Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X is combination of several factors that increase your risk for diabetes, stroke and heart disease. You are in jeopardy if you meet the 5 standards that cover high blood sugar, low HDL cholesterol, a large waist, high triglycerides and high blood pressure. Metabolic syndrome is best treated with a systematic approach from a variety of sources. The primary goals are to reduce the risk of coronary artery or heart disease and to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, if not already present. While medications are available as a treatment option, there are a number of naturopathic remedies that may significantly reduce the risk factors for this disease and success can be found with metabolic syndrome treatment in Arlington.
Crucial for treating this multi-faceted health issue are lifestyle changes that benefit the heart. Controlling high blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels will all provide excellent results. This can be attained with a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, losing weight, exercise, eliminating smoking and reducing stress. In addition, there are other proven methods for effective treatment that include acupuncture, vitamin, herbal and mineral supplementation and meditation and yoga.
Prior to beginning a program of treatment for metabolic syndrome, a naturopathic practitioner will complete a thorough health evaluation to determine your specific risk factors and the best way to facilitate management of the disease.
