women-heart-diseaseWomen experience a cardiovascular health gap that makes a difference between life and death.

Heart disease is the one number killer of women in the US.  More women than men die of heart disease each year. 

Do you know what to look for?

Naturopathic physicians listen carefully to their female patients.  We take note of the atypical symptoms.

Indigestion, headache, "just not feeling well", fatigue, feelings of dread, and flu like symptoms can be hallmark signs of a cardiovascular event in women. 

Doctors often fail to recognize heart disease in women which delays lifesaving treatment. Men more often than not receive advanced care and better treatment. 

How can we close the gender gap for women?

At Second Nature we believe in educating and empowering our female patients.  We offer full

cardiovascular baseline labs and we partner with the best cardiologists in the Tri-State area.

We talk about your family history, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, diabetes, obesity. We measure your BMI and % body fat.  Together we create your individualized treatment plan.

Call us and schedule your cardiovascular consult.  Don't be a gender gap statistic.  Call to Get Started Today!
