Preventive Cardiology

What is preventive cardiology?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, cardiovascular (heart and artery) disease is the leading cause of early death in men and women all over the world. Heart disease has many causes and risk factors.

The skilled team at the Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity works diligently to find the root cause of your heart and/or artery disease so they can stop and reverse it before it progresses.

Using the most advanced imaging and diagnostic technology available, Dr. Kahn evaluates your risk factors and customizes a plan to help you avoid or beat heart disease. It’s his chief goal to teach you that heart attacks can be prevented.

What causes heart disease?

The vast majority of all heart attacks are directly linked to one or more of these factors:

  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet
  • High stress
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Lack of exercise
  • Diabetes

Inadequate sleep affects your overall well-being and your heart health. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society, you should aim for seven or more hours of quality sleep every night.

What tests help detect heart disease?

The Kahn Center offers premiere testing of stress balance, nutrition, and vascular conditions. Tests include:

The Ultimate Heart Check Up

This is the Kahn Center’s most comprehensive, detailed heart and whole health exam.

Carotid Intimal Medial Thickness (CIMT) ultrasound

This is a neck ultrasound used to evaluate the health of the arteries that transport blood to your brain.

Endothelial Function Artery Health (EndoPAT) assessment

This test evaluates the health of the endothelial cells that make up the nearly 100,000 miles of arteries in the adult body.

Your testing can also include advanced lab work with the Cleveland Heart Labs and Spectracell.

How is heart disease treated?

As a leading holistic cardiologist, Dr. Kahn believes and teaches that plant-based nutrition is the best preventive medicine. He assesses and monitors the plaque in your arteries with a CIMT ultrasound.

He then treats thickening or clogged arteries with lifestyle changes that include sleep improvements, sauna therapy, regular exercise, nutrition advice and support, stress management, vitamins, and supplements.
