For our cardiology patients who prefer a more conventional medicine approach, standard cardiovascular and electrophysiology evaluation and treatment remain available.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world.
What is Integrative Cardiology?
Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
Integrative Cardiology applies the tenets of integrative medicine to the standards of conventional cardiovascular disease medicine to tailor the most appropriate treatments for a person’s individual health benefits and disease risks.
Why Integrative Cardiology?
Conventional medicine is good at putting patients in a box and labeling a set of signs and symptoms with a diagnosis which can be treated with a series of drugs. But do you want to actually prevent your first heart attack? Have you been labeled with hypertension or hyperlipidemia but have never been told why? Are you seeking a new approach to heart health?
Dr. Bargas will get to the root cause of these processes and work with you to reverse them She has stepped outside the comfort zone of conventional medicine. She can prescribe medications when indicated but this is not her default plan. Being integrative means spending extra time discussing how all pillars of wellness contribute to risk and illness. In a nutshell, being integrative means treating people, not disease.
