Natural treatments including herbs, supplements and lifestyle changes can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease due to high blood pressure and cholesterol.
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death globally. It generally refers to conditions that involve the heart or blood vessels and one of its major precursors is plaque buildup, otherwise known as atherosclerosis. This can often be a result of lifestyle factors including high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, inactivity, obesity, high cholesterol, poor diet and excess alcohol.
Despite its high prevalence, it’s been estimated that as high as 90% of heart disease is preventable! Naturopathic Doctors can help prevent and treat cardiovascular disease by getting to the root cause and empowering patients to make lasting changes. We always ensure that recommendations made won’t interact or interfere with any of your existing treatment plans.
