Consultations and Diagnostic Services
The staff at MindBody Medicine Center provides a variety of services for the diagnosis and treatment of disease, based on the principles of mindbody medicine. Most people seek alternative medical services because the standard medical treatment they are receiving is not working, or has side-effects.
Conventional medical practice is based on the “medical model,” which basically says, “It is the doctor’s job to make a diagnosis and find the right treatment, usually drugs or surgery, to cure the disease.” This implies that your health is your doctor’s responsibility and all you have to do is take the right pills.While the “medical model” may work for infections, it is not so good for chronic illnesses, like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, depression, fatigue, anxiety and most other common problems.
These conditions arise from what we do to ourselves day after day, year after year: poor nutrition, sedentary living, relentless stress and toxin accumulation. Mindbody medicine is the new model of healthcare as it returns responsibility to the patient, restores digestion, hormone balance, and nutrient deficiencies, detoxifies the body and guides the patient to a healthy lifestyle and mind style. In this way, chronic disease is usually cured or greatly improved.
Mindbody medicine is the most effective treatment for all illness, including the following common diseases:
- High blood pressure
- Angina and coronary artery disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Lyme disease
- Allergic rhinitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- and more…
TREATMENTS AND SERVICES FOCUSED ON THE BODY (and mind)
You cannot separate the mind from the body. For example, when you improve diet, restore nutrients, improve neurotransmitter status, eliminate food allergies, balance thyroid and adrenal function, you affect the mind. Patients feel more energy, less anxious and depressed and more enthusiastic about the healing process and life in general. Many patients who go to psychologists and counselors would progress much more quickly if they were to have a good health promoting medical program in the first place. But, for the sake of this presentation we are separating body and mind services.

TREATMENTS AND SERVICES FOCUSED ON THE MIND (and body)
Medical and psychological research has been telling us for decades that the mind and body are one. Now is the time for this important truth to enter the world of clinical medicine so that patients can receive treatments that are more likely to cure the disease and reduce the need for symptomatic, expensive and long term medical care.The Center will encourage patients to uncover and change the psychological, or stress related factors in the development of disease using a variety of methods, including the following:
