Integrative cardiology is an exciting new field of cardiology that combines conventional and expanded healing options to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease. Conventional cardiology focuses on the treatment of acute illness such as heart attacks and heart failure. Integrative cardiology works to prevent heart disease long before it appears by addressing the root causes, including genetics, lifestyle, emotional stress or risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol.

Integrative cardiology also focuses on healing heart disease. It incorporates conventional evidence-based medicine with lifestyle, nutrition, mind-body medicine and an understanding of spirituality to develop an individual prescription for health.
