A comprehensive program to manage high blood pressure and high cholesterol without the use of drugs


MOLINE, IL.  February 14, 2014—This month Healing Lotus Acupuncture is introducing Cardio – Acupuncture to the Quad Cities in coordination with the observance of the American Heart Month.  The goal of this program is to lower the risk of heart disease, by lowering both cholesterol and blood pressure, and promoting a heart healthy lifestyle.

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, about 600,000 Americans die from heart disease every year; that’s 1 in every 4 individuals.  According to the Center for Disease Control, the most common type of heart disease is coronary heart disease, which claims 385,000 lives annually.  Heart attacks kill 715,000 men & women, most of which are first time sufferers, but for about 190,000 of these individuals, they’ve already experienced a heart attack.  Here in the Quad Cities the prevalence of heart disease is 3% higher than the U.S. average, and increases even more when other locally high prevalence rates are taken into consideration, such as:  diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, all of which tend to manifest in some combination, which complicates heart disease.


The Cardio – Acupuncture Program combines Eastern and Western medicine to promote a heart healthy lifestyle, which leads to lowered blood pressure readings, and lower cholesterol.  Each treatment is individualized and designed around each patient’s case, their underlying conditions, and current lab results.  This means that the treatment encompasses much more than sticking a few needles in the patient, it’s comprised of a nutritional consultation, exercise recommendations, and whole food supplemental care, as needed; with the end goal of being healthy and as drug – free as possible.
