What are commonly prescribed treatments?
Many of the chronic health problems that plague Americans today are the result of dietary and lifestyle choices. Illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, and gastrointestinal problems may develop as a consequence of the food we choose. By altering our diet and adopting a more healthy lifestyle, we can often change or reverse the course of an illness and restore health.
Nutrition and diet plans - You have unique nutritional and biochemical needs. Many illnesses are due to the body's need for a specific nutrient that is unknowingly deficient. Others may be due to reactions to foods you may be eating. Diet changes, a cleansing program, or the prescription of specific nutrients may quickly and easily eliminate a problem that has been persistent for many years.
Plant Medicines - Plants have been used for millennia for their healing properties. Combining the best of ancient knowledge with modern herbal research, we prescribe plant medicines that greatly enhance your natural healing abilities. Plants are used medicinally because they do not have high toxicity, accumulate in the body, or cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms. Herbs are used to enhance immune function; improve digestion; normalize bodily functions; destroy bacteria, viruses, and fungi; soothe irritated tissues; calm nerves; and relax muscles. Examples of botanical treatments are teas, poultices, and tinctures.
Natural Hormones - The natural hormones we use for menopause support are synthexized from plants and have the same structure as human hormones. Therefore they interact with our body as our own hormones do. Our natural hormones are prescribed in exact milligram amounts.
The natural hormones for thyroid support we use are from flash-frozen porcine thyroid preparation and are also identical to human hormones. The natural thyroid we are using is a fixed ration of T4/T3 of 4:1 and is dosed in exacted microgram amounts.
Hydrotherapy - Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, is the application of water to initiate cure. It is a safe and painless therapy that can be done at home for all types of injury and illness. Some common hydrotherapy treatments are hot footbath, constitutional hydrotherapy, warming socks, and the castor oil pack.
Homeopathy - Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body's own healing process. These medicines treat the whole person on physical, emotional, and mental levels using specially prepared natural substances to initiate healing. Homeopathy is used to treat all forms of acute and chronic illness and injury and is safe for children, pregnant or lactating women, and the elderly.
