Naturopathic DOCTOR GIVES TIPS TO PREVENT HEART DISEASE
Before giving my recommendation, let me explain what Naturopathic physicians do. Naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic physicians help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to identify and remove barriers to good health by helping to create a healing internal and external environment.
Along with good diet and exercise, certain supplements can help decrease the risk of different types of heart disease.
My recommendation: Higher intake of magnesium has been associated with lower blood pressure and rates of heart disease, stroke, and metabolic syndrome. Dietary sources of Magnesium are green leafy vegetables (particularly spinach), nuts, avocados, whole grains, legumes (beans and peas), soy beans, chocolate, and some seafood.
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to cardiovascular disease.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), may be beneficial because it is an antioxidant and helps the body produce energy at a cellular level.
