If you’ve never been on the hunt for a naturopathic cardiology expert before, you may not be sure of the signs to look for that you might need one. Here are a few things to look out for to help you decide whether you could benefit from a natural approach to cardiology:
- Do you have a family history of heart attacks or sudden heart failure before age 60? If so, you should see a cardiologist. You can get screened for many of the following risk factors that tend to be genetic, including low HDL cholesterol high Lp(a) cholesterol, homocysteine, fibrinogen, and serum ferritin.
- Are you a man older than 40 or woman older than 45 planning on engaging in a new exercise regimen? A cardiologist can give you a stress test to rule out potential heart issues.
- If you have heart issues like chest pain, syncope, or shortness of breath with any physical exertion, go to a cardiologist as soon as possible to diagnose the problem.
