A woman's body and her health are the most precious of her possessions. Achieving wellness naturally means assisting the body to work optimally using safe, effective approaches free of the dangerous side-effects of drugs and the risk and humiliation of invasive procedures. Nutrition, herbs, natural body work and lifestyle changes are highly effective in enhancing one's quality of life and achievement of optimal health. Monthly ups and downs do not have to be a way of life. Your body chemistry can be harmonized so that you feel your best all the time, free of the anxiety, mood swings, cramping, headaches and downtime too often associated with the menstrual cycle. For women over forty, the all too common symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, can be eliminated through nutritional supplements, herbs, and dietary improvements. Recent research confirms that conventional medical hormone replacement greatly increases the risk of getting cancer. At our clinic we have safe, effective alternatives. Osteoporosis (bone loss) and arthritis can be prevented, or reversed through natural means, rather than dangerous drugs which can damage vital organs, or the futile use of antacids as a "calcium supplement" which cannot effectively work because we need stomach acid in order to absorb calcium and other minerals. We have had many women whose bone density tests have dramatically improved from abnormal to normal after following our suggestions.
Our approach to weight management is both sensible and easy. We do not encourage dangerous fad diets nor gimmick products. Instead, we look for the underlying causes of why you have trouble losing or gaining weight. Very often food allergies or underactive thyroid are at the core of weight problems. Chronic pain, sometimes labeled as fibromyalgia, may have various factors perpetuating this common complaint. Nutrition, organ functioning (especially the liver and the digestive system) can be major components
perpetuating pain. Our comprehensive understanding of the problem takes all of the possible triggers into account, and our utilization of nutrition, herbs, allergy correction, and deep tissue muscle therapy combined with patient relaxation exercises has proven incredibly effective.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common complaints in America, and surgery for it is the most commonly performed operation in the United States. By contrast the procedure is seldom done in Europe. Why? Because the carpal tunnel surgery fails 95% of the time. That's right, it's only 5% successful. Why? Because most of the tingling, numbness, and pain in the hand/wrist/fingers is not coming from the wrist, but from tight muscle points in the forearm, upper arm, chest, shoulder blade, or throat! Occasionally neck vertebrae are involved in nerve impingement as well. The symptoms commonly associated with carpal tunnel syndrome are usually repetitive-strain related. Our approach of correcting the causes of the symptoms, with trigger point muscle therapy, exercise, and occasionally nutrition has helped many hundreds of people avoid useless and potentially-damaging surgery, as well as restored function to those already impaired by failed operations.
Our approach to fatigue, stress, and mood problems such as depression is first to acknowledge the validity of what you are experiencing. Too often doctors dismiss patients' complaints as "all in their head." This is insulting, and mainly a defensive maneuver to deflect responsibility from the uninformed and inept doctor back onto the suffering patient by denying the legitimacy and honesty of the patient. We realize that your problems are real, and seek to find the causes, which can range from low blood sugar, candida yeast infestations, food allergies, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, to underactive thyroid, environmental sensitivities and hormone imbalances.
We've included in this section a mention of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism, which are epidemics among children of both sexes. Causes include food allergies, over-consumption of junk food, sugar, and food colorings and additives, candida yeast infections often triggered from repeated use of antibiotics for such complaints as ear problems, and adverse reactions to childhood immunizations. We have helped many children and adults overcome such debilitating conditions, enabling them to lead normal, productive, socially harmonious lives, without the use of ritalin and other dangerous drugs.
People of both sexes and all ages suffer from food and environmental allergies. We actually have a method for decreasing, and in many cases, eliminating the allergy. For more information. click on the special allergy section on the home page menu.
A growing problem in our country is digestive upset. The conventional medical approach is to suppress symptoms with dangerous antacids. In most cases, people over forty have too little digestive juices, including stomach acid. Furthermore, when these are neutralized, digestion and utilization of nutrients become seriously impaired, if not impossible. The commonly diagnosed GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disorder) is wrongly treated with antacids, rather than addressing the cause, which is invariably a displacement of the stomach known as hiatal hernia. We have a manual maneuver that can correct the proper positioning of the stomach, thus stopping the reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus. Often GERD sufferers experience a dramatic decrease in their symptoms after just one or several treatments, which are non-invasive.
If you are looking for a caring, compassionate, and respectful professional staff who listen to your concerns rather than dismiss them, and a clinic that specializes in effective, safe, natural methods to optimize your health, we humbly offer ourselves at your service.
