HEART DISEASE

Individualized Integrated Care for People with Cardiovascular Concerns

Your heart is more than just cholesterol and blood pressure- your heart should lead you through your relationships and direct your actions. Keeping our hearts healthy requires attention and self-love. We know more today about how select bio-active foods and specific activity reduces our risk for heart attack and stroke. Recent research shows natural treatments can improve the function of the heart! Yet, interactions can occur between medications and natural treatments that may be harmful. All of these factors demand an individualized approach to assessment and treatment.

Who Do We Treat?

  • People who have been told they are at risk for cardiovascular disease or who want to know their risk for developing cardiovascular disease.
  • People who are newly diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or congestive heart failure who want to understand all of their options.
  • People interested in improving their diet and lifestyle to reduce risk factors for heart disease, heart attack, or stroke.
  • People receiving conventional care for their concerns but want to know whether additional treatments exist.
  • People who want to know if they have nutritional deficiencies that may be affecting their heart health.

Communication is Essential

We communicate with your cardiologist, primary care provider, and other members of your health care team to ensure you receive the best therapies from both conventional and naturopathic medicine.
