Our doctors understand how important your heart is to your overall health, we
provide a number of services to promote heart health. Our clinic specializes in
natural treatments including Acupuncture, diet, and the use of supplements.
Acupuncture works to balance the body as a whole, promoting all organ functions
during targeted sessions. Acupuncture can reduce the everyday stress you feel,
leaving you with an overall sense of calm. Once you feel more relaxed, you can
sleep better allowing your body to restore itself more easily. The World Health
Organization has deemed acupuncture a great adjunctive treatment for
hypertension. Acupuncture sessions enable your body to release natural
hormones, lowering you blood pressure allowing your heart to function at a more
relaxed rate. Acupuncture along with other holistic health treatments are effective
modalities to co-treat cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the #1 cause of the
death in Americans. 20% of deaths involving heart disease are directly related to
smoking cigarettes. Acupuncture can help you quit smoking by easing the
withdrawal symptoms. It can ease the jitters, restlessness, irritability and cravings.
Acupuncture also assists with the body’s natural detoxification process. It also
allows your body to maintain a healthy weight through regulating elimination and
allowing your body to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients from your food
leaving you energized. We also provide guidance with specific diets tailored to
your needs. Healthier diets cut down on the unnecessary fats and added
hormones we are often exposed to. By regulating the sugars, both natural and
synthetic, as well as the amount of fats, hormones and carbs your body is
absorbing, you are providing yourself with the best diet for your body type.
Arranging your diet to include leaning organic meats and organic produce can
help balance your body’s nutritional intake. By allowing your body to have the
vitamins and minerals it needs, you are promoting optimal health.
