Preventive Medicine/Anti-Aging

The concept of preventive medicine is based upon the utilization of scientific data for the purpose of maintaining optimal health, vitality and longevity. Healthful nutritional strategies are established for each patient according to a careful evaluation of patient symptoms, history, diet and lifestyle, together with state of the art methods which provide accurate assessment of environmental and food sensitivities. Skillful integration of this data is essential to establish specific treatment and support necessary to address present symptoms as well as to provide a lifelong preventive protocol.

ENVIROMENTAL MEDICINE/ ALLERGY

Environmental medicine is devoted to the careful investigation of those factors in the environment which can disturb our mental and physical well being. This is a relatively new discipline which offers the opportunity to better understand how the individual interfaces with his or her environment.
Today we recognize the fact that allergic reactions (intolerance or sensitivities) to foods, inhalants and chemicals may be directly related to many systemic illnesses (i.e., arthritis, sinusitis, dermatitis, asthma, migraine, colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, etc). When understood within the context of environmental medicine, many complex health problems can be successfully resolved through careful management of the environment and effective allergy immunotherapy.

Allergy and illness

Allergy symptoms are responsible for more visits to the doctor’s office than any single illness in this country. Recent statistics shows that about 25% of the US population or approximately 75 million people suffer from some form of allergy. An allergy can be defined as an abnormal physical reaction to normally harmless substances called allergens. These allergens such as dust, molds, pollen, foods, chemicals, drugs, cosmetics and insect venoms can be inhaled, ingested, contacted on the skin or injected.
Allergic symptoms, therefore, can take many different forms and affect many organs and tissues of the body. Read more →
