Heart Disease

There are few bodily organs as essential as your heart for a long and vital life. And yet cardiovascular disease is responsible for one of every 2.6 deaths in the U.S. And with obesity and inactivity on the rise, cardiovascular disease threatens to become even more prevalent.

The good news is that supplements, herbs, dietary measures and exercise can help prevent or correct cardiovascular disease. The Bastyr Center for Natural Health has a program specifically designed to treat and prevent heart disease. For more details, read an article featured featured in our Healthy & Wise newsletter about it.

Read about other natural ways to reduce your risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes and live a longer, healthier life – whether heart disease runs in your family or not.
