Cardiovascular Disease is a category of conditions that affects the heart or blood vessels. Some of the most commonly recognized are cardiomyopathy, coronary heart disease, cardiotoxicity, cardiac dysrhythmias, and inflammatory heart disease, but there are many other conditions that fall under this category.
The relationship between metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease has been well established. Conditions such as metabolic syndrome also predispose individuals to cardiovascular disease, often marked by central obesity, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type-2 diabetes.
Naturopathic Oncologists understand that there is a strong relationship between Metabolic Syndrome, Cardiovascular Disease, and increased cancer risk, compromised cancer outcomes and cancer recurrence. That is why a Licensed Naturopathic Physician with specialized training in Oncology is uniquely qualified to treat cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular conditions respond very well to Naturopathic treatment. When treating cardiovascular disease, we combine the most thoroughly researched natural therapeutics, including botanical medicine, nutritional supplementation, diet and exercise planning, relaxation/meditation techniques, and group support. Furthermore, when we address the underlying causes of cardiovascular disease, we can typically and simultaneously reverse Obesity, Type II Diabetes, and Metabolic Syndrome. Naturopathic interventions for cardiovascular disease have been shown to reduce the risk of other concomitant diseases, such as cancer, type II diabetes, heart attack, and erectile dysfunction. And if you are currently recovering from any of these conditions, Naturopathic interventions have been shown to reduce the risk of reoccurrence.
