Description

The triad of hypertension, dyslipidemia and dysglycemia is no stranger to health-care providers of any kind; this is the “bread and butter” of many primary care practices.  While diet and lifestyle factors certainly play a role (determinants of health), the adverse effects inherent in many of our most prescribed pharmaceutical agents are, in fact, inducing secondary disease states in the population, “necessitating” yet another drug…, which can predispose the patient to yet another disease diagnosis.  What a destructive cycle!  Here’s how to recognize the major culprits and reverse the disease process.  NOTE:  this course is NOT designed to encourage chronic drug maintenance; rather, the focus is treating the cause, treating the whole person, doing no harm, and re-establishing health in the patient while preventing future disease.  Docere!

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the main players in the cardiovascular array of pharmaceutical agents that cause disease as an adverse event (side effect)
  • Recognize the importance of utilizing all aspects of the Naturopathic Principles and the Therapeutic Order to reestablish health and balance
  • Appreciate the use of patients’ language around health issues
  • Identify when the true etiology of disease is not based in the physical plane, but requires diligent (and gentle) pursuit within the mental, emotional, and/or spiritual planes
  • Re-ground themselves in their naturopathic roots.  (Just in case some of you have gotten busy or caught up in conventional standards of care and have possibly overlooked the obvious.  No judgement here—it happens.)
