Astonishing approximately 659,000 people die each year from heart disease in the United States. As hard as it is to believe, that’s one person every 36 seconds. And sadly, as is often the case with conventional medicine, cardiovascular disease in East Hampton, NY is rarely treated at the holistic level. Instead, symptoms are most often treated with prescription medications, many of which are laden with adverse side effects and do little in terms of addressing the actual cause of the problem.
A holistic approach to cardiovascular health involves both the treatment and prevention of disease. Holistic heart disease treatments consider the entire individual, including factors such as diet, activity level, metabolism, and emotional well-being. As opposed to systematically treating symptoms with medication, traditional focuses on reverting the body’s qi, or life energy, back to a state of balance and harmony. At Rejuvenation Health Wellness Center in East Hampton, you will work together with global Chinese medicine experts to create a holistic treatment and wellness plan for both the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular conditions. If you suffer from persistent symptoms with no obvious cause, or if you’ve taken other conventional approaches to heart health with little results, traditional Chinese medicine may be an option for you.
Dr. Curatola and our team of naturopathic doctors are also highly trained in pinpointing causal chains in the body that lead to inflammation, which is one of the leading causes of heart disease. Inflammation promotes narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis), which increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and a variety of other serious cardiovascular conditions. Most heart conditions show up early in other parts of the body via inflammatory-induced symptoms; thus, it’s imperative to identify and eliminate sources of chronic inflammation as early as possible.
For many patients, a major avenue of inflammation comes from the digestive system. The human gut houses billions of active bacteria in a pH-specific microbiome; when the gut microbiome falls out of balance, bacteria and/or their metabolites can escape the digestive system’s microenvironment and cause widespread inflammation throughout the body.
