Diet and Lifestyle
In our modern society, the standard American diet is highly processed and holds little nutritional value. We may provide you with dietary and lifestyle interventions based on your health history and goals. Food is powerful and can be used for general wellness, weight loss, or specific conditions. We understand that no two people are the same, which means that diet is NOT a one size fits all concept.
Homeopathic medicine is a safe, gentle, and effective treatment for acute and chronic disease. It works by stimulating the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. Treatments are highly individualized and the results can be profound.
Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that promotes healing through pressure. Cupping helps relieve muscle tension and improves blood flow. Glass cups are briefly heated by a flame and then placed on the patient’s skin to create a suction. This helps promotes healing and stretches deep layers of muscle, reducing pain. Patients usually feel a slight pulling sensation on their skin, but the process is generally painless.
Did you know that it is important to get routine blood work done every year? Getting routine blood work is crucial for diagnosing a number of diseases and conditions. Routine blood work usually evaluates blood cell health, liver and kidney health, thyroid health, blood sugar levels, and cholesterol levels. Although some diseases and medical problems cannot be diagnosed via blood work, knowing your numbers can help you and your doctor learn more about your health.
Vitamin IV or IM therapy
Ramp up your wellness with a combination of IV or IM nutrients! IV and IM nutrients go directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract. These therapies can help to combat viral illness, ease pain, and improve mental and emotional health. They have a wide variety of uses because nutrients and vitamins are required for many processes in the human body including neurotransmitter and hormone production, and work as powerful antioxidants to boost immunity.
Botanical medicine is medicine made from plants or herbs and is a powerful medicine for acute and chronic disease. This medicine can come in many different forms such as capsules, teas, tinctures, or extracts.
