Heart Disease

Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease, encompasses a range of conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels, ultimately impairing the heart’s ability to function efficiently. Heart disease can also include conditions like heart failure, arrhythmias, and heart valve disorders. It is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, emphasizing the importance of preventive measures such as a heart-healthy lifestyle, regular medical check-ups, and management of risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol, and smoking to reduce the risk of heart disease and its complications.

Live a Wholesome Life with Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, focusing on the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Integrative medicine seeks to provide personalized and comprehensive care, incorporating evidence-based treatments alongside practices such as acupuncture, nutrition counselling, mindfulness, and other complementary therapies to promote healing and overall wellness.
