Clinical Grade Supplements
At Wellness Doctor, our goal with each patient is to treat the whole body; not just the symptoms. While many health care professionals prescribe pills to treat their patients’ ailments, we rely on individualized nutritional plans, therapeutic exercise regimens, and/or high quality supplements.
Whether treating an elite athlete, newly diagnosed Celiac patient, or somebody simply seeking natural weight loss; high quality supplements can play an important role in helping people meet their health goals. The experienced team at Wellness Doctor has had great success in treating conditions such as chronic migraines, IBS, skin issues, depression, anxiety, obesity, neurological symptoms, insomnia, chronic fatigue and many others, through simple dietary and/or nutritional therapies.
Why spend your money on pricey prescription pills that come with a laundry list of side effects (and often only help to cover up your symptoms) when you can naturally and permanently treat those same conditions? Although we can order and prescribe any single clinical-grade supplement that may be beneficial or requested by the patient, we specialize in nutraceuticals and programs that address Digestive health, Cardiovascular health, Sports Performance, and supplements for General Wellness.
Intestinal Health, Celiac, IBD and IBS in Bend and Central Oregon
It is estimated that over 25% of the US population suffers from some form of IBS. Until those with "IBS" are truly diagnosed with what the true cause is, most will only deal with worsening symptoms throughout their life. Dysbiosis, Candida, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth ( SIBO ), IBD, gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease can be easily diagnosed and treated and are typically the "root causes" of IBS.
Did You Know
Celiac Disease is now considered the most common and underdiagnosed life-long disease in our country. With such a need for awareness in this area, the team at Wellness Doctor spend a great amount of time and effort educating the public and other healthcare practitioners of the significance of gluten related disorders. When it comes to educating the public, it is vital to understand the importance of avoiding gluten (found in wheat, barely, and rye) in those diagnosed as well as the crucial health benefits that come with testing each patient who displays a suspected sensitivity.
While a gluten-free diet is key in extinguishing the internal fire often caused by a gluten-related disorder, this is only the first step when it comes to healing the body. The gluten-free diet will help to put out that internal fire, but additional supplementation is required to actually heal the tissues and organs that have been damaged by ongoing gluten exposure.
We offer specialty lab testing in the areas of Serum, Breath, Urine or Stool testing looking at digestion, absorption, gut flora, metabolism, etc., Hormone and Thyroid testing, as well as Celiac and Food & Environmental Sensitivity testing. Figuring out what is causing poor health is essential for prescribing a specific diet and supplement regimen.
Clinical Weight Management in Bend and Central Oregon
Our ongoing success with weight management and overall health improvement in patients is not achieved by putting someone on a temporary "diet" or weight loss plan. Instead, we work to educate patients (and the general public) on the Lifestyle Management components of exercise and movement, stress management, and balanced nutrition.
In an effort to help with the transition to a more balanced and nutritious diet, we often encourage many who partake in our Weight and Lifestyle Management programs to include specific meal replacements and nutritional components in their daily regimens. These supplements can help support a healthy metabolism, balance blood sugar and insulin levels, decrease cravings, and optimize the body’s ability to utilize fatty acids.
As mentioned, a transition to a healthy lifestyle is not achieved by only changing one aspect of one’s life; but through changing various daily habits and activities. Supplements play a vital role in weight reduction and overall health improvements but will have little or no effect when applied without the necessary lifestyle activities of balanced nutrition, exercise/movement, and stress management. There is no magic pill or formula for optimal health; however when applied as a part of a balanced program supplements can help to add years to your life and life to your years!
With our children becoming more sedentary and eating more refined processed foods, the prevalence of obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and a plethora of mood and behavior disorders are on the rise. Considering the lifestyles of so many of our youth, it's no wonder that for the first time in history the generation born today has a shorter life expectancy than the generation before it (as stated in the New England Journal of Medicine).
Introducing a healthy lifestyle at an early age is crucial in helping our youth live long, fulfilling, productive lives. By setting an example and educating our children on the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise, we can empower our children to live a balanced healthy life. In addition to promoting a healthy diet and physical activity, we can further help our kids to grow and thrive by filling in the nutritional gaps with a good multivitamin, essential fatty acids, and vitamin D3 supplementation.
