We ask, “Why are you sick, why are you unhappy, why are you so stressed out and not sleeping, and when did all this begin?” I cannot wait to meet you and listen to your needs and be your makeover wellness doctor!
I am also trained in environmental medicine. What does this mean? I can assess one’s total “environmental load” with specialized testing. We offer specialized testing to assess one’s toxic burden. When there’s been an exposure to toxic molds, pesticides, herbicides, gasoline, solvents, styrofoam food packaging, heavy metals, etc., these exposures can create health issues such as brain fog, fatigue, rashes, tremors, hormone dysregulation, and depression. Detoxification and avoidance of these environmental toxins is key to regaining one’s health and wellness.
I have advanced training in hormone balancing and bioidentical hormone replacement as well as my bioidentical hormone pellet certification with Pellacome. Pellacome offers an innovative way to insert pellets to reduce patient discomfort, reduce time inserting the pellets, and the advanced pellet delivery system guides the pellets for even distribution.
We also offer PRF and stem cell facials. Plasma-rich fibrin, PRF, is an advanced system from CosmoFrance offering a higher quality of stem cells than PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facials. The PRF obtained from your blood will stimulate more growth factors which in turn stimulates collagen growth which gives the skin a fuller look, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
The IV Lounge
Come in for an IV drip. I have advanced training in IV drip therapy with certification to do chelation therapy for heavy metals. We use Liquivida IVs that offer the highest grade of vitamins and nutrients. Liquivida’s nutrients are FDA approved and second party tested. This means that each IV is fresh and guaranteed quality ingredients. We can run a nutrient test to see what nutrients your body is lacking and needing. Here is a list of the different kinds of IVs offered:
Liquivida’s signature IV drip is designed to improve health in the long term.
Fountain of Youth
Replenishes the body for noticeably healthier skin, hair, and nails.
Strengthens muscles and joints before or after intense physical activities
By removing heavy metals, each cell will work and function better, especially the brain. It is also great to do pre-conception as heavy metals can be passed onto the fetus.
Protects the body and speeds up recovery from an airborne illness such as a cold.
Rise and Shine
Reduces headaches and helps with fatigue or exhaustion after a hangover.
Promotes mental clarity and focus during work hours and beyond.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant needed for detoxification in every cell in the body. It rejuvenates cells, slows down aging, and clears out stuck toxins in the cells.
I also do home visits for those too sick to come into the office. I also offer home visits to assess one’s home for toxicities like mold and look in the pantry and refrigerator to assess where improvements can be made for eating healthier. I have an organizing team to rid the home of excess clutter to improve one’s overall home wellness. When our home is cluttered, our minds can’t relax and the clutter can induce negative feelings about oneself.
Does your gut need a wellness makeover? Do you experience digestive distress before or after you eat? Some digestive problems arise from an imbalance in the flora of the digestive tract. Food sensitivities can be caused by a “leaky gut”; damage to the microvilli in the small intestine. Did you know by age 40 we produce 50% less natural digestive enzymes? And that stress and poor eating habits weakens the digestive lining leading to diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating. Naturopathic medicine addresses these issues and can help heal the intestinal tract.
Hidden infection, hormone imbalances, adrenal fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, pain and depression are some of the causes of fatigue. Our approach to addressing fatigue is multifaceted. We may run blood tests, saliva hormone tests, address life stresses, chronic pain, and sleep disturbances to help heal fatigue.
Many people do not know that they have an environmental “toxic load” in their bodies from heavy metals and/or environmental chemical toxicity. Our heavy metals and “toxic-core” tests are invaluable for diagnosing and detoxifying the body.
Male and Female Health
As we age women can have a disruption of the hormone pathway. Hormones can become imbalanced due to stress, environmental toxins, and nutrition deficits. We provide a wide range of hormone testing and treatment from detoxification, addressing adrenal fatigue, thyroid balancing, bioidentical hormone replacement, and pre-pregnancy toxic environmental testing and detoxification for both mom and dad.
Understanding why we gain weight, what is a healthy weight, not just a healthy BMI, and working on the “primary plate” is the goal of weight loss at our practice. The “primary plate” encompasses 8 areas of life that can become out of balance and then weight gain occurs. Addressing food and diet is the “secondary plate” and usually will come back into balance on its own once the “primary plate” is balanced. Let’s get going on your wellness makeover by assessing your primary plate.
How do you handle stress? We all deal with stress in different ways. How are you handling your stress? Stress is detrimental to our health in so many ways. It can lead to cardiac issues, weight gain or loss, drug and alcohol abuse, too much anger or withdrawal to name just a few. We offer mind and body balancing strategies. We also offer one-on-one psychotherapy to bring the mind and body back in harmony. So many times we don’t realize that stress has “piled up” making life unbearable. What needs to change to lessen the stress? Let’s find out together. You are not alone.
