Established Problems and Diseases

 

Many patients find out Clinic after they've already been diagnosed with a specific disease or health problem. They are often not happy with the options their doctor is giving them and want to know if there are options to consider beyond what standard medicine has to offer. Others are dealing with major side effects from the prescription drugs they are taking and want to know if it's possible to reduce the dosage or eliminate prescription drugs all together.

 

As general practitioners, NDs are uniquely qualified to evaluate most medical problems and determine if, and to what extent, holistic medicine can replace or complement a patient's current course of care.  The relationship between NDs and MDs is a peer relationship, so we can be part of a patient's healthcare team, helping co-manage care with other medical doctors who may be providing care.   We provide patients with options they won't find anywhere else.

Advanced Digestive Diseases
Irritable Bowel Syndrome, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, colitis and ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, leaky gut syndrome and ulcers

Most digestive disease are directly associated with the foods we eat and our nutritional status. Dietary changes, supplements and food sensitivity testing are very effectively at treating the underlying problem while we work to heal your digestive system and improving how it functions.

Liver and Kidney Diseases 
Fatty liver disease, hepatitis, cirrhosis, cancer and other liver dysfunction and various kidney diseases 

Our liver and kidneys eliminate waste products from metabolism, drugs, and chemicals from our environment and can fall into dysfunction from our diet, lifestyle or environment.  We use a variety of holistic methods to treat liver and kidney dysfunction and reduce a patient's lifetime risk of related health problems.

Women's Health
Menopause symptoms, bio-identical hormones, PMS, fibroids, infertility, pre/post natal care, cervical dysplasia and women's reproductive cancers

A women's reproductive system presents special challenges for women of all ages. Many symptoms, disorders and diseases are caused by hormonal imbalances that can be effectively treated using herbs, supplements, nutraceuticals, diet & lifestyle changes and other holistic therapies without the side effects of drugs.

Exhaustion Disorders
General fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, thyroid dysfunction, migraines, adrenal fatigue and endocrine disorders

Fatigue, exhaustion and headaches are poorly handled by the medical system because they tend to be multi-factorial, and have a strong basis in diet, stress, hormones and lifestyle.  We assess many factors that contribute to fatigue/exhaustion and prescribe holistic treatment plans to treat the primary causes.

Age Related Disorders - 
High or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, cardiovascular disease osteoporosis/osteopenia and various types of joint and tendon pain 

As we age, a lifetime of bad habits or genetic predispositions can catch up with us.  We help patients sort through the clutter of information and put together holistic treatment plans to help patients reverse or slow the progress of age related health problems and treat the underlying deficiencies causing it. 

Musculoskeletal Disorders
Arthritis/osteoarthritis, ligament and tendon injuries and tears, muscle injuries and tears, after surgery recovery, sports performance and and trigger points

Many types of joint pain are treatable without having to resort to surgery and pain medication.  We utilize a wide array of holistic approaches to treating joint pain that can mitigate pain & inflammation, support healing of the ligaments, tendons and muscle, and improve a patient's rate and extent of recovery.

Cancer Support Services
Intensive diet and lifestyle support and nutritional supplement regimens for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer and are receiving conventional care.

A wealth of research shows that patients can significantly increase their survival odds, length and quality of life by using supportive cancer therapies.  We develop treatment plans centered around diet, nutritional supplements, herbs and other holistic therapies to help strenthening the body's natural defenses against cancer and support recovery from surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.   

Mood and Brain Disorders
Stress, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, autism and spectrum disorders

Stress, anxiety, depression and ADD/ADHD can often be eliminated or alleviated by making the right changes to diet and lifestyle, and by utilizing various holistic therapies.  We help patients understand the root causes of their symptoms and develop treatment plans to help them get back on track.
