Age Healthier at Blue Ridge Heart & Wellness
May the Rest of Your Years be the Best of Your Years!
Conventional wisdom defines health as ‘the absence of disease’. However, the absence of the diseases diagnosed by conventional testing is only ‘minimal health’. Optimal health embodies physical fitness, high physical energy, mental alertness & clarity, emotional stability, a strong immune system, robust sexuality, good digestive and eliminative functions and mitigation of the degenerative diseases of aging.
At Blue Ridge Heart & Wellness, in addition to offering traditional cardiovascular diagnostic and treatment, we focus on the underlying causes of aging and disease, integrating evidence-based therapies and recommendations based on physiology. Treatment is individualized and comprehensive. Your treatment plan may include bio-identical hormone optimization, medications, nutraceuticals, and diet and lifestyle modifications.
Dr. Christina Bove is a board-certified cardiologist. She completed her undergraduate and medical school training at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, in Rochester, New York. She completed her Internal Medicine residency and Cardiology training at Yale New Haven Hospital and The University of Virginia Health System. She is currently completing a Fellowship and Certification program with the Age Management Medicine Group and is a Certified Biote Provider.
Dr. Bove strives to offer a personalized approach to providing innovative care in the prevention, early detection, and treatment of disease of the heart and circulatory system. In recent years, Dr. Bove has expanded her practice into preventative cardiology. After over a decade of treating her patients in a busy private practice providing traditional "sick care", she came to realize that she could help people before they reached the level of needing a cardiologist. By integrating Bio-identical Hormone Optimization Therapy, nutraceuticals, and providing a medically supervised nutritional protocol, along with education, she strives to help her patients lead healthier, happier and more active lives.
