Half of our patients come to us in good health and they want our help to stay healthy. Aging is accompanied by deterioration on multiple fronts, including atrophy (shrinkage) of the brain, heart, and muscle; loss of energy and strength; joint stiffness; increased blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides; narrowing of blood vessels; increased risk of cancer; and loss of cognitive function. Utilizing the latest advances in metabolic and nutritional medicine, we can help stop and slow these common degenerative effects of aging and keep you healthy and strong.

 

The other half of our patients come to us quite ill. They are tired of doctors who only treat the effects of disease rather than combat the root causes of disease. They know that prescription drugs don’t cure anything and only mask the symptoms. They need a doctor that can uncover what’s keeping them sick and remove any roadblocks that are standing in the way of getting better. Utilizing the latest advances in metabolic and nutritional medicine, not only can we combat the root causes of disease, we can help maintain health and vitality once it is achieved.
