We feel that a thorough work up is vital for developing an individualized program to support your cardiac health. After the work-up is completed we can put a treatment plan that is targeted specifically to each individual’s needs. The treatment plan may consist of supplementation, dietary intervention, exercise recommendation and possibly chelation. Each individual’s plan would be varied and specific for that person and their health goals. Those who will benefit from their program will reduce their risk of any cardiac disease but will also reduce their risk of other major illnesses such as dementia, stroke, arthritis, cancer, and diabetes. Patients frequently report physically feeling younger, stronger and happier.
Our work-up evaluates inflammation, oxidative stress, body composition, exercise, diet, nutrition and your immune system. Common examples of testing we might include in our work-up:
- Bloodwork – testing can include cholesterol, hs-CRP, fibrinogen, ferritin, copper, ascorbic acid, lipoproteins, CoQ10, Magnesium, Vitamin E (tocopherol levels).
- Aterial Stiffness – measures the stiffness of your arteries. The stiffer the arteries the higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
- Body Composition Analysis – to measure your fat percentage and total body water in relation to your lean body mass.
- Live Blood Cell Analysis – can show visual picture to patients of inflammation in a patients blood and oxidative stress.
