Please refer to the Wellness Center and the New Patient page for information about the nature of our services. Therapies might include nutritional therapies, lifestyle improvement, detoxification, and innovative medical therapies commonly referred to as holistic,  complementary, alternative, functional or integrative medicine. Some treatments may be controversial, considered useful by a minority of physicians, nurse practitioners  or other health professionals. Treatments may not be approved by the Food and Drug Administration for their intended use and may be an “off-label” use. While there is clinical evidence regarding these treatments, they may be taught at integrative medical seminars and constitute clinically useful therapy, they may not be considered sufficiently proven by clinical controlled trials for widespread acceptance by the medical community.
