what is good nutritional health?
Sometimes when you think you eat right, you exercise enough … things still feel “off.” Sometimes your body needs a little help and the only way to find that out that is to get some tests done. At the Osteopathic Center, we can perform specific testing to identify your individual deficiencies and health challenges.
how stem cell therapy works
Medical technology and our understanding of the human body has advanced greatly in the last couple of decades. Many of the advancements you heard about years ago that seemed like science fiction are now becoming widely available after extensive research, development, and medical trials. Stem cell therapy is one of the many forms of alternative medicine that give you solid options beyond more traditional surgeries and procedures. Stem cell therapy can be found in our Miami clinic.
what is cosmetic therapy?
Your face is what you present to the world. If you are uncomfortable with your appearance, it can negatively impact your ability to live the life that you want. In trying to at least look younger, if not actually feel younger, people will cake on makeup — which is pretty apparent — or inject literal toxins into their face. We’ve all heard the Botox® jokes about paralyzed face muscles. The natural solution is to visit the Osteopathic Center in Miami. We use natural, high quality injections. Many are derived from your own body’s resources like stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP).
which alternative medicine is best?
Many people today are in search of alternative medicine to take the place of the more traditional healthcare model. More and more people are looking for ways to avoid expensive surgeries, painful recovery times, and costly drugs that come with unwanted side effects. Many people simply want more holistic treatment options.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO HEALTH
In the 1800s, there was a landmark battle in medicine. Louis Pasteur put forth the “germ theory.” But some of his contemporaries said he had it wrong, that the “inner terrain” was the more important thing. In other words, germs come and go; if your inner body is strong and healthy, germs will not harm you. Thus we should focus on creating health, not killing germs. Pasteur is said to have eventually soured on the germ theory — near the end of his life he reportedly said the inner terrain guys had gotten it right.
But Pasteur was a showman and had won the marketing battles of his day. His legacy is enormous. Pasteurization bears his name. He pioneered vaccination. Today, most of Western medicine is still operating on the Pasteur paradigm, still more focused on fighting germs rather than strengthening the immune system and other parts of the body’s machinery.
You might say that the inner terrain paradigm is carried on today in what is called “alternative medicine.” Let’s take a quick look at a few of the methods used by alt med doctors to encourage health:
Most people know that ultraviolet light is great at killing a wide range of microbes on a surface, but did you know that it can also be used as an alternative medicine to kill bacteria and viruses in your blood? It sounds a bit sci-fi, but it is really pretty basic technology. Your blood can be exposed to ultraviolet light in order to kill many forms of microbes. How is it done? We pull out a predetermined quantity of your blood and put it through a sterile, closed loop machine that irradiates your blood with ultraviolet light and then returns the blood back to your veins. Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) appointments generally take between 45 and 90 minutes.
Integrative Medicine and Health
As the American healthcare system grows progressively stressed, truly patient-centered care becomes increasingly difficult to find. More people than ever before are looking for alternatives to the conventional healthcare model. The Osteopathic Center offers an integrated solution to a system that is been lacking in so many aspects. The integrative approach in medicine at the Osteopathic Center focuses on caring for the whole human being—body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Goddard has created a desirable and logical medical option for many people seeking to find the root cause of their disease and apply natural solutions.
