CARDIOLOGY - UPDATES FOR THE INTEGRATIVE PRACTITIONER
All of us in practice have a good base to understand our cardio patients care, but can always update and take our clinical interventions to the next level.
SPECIFIC AREAS TO BE COVERED:
- We start with HOW THE SYSTEM FAILS (how the heart becomes dysfunctional), UNDERSTANDING DRUGS USED and important detail on "GENDER DIFFERENCES in cardiovascular disease".
- Then they will offer FOUR specific sections including case studies, updating non-drug options in HYPERTENSION, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, HEART FAILURE, and DYSRHYTHMIAS.
- Interventions including diet, nutrient, lifestyle and botanical approaches will be highlighted.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: What you need to know to implement everything in your office.
In this one-day online webinar, three experienced physicians will share their insights into this therapy.

Stephen Parcell N.D.
After receiving his Doctor of naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in 2002 Dr. Steve Parcell founded NatureMed Integrative Medicine in 2005. After completing a 2-year self-designed residency with a medical doctor in 2004 Dr. Parcell practiced general naturopathic medicine initially. He then moved into men's health and cardiovascular medicine about 15 years ago. He gained a passion for all things cardiovascular when he learned that it was possible to reverse arterial disease. He became fascinated with objective data such as lipoprotein subclasses, arterial inflammation markers, echocardiograms, carotid ultrasounds, and calcium scoring to assess and stratify risk in his patients. Always an advocate for the importance of exercise he has become more convinced than ever about the role of diet plays in the initiation and progression of arterial disease. He is adamant that naturopathic doctors are in the best possible position for primary prevention and follow through. He believes positive patient outcomes are the ultimate goal regardless of treatment approach and that sometimes an integrated team approach is the way to achieve that.
