Heart disease is a collection of gradually increasing symptoms that affect the heart’s ability to pump blood through the body. Indicators that heart disease is developing include high cholesterol, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis (blocked arteries) and angina (chest pain). If left untreated, these symptoms can lead to thickening of the heart walls, congestive heart failure, a heart attack, and even death.
Dr. Cage says, “When I see a patient with heart disease I always start with a thorough history that looks at their diet and lifestyle factors because heart disease is one hundred percent related to diet and lifestyle. I order basic blood work to look at lipid levels, homocysteine levels and C-reactive protein levels. I order an electrocardiogram to look at the electrical conductivity of the heart, and a Doppler echocardiogram to look at the cardiac output. Sometimes I request a CT scan to see if there are calcium deposits in the coronary arteries.”
“I always prescribe a nutritional plan consisting of organic food that also eliminates dairy and processed foods. Based on test results and the patient’s lifestyle factors, I prescribe nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine and appropriate lifestyle modifications. Patients who follow my treatment protocol have had great success. Their high blood pressure is lower, their high cholesterol is lower, their angina goes away, their atherosclerosis is reversed, and within a year, most of them are off all prescription medications,”
Naturopathic Medicine is a natural medicine model that emphasizes the identification and treatment of the root cause of disease in order to restore health. Conventional and alternative diagnostic testing is used to evaluate the root cause of disease symptoms and then diet and lifestyle modifications are prescribed along with appropriate supplements, botanical medicine, homeopathic remedies and other natural therapies to enable healing of the affected areas of the body.
Mr. Cook says, “Natural living works because the body will heal itself when given the right conditions. When people take full responsibility for their food choices and lifestyle choices that affect overall health and also decide to work with a qualified natural medicine professional such as a Naturopathic Doctor, symptoms of heart disease will completely disappear.” To watch the video of Dr. Cage share how he successfully diagnoses and treats heart disease, visit http://www.thenaturalguide.com/
