Feel Better, Stay Better, Here’s How:

Integrative medicine is personally tailored medicine. It deals with primary prevention and underlying causes of chronic disease rather than simply removing or masking symptoms once they arise. Integrative medicine emphasizes true healing, treatment of the person rather than a disease, and a partnership of joint responsibility between doctor and patient, with the patient carrying most of the load. It also embraces the most current science in diagnosing early abnormalities that eventually lead to chronic illness.

If you are looking for a practice that will offer what insurance will pay, we are not the right fit for you. If you are looking for a practice that will give you what you need, we are right for you. We will give a service that you will value and appreciate.

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL / INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?

Integrative medicine is personally tailored medicine. It deals with primary prevention and underlying causes of chronic disease rather than simply removing or masking symptoms once they arise. Integrative medicine emphasizes true healing, treatment of the person rather than a disease, and a partnership of joint responsibility between doctor and patient, with the patient carrying most of the load. It also embraces the most current science in diagnosing early abnormalities that eventually lead to chronic illness.

 

Integrative medicine uses botanicals and other forms of nutritional supplementation rather than pharmaceutical agents that create high levels of stress damage. Under the influence of integrative medicine, “old age” is not what it used to be, anti-aging is now a science, and optimized living is the “new normal” for people of every age.

 

In light of the above points, I view integrative medicine as a complement to traditional medicine and not an alternative. Systems of health protection should work together where possible. One approach cannot serve all of “heaven and earth.”

HORMONE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM - $97/Month

WHAT IS HORMONE REPLACEMENT?

Hormones are essential for optimal health and wellness. Many symptoms that impair quality of life and have association with multiple deleterious medical conditions have been linked to hormonal imbalances. We use bioidentical hormones (which have the identical chemical structure as the one your body produces) to bring them to youthful levels and to improve or eliminate your symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance.

WHO IS THE IDEAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT PATIENT?

Women undergoing perimenopause, menopause, men undergoing the equivalent (“andropause”), or people with medical conditions associated with hormonal deficits.

WHAT IS THE COST OF HORMONE REPLACEMENT?

Hormone Replacement Program costs: $97/month or $997/year ($167 in savings)

  • Lab costs are not included in your program: Some labs may be covered by insurance depending on your carrier and coverage.
  • Some lab tests that may be recommended during your treatment based on each individual’s needs: Serum, saliva, and/or urinary tests to help tailor a customized program.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE HORMONE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

After a thorough evaluation of your questionnaire, you will also have state of the art tests to determine your hormonal status as well as a detailed physical exam. You will then be prescribed hormones that will be customized to you, with appropriate follow ups and benefits only given to people in the VIP program.

The success of our patients depends largely on their commitment. We guide, educate and support our patients towards a new lifestyle where there will be nutrition changes, hormone supplementation, vitamin and mineral supplementation, stress reduction and more.
