PROLOTHERAPY

Weak ligaments and tendons are often the cause of pain and joint damage. Traditional approaches, such as surgery, physical therapy or anti-inflammatory drugs, often fail to stabilize the joint or provide lasting relief from pain. Prolotherapy directly addresses the cause of the instability by strengthening and healing stretched or torn ligaments and tendons. Improved function means less pain.Click here to go to this page

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

It is irresponsible to burden a weight patient with the line “Eat less and exercise more.” The key to lasting weight management is not simple.

Does Everyone Need Supplements?

 

“If people eat wild, fresh, organic, local, non-genetically modified food grown in virgin material and nutrient rich soils that has not been transported across vast distances and stored for months before being eaten… and work and live outside, breathe only fresh unpolluted air, drink only pure clean water, sleep nine hours a night, move their bodies every day, and are free from chronic stressors and exposure to environmental toxins, than perhaps they might not need supplements.”

~Mark Hyman, MD


 

It is growing increasingly difficult to receive the nutrients necessary for our bodies to thrive through diet alone, as we once did. Over-farming our land, genetically modifying our seeds, and pesticide use are among reasons for this decline in the nutrient values of our foods. Dr. Hyman has encapsulated this difficulty in the above quote.

Nutritional supplements can fill in dietary gaps caused by today’s inferior foods. More than forty vitamins and minerals are utilized in the body to preserve health and prevent illness. They must all be present in optimal amounts for proper function. If one is missing or deficient, benefit can be reduced. Therefore, it is important to insure optimum intake of balanced nutrients. Furthermore, researchers are finding that some important vitamins and minerals are protective against disease in amounts that may be difficult to obtain through diet alone, no matter how well you eat. A great example of this would be Vitamin D, which naturally occurs in very few foods.

The first step to obtaining the right balance of nutrients is understanding your own nutritional needs. The doctors at The Center for Optimal Health can create a plan for you to help reach your daily nutritional goals through food and dietary supplements. Once you have achieved this balance, you will be amazed at how great you feel!
