest giving proper attention to them throughout the year using active ingredients such as vitamin C, especially in liposomal drink format, as well as Immunoglobulin-rich colostrum, Shiitake and Reishi mushrooms.

For bone and joint health, supplements containing chondroitin, glucosamine, calcium, marine collagen, vitamins, and minerals are undoubtedly the most suitable.
