Healthy Living, Mental Health, Naturopathic Medical Doctor, Naturopathic Medicine, Nutrition


In the heart of Southern California, where the sun meets the surf, prioritizing cardiovascular health is essential for a vibrant lifestyle and here we are going to show you Natural Ways to Improve Cardiovascular Health.

In the last 4 years heart health has become an increasingly concerning topic of discussion among healthcare institutions. We have been seeing blood pressures rise, more cases of pericarditis and more frequent need for cardiovascular medications. Let’s take a look at natural ways to enhance heart health through holistic medicine, encompassing heart-healthy nutrition, exercises and stress reduction techniques.

4 Heart-Healthy Nutrition Tips to Naturally Improve Cardiovascular Health:

1.) Omega-3s:

Incorporate fatty fish like salmon or locally grown Santa Barbara avocados, rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3s, into your diet. These essential fatty acids support heart health and reduce inflammation in the body.

2.) Fruits & Vegetables:

Load your plate with vibrant fruits and vegetables. The antioxidants and fiber found in these foods are crucial for cardiovascular health and are often part of a natural health-focused diet.

3.) Substitute Lemon Juice for Salt: 

Fresh lemon juice is a great substitute for salt. Salt can worsen some cardiovascular diseases and needs to be taken in moderation.

4.) Tea

Sip on teas like hibiscus or green tea, known for their heart-protective properties. Naturopathic Doctors often integrate these beverages into regenerative medicine plans.

Heart Healthy Lifestyle Changes:

Lifting weights is the best way to improve cardiovascular and muscular strength, promote weight loss and support heart health. Our Naturopathic Doctors at Regenerate Health Medical Center recommend weight lifting for holistic cardiovascular well-being and there are a plethora of options for individualized weight lifting programs in Santa Barbara.

Leverage the sunny So Cal weather with outdoor activities. Walking, jogging, ocean swimming or cycling along the scenic coastline not only benefits your heart but also aligns with the region’s active lifestyle.


Incorporate stress-reducing yoga sessions by the beach. This mindful exercise promotes healthy, low impact blood flow.

Practice deep, mindful breathing exercises to reduce stress and blood pressure. At Regenerate Health Medical Center in Santa Barbara, we often recommend breathwork and nervous system re-training as part of our naturopathic protocols, fostering natural health and relaxation.

Explore holistic stress management techniques such as meditation and biofeedback. These practices, integral to naturopathic healing, contribute to overall cardiovascular health by reducing inflammation and stress hormones, which also affects blood sugars, hunger and metabolism.
