Cardiovascular disease is so much more than elevated cholesterol levels, and correcting high cholesterol levels with statin drugs (like Lipitor) does not correct the problem.
There are many blood markers and advanced imaging techniques available to assess a patient’s risk of cardiovascular disease. Once risk has been determined, ALETRIS naturopathic physicians design individualized prevention and treatment programs that target each specific risk factor.
Naturopathic techniques frequently lower cholesterol by 50 to 100 points without drugs. ALETRIS physicians enjoy treating and preventing cardiovascular disease because it is the second most common cause of death in the United States. We are passionate about keeping our patient’s hearts healthy.
ALETRIS naturopathic physicians customize treatment plans for each patient. Call our office to schedule an appointment with an ALETRIS naturopath.
