High blood pressure, high cholesterol, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, and other cardiovascular conditions.
You are not alone…
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than one quarter of all deaths. The American Heart Association reports that some 80 million Americans have one or more forms of cardiovascular disease.
Conventional medicine has its place…
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms for many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
You do have options…
Many people do not realize there are options in addition to conventional medicine that will actually make them better. By addressing the underlying causes of cardiovascular disease, patients experience reductions in symptoms, improvements in overall health, and reduced dependence on medications.
There is hope…

What do you do for patients with cardiovascular disease?
Cardiovascular disease is generally characterized by clogged arteries that restrict blood flow. Other forms of heart disease include dysfunctional heart beats (arrhythmias) and disease of the heart itself (cardiomyopathies). There are many factors that contribute to clogged arteries and improper heart function, including diet, exercise, stress, and genetics.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, we address these factors using classical homeopathy, customized diets, nutritional supplements, exercise coaching, and midfulness-based stress reduction.
Each patient’s plan is individualized – we have never found a “one size fits all” approach to be useful for the majority of people. We spend two to three hours with an adult patient on the first visit to make sure we understand very thoroughly what is going on in your body. We also spend time in follow up visits to make sure that healing is progressing as well as possible.
Homeopathy is part of the name of our practice because we believe so strongly in its power to cure disease. Homeopathic care involves the thorough evaluation of each patient’s exact symptoms. A single remedy is chosen that matches the subtleties of each case of disease. The remedy given restores balance to the many systems of the body that keep us well. [Read more about homeopathy.]
Diet may be one of the most confusing contributors to heart disease. Many theories have come, and some have gone, regarding the effect of foods on cardiovascular health. There are also aspects of a heart-healthy diet that have stood the test of time. We customize diet advice based on each patient’s symptoms, sensitivities, lifestyle, and response to previous treatments. We stay current with the medical literature to bring you the best advice possible.
Depending on your exact condition, we may recommend one or more nutritional supplements. These will help to keep your arteries open, your cholesterol at healthy levels, and your heart functioning properly. We only use supplements that have strong support in the medical literature.
Use it or lose it! Regular appropriate exercise makes your heart healthier and improves your whole body’s ability to utilize oxygen. Without exercise, our bodies break down more quickly as we age. At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, we believe in simple, effective, sustainable exercise routines. If your program is enjoyable and fits into your lifestyle, you will sustain it over a long period of time. Only then will you realize the full benefits of exercise.
Mindfulness-based stress reduction:
Research supports the use of mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques in reducing many risk factors for heart disease. High blood pressure and cholesterol are significantly reduced by regular MBSR practice. MBSR involves simple exercises such as concentrating on one’s breathing to train the brain to remain calm during stress.
What about my medications?
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms in many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, our programs improve your health on a fundamental level. Healthy bodies don’t need medications. Our goal is always to reduce or eliminate the need for medications, and we are generally successful.

Cardiovascular disease typically requires four to eight visits to have a substantial and sustainable impact. These visits may be weekly or bi-weekly at first, becoming less frequent as your health improves. Follow up visits will last 45 minutes to one hour, as they involve coaching and counseling as well as homeopathy.
Supplements may be required at an additional cost. We try to keep supplements to a minimum, but our patients may spend $25 or more per month on supplements.
Ongoing follow up care may be required to maintain results.
