CAN INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE HELP ME?
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Let the team at STAR find the optimal fuel specific to your body’s requirements. The STAR regiment employs 30 years of medical detective experience aimed at finding and snuffing out the causes of cellular malfunction, tissue damage. The Integrative Medicine approach is based on a preventional model, to help prevent long-term dependence on costly medications and invasive surgeries.
STAR Integrative Medicine begins with an assessment phase using sophisticated testing to identify the deficiencies or toxicities causing oxidative stress. We employ three tests, two scales and two journals to study gastrointestinal function, nutritional status and food sensitivities. Patients will receive an interpretive print out that is easily understood, along with guidance and recommendations from our skilled staff. Following the assessment phase, we roll out a personal treatment program, based on the meticulous compilation of the assessment data, as well as the patient’s verbal input. In contrast to aggressive or harsh diet’s (which are often unsustainable) STAR uses well proven nutritional goal setting and coaching techniques, specific to each individual. This allows us to set the patient up for long term success, as we safely guide them along a pathway of successive treatment approximations toward desired endpoints. Our detailed guidance and coaching include: 1) a graded nutrition program with time and goal markers, 2) a systematic therapeutic exercise program, and 3) a long-term wellness program. STAR may also draw on its larger network of vetted community resources (such as physical therapy, Pilates and Tai Chi instructors, and personal trainers) to help meet each patient’s specific goals.
Once we have successfully treated the problems identified in the assessment phase and the patient is experiencing an improved sense of wellness, they enter the maintenance phase. Regular follow-ups help create routines to seal the principles of the program and keep patients at their happiest and healthiest!
