Save $50 during the American Heart Month (until February 28th, 2014)
This month we're introducing Cardio – Acupuncture to the Quad Cities in coordination with the observance of the American Heart Month. The goal of this program is to lower the risk of heart disease, by lowering both cholesterol and blood pressure, and promoting a heart healthy lifestyle.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, about 600,000 Americans die from heart disease every year, that’s 1 in every 4 individuals. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the most common type of heart disease is coronary heart disease, which claims 385,000 lives annually. Heart attacks kill 715,000 men & women, most of which are first time sufferers, but for about 190,000 of these individuals, they’ve already experienced a heart attack. Here in the Quad Cities the prevalence of heart disease is 3% higher than the U.S. average, but the risk is actually greater when you take into consideration the high prevalence rates of diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, all of which are higher than the national average; and tend to manifest in combinations.
The Cardio – Acupuncture Program combines Eastern and Western medicine to promote a heart healthy lifestyle, which leads to lowered blood pressure readings, and lower cholesterol. Each treatment is individualized and designed around each patient’s case, and underlying conditions. This means that the treatment encompasses much more than sticking a few needles in the patient, it’s comprised of a nutritional consultation, exercise recommendations, and whole food supplemental care, as needed; with the end goal of being healthy and as drug – free as possible.
You only get one body and one life, use them wisely and don’t abuse them.
In addition, the patient should have a copy of recent lab work (no less than 60 days old), if not we can order that for them. This is so we can have a baseline reading for the cholesterol and triglycerides. It's also helpful if the patient has a cardio profile done, which includes more specific biomarkers.
