NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING Many qualifying Medical Cannabis patients have gastrointestinal complications due to their various conditions. Knowing what food is best for your specific body type and health concern can often been a difficult task. We simplify this entire process by assigning you a registered Dietitian who will walk you through your own personalized treatment plan including shopping do’s and don’t’s, cooking tips and more. Your Dietitian will closely coordinate with you and your physician in order to help regulate your metabolism, energy levels and maximize healing potential throughout your entire treatment plan with the Healing Clinic. AYURVEDIC HEALING AND TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE (TCM) The World Health organization estimates that nearly 70% of the world uses traditional medicine and herbal therapies. Chinese Medicine has been practiced for more than 2,000 years while Ayurveda was founded more than 5,000 years ago. Despite their age and advancements in medical technology, many people report profound healing experiences utilizing these ancient traditional systems of balance and well being. Our practitioners of Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine are here to customize Integrative therapies such as acupuncture, herbalism and Panchakarma cleanings to assist in your healing and treatment process. IV NUTRIENT THERAPY Our Program of Integrative Medicine is excited to offer Intravenous Vitamin Therapy. Intravenous Vitamin therapy (IVT) is administered by directly introducing vitamin rich cocktails directly into the bloodstream which then can directly penetrate into the cells that need it. IVT is not as new as you’d think, in fact it been practiced since the early 1930’s. Vitamins, nutrients and minerals are essential to maintain optimal health. Many people believe that we receive everything that we need through the food that we eat. In order for nutrients to be absorbed into the by the body they must first surpass the stomach, liver and intestines. After the extensive digestive process we only absorb about 8% of the nutrients that we receive from food. People with slow and sluggish digestive systems may absorb even less than the estimated amount of 8%. To add to the issue patients with compromised immune systems may need even more than the maximum nutrients that any one food can provide. IVT is beneficial since this bypasses the typical digestion process providing quick and direct therapy. BODY THERAPY Pain plays a huge role in our ability to live a fulfilled life because it can often impair ones ability to compete simple tasks and activities. Many Medical Cannabis patients experience some sort of chronic pain and while there are medications available, many of them can also impact your ability to function properly throughout the day. Massage and Physical Therapy can provide pain relief, stress reduction and improve mobility without some of the harsh side effects of medication. According to the Mayo Clinic some of the conditions that have shown improvement include: - Digestive disorders - Anxiety - Fibromyalgia - Headaches - Insomnia related to stress - Myofascial pain syndrome - Paresthesias and nerve pain - Soft tissue strains or injuries - Sports injuries - Temporomandibular joint pain
