...a functional medicine approach to chronic disease prevention and management
This program is needed for people who are serious about prevention of a heart attack or stroke. The current guidelines for prevention of cardiovascular disease is commonly limited to management of cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Calculation of a person's risk is made by using the Framingham Risk Score. The shortcomings of this risk scoring have been studied for years, so how does a person really know their risk of having a heart attack or stroke? This is where our program comes to the forefront of identifying person's at high risk. With identification of plaque in the artery, the mere presence of plaque elevates the risk to high risk. Call for more details.
One of the leading causes of death is cardiovascular disease of which heart attack and stroke still dominate. The real question that still confuses millions of people today is, "Why is there so much controversy when it comes to prevention of heart attack and strokes"?
While still true today, the real cause of heart attack and strokes has never been more clearly laid out in the medical literature.
The simplified version is that LDL cholesterol is not the villain and there are many contributing factors that need to be managed.
The Program at Progressive Health Clinic has been used on thousands of people to identify high risk patients and subsequently help these people to avoid the mostly preventable heart attack or stroke.
We are committed to help yourself to better health.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) Covid 19 severity is related to the age of a person and pre existing health conditions such as Cardiovascular Disease.
Our medical system is being pushed to the limits to provide basic services to patients in need. The underlying premise of the medical system is reactive and not a proactive system. Many well intentioned members of our medical system do their very best to help the patient but with how the tentacles of the pharmaceutical industry extend into all areas of this system, there is little focus on prevention. One well researched treatment option for menopause, peri-menopause, hormonal imbalance, aging, and disease prevention is bio-identical hormone replacement. The research that is available to support the concept of bio-identical hormones for replacement is being accepted more and more because the overwhelming amount of evidence supporting it's use can't be ignored. Main stream medicine still does not support it's use though. Another example of using functional medicine can be applied to the societal problem of obesity. Our clinic adopts a functional medicine approach in our weight loss program because weight loss isn't just about portion control, calories and carbohydrates. Our clinic is proud to offer comprehensive approaches to detecting and halting the progression of hardening of the arteries which leads to stroke or heart attack. We offer a combination of testing and risk management that is not commonly offered at other clinics. We are proud to offer an affordable comprehensive wellness program that focuses on screening for pre-diabetes, coronary artery disease, heart disease risk factors, and Alzheimer's disease risk factors.
