Our Heart Disease Screening Program 

The Optimal heart disease screen program is tailored to your unique situation and may include one or more of the diagnostic tools described below.

Advanced Blood Panels

The standard heart disease workup offered by most doctors often does not include a blood workup, and when it does, the test is usually limited to a traditional lipids panel. At Optimal Wellness, we offer a far more comprehensive panel of advanced tests, including:

  • Lipoprotein particle size/number and Apolipoprotein concentration tests. These tests reveal levels of good and bad cholesterol particles, which provide a far better predictor of risk than traditional lipid profiles alone.
  • Advanced tests to detect strain or other damage to the heart muscle, which can lead to more appropriate treatment for preventing heart attacks.
  • Advanced tests to measure the level of inflammation of blood vessels that may lead to plaque rupture, ultimately resulting in a heart attack or stroke.
  • Tests to develop a Fatty Acid Profile, a potent indicator of the nutrients in your diet that can improve cardiovascular health.

Genomic Testing

The standard heart disease diagnostic panel offered by most doctors often does not include a blood workup, and when it does, the test is usually limited to a traditional lipids panel. At Optimal Wellness, we offer a far more comprehensive panel of advanced tests, including:

  • Genetic markers predict risk for heart attacks and strokes
  • Sensitivity tests to better understand your body’s ability to metabolize and respond to commonly prescribed cardiac medications.

Advanced Diagnostics

Carotid Ultrasound – Using this safe, painless procedure, we use sound waves to examine the structure and function of your carotid arteries – the two arteries in your neck that deliver blood from your heart to your brain. The carotid ultrasound test helps to identify blocked or narrowed carotid arteries, which can lead to a stroke.

Myocardial Ischemia Assessment 

A non-invasive assessment that delivers a unique gauge of cardiovascular health that would normally require nuclear stress testing, and is a breakthrough in the precise diagnosis of coronary artery disease. The patient need only relax for 10 minutes prior to the test. The procedure is similar to a simple electrocardiogram, and the system compares the results against an internal data base containing over 30,000 patient cases to diagnose abnormalities that may require further work-up.

3D Body Scan

Non-invasively provides key physiological indicators to evaluate a patient’s risk factors for multiple health conditions, including dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, pre-hypertensive conditions and abnormalities with blood vessel physiology, as well as a cardiovascular hemodynamic evaluation. With this detailed information, your health practitioner can plan and address the most efficient, effective way to optimal health and wellbeing.

VO2 Max

This non-invasive test measures the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide breathed out during exercise and the peak oxygen consumption (VO2 max). When used in our Heart Disease Screening Program, your results help us to identify potential cardiac issues and can help in the development of a heart healthy lifestyle program tailored specifically to your needs.
