Heart Health

Naturopathic physicians at Sonoran University practice a multi-faceted approach to cardiovascular health, assessing risk factors such as age, gender, genetics, lipid and cholesterol levels, and lifestyle. Your heart is an organ that’s about the size of your fist that is tasked daily with pumping nearly 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the body, delivering oxygen, immune cells, and nutrients, while also removing metabolic wastes and carbon dioxide. Damage to the heart or its valves can reduce the heart’s pumping power, forcing it to work harder just to satisfy your body’s demand for blood, leading to organ and tissue injury throughout the body, as seen in advanced diabetes.

By combining naturopathic treatments with healthy lifestyle habits, your heart and blood vessels will nourish your cells more effectively and efficiently.  You’ll feel better, have more energy, and get back to being you again. The naturopathic physicians at the Medical Center are committed to providing you with the education and the tools to create a healthy life.
