Is your body at peak performance? Our custom-tailored nutritional plans will bring your body back to balance with a detailed, totally personalized plan of action.  

At the Osteopathic Center, we believe in treating the body as a whole entity. Our integrative approach focuses on the discovery of the root (the underlying cause) of your ailment and how it affects your entire body, both internally and externally. By following our custom-tailored health program with a “whole-body” approach, we are able to treat many illnesses.

Our Program will:

  1. Assess your body’s overall health condition
  2. Provide thorough and in-depth testing and analysis 
  3. Create a personalized health plan of action
  4. Follow up with testing and measurable progress

One of the first steps taken in the path to nutritional health is a thorough evaluation of the body’s current condition to identify any negative changes in one part of the body, and the possible resulting impairment in the functioning of supporting organs. This is assessed through specialized, in-depth blood and urine testing to identify toxicities, food sensitivities, food allergies, bacterial and fungal dysbiosis, deficiencies in micronutrients, and other vital measurements that can ultimately lead to imbalances throughout the body’s systems. We utilize the most advanced and accurate testing in the industry: predominately Genova Diagnostics, Spectracell, and Doctor’s Data.

Once testing is done, we create a health plan individually tailored to your needs, consisting of:  

  • Personalized treatments in office
  • Lifestyle change advisories
  • Dietary advice
  • Cleanses
  • Prescribed custom programs of oral or IV vitamins/supplements to address your specific needs.

We offer only high quality, minimally processed, and mostly organic supplements including Metagenics, Biotics, and Standard Process, among others. 

How will I know it’s working?

Besides feeling great and noticing positive changes in your overall energy and wellbeing, chronic conditions will start improving and pain will be gradually diminished. Gastric problems like stomach ulcers, gastritis, acid reflux, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) will show drastic improvement and high cure rates. We use rigorous and continuous measurable testing, showing evidence of progress and marked improvement in your overall health. Results you can not only feel, but can quantify!

Advanced testing

Here at the Osteopathic Center, we provide a diverse range of specialized tests to give you a complete diagnosis prior to the recommendation of any treatment of therapy. Discover all the variables that are affecting your weight-loss, performance, and overall health.

Is your body able to detoxify? Get tested and find out your body’s capacity to purge and eliminate toxins. Identify once and for all what triggers your allergic reactions, and which substances that may behave like contaminants to your system. We proudly offer the Genova NutrEval FMV Urine Elements test to measure for 15 separate nutrient elements and the levels of 20 toxic heavy metals.

Not losing weight? Our metabolic test checks the status of your metabolism, and can determine the root cause of your weight-loss plateau. You might feel perfectly healthy today, but it’s possible you could be predisposed to conditions that can greatly affect your health and livelihood in the near future. Metabolic testing eliminates doubt surrounding the food you eat, and gets to the bottom of your cravings, mood swings, and energy fluctuations.

Get tested for dysbiosis (abnormal bacterial/fungus growth) and remove bad bacteria, yeast, and parasites from your body. If you suffer from constant gas, bloating, fat malabsorption, diarrhea, or constipation (and possibly many of these symptoms together), you could be damaging the lining of the small intestine and preventing your body from properly absorbing essential nutrients. 

Did you know, for example, that the recognized risk factors for osteoarthritis include diabetes and gut dysbiosis?* Injections alone may not be the answer to a great long-term solution. Treating your intestinal microbiome could be the difference whether injections work. We always have to think of what caused the problem initially, what is contributing to the problem, and what else may be going on besides what is obvious.

Let us customize a personalized plan to help you achieve your wellness goals. Schedule a consultation today. Transform your life and become a healthier you!
