Cardiovascular HealthEvery beat counts
Live your best life with a healthy heartmitigate the Development of Heart Disease
Cardiovascular disease may be in your family history, but it doesn’t have to be in your future. 100,000. That’s the number of times your heart beats on average every day. By the time you reach 70, it will have beaten more than 2.5 billion times. That kind of hard work and dedication deserves an award! As we age, we become more susceptible to cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and even sexual dysfunction, but that doesn’t mean we should inevitably surrender and succumb to the diseases.
Risk factors for cardiovascular disease
Cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally. Cardiovascular diseases are a group of disorders involving the heart and blood vessels and common examples include coronary artery disease (i.e. heart attack), cerebrovascular diseases (i.e. strokes), peripheral arterial disease (i.e.. poor circulation in the legs) and venous thromboembolism (i.e. blood clots in the lungs and legs). These diseases cannot be cured, but treatment and prevention with functional medicine can improve your metabolism, oxidative mechanisms, blood fat circulation and hormonal balance, as well as maintain the optimal function of your heart and blood vessels.
The most important modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease include unhealth diet, physical inactivity, smoking, alcohol use, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and being over weight. By keeping your body and heart healthy, you can reduce your risk of sudden cardiovascular attacks with the goal of leading a healthy, drug-free life.
Maintain a High Quality of Life For Years to Come
While Western medicine has a myriad of medications used to control risk factors and treat cardiovascular disease, they are not without associated side effects. Moreover they are usually unable to reverse the damage that is done, as they only function to slow the progression to adverse events. As a result, often patients end up needing invasive treatments such as coronary angiograms, stenting, or even ultimately surgery to improve their lifestyle caused by cardiovascular disease.
Functional medicine plays a significant role in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease with a holistic evidence-based program, including lifestyle modification coaching, laboratory analysis to identify treatable targets, and supplementation with appropriate nutrients.
