Going Beyond Traditional Cardiac Care
Focused on the Heart of Functional Medicine
Cardiac Functional Medicine is a 360-degree approach to preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease. Functional cardiology does not isolate the cardiovascular system from the rest of the body. Instead, this approach dives deeply into the body’s health as a whole to uncover underlying, system-wide factors that are causing cardiovascular dysfunction.
With Cardiac Functional Medicine you are not just going through the motions until you end up in the E.R. with a heart attack or stroke. Rather, Cardiac Functional Medicine methods are based upon a deep understanding of disease prevention with 1-on-1 care and laser-focused attention to detail that can pinpoint the early causes of cardiovascular disease and begin working on reducing and reversing the disease at its core.
Cardiac Functional Medicine combines the best traditional medicine approaches with holistic lifestyle protocols that can drastically change the trajectory of what many think is an irreversible life-limiting disease.
