Using nature's power and strength to your advantage
"Let thy food be thy medicine, and thy medicine be thy food." Hippocrates, considered the father of modern medicine, recognized thousands of years ago the healing power of food. Our nutritional experts will guide you through the mass of information to tailor a nutritional program that will support you in healing and optimizing wellness. When nutrition alone is insufficient to allow for healing, nutritional and herbal supplements may be recommended by our staff.
Eastern countries such as China and India have appreciated and benefited from the powerful healing properties of herbs for thousands of years. In fact, many of today's pharmaceuticals originated from plants. For example, digitalis, used to treat congestive heart failure, initially came from the leaves of the foxglove plant. Taxol, a drug originally from the yew tree, is a promising medication for certain types of cancer. Now, the Center for Integrative Medicine harnesses that power for you by offering safe and appropriate use of herbs and nutritional supplements.
More than 50 percent of Americans regularly use one or more supplements. Among the most widely used herbs in the United States are echinacea, St. John's wort, gingko biloba, garlic, saw palmetto, ginseng, goldenseal, aloe, Siberian ginseng and valerian. Studies have shown that herbs such as echinacea and goldenseal may help boost the immune system. Research also shows that garlic may help in the prevention of heart disease and cancer, and ginkgo biloba extract may enhance memory.
