Treatments and Therapies
As each patient is unique, with unique health concerns stemming from unique causes, every patient is evaluated and presented with a personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan may be simple or complex, as necessary to achieve their health goals. Essential to every treatment plan is patient education, explaining what is going on inside their body, and teaching patients how to best support themselves through their healing process. Though not exclusive, the following are a list of therapeutics available and integrated into treatment plans as necessary.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy uses hormones found naturally in the human body to return the body to a more healthy and balanced state. Bio-Identical hormones are derived from natural plant compounds and developed to match the structure and function of the hormones produced within the human body. They are identical to endogenous (self-made) human hormones, so the body is able to metabolize and process them normally, thus minimizing side effects.
Hormones are the messengers of the body, helping your body’s various parts communicate with each other. They are essential to life, and maintaining healthy hormone balance is a key to optimal wellness in both men and women.
At Healthy By Nature, we formulate an individualized plan which may include Bio-Identical Hormones that are tailored specifically to your needs. The levels used are dependent upon individual hormone needs as assessed by comprehensive laboratory analysis. Hormones assessed may include sex hormones (Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, and various metabolites), thyroid hormones, and adrenal hormones. Lab analysis may include blood, saliva, or urine assessment depending on specific individual needs.
Because hormones have so many functions in the body, imbalances can lead to a host of health complaints. Though this list is not exclusive, some common symptoms of hormone imbalances include:
– Insomnia (difficulty with sleep)
– Night sweats
– Hot flashes
– Weight Gain
– Irregular menstruation
– Andropause (hormonal decline accompanying aging in men)
Many traditional cultures use plants as their primary medicine. Most pharmaceutical drugs are actually derived from plants, and are isolates of what is found to be pharmacologically active in the plant. However, there are many beneficial aspects to the plants other than the pharmacologically active components which are extracted for synthesis of drugs. There is a synergistic effect of taking a plant or herb in its entirety, generating benefits beyond just the chemical effect. In essence, the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Botanical medicine is an art and science, working gently with the body to engender beneficial health effects. Botanicals are used with some patients, in various forms, including supplements, herbal tinctures, and teas, and are prescribed as customized formulas as applicable.
This powerful system of medicine is over 200 years old and is widely used in Europe. Symptoms are seen as the body’s immune system at work and therefore communicate deeper problems. Instead of suppressing the symptoms with drugs, homeopathic medicines increase the symptoms to assist the body’s immune system in eliminating the problem. After an initial period of worsened symptoms, the disease and symptoms resolve. Reoccurrence of the disease is rare since the body has learned naturally to rid itself of the disease.

HcG Medical Weight Loss Program
This medically supervised weight loss program is a natural and effective way to attain dramatic and lasting weight loss.
HcG is a natural hormone that stimulates the hypothalamus of the brain. The hypothalamus regulates the rate at which we burn our own fat reserves. Chronic stress, hormone imbalances, and improper diet are all known to inhibit the function of the hypothalamus. HcG is one of the few things known to turn this mechanism on. Many patients who come to Healthy By Nature for weight loss are fairly healthy people, who despite eating well and exercising, still struggle with excess weight.
With the HCG Program, most patients lose about a pound a day, and feel great while doing it. The program involves a set diet while administering HcG every day. You also receive a free weekly “B Skinny” shot to further boost metabolism. We check in with you once a week to assess your progress, answer questions and modify as appropriate.
We provide a 3 week and 6 week program which is determined by how much weight you need to lose. If there is a lot of weight loss needed, repeated “rounds” can be done after a few weeks.
