Optimal Health Spectrums – Optimize your health at our Integrative Medical Practice!
At Optimal Health Spectrums, we believe that your health requires a balance among all of the body’s systems, and that just drugging a symptom is not the best approach.
We practice evidence-based Integrative Medicine for men’s, women’s, and children’s health. We look and test for the underlying CAUSES of your symptoms, and treat those causes usually with non-drug approaches, so that the symptoms naturally go away, many times without medication. If a medication is still needed, it can still be used, but it is the last resort, not the first resort.
Lab reference ranges are based on mass population norms. But what if the majority of people today are not optimally healthy? Then the reference ranges are not optimal for health either. That is the situation that we are in today. As an example, the “normal” age for the onset of puberty has been consistently lowered over the years.
Could it be that entire large groups of children are being affected by toxins such as plastics that act as hormone disrupters and are artificially pushing children into puberty before they are mentally or physically ready? Instead of trying to find treatable causes of early puberty, the American Academy of Pediatrics just keeps pushing the normal age for puberty onset earlier and earlier. There are many examples of similar false logic in traditional adult medicine also – e.g. most thyroid lab norms are not optimal either.
Your first visit at our Integrative Medical Clinic will include a history of your current symptoms and medical problems, a brief physical exam, and then we will order lab tests appropriate for your situation. Our lab testing is more extensive than at most doctor’s offices because we test many body systems at the same time, looking for the underlying causes of your health problems, knowing how they all inter-connect. Your initial treatment protocol may include some nutritional supplements that are important for your health situation, possible dietary advice, lifestyle recommendations, educational reading recommendations, as well as conventional medical advice, when needed.
When your lab tests come back we will have a follow-up appointment where we will review them together, every test will be explained to you, and you will get copies of them all. Additional treatment recommendations based upon your lab results and symptoms will be made at that time.
As we work together as a team to optimize your health, you will be learning lots of important new information on how to prevent diseases in the future, and how to get healthy now!
