Did you know:
- Seventy million people in the USA have heart disease?
- Heart disease is the chief cause of death among American women of all ages?
- Deaths from cancer in the USA are half as common as death from cardiovascular disease?
- You are at a much greater risk of heart disease if you have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, a weight problem, smoke, have diabetes or a family history of heart disease?
Many Tampa Bay residents ask us, “What is a heart attack?” Simply, a heart attack is damage to the heart muscle due to loss of blood supply, usually caused by a complete blockage of an artery that supplies blood to the heart muscle.
How we treat Cardiovascular Disease at LifeWorks
We have programs at our Clearwater clinic for dealing with nearly every one of the eight major causes of heart disease. One you may not be familiar with is Chelation Therapy.
Used for over 30 years to treat degenerative diseases such as high cholesterol, poor circulation, and heart disease, Chelation Therapy is administered via an intravenous infusion of a special protein called EDTA. This protein is scientifically proven to remove heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury, and others from the body.
Some researchers believe that as Chelation Therapy removes toxic heavy metals from the body, oxidative stress diminishes and cholesterol levels lower, allowing blood to flow more freely through your arteries. In short, removing heavy metals from your body improves your circulation, heart, brain and immune functions.
If you think you are at risk of Cardiovascular Disease, we can help you at our Clearwater clinic. For an appointment,call the New Patient Scheduler at (727) 466-6789.
