\When it comes time to choose a cardiologist, a patient should be well-informed about the doctor and their practice. One of the most important decisions that a patient can make, a cardiologist helps prevent heart disease for those at risk, and treats heart disease for those who are suffering from it. Here at Holistic Solutions, we use naturopathic medicine to live life more healthily, especially when other conventional medicines may have failed. We consider ourselves experts in the field of cardiology in La Jolla, and are ready to help every patient get back on the road of being heart-healthy.
It is important to note that naturopathy is a field of medicine, and naturopathic doctors are licensed, board-certified physicians. Naturopathic doctors simply have decided to be experts in their field. While naturopathy covers such a broad scope, they are able to practice other types of medicine as well. Our resident doctor, Dr. Dubroff, is well-versed in the area of women’s health, autism, Alzheimer’s, cardiology, and more.
One of the first things that the doctor will advise is a change in diet. Foods high in cholesterol and salt may be very damaging to those at risk for heart disease. Additionally, foods high in sugar and fat should also be avoided. Instead, eat a diet high in fiber, full of fruits, leafy greens, whole grains, lowfat dairy, and lean meats. Those at risk for heart disease should also be exercising regularly, should stop smoking, and should limit alcohol consumption.
