Maxwell explains, “While routine lipid screening plays an important role in cardiovascular risk determination, it does not provide a complete picture of cardiovascular health. In fact, nearly 50 percent of all heart attacks and strokes occur in patients with ‘normal’ cholesterol levels.

Maxwell works with her patients to identify any potential cardio-metabolic disorders and to uncover hidden risks leading to cardiovascular disease. For example, latest studies have shown that a byproduct of gut bacteria metabolism has been associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk. Maxwell then creates a targeted individualized treatment plan designed to improve cardiovascular health. Patients can take action through diet, lifestyle and specific nutrients to reduce their risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Maxwell has been practicing naturopathic medicine for 17 years and has helped numerous people reverse hyperlipidemia, manage hypertension naturally and recover their health and vitality.
