There are alternative options to treat cardiovascular disease. One option is cardiac rehabilitation. Cardiac rehab is a therapy program designed to rebuild your strength and endurance following a cardiac incident such as a heart attack or stroke. In addition, there are natural or herbal remedies that may be used to treat some aspects of cardiovascular disease. You should discuss these with your doctor to see if they are an option for you. Furthermore, there are activities you can participate in to reduce your stress, such as yoga, meditation, or other relaxation techniques.
