Integrative Medicine for the Heart

Total mind-body wellness for better heart health

Whether you are being treated for a heart condition or just want to focus on improving your overall heart health, our integrative medicine specialists can help you reach your goals.

What is integrative medicine?  

Sometimes conventional treatments of medical conditions fail to make patients feel completely well. When this happens, we are here to help you determine how you can make positive lifestyle changes to improve the quality of your life. By focusing on total mind-body wellness, we offer techniques such as vitamin and mineral therapy, nutrition intervention, neurofeedback and detoxification.

We also help those who want to take preventive steps to ensure optimal heart health. Those at risk for developing heart disease benefit by taking action early.

Health evaluation

First, we recommend that you get a heart health assessment. The information gained from that assessment will help us create a program to fit your individual needs. We will meet with you to get an in-depth medical history to identify when and how your health may have changed.

We may recommend additional testing to provide the best treatment and outcomes. Possible blood tests include:

  • Individualized genetics
  • Vitamin, mineral and essential fatty acid panels
  • Immune markers
  • Wide variety of hormonal systems
  • Neurochemical imbalances
  • Toxicity presence

Tailored nutrition intervention

Diet plays a vital role in preventing diseases and managing the symptoms of existing medical conditions, including heart disease. If you have already developed heart health issues, the foods you eat can help reduce symptoms and strengthen your cardiovascular system.

Depending on your current health and test results, our nutrition experts will create an individualized diet. We consider factors such as food allergies and intolerances, exercise and sleep habits, and environment and genetic history.

For those who want to learn more about preparing heart-healthy meals, we offer classes in our Healing Foods Kitchen. Classes are designed to help you gain confidence, knowledge and skills in preparing wholesome foods that can prevent and alleviate illnesses.
