Cardiovascular Treatments

At the Heartful Wellness Centre we work hard to determine the root cause of your cardiovascular issues.  Treatments are aimed at correcting underlying causative factors, healing arteries and managing symptoms.  Diets and supplements will be prescribed and various other treatments will be offered if appropriate.

We offer several intravenous therapies which support cardiovascular function including chelation therapy and plaquex.  Other intravenous therapies may be helpful depending on the underlying cause of the cardiovascular disease.

We offer a variety of supplements that provide superior cardiovascular support and improve vascular function and treat risk factors.  In particular we work at increasing nitric oxide in the body.   From a cardiovascular perspective, nitric oxide improves endothelial function, increases artery elasticity, increases vessel growth, increases blood flow, increases oxygen delivery and increases limb function.

L-arginine is a vital amino acid that plays a role in a number of physiological functions in the body but is best known for its cardiovascular benefits.  In the body, l-arginine is converted to nitric oxide (NO), which causes relaxation of blood vessels and regulates blood vessel tone and flexibility.  This reduces stress on the heart, improves circulation and lowers blood pressure. In addition, l-arginine reduces blood viscosity and lipid peroxidation. We offer supplements that increase nitric oxide and many include the amino acid  l-arginine.

Diet can also be a critical component to the healing process.  A diet specific to the client’s needs/issues will be prescribed.  Exercise and stress management approaches may also be recommended depending on the person’s history.
