Integrative Cardiovascular Care

Cardiovascular disease continues to be the #1 cause of death in the United States and it is called the silent killer for a reason.  Many people are not aware they have cardiovascular disease before it is too late.  Unfortunately, many aspects of our modern lives contribute to the insidious development of cardiovascular disease (poor diet, stress, lack of exercise and environmental exposures)

Who is Integrative Cardiovascular Care for?

Everyone!  If you have a heart, it is in your best interest to keep it as healthy as possible.  That said, if you suspect you may have or have already been diagnosed with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease or have had a heart attack or stroke, integrative cardiovascular care is for you.

What exactly is Integrative Cardiovascular Care?

The standard lipid panel and in-office blood pressure aren’t good enough anymore!  We have much better, research supported laboratory tests available that are necessary for truly understanding cardiovascular risk stratification.

Some Factors considered

  • Advanced Lipid Screening

  • Inflammation Assessment

  • Genetic Liabilities

  • Stress Assessment

  • Diet

  • Exercise
