Why would you want to have your heart assessed from the Heart Fit Clinic? Cardiology investigations from your local cardiologist are designed to determine if you are high risk. If you are not high risk you will get dismissed. What happens if you are on the path of heart disease or on the verge of another heart problem?
Our cardiac assessments and screenings are designed to provide you with a comprehensive detailed portfolio of your heart health. This is something that is not readily available at your doctor’s office or even cardiologist office.
WHAT ARE OUR CARDIAC ASSESSMENTS AND SCREENINGS?
Your arteries are not a pipe – they are a muscle, so we focus on some vital tests to determine your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Over 50% of people who have cardiovascular disease have normal cholesterol.
The majority of heart attacks and strokes occur with blockages that are less than 50% (which can go undetected).
Because your arteries are a muscle, the first tests that we focus on are:
P.U.L.S. CARDIAC TEST :
Do You Have Unstable Plaques?:
The majority of heart attacks and strokes occur with blockages that are less than 50%. Many advanced cardiology tests will miss this or even ignore these dangerous blockages. Now you can determine your FIVE year risk of a heart attack or stroke.
We have artery screening tests where our software is able to determine –
How Old is Your Heart. This is a safe, painless test to see where your artery function is.
Endothelial Function Assessment:
How Well Do Your Arteries Function?:
This tests the artery health and function. Again, your arteries are NOT a pipe; they are a muscle. How reactive are your arteries? They should be like a garden hose that you just bought from your local hardware store, not something that has been left out all winter long.

MICRONUTRIENT DEFFICIENCIES :
How Defficient Are You?
This test measures the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies versus serum testing. <<CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE>>
CLINICAL FITNESS ASSESSMENT
Exercise Safely & Effectively?
Exercise is the best medicine. We all hear about someone having a heart attack while exercising (snow shoveling, golfing or playing hockey). We also perform clinical fitness assessments to determine a safe and effective level of exercise. We monitor your ECG, blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, and oxygen saturation during an exercise test. From here we prescribe a safe and effective level of exercise for you.
Once we know your risk we get to the root of the problem to help you prevent and reverse heart disease. We are an evidence-based practice focusing on traditional and new therapies to help you beat heart disease. We know that medications are used to mask a bigger problem. We want to help you tackle this bigger problem.
