Prevent, reverse and mitigate cardiovascular disease

The CDC reports the number one cause of deaths in the U.S. is cardiovascular disease. In fact, more men and women die from cardiovascular disease than the four leading causes of death combined. Here are some startling facts:

 

  • More than 800,000 Americans die each year of cardiovascular disease, making it the number one killer – not cancer.
  • In up to 40% of heart attack patients, traditional risk factors like elevated cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes are absent.
  • One in four Americans who suffer a heart attack will die from their first incident which is frequently their first and only indication of ill health

 

With this data, cardiovascular disease is the greatest health risk facing men and women today. Standard cholesterol tests often fail to predict cardiovascular disease risk, as around 60% of heart attack patients have normal cholesterol levels. Instead, chronic silent inflammation is increasingly recognized as a primary driver of cardiovascular disease.

Treatments and Strategies for Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention

Diagnosing CIRS and Mold Illness is a multi-phase process. We first confirm if you’ve being impacted by CIRS and then identity the source of the biotoxin(s). The core diagnostic tools used are:

Know your risk factors

through advanced cardiac tests that measure inflammation, genetic impacts, plaque and other risk factors.

Lifestyle modifications

The best and simplest preventative strategies are to eat a healthy diet consisting of whole, unprocessed foods and regular exercise.

Use CoQ10

This is a critical enzyme for energy creation at the cellular level, especially in the cardiac tissues. For patients at higher risk, we recommend 400 mg daily and for patients at lower risk, we recommend 200 mg daily. In a recent long-term study of CoQ10 in combination with selenium, the conclusion makes this point - “Long-term supplementation of selenium/coenzyme Q10 reduces cardiovascular mortality by 53% vs the control group who didn’t get CoQ10 and Selenium. The positive effects could also be seen in multiple lab tests and on echocardiography.”

Our Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Program

Advanced Cardiac Evaluation (ACE) Program

A combination of leading-edge biomarkers, diagnostic tools and the latest scientifically validated protocols to provide a comprehensive risk profile and detection of early stages of disease and to prevent and reverse these disease processes.

Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) Test with HeartSmartIMTplus™

A non-invasive, cost-effective diagnostic tool that uses ultrasound imaging to provide the earliest detection to prevent and reverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease formations which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

 

HeartSmartIMTplus™ specifically measures the intima media thickness of the carotid artery to determine the presence of sub-clinical atherosclerosis (cardiovascular disease that is undetected by other tests). It also assesses the presence of plaque and plaque characteristics which is important since “soft” plaque is more vulnerable to rupture and can break off causing a heart attack or stroke.

 

Early detection allows us to tailor an intervention program that can reverse and mitigate the disease process, greatly reducing your chance of having a stroke or heart attack. The test takes only ten minutes and is completed in our office.

Advanced Testing using True Health Lab (TH) Leading-Edge Testing

This test provides significantly more data to support early intervention than the standard lipid panel and other traditional markers. It’s reported that 60% of first time heart attack victims had a “normal” lipid panel. Using TH’s advanced testing has been proven to save lives by providing clinicians with advanced markers that help to identify cardiovascular disease (CVD) well ahead of traditional markers.

 

In a scientifically-validated study of over 7,300 patients, half were treated conventionally and half were treated using TH’s advanced markers. Heart attacks were 41% lower in the HDL group vs the control group and strokes were 17% lower than the control group. If you want to avoid these dreaded diseases, you want owe it to yourself to get the TH advanced testing.

Know your numbers before it’s too late!

If we have your attention and you are ready to schedule your CIMT today, please call (703) 822-5003 to get started.

 

  • CIMT Scan –$375.This is for patients that are sufficiently compelled to know their status. It includes the CIMT and a 30-minute follow-up visit.

 

  • Advanced Cardiac Evaluation – $700This is for patients who want to fully understand their cardiac risk profile. It includes the CIMT test plus a blood draw for a comprehensive lipid and inflammation profile from the leading Cleveland Heart Lab and Berkeley Heart Lab and a 1 1/2 hour visit with our Medical Director. Note that the cost shown does NOT include the cost of the lab tests as these are covered by most insurances. We will provide you with the appropriate diagnostic and test codes for you to determine coverage prior to the evaluation.

 

  • Comprehensive Initial Assessment with ACE $975.This is for patients who want to gain the benefit of our ACE Program coupled with our Comprehensive Initial Assessment for hormone balance, weight and body fat, gut issues, other chronic issues such as fibromyalgia and fatigue. Note that the Comprehensive Initial Assessment includes the review of a comprehensive lab panel but does NOT include the cost of the lab tests as these are covered by most insurances. We will provide you with the appropriate diagnostic and test codes for you to determine coverage prior to the evaluation.

"Words cannot describe how happy I am with your anti-aging program. I have not felt this good in YEARS. Now, at the age of 46, I have more energy and I look better than I have in YEARS…I can’t say enough about this gift you have given me and I hope you know how much I appreciate you. On top of all of this, you are truly a beautiful person inside and out who provides a level of caring I have never seen from a doctor, weight loss clinic or other health professional. "
