Ways to reduce your risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Getting lifestyle counseling and treatment from naturopathic doctors can reduce a person's risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

A yearlong Canadian study compared the effects of a typical medical care versus naturopathic lifestyle and diet counseling.

There was a 17% reduction in metabolic syndrome, which is a major risk factor for heart disease. One out of every six people can avoid metabolic syndrome by getting additional alternative care, greatly reducing their risk for stroke, heart attack, or death.
