We Hold The Key to Successfully Treating Your Problems
A comprehensive history and a thorough physical examination followed by appropriate tests, reveal the underlying causes of illnesses. Treatment methods are built and put into place based on the exact causes revealed.
The key to successfully treating a problem is to figure out exactly what the causes are.
Causes of chronic illness fall under three broad categories:
- Nutritional and dietary
Here is an overview of various treatment options available:
- Symptomatic Treatment: sometimes you may need symptomatic treatment like pain medication for headache, nasal sprays for sinus problems, or inhalers for asthma. There is nothing wrong with that. However for more lasting relief you have to treat the underlying cause.
- Treating Environmental Causes: Environmental causes are things we breathe like dust, molds, pollen, animal dander, foods, and chemicals. There are two main treatment modalities.
- Avoidance: Avoid things that you are sensitive to like foods, animal dander, dust, and molds as much as possible.
- Immunotherapy: However, total avoidance is not always possible such as dust, molds, pollens etc. Here immunotherapy (allergy injections) may be given to combat allergy reactions. A new method of allergy treatment called Serial Dilution Testing provides prompt and effective relief.
- Treating Hormonal Causes: Common causes include hypothyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, female and male hormonal deficiencies. Treatment includes natural hormonal replacement. For insulin resistance low carbohydrate diet is the cornerstone.
- Treating Nutritional and Dietary Causes: Nutritional deficiencies can be minerals, vitamins, amino-acids, and essential fatty acids. Oral supplementation may be sufficient or intravenous administration may be needed.
- Trigger-point Treatment for Chronic Pain and Headaches
- Chelation Treatment: heavy metal toxicity like lead, cadmium and mercury etc.
