Vitamins Herbal & Natural - A Cardiologists Perspective

Pentucket Medical cardiologists Seth Bilazarian and Sunny Srivastava discuss vitamins and dietary supplements as alternative, complimentary and natural therapies.

Patients often think doctors are "against" the use of vitamin or herbal therapies.  I try to explain on our community program "Matters of the Heart"  the doctors viewpoint on Vitamin supplements - cautions and recommendations.  I speak about Vitamin D deficiency and its treatment.

Because its a VItamin or because it says its natural doesn't mean its good.

The Shocking Amount Seniors Spent On Health Care | Heart diseases and Heart Conditions | Scoop.it
After crunching the numbers, the report found that during that time period, more than 75 percent of Medicare-eligible households spent at least $10,000 out of pocket on health care. Spending for all participants during those last five years averaged $38,688, and for the remaining 25 percent the average expense was even greater: they spent a whopping $101,791 out of pocket. A quarter of participants also spent "more than their total household assets on healthcare," according to the report.

Peripheral Artery Disease - Vascular Disease Foundation

Peripheral Artery Disease - Vascular Disease Foundation | Heart diseases and Heart Conditions | Scoop.it

PAD is short for Peripheral Artery Disease. People have PAD when the arteries in their legs become narrowed or clogged with fatty deposits, or plaque. The buildup of plaque causes the arteries to harden and narrow, which is called atherosclerosis. When leg arteries are hardened and clogged, blood flow to the legs and feet is reduced. Some people call this poor circulation.

With one side of the poster designed to educate patients and another to inform doctors, this two-sided American Heart Association poster seeks to bridge the AFib knowledge gap.
