Healthy Heart, Long Life
The heart has two basic systems of function—plumbing (heart valves, blood and vessels) and electrical (heart muscle, heartbeat rhythm and rate). The blood carries nutrients, oxygen, hormones, and immune cells. When this flow of blood is disrupted, a wide variety of problems show up.
If we have an imbalance of dietary nutrition, or take in too many toxins, these will also be carried through the body and cause illness. If we are not moving our bodies enough, the flow of blood can become stagnant and create another set of ailments. It’s not hard to imagine why the #1 cause of death worldwide is heart disease. Thankfully, naturopathic medicine has solutions – often simple ones – for all issues related to the heart.
Heart problems can look like other health conditions and go undiscovered. For example, heartburn, viral illness, hormone conditions, urinary problems, stress headache, and muscle strain can all actually be due to, or involve, a cardiovascular issue.
