Personalize Your Treatment Plan
Most people know that Heart Disease is a leading cause of death for both men and women in the USA. Many people also know that other health conditions like being overweight, having high blood pressure or diabetes make it more likely that one can develop heart disease. And of course, one’s lifestyle decisions of poor food choices, lack of physical exercise, excessive alcohol use and smoking also increase the risk.
But did you know that over half of those having heart attacks have absolutely normal cholesterol numbers? Or that there are several other markers for identifying heart disease risk that are not routinely tested, but can be?
Did you know that Type 2 Diabetes can be 100% prevented through the thoughtful and consistent application of targeted nutrition and exercise that helps regulate your blood sugar and insulin levels? Did you also know that diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome & insulin resistance share the same underlying causes and therefore respond to the same treatment measures? Most people don’t realize that these common health issues can even be reversed in many cases – even if you have a family history.
Even though you may have been told that “it runs in the family”, living with high cholesterol, blood pressure or diabetes is not inevitable.
There is a lot that can be done to put you back in the driver’s seat and in charge of your health. The standard answers and approaches that most clients get don’t cut it in terms of successfully reversing these disease trends. Curing and reversing calls for a much more comprehensive approach that looks at “all of you” – not only your diet and exercise, although that’s a good start.
Lets consider whether there are unresolved toxicity issues, hormonal imbalances or methylation problems that are driving the process of inflammation. Lets go beyond the cholesterol numbers with advanced testing to determine your real risk level of heart disease.
