Cardiovascular Health

Our Naturopathic Physicians provide primary health care services to individuals with cardiovascular health concerns, one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Dr. Jasmine Wong, ND has a special interest in this area, stemming from her undergraduate degree in cardiac rehab and kinesiology to her ongoing continuing education on the most advanced testing, evaluation and treatment of various heart related concerns. Although CVD appears to have a strong genetic component, early detection and reduction of risk factors can slow down the progression and long term sequelae of illness.
