Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in North America. Cardiovascular disease can appear in many different ways and often has many different contributing factors. Cardiovascular disease can be divided into 2 different categories of conditions. Cardio diseases and vascular diseases. Diseases of the heart muscle, valves, or rhythm control centers in the atrium or ventricles make up the Cardio diseases. Diseases of the coronary, cerebral, or peripheral arteries and veins make up the Vascular component of Cardiovascular disease. When treating and preventing cardiovascular disease it is crucial to fully assess the factors that are causing the disease so that appropriate and effective therapeutic targets can be identified. Without identifying the true causes of an individual’s ailments the treatment becomes a one size fits all blanket treatment. These treatments often lack results because they are not specific to the individual.
The Cardiovascular Health Program is designed to both treat and prevent the contributing factors that lead to the development and progression of both Cardio and Vascular Disease. The treatment protocol is designed after a Comprehensive Health Assessment is performed and the therapeutic targets have been determined.
