Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention
We hear the word “prevention” a lot these days. Everyone seems to agree that it is the key to solving our nation’s health crisis, but no one seems to be doing much about it.
When it comes to our nations greatest killer and cause of disability – heart attacks and strokes, the health care system does a perfectly horrible job of disease prevention. Consider these facts:
- Heart attacks and strokes kill more Americans than all other diseases, accidents and homicides combined! For roughly half of these victims, their first symptom is sudden death.
(Source: American mortality in the U.S.,CDC 2007)
- Using current national guidelines for measurement of risk, 88% of heart attack victims would have been deemed “low to moderate risk” the day before their heart attack.
- 75% of all heart attack victims have “NORMAL” cholesterol.
- 86% of heart attacks occur in people who would pass a stress test.
Heart attack and stroke prevention may very well be the most tragically misunderstood topic in medicine today.
The fact is when it comes to preventing these lethal events, current standards of care can kill you. Even worse… the medical establishment knows it.
Heart attacks and strokes are preventable.
As a patient of this practice, you will have an entirely different experience. Using the latest imaging technologies, genetic testing and labs, we find the earliest stages of vascular disease… stabilize it… and begin the process of reversing it.
