As a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine Dr. Laura Belus, ND, believes that health is attainable at any age. As a young adult she made the connection between the foods we eat and how we feel. This was a powerful tool in reversing her long history of migraines and skin concerns.
In recent years she has developed a special interest in cardiovascular health and the effects of stress on the autonomic nervous system (high blood pressure, anxiety, heart disease). Following the likes of Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Mark Hyman she has extensively studied the profound positive effects of lifestyle medicine on many chronic diseases. She currently is in collaboration with Dr. Howard Schwartz, MD, FACC, New York City integrative cardiologist to educate patients with the most effective treatments that can prevent and reverse many of their heart health concerns.
The philosophy is by rebuilding the foundations of health: diet, sleep, exercise and lifestyle, one can restore the body to a place of balance and experience a greater vitality, regardless of age.
