The four major killers of Americans in order are heart attacks, cancer, strokes and use of pharmaceuticals (100,000 hospital deaths per year). The majority of deaths caused by heart attacks and strokes are directly caused by vascular disease. Vascular disease is directly related to elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and elevated insulin.
Vascular health is as complicated as the environment which stimulates a cell's DNA expression to produce chemicals which lead to it's own destruction. The effective treatment is as simple as taking the proper supplements and eating whole, natural foods to stop this deadly DNA expression and reverse cardiovascular disease.
Dr. Mark Houston, a clinician and professor at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine known for his work in reversing hypertension and the vascular disease caused by hypertension, "firmly believes cardiovascular disease and hypertension is a preventable disease in at least 50% of the people. Hypertension and elevated cholesterol is a direct relationship between genetics and one's environment. Micronutrients and macronutrients are crucial in preventing hypertension and preventing end organ damage. This nutrient-genetic interaction can have a positive or negative effect on end organ damage"
Healthcare is in a transitory period. We are living in the genomic century. We are discovering genetic uniqueness that can be influenced by micronutrients and macronutrients. One remedy does not fit all. We are able to influence gene expression in an effort to preempt disease, keeping people away from disease endpoints like cardiovascular disease. Managing health upstream to reverse and prevent disease is not only a wish, but a tangible reality. There is no age too old not to benefit from this complete view health and the natural means to achieve it.
The treatment of cardiovascular disease does not have to begin with a heart attack. Here, we do not chase the numbers of your blood pressure or cholesterol levels just to lower these numbers with pills, which could actually make your overall condition worse. We use a customized approach and work with tapering off medications while using natural methods to reduce hypertension and cholesterol as we monitor other markers of cardiovascular inflammation and disease. There is an alternative choice.
Chelation (key-LAY-shun) comes from the Greek word chele meaning “to claw” or “to bind.” Chelation therapy is used to remove unnecessary and toxic metals, and is employed by a growing number of physicians to reverse the process of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
