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.

Weight gain is not a character flaw, and certainly not “all in your head.” It is a complex metabolic process. ~ David E. Pawsat, DO Click here to go to this page

Considering Resilience – 10 week class at CFOH

Resilience – the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.

 

How are the skills we learn and the choices we make promoting or discouraging our resilience?
It starts with energy. When we are always tired, just going through the motions, we are unlikely to think about such interesting concepts as resilience.

Let’s start with nutritional and hormonal balance. Do you have a sluggish thyroid? Hashimoto’s? Are you getting proper sleep? Do you have irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, reflux, leaky gut? Chronic joint pains? Fibromyalgia? Depression? Menopause symptoms? Poor ability to detoxify? Are you being prescribed several medications? Any of these many exhaust you and make you too tired to think about your long term goals.

During our twelve week class studying resilience we begin by learning how functional medicine enables us to improve energy at the cellular level. Topics include appetite control, anti-inflammatory diet, gut health, stress mechanisms and stress reduction techniques, hormones and their regulation, toxins and detoxification pathways, genes ,exercise choices.

We will then work on specific exercises that promote our communication skills and increase the well -being in ourselves, our families, and our communities.

January through March Dr. Blakeney will teach a weekly class in resilience at The Center for Optimal Health in East Lansing, Michigan on Wednesdays from 5:15 to 6:15PM. The is no cost for the 10 week course.

Call (517) 324-9400 with questions and to reserve your spot!
