In the USA, over eight million women live with heart disease. Approximately 64 percent of women who died suddenly of heart disease had no previous symptom. Women under the age of fifty-five are three times more likely than men to die after a heart attack. Today’s standards in medicine have not been effective in preventing the deaths of approximately half million women every year.
In this program, I’ll offer you the necessary tools to understand your risk factors, complete an evaluation to determine your future risk and offer you a plan to remove your name from those statistics.
You’ll receive a complete assessment of your risk factors. A battery of tests will be performed to evaluate your current cardiac health evaluating the amount of cholesterol plaque that has built up in your arteries, your hearts ability to pump blood, and an advanced lipid panel to help you understand your metabolic system.
Less than 50% of patients with a heart attack had “normal” cholesterol numbers on a traditional lipid panel. With this advanced metabolic test, you will receive information that goes beyond those numbers.
You will understand cholesterol, degree of inflammation on your body that contribute to heart disease, risk for diabetes, genetic tests, and other novel markers that increase your risk for heart disease as well as a better understanding of how your current diet might be affecting your body. Once your evaluation is complete, you will have a consultation that includes:
1. Analysis of the tests
2. Lifestyle plan including exercise, and dietary plan and necessary supplements to help in the preservation of a healthy heart. You will be educated on your current balance on critical enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are important for Heart Health.
By working with your body in every area of your life, we’ll help you make the smart choices that will safeguard your health and wellbeing for years to come. It’s all part of our unique approach to care, and it’s one that’s proven to meet the specific needs of women just like you. We’re even at the cutting edge when it comes to reproductive and pregnancy-related conditions that are thought to act as early warning signs for the development of heart disease.
