Naturopathy Reduces Cardiovascular Risk Factors

submitted by: admin on 10/12/2013


According to a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal in April of 2013, naturopathic care enhanced conventional care from MDs by showing a 17% reduction in prevalence of the metabolic syndrome over a one year period.

Primary healthcare supposedly provides in-depth lifestyle counselling, however, why then does ND care lower the risk for metabolic syndrome in those people getting conventional health care? MDs are simply not trained anywhere near as well as NDs when it comes to lifestyle management that includes diet, exercise, sleep, weight control, use of supplements such as omega 3 fatty acids, coenzyme Q10, l-carnitine, and much more, so we should not expect they will know about lifestyle medicine.

It is time for integrative medicine to be brought into clinical practice...we deserve nothing less!
