Experience Integrative Health Care   

What’s the First Visit Like? 


This is a place where regenerative medicine, chiropractic, physical and functional medicine, nutritional, ancient Chinese, bodywork and aesthetic not only meet but work side by side to help you achieve the healthiest version of YOU, inside and out!  Your treatment begins with a consultation and exam.  In this initial examination we will do vitals, a basic review of systems, an evaluation of your posture, an evaluation of your range of motion and any other functional or orthopedic exams as needed. From here, you’ll be sent for X-Rays, or an MRI if need be. Once all the evaluations and diagnostic testing has been reviewed you will have a Report of Findings with the Doctor. Occasionally this all can be accomplished in the first visit but typically this requires a follow up visit. From this, the Doctor will determine the exact diagnosis but more importantly the exact therapies through an individualized care program to get you well again.


What’s Treatment Like? 


Your Care Progresses Through Stages:  In the Acute Phase we utilize gentle Chiropractic, Supportive Therapies, Acupuncture and/or Massage Therapy to reduce your pain, swelling and spasm. You would also receive a recommendation for Regenerative Therapy if indicated. After a few weeks, you will be re-examined. Your pain level should decrease significantly within the first few weeks.

And with that progress, you will start the Rehabilitation Phase with a tailor made rehab program utilizing Physical and Functional Medicine to fully rehabilitate your body. This is one of the most important phases of care. When done correctly and intensively this phase can make your recovery more permanent instead of just band aiding your condition resulting in relapses every few months. Our goal is to get you out of pain and restore your body's function so daily physical activities are a breeze not a chore!

Experience ABC Miracles  
Discover your 'Ahh-Spot."
If your body is treated properly, your posture stays up all by itself. Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC). Real people, Real results. Real Miracles.  

Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC)

Everyone knows bones go out of place and cause body problems. Even the Medical profession has given up the fight against Chiropractic and admitted it is a major cause of body problems. However, everyone also knows that manipulation is not consistently or predictably effective. Be it by chiros, osteopaths, physical therapists or anyone else like rolfers or massage therapists, everyone knows sometimes it works, sometimes it does not and sometimes it can cause other problems.
Well, a researcher named Dr. Jutkowitz noted that bones out of place can be divided into only two meaningful categories:
1. Those bones that go out of place that the body can self-correct because it has muscles pulling in the directions needed to return them to their proper positions ( which happens to you and me and everyone else many times every day) and,
2. Those bones that go out of place in a direction the body cannot self-correct because it has no muscles pulling in the direction needed to retrieve them and return them to their proper position.
A simple and obvious thing right? Well, that simple and obvious thing that had never been noticed before and never been noted as important in your health — It has GIGANTIC implications.
Until Dr. Jutkowitz noted that some of the bones are out of place in a direction the body cannot self-correct because it has no muscles pulling in the direction needed to correct their positions, no one understood why some bones stayed out of place though the body can self-correct them because it does have muscles pulling in the directions needed to correct their positions.
You have certainly heard all the supposed reasons: imbalanced muscles, weak muscles, nerve pressure and a whole slew of reasons related to nutrition. They all sound good but working to handle any of them has never consistently or predictably led to or, leads to, correction of body structure and the many problems caused by altered body structure.
With the discovery that bones go out of place in directions the body cannot self-correct because it has no muscles that pull in the direction needed, the reason other bones the body can self-correct but stay out of place or keep going out of place has been discovered: They are part of the compensation pattern the body creates to compensate for the bones out of place that it cannot self-correct.
This is the explanation behind every Chiropractic adjustment, Osteopathic Manipulation, massage or other body treatment that does not hold or stay corrected. The body must recreate the compensation pattern and so returns those bones to their so-called “out of place” position.
This is important because treating those compensations is either a waste of time and money — because the body just resets the compensation or, MUCH WORSE, removing those compensations is why various types of Chiropractic adjustments or other manipulations cause problems when they do.
With Advanced BioStructural Correction™ Dr. West only addresses the bones out of place that the body cannot self-correct. That results in the body self-correcting the compensations it can self-correct layer by layer not just getting you better but eliminating the basic causes or the compensation patterns and returning your body or, virtually any human body — not having problems caused by cancer, infections, diabetes or something like that — to a state of wonderful health and body function that you and most people, have only dreamed possible.
If you wonder about it just look at the before and after first visit pictures. Only Advanced BioStructural Correction™ makes these claims because nothing else in healthcare accomplishes what the Advanced BioStructural Correction™ protocol accomplishes.

Medical Massage,  Acupuncture & Rehabilitation Therapy  
Specializing in Muscle Tension, Acute & Chronic Pain.

Massage Therapy 

We offer medical massage as a beneficial part of our care programs. With an array of massage techniques from our Massage Therapists, Carol Ann and Joanna we've found medical massage therapy to effectively aid physical recovery and reduce overall recovery time. 

Rehabilitation Therapy

Rehabilitation is a big part of our individualize care programs. Whether you are seeing us to avoid surgery, recover from a car accident, work related injury or sports injury rehabilitation is vital to your recovery. 

Our rehab center caters to many different therapies as well as an individualized  three phase rehab program. This program includes a full battery of exercises,  physical and functional medicine techniques. 

Rehab Phase 1 is where we utilize passive stretching to realign the adhesion's in the damaged soft tissue. You may become a bit sore during this process. This is normal.  After an average of 4 weeks, you will be re-evaluated and if you are progressing as expected, will start on Phase 2.
Rehab Phase 2 uses ball stretching and specific exercises. It also uses band strengthening to further realign the damaged soft tissue and begin to strengthen them. This, along with the Chiropractic will improve your function and posture, which will show at your re-evaluation.
Rehab Phase 3 is the final phase in Rehab and the most important. Strengthening your body with the latest in cutting edge technology called the XF Streamline Digital. This trains your body in its most strongest position and progresses your muscles to become more responsive. Injuries happen when muscles are de-conditioned, or only trained for endurance, which is what standard weight lifting does. 

Acupuncture

We offer Acupuncture from our licensed Acupuncturist, Dongkyu Song, a true Asian artist. He has healed people of ailments that would respond to no other treatments. He has effectively treated Headaches & Migraines, Chronic Pain & Joint Pain, Poor Circulation & Sinusitis.

Nutrition, Ancient Healing Technology & YourBiotics 
Ancient Healing Technology in a Capsule.

YourBiotics & Ancient Healing Technology 

In 2018 Dr. West partnered with an expert in the field of microbiology who he lovingly refers to as "the mad scientist"with plans to develop a full line of supplements that are truly... well... extraordinary utilizing ancient healing technology to provide superior nutrition. And in October of 2018 there was a major breakthrough in his research and thus YourBiotics was born. 

Eveyone has heard of “friendly bacteria” that is vital for gut health. But have you ever heard of Archaea? Turns out that we have Archaea living in and on our bodies. Archaea are one of the few microbes that flourish in an oxygen free environment such as the 30 foot long human gut and can survive some of the most extreme conditions. They aid in digestion and support other friendly bacterial growth. Remarkably, their abundance appears to remain stable over time, even following radical dietary changes and are generally passed down from mother to child. Unfortunately, mounting evidence has shown antibiotics as well as statin drugs could inhibit the growth of Archaea in the body and may even cause its extinction within the gut. So what does that mean for gut health?

Archaea, bacteria and fungi coexist and thrive in what's called a naturally biotically diverse environment. But what if antibiotics and other drugs, pesticides and modern chemicals have caused their abundance to disappear?  Stomach disturbances like gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn can all be signs of an unbalanced gut. Sugar cravings. Unintentional weight changes. Sleep disturbances or constant fatigue. Bad breath. Food allergies or sensitivities. Moodiness, Anxiety and Depression. Skin problems like eczema. Diabetes. Autoimmune disease and suppressed immunity.

Enter the breakthrough - YourBiotics does what no other probiotic on the market can claim to do, it combines this natural biotic diversity with the ancient healing technologies of the jasmonate plant hormone, bee pollen, ascorbic acid and amino acids creating a prebiotic and probiotic unlike any others on the market today! With thousands of strains of beneficial bacteria, fungi and archaea in every capsule, YourBiotics works to establish true gut health by balancing your gut pH. 

And because modern freeze drying methods harm the microbes we had to invent a a new technology to preserve their integrity and we did! This new technology allows us to freeze dry the food of plants and microbes - carbon dioxide (CO2). This freeze drying method allows the microbes in YourBiotics to be not only unharmed but alive and well fed with a food source that tends to expand their numbers within the capsule thus they get better with age! This CO2 freeze drying method is not for sale which makes YourBiotics the only known microbial product to have archaea and CO2 freeze drying.  After patenting  this process and producing it in an FDA certified facility YourBiotics became the only one of it's kind on the market. It's a prebiotic, probiotic and an all around gut healing supplement. And it's just the start of a full line of one of a kind supplements. 

Nutritional Response Testing 

Here is a description of Nutrition Response Testing by Hollistic Healing & Nutrition:

In order for you to begin the healing process we need to make sure you understand what Nutrition Response Testing™ (NRT) is right from the start. NRT is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before. Although it is very precise and scientific, if we were to analyze you using NRT without an explanation you may find it strange or mysterious. We felt similarly when we first encountered it and, therefore, have studied it extensively to see if it really worked. We are happy we did because it has helped us greatly improve our own health and with NRT, we may be able to help you improve yours. It is important for you to understand Nutrition Response Testing™ because it is the foundation upon which we base our recommendations, and if you don’t understand it you may be less likely to follow through with our advice. To put it simply, if you don’t follow through with our advice, you won’t get well and if you are not going to get well, why begin in the first place? The good news is that by using NRT, most clients experience 90% or better improvement in their overall health.

Getting Started - In medical practice there are two key parts: the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the “disease” or syndrome) and the treatment (drugs, surgery, etc.). In Nutrition Response Testing™ we do not diagnose or treat disease but we also have two parts: the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition).
The analysis is performed simply by using your body’s own muscle group in combination with acupressure points to determine where the underlying weakness is in the body and then, using the same technique we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in the analysis. 

First the Analysis - The analysis is done through testing the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system whose job is to regulate the functions of each and every organ. The acupuncture points are selected from the ancient Chinese system of acupuncture, which is thousands of years old. 

NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. Since human anatomy has not changed significantly in thousands of years, the utilization of these reflexes and specific points has become extremely useful in our practice because they are so accurate.

Regenerative Medicine &
Human Cells 
Revolutionary. Regenerative. Therapeutic. 

Regenerative Medicine & Human Cells

In conjunction with our FDA cleared lab, Predictive Biotech we offer regenerative therapy in our health center. 

Dr. Steve Sardino, MD Board Certified Anesthesiologist heads up our regenerative therapy team. He has trained extensively in regenerative theory and protocol.  

After your medical history has been reviewed and you are found eligible for regenerative therapy a consultation with diagnostic testing would be done. These steps are necessary to determine the right therapy and application for you.   

"There is much in the news about stem cells. To characterize regenerative medicine as just stem cells is not only incorrect it is not in compliance with FDA guidelines. Our lab Predictive Biotech continues to research and analyze the intricate relationship of contributing factors needed to help the body repair, replace, cushion, support, protect and function at optimal levels. It’s that thorough understanding of all the parts that make the whole that enables us to create market leading products.

The body’s regenerative process requires a dynamic environment consisting of a variety of growth factors, cytokines, scaffolding, hyaluronic acids, mesenchymal stem cells and chemokines. So in the event of injury, the body relies upon more than just a stem cell. It needs the complex rally of many cells and proteins to help start or aid the regenerative process and get it back up to speed. That’s where we come in, replenishing what the body needs, where the body needs it, to better maintain the whole."  excerpted from www.predictivebiotech.com. 
Does insurance cover Regenerative Medicine?
Unfortunately no major medical insurance plans offer coverage for regenerative therapies. Currently we only know of a few private share plans that offer coverage. We do have payment options available including medical financing.  

We offer an initial consultation at no charge to see if you are eligible for regenerative therapy. Contact us to schedule your free consultation with a brief description of what you'd like to address. Please bring relevant medical tests, charts, X-ray, MRI or CAT Scan images and reports with you to your consultation.
