Emotional and physical stress can wreak havoc on all parts of the body and especially the heart. The state of your mind, body and spirit greatly influences cardiac health and quality of life. Nurturing the whole body and the whole person can lead to improved outcomes for a wide array of heart conditions, from atrial fibrillation to coronary artery disease.
The NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute has long provided integrated, multidisciplinary services to provide the best of heart care. Close collaborations with specialists throughout NorthShore allow our cardiovascular experts to tap both conventional and alternative healing strategies to optimize the personalized care we deliver.
Through an innovative partnership with NorthShore’s Integrative Medicine Program, we now offer a new Integrative Medicine for Cardiac Patients Program. Specializing in cardiac health, the Integrative Medicine team of physicians and practitioners work closely with your cardiologist or primary care physician to develop a customized care plan. The program features natural, evidenced based techniques to help reduce stress and promote wellness and well-being. We offer a broad range of services, from yoga classes and acupuncture to meditation instruction and Shiatsu massage.
