Heart disease remains the second most common cause of death in both men and women in Canada. The scary thing is that heart disease and high blood pressure are often asymptomatic – meaning you don’t always feel when something is wrong. The good news is that many of the risk factors for developing and worsening of heart disease are modifiable – you can lower your risk!
Whether you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure, have been newly diagnosed with a heart condition, or have been living with one for a long time – naturopathic medicine can help. Naturopathic treatments can be used on their own, or safely combined with heart medications to manage nutrient depletion and side effects that they may cause.

By identifying the key factors that affect you, we can get to the heart of the matter to help improve lab values, manage side effects of medications and get you feeling better, sooner.
