What if you had normal cholesterol, normal blood pressure, felt great…and still had a heart attack? Sound impossible? In fact, Dr. Shiva Lalezar, a noted Los Angeles holistic doctor, sees it happen all the time. Blood pressure measurement and blood cholesterol levels may not be, in and of themselves, sufficiently accurate in predicting heart disease. That’s why at the Health & Vitality Center, the Los Angeles wellness clinic founded by Dr. Lalezar, we use cardiac risk markers as part of our comprehensive battery of diagnostic tests.
What are cardiac risk markers?
Cardiac risk markers may be certain substances that can be measured in the blood. Clinical studies have shown that the presence of these markers puts you at a statistically higher risk for heart disease.
Based on the results of this diagnostic test, we may recommend the following treatments:
- Custom Diet and Exercise Plans/Lifestyle Modification
- IV Vitamin Therapy
- Nutritional Supplements
- CaEDTA Chelation Therapy
