digestive conditions

Proper digestion is a requirement for optimum health. Think about it… you really are what you eat (and what you don’t excrete). Everything you take in needs to be broken down, absorbed and either utilized or eliminated. People often think that it is normal to have indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation or heartburn, but this is not the case. All of these symptoms, as well as more serious conditions, can be treated very effectively with natural medicine.

Some of the more common digestive conditions we treat include:

Acid Reflux
Celiac Disease
Colitis
Candida
Constipation
Crohn’s Disease
Diarrhea
Gas & Bloating

Parasites

detoxification & weight loss

Invigorate your body with a detoxification program! Chemicals make their way into our bodies and bloodstream through pollution, food additives, drugs, pesticides as well as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol use. The accumulation of toxins and heavy metals in our bodies can lead to chronic disease. By removing and eliminating toxins, then replenishing your body with healthy nutrients, you can help protect yourself from disease and restore your ability to maintain optimum health.

Did you know that accumulated fat is full of toxins?

Detoxification programs naturally lead to weight loss. When your body isn’t burdened by toxins, it functions effectively and will maintain an optimal healthy weight. In addition, with our weight loss program, all other underlying causes of excess weight will be addressed. We will help you lose that excess weight for good and make the lifestyle changes necessary to maintain it.
