Therapies Offered

Diet and Nutritional Counseling
 Dietary changes are vital as it can help stimulate the body's own innate healing ability. The saying "food as your medicine" is true.  However, sometimes diet alone is not enough to stimulate healing, as the illness is so deep rooted that additional therapies such as intravenous vitamin injections, homeopathy, acupuncture, herbs and supplements need to be utilized.  In addition, lifestyle changes need to be addressed such as stress reduction, inner (emotional) work, and increase in physical exercise. 
Furthermore, vital to a overall health is a healthy digestive system as it is responsible for the absorption of nutrients and removal of waste from the body.  If the body is unable to absorb nutrients or eliminate waste, even the most nutritious foods and best supplements will not be fully utilized. Proper nutrition begins with identifying foods that cause irritation to the digestive tract.  Simple blood tests can determine food sensitivities or allergies your body has.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)
Bio-identical hormones is gaining momentum in the world of hormonal therapy.  They are derived from natural sources such as soybean, yam, or other plants. Bio-identical hormones tend to be identical to human hormones, unlike synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones use the weaker form of estradiol and estrogen, in appropriate amounts, that provide symptomatic relief without the associated risk of disease.  Individualized needs can be addressed with bio-identical hormones versus the "one size fits all" approach seen with traditional HRT drugs. Bio-identical hormones provide women with a safer alternative to traditional HRT allowing for symptomatic relief of common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, low libido, low energy, low mood, and vaginal dryness.
