Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number 1 killer in the United States.  Part of this statistic is due to the fact that there are so many conditions that affect the heart:  high blood pressure, heart attack, congestive heart failure, stroke, arrhythmia, and atherosclerosis, to name a few.  More often than not, these conditions can be prevented and treated with proper protocols.  Unfortunately, most patients aren’t being “treated”, they are being medicated.


While medication may be necessary at certain stages, they aren’t going to correct the situation in the long term.  Statins will not take away built up plaque in the arteries, nor will blood thinners.  Too often, these medications are just delaying the inevitable, but they aren’t reversing anything.

We take a different approach to heart disease.  When someone has high blood pressure, we want to know why their blood pressure is high.  What’s not working in the body?  Is it kidney function?  Diet?  Or is it just stress? Medication can be used temporarily to lower the blood pressure, but in the mean time, we want to discover and correct the underlying issue so that they don’t need the medication.  When we have a patient with plaque in their arteries, we work towards removing that blockage, instead of giving them a lifetime sentence of medication.


The heart is just like any other organ, it responds to your internal and external environment.  Toxins in your body and in your outside world will affect the health of your heart.  Inflammation and stress will play a vital role, as well. When it comes to the heart, you need to look at every system in the body. Figure out what’s working, what’s not working, and then address those underlying conditions.
