Heart, Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure Health
Heart disease, the second-highest cause of death in Canada, is highly preventable. Given that heart disease often takes time to develop, you can take initiatives to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Taking steps to maintain your health is much easier than waiting for your symptoms to occur and then starting treatments.
Prevention is essential if you have parents, grandparents, or family members who suffer from heart disease, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.
If you do suffer from any of the mentioned problems, then you can book your free 15 mins consult to see how you can prevent these conditions.
One of the early symptoms that usually shows up is high cholesterol, followed by high blood pressure. Further, this leads to a condition known as atherosclerosis (also known as “blocked arteries”). The next step is often angina (chest pain). Angina, if left untreated, can lead to thickening of the heart walls “congestive heart failure” and eventually cause heart attack and even death.
Even though heart disease prevention is the primary goal, many naturopathic modalities are very useful in the treatment of disease.
