Cardiovascular Wellness

Your heart is undeniably one of the most important organs of your body. Along with your blood vessels, your cardiovascular system needs to remain healthy to ensure that blood is properly circulating and delivering life giving nutrients to every cell of your body. When the cardiovascular system is compromised by narrowed or blocked vessels you may experience chest pain, stroke or heart attack.

Other forms of cardiac dysfunction include disorders that effect the heart’s muscle, valves or rhythm. While more advanced forms for cardiovascular disease will require management by a specialist, there are measures you can take to prevent cardiovascular disease and reverse mild cardiovascular disease. If you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or a family history of cardiovascular disease, a naturopathic cardiac wellness consultation may be indicated for you as many forms of cardiovascular disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices!


Diabetes occurs when the sugar that cells use for energy can’t get into cells and instead remain in the blood. You may have heard this referred to as “high blood sugar”. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, is required to give sugar access to your body’s cells. There are a few reasons that diabetes occurs. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas fails to make insulin. Type 2 diabetes occurs when over consumption of sugar and foods that turn to sugar in the body, has created insulin receptor resistance. In essence the over-abundance of sugar in the blood has worn out the insulin receptors and they no longer function properly. Both types of diabetes result in the body’s cells being starved of the glucose (sugar) that they need to function.

Type 1 diabetes requires replacing insulin in the body for the lifetime of the individual. Type 2 diabetes may be controlled and in some cases reversed with diet, lifestyle changes and therapeutic supplementation. Patients with either type of diabetes can benefit from naturopathic care. If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes or a family history of diabetes, a naturopathic consult could be the first step in managing or preventing the disease.

Genetic Testing

Each person on earth contains a completely unique genome. Genes are made up of DNA which provide instructions to the body on how to function. Knowing your exact “set of instructions” can help navigate how to properly support your body. 

Genes operate in different ways during different stages of life depending on the age and health of the body. Genetic testing has produced some popular consumer websites, which can be a lot of fun, but can sometimes lead to a misunderstanding of the role that genetics play in our body. 

Medical grade genetic testing can provide more accurate results and, with the guidance of a doctor, can be a valuable tool in fully understanding your individual needs.
