The First Step Is A Complete Assessment

The most important question to ask is, what is the cause of your cardiovascular concerns?  Are there preventable factors (e.g. weight gain, diabetes, stress), is it a genetic predisposition or the result of acute or chronic stress?  Our Naturopathic Doctors approach to treating heart-related concerns starts with a complete health and lifestyle review along with identifying your overall cardiovascular risk using the framingham risk score.
