If you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure, you likely already know that these conditions increase your risk of having a heart attack or a stroke.
Heart attacks and strokes can be life-threatening. They are also very expensive for the public health care system to treat once they have occurred.
That’s why medical doctors prescribe many drugs to prevent these conditions from happening in the first place.
If you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol and/or high blood pressure, you are likely already taking a statin drug, a blood thinner, a diuretic (water pill), and possibly a second drug for lowering your blood pressure.
These drugs can be quite effective, but they can also cause unpleasant side effects, such as irreversible muscle weakness, easy bruising, and lightheadedness.
The Benefits Of Naturopathic Services For Cardiovascular Health
What I have experienced while studying and working as a naturopathic doctor is that dietary and lifestyle changes are sometimes sufficient to treat cardiovascular concerns without the need for prescription medication. Herbs and supplements can be added for even greater effect.
If you have been told by your medical doctor that you need to start taking prescription medication to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol, or that you need to thin your blood to reduce your risk of stroke or heart attack, find out what natural means are available to help you achieve the same results without the unpleasant side effects of prescription drugs.
Over time, I have seen that naturopathic treatment can help you
- lower your cholesterol
- lower your blood pressure
- improve your quality of life
- reduce or alleviate your conditions, sometimes without the need for prescription medication
Naturopathic medicine can help treat the following cardiovascular conditions: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiac arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure, angina pectoris, intermittent claudication, venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and others.
