Naturopathy is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. At Seton Integrative Health Clinic, our Calgary naturopathic doctor strongly believes in healing the body and preventing illness using nature’s own solutions. SIHC believes in taking a natural approach to getting better and staying strong. This clinic is headed by Dr. Aliya Kabani, who uses professional complementary medicine combined with the practical use of art and science of naturopathic medicine in Calgary to help you and your family on your healing journey. She is a very committed and compassionate human being and an empathetic and supportive doctor who takes the time to assess and diagnose an individual holistically. Dr. Aliya strives to empower her patients to take charge of their health and educate them that the healthiest body is one that works on preventing disease and is in harmony physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Heart health and the prevention of cardiac disease are emphasized by our Calgary Naturopathic doctor. Our care includes creating a heart healthy nutritional regime and an exercise program to strengthen your heart. We are particularly interested in the interaction between homocysteine and lipoprotein (a) in heart health. Lipoprotein (a) and homocysteine are two important independent risk factors for coronary artery disease (CAD). Each may play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis and/or thrombosis. At Seton Integrative Health Clinic, blood is drawn to analyze these factors. Results have shown that elevated levels of both homocysteine and lipoprotein (a) increase the chances of cardiac disease and are more likely to do so in the presence of other risk factors.
With the results of the blood test, the Calgary Naturopathic doctor gets a clearer picture of your cardiac health status and can use these results to create a health program unique to an individual’s needs. Our naturopathic medicine clinic also offers a number of naturopathic and holistic family health services. Our various programs and solutions will help you in achieving a healthy pregnancy, getting the best postnatal care, and help with overcoming infertility. Some of our services include acupuncture, massage, and a number of other effective naturopathic and holistic therapies. If you are looking for a family practice dedicated to finding natural solutions for cardiac health and for getting and staying healthy, give Dr. Aliya a call today.
