One of the most important health decisions is choosing a cardiologist. A decision that should not be taken lightly, a patient should look for an experienced, patient caregiver, who is willing to explain how they can better their health. Whether a patient is looking for preventative medicine or has already suffered heart problems, this choice is equally important. Here at Holistic Solutions we believe that ample time should be given to each patient in a relaxed, comfortable setting. Our natural methods and remedies have long been proven effective in all fields and areas of medicine, including cardiology in La Mesa.
It is good to keep in mind that a holistic or naturopathic physician is still a licensed medical doctor. He or she has simply decided to practice in naturopathy, like an oncologist has decided to specialize in oncology. Our resident doctor, Dr. Dubroff, is well-versed and licensed in all other areas of medicine, including Alzheimer’s, women’s health, and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
One of the first things that the doctor will prescribe is a change in diet, before any other treatments are attempted. Those at risk for heart problems should avoid foods that are high in cholesterol and salt especially, but also limit sugar and fat intake. Instead, a healthy diet full of whole grains, leafy greens, fruits, low fat milk, and lean meats should be eaten. Exercise should also become part of a person’s daily routine. Alcohol should be limited, and cigarettes completely cut out altogether. The doctor can also help with smoking cessation.
