Sometimes referred to as Syndrome X, metabolic syndrome is a mix of conditions that brings up your risk of developing diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. If you are someone who tries to find more natural solutions to treat health conditions rather than using invasive procedures or heavy medications, you can work with a professional naturopath to learn more about metabolic syndrome treatment in Chula Vista.
Metabolic syndrome is usually diagnosed if you present with at least three or more of the following conditions:
- High blood pressure
- High triglycerides
- High blood glucose levels while fasting
- Obesity in the midsection
- Good cholesterol levels that are too low
The wonderful news is that you do have natural options for tweaking your lifestyle to help with this condition. For many people, simple changes will make all the difference in the world. However, there are some patients who will benefit more from a combination of traditional medicine and naturopathic therapies.
Some of the options that Dr. Dubroff at Holistic Solutions may talk with you about include:
- Weight loss
- Working on regulating your blood glucose levels
- Keeping your blood pressure and cholesterol under control
These things can be achieved by making notable changes to your diet while also moving and exercising more. You can also boost your levels of antioxidant intake and add supplements to your diet such as grape seed extract, and cutting out fatty, salty, or sugary foods.
You should never feel as though you have to rely on conventional medicine alone to help you with metabolic syndrome treatment. Dr. Dubroff at Holistic Solutions can have you come in for an initial consultation to go over your medical history to get you on a path for treatment!
