Are We A Good Fit?

At Heart Health, our #1 priority is to help you finally overcome your chronic wellness issues.

Unlike most conventional medicine practitioners, we look at lifestyle and contributing factors that may have caused your symptoms. Through advanced lab testing, we discover what is causing the imbalances that have kept you stuck in a chronic illness cycle so you can finally break free.

We partner with each client to achieve these steps, starting with the REVIEW Phase:

Our Unique Approach

This framework is a critical part of our Heart Health Prevention & Wellness Roadmap –  a unique approach to help motivated adults with pre/diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol improve their cardiometabolic risk factors without toxic and expensive drugs so they can enjoy a well-balanced, productive life looking and feeling their best… even if previous approaches have failed.

During the intake, we’ll review your past medical history and any previous lab tests so we can assess for anything your doctor might have missed.

Next, we'll determine the need for additional lab tests to better understand your cardiovascular risk factors. This typically goes beyond the cardiometabolic lab panel run by your PCP, and might include detailed lipid profile, inflammatory markers as well genetic testing.

After that, we determine the need for advanced cardiac diagnostics – like echo, CT calcium score, and CIMT – short for carotid intima-media thickness test. Sometimes, we might even add wearable devices to better track your progress.

Next, in the REBOOT phase, we focus on your mindset for success and sleep & stress management – because these foundational elements are critical to have in place before we move into the next phase.

Many of my clients lead a high-stress life that puts them at serious risk for cardiac events, so as part of my integrative cardiology approach, we seek to establish a new health identity needed for sustainable habits. We will explore the Causal Coaching Model which teaches us that our thoughts control our feelings which lead to our actions and our results. For example, if you think of yourself as “unhealthy” you feel sad and unmotivated which may cause you to sit on the couch and eat cookies which results in you being unhealthy. We can learn to recognize these thoughts and change them, leading to better results. 

In the next step, we will typically start by tweaking your nutrition & diet so we can dial down chronic inflammation and repair any nutritional deficiencies that might be responsible for some of your symptoms. As an integrative cardiologist, I’ll also look at your oral health, since that is closely linked to cardiovascular health.

The last step in this REBOOT phase is we seek to reboot your nervous system and dial down stress triggers that drive inflammation.  Specifically, we’ll strengthen parasympathetic tone to help you shift from “flight or flight” to “rest and digest” mode – while dialing down inflammatory signals and enhancing mood and focus. We also seek to curate a sensible self-care routine and talk through your coping mechanisms for stress.

To kick off the final REBALANCE phase, we will typically start by optimizing your circadian rhythm, one of the most powerful predictors of cardiometabolic health. Beyond upgrading your sleep hygiene, we also review whether a sleep study is needed for further evaluation.

Next, we integrate new ways to move – something that doesn’t even feel like exercising, but helps you meet physical activity goals and rebuilds sustainable habits. Because, the science is crystal clear on this: physical activity is a key driver of cardiovascular health, especially as you’re in your 50s and 60s.

In the final step of our roadmap, we focus on longevity and healthy aging. As part of my integrative cardiology approach, we’ll discuss your specific determinants of healthy aging while reducing the toxic burden from tobacco, alcohol, heavy metals, allergens, and toxins that promote premature aging.
