According to the American Heart Association, about 62 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease (CVD), which can include high blood pressure, coronary heart disease (heart attack and chest pain), stroke, and congestive heart failure, and close to 1 million die from such conditions every year. CVD claims more lives annually than the next seven leading causes of death combined. The statistics for women are quite sobering:
You may be surprised to hear that 150 years ago, heart disease was almost unheard of. Cardiovascular disease is a relatively new disease. Stressful lifestyles, processed foods, environmental toxins and obesity have all played a part in fostering this disease.
We have been told that Cholesterol is the culprit and that cholesterol lowering drugs (statins) are the answer. However, besides the fact that an overwhelming amount of research now has confirmed that this Cholesterol Myth invented in the 1950s is inaccurate, Statin drugs don’t address the real problem and in many cases actually cause more harm than good.
Costly complex technological treatments and procedures after a lifetime of poor diet, poor lifestyle decisions, toxic exposure to environmental pollutants and disrupted hormonal balance are not the solution. The approach to reducing the overall incidence of cardiovascular disease and death needs to start well before the end stages of the disease. It seems reasonable to ask: Is there a better way?
There is a major shift in thinking regarding treatment and, more importantly, prevention of cardiovascular disease. Restore Health Center’s Cardiovascular Program focuses on preventing or reversing existing cardiovascular disease. Our treatment plan will address the following:
