The keys to great cardiovascular health are nutrition, exercise and lifestyle factors such as not smoking, good sleep, stress management, god nutrition and hydration and more.  We provide personalized treatment plans for every individual, treating the person, not the condition!

Angina (Chest Pain)

Angina may be caused by reduced blood flow to your heart muscle. Your blood carries oxygen, which your heart muscle  needs to survive. When your heart muscle isn't getting enough oxygen, it causes a condition called ischemia. The most common cause of reduced blood flow to your heart muscle is coronary artery disease. It is often described as squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightness or pain in the chest. Some people with angina symptoms describe angina as feeling like a heavy weight has been placed on their chest. Although angina is relatively common, it can still be hard to distinguish from other types of chest pain, such as the pain or discomfort of indigestion. If you have unexplained chest pain, seek medical attention right away.

Angina symptoms include: chest pain or discomfort, possibly described as pressure, squeezing, burning or fullness, pain in arms, neck, jaw, shoulder or back accompanying chest pain, nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating, and dizziness.

Many conventional medications for angina cause drug reactions with other medications the patient is taking for other conditions. Whereas, acupuncture therapy does not pose such an interference with a patient's medications. A combination of conventional drug therapy and acupuncture could considerably decrease the frequency and the required dosage of drug taking, thereby decreasing the unpleasant “side-effects” of the conventional medicine. Acupuncture can also address and eliminate said side-effects.


Hypertension is defined as an abnormally high blood pressure.  It is often accompanied by a state of great psychological stress.  It is very important to monitor and effectively manage high blood pressure since it is a risk factor associated with myocardial infarctions (heart attacks) and stroke. Conventional medicine treats it with pills. Some people refuse to take antihypertensive drugs because of their side effects. The holistic approach may include nutrition, supplements, herbal medicine, and stress reduction techniques.


Acupuncture can be utilized as a tool to aid weight loss.  Together with a nutritious meal plan and healthy lifestyle, it can help people to reach their ideal weight faster by regulating internal organs, boosting metabolism, aiding digestion and elimination, reducing water retention and decreasing appetite.  Weight loss with a personal trainer is slow with most people losing about 1-2 pounds per week.  We have a natural, safe and effective rapid weight loss program that can get you to your health and fitness goals in a fraction of the time and cost.  There is no hunger, no bars, no shakes and no gimmicks, just delicious and nutritious meals. 

Our weight loss patients have lowered their cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure thus substantially decreasing their cardiovascular risk!

In summary, nutrition and lifestyle factors may help to decrease the risk of heart conditions, despite a genetic predisposition.  Having good habits such as a nutritious diet, regular exercise, stress reduction practices and good sleep may decrease the risk of a cardiovascular event or diagnosis.  We can help you in maintaining optimal weight and lowering elevated blood pressure.  Give us a call to schedule a FREE 15 minute phone consultation.
