Better than Painkillers?

If you’ve been paying attention to the news over the past few years you know the country is gripped by an opioid epidemic. There are millions of people in America who are hooked on painkillers because they’ve been given a prescription that gets them addicted. In many of these circumstances, the painkillers were given to them after a minor surgery. And in some instances, the patient was given a prescription for something as minor as constant headaches. The point of this email is to let you know that Western medicine tends to get it wrong with pain by thinking the best way to beat pain is with a drug. The facts are that many people would do far better at...

This Calming Balm Isn’t Just For Children

Like most people, I don’t think many of you would say it’s a bad idea to make health products that protect our children.While medical technology has come a long way in the past 100 years, not everything we give to children is good for them.Whether we’re talking about the foods they eat, i.e. sugar-laden foods that promote obesity, or, we’re talking about medications for children that are purposefully filled with preservatives, artificial colors and outright dangerous ingredients, plenty of things our kids get are horrible for their developing bodies. As an integrative-health MD, I generally only work with adults. But, as a father of two young boys, I think constantly about what I give my children and how it affects their development.This is...

Nor do I put myself out there and claim that I’m a physician focused exclusively on this aspect of health.

Sit In This For 20 Minutes For Dramatic Healing

  A few months ago we got an interesting new medical device in our office. This medical device is one of the most interesting healing machines you’ll ever see. Not only does it look weird, it’s powerful enough to help treat some of the most debilitating and painful conditions known to man.  Our patients swear by it - claiming that just a few sessions with the device has reversed their suffering entirely.  The device I’m referencing is an infrared sauna.  If you’re a patient here and have been in the office in the past 6 months chances are you’ve seen or heard about our infrared sauna.  If you’re not a patient, or you just want a little bit more information on...

How To Stop Allergies - Naturally

Here in North Carolina allergy season is in full swing. Truth is, it’s in full swing all over the United States. Except for Alaska, they’re still under a few feet of snow so they’re a few weeks’ behind.  And that means a lot of people suffering through stuffy noses, runny noses, itchy eyes, and congestion that never seems to end.  Most people assume that allergies are something they’ll simply have to suffer through in the spring and fall. But, that’s not necessarily the case.  Truthfully the only thing you have to suffer through in the spring are the NBA Championships.... Can you tell I was a collegiate soccer player?  In all seriousness just because you have allergies today doesn’t mean you’ll have...
