We offer an integrative approach to health and fitness. By combining the best of Western traditional medicine, preventative medicine, oriental medicine, orthomolecular medicine and the mind and body connection, the totality of the patient is evaluated and treated.
For the past 25 years we developed an approach that looks to the root of chronic disease (as oppose to treating the symptoms and labeling them with all kinds of diagnosis). By treating nutritional deficiencies, balancing hormones, detoxifying the body, treating chronic Candida and bacterial infections, and balancing the energy systems of the body, the root cause of illness can be addressed and effectively treated.
A highlight on a few of the avant-garde procedures that we offer:

Neural Therapy is one of the most advanced and effective of holistic healing modalities. It is quite similar to acupuncture, and involves using a very tiny needle to inject a mixture of Procaine into various points on the body. The injections are designed to remove “interference fields” that effect Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). Interference fields are traumatized areas of the body that interfere with the body’s innate healing process. We now know that many chronic disorders have one or more interference fields. These fields must be removed before the body can restore itself to health. Failure to remove these fields is the most common reason why a patient does not respond to treatment.The following conditions usually respond nicely to neural therapy: allergies, headache, vertigo, hay fever, sinusitis, whiplash syndrome, painful scars, liver disorders, colitis, menstrual pain, endometriosis, joint and muscular rheumatism, reflex dystrophy, arthritis, all forms of neuralgia, restless leg syndrome, TMJ syndrome, and facial and jaw pain and more.

Classical homeopathic remedy prescribing is an art form that goes back over a century ago to the days when Samuel Hahnemann first discovered that small dilutions of the same substances that cause symptoms will alleviate those very same symptoms. The remedies themselves consist of either drops or tablets that are administered under the tongue.Besides being an especially effective treatment for emotional symptoms such as anxiety and depression, classical homeopathy can also be very beneficial in the treatment of all disorders from cancer to arthritis. It can also be used to treat infants. In fact one of the greatest practical uses for these remedies has been for colic in newborns. At the Integrated Medicine and Nutrition, we have found that classical homeopathy is a critical component for getting well from any chronic disease. We have also seen terrific results with emotional symptoms such as depression, anxiety, anger, stress disorders and grief.
