Diabetes and Cardiovascular Wellness

Are you living with diabetes, high cholesterol or other heart problems? The Diabetes and Cardiovascular Wellness program can help patients with these controllable and preventable conditions. Patients benefit from education about their condition(s), comprehensive lifestyle guidance, naturopathic perspectives on choices in medications, and recommendations for supplemental nutritional and botanical treatments.

While you might not associate diabetes with cardiovascular problems, what the two diseases have in common, in addition to medical correlations, is the power people have to control and prevent them. Significant research has shown that diet and lifestyle modifications are more effective in preventing type-2 diabetes than early pharmaceutical care. Large clinical research studies also show that lifestyle modifications decrease the incidence of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems.

Who should schedule an appointment for the program?

Those with type-1 or type-2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and those interested in learning more about their risk for these diseases and wanting preventive medical care.
