At the Center for Natural & Integrative Medicine we strive to become your partner in health. Our mission is to inspire and empower you to live extraordinary lives by nourishing yourself from the inside out. We support you and help you discover a personalized, integrative approach for both men and women to optimize vitality and vibrant health. We test, identify and treat imbalances of hormones, vitamins, micronutrients as well as remove obstacles to healing such as toxins, allergens, and heavy metals. We look for and find the root cause. By treating the whole person, our programs optimize immune function, decrease illiness and enhance the positive outcome for health and well being. Our functional approach truly provides a bridge to health, hope, and healing.
Are you feeling moody, depressed, irritable, or have brain fog? Are you losing hair or libido or feeling hot or aged? Are you finding it difficult to lose weight or perhaps having acne? These are some of the signs of having a hormonal imbalance. Production of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, DHEA, melatonin, human growth hormone, and other hormones tapers off after we reach our 20s and 30s and contribute to the signs and symptoms of aging. Blood, saliva and urine testing for all hormones including the thyroid hormone, optimizing with bio-identical hormones and going beyond just "normal" are a cornerstone therapy at our center.
Chonic Fatigue and Imune Dysfunction Syndromes (abbreviated CFIDS or CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FMS) represent a group of symptoms associated with severe fatigue, insomnia, "brain fog," and, in those with fibromyalgia, widespread pain. Lyme disease symptoms often overlap with those of co-infections or other diseases, such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and lupus. Most people can improve and often recover by using our individualized protocols that address sleep, hormonal support, infections, nutrition, and exercise. Oxidative therapies including hyperbaric, ozone and ultraviolet blood irradiation are very effective. Many patients have recovered using our individualized oral and I.V. nutrition, antibiotics, detoxification and rebuilding the immune system program.
America is home to the most obese people in the world. According to the CDC, approximately 33% of adults are overweight and obesity related deaths have climbed to 300 000 per year. Obesity rates are soaring in our children as well. We believe that healthy weight loss, i.e. loss of fat while conserving muscle, is essential to Anti-aging and Longevity Therapies.
Excess weight has a tendency to creep up on us. It’s important to remember that obesity is much more than a cosmetic issue. If you’re carrying extra pounds, you’re walking a dangerous tightrope towards heart disease, diabetes, and myriad other health concerns.
Weight gain is almost always a consequence of poor eating habits and too little exercise, and we acknowledge the role of therapeutic lifestyle changes in weight management.
We extensively use oral nutritional and herbal support to nourish and energize the body. For our cancer patients we prefer to use intravenous nutrition which involves administering vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or other nutrients directly into the bloodstream (intravenously). Our extensive protocols, some using Vitamin C, Myers cocktail, or Glutathione, help strengthen immune function and are used for chronic fatigue, cancer recovery, migraines, maculardegeneration, allergies and more. We identify food allergies and sensitivity and help with special diets such as gluten free, dairy free, vegan or vegetarian. We frequently test for vitamin, antioxidant and mineral deficiencies, gut flora, Candida and stomach acid.
Chelation is a safe, effective and relatively inexpensive treatment to restore blood flow in patients with atherosclerosis without surgery and to eliminate toxins and heavy metals from your system. It involves the intravenous infusion of a prescription medicine called Ethylene Diamine Tetra-Acetic Acid (EDTA), plus vitamins and minerals at therapeutic dosages. We test for heavy metals, environmental toxins, plastics, PCBs, pesticides and offer I.V. and oral chelation, liver support with oral and I.V. nurtition along with the use of the infra-red sauna, lymphatic drainage. We offer 3, 10, and 28 day detoxification programs that can be tailored to your needs.
