"Helping you with a natural approach to your health and aging"

In-Person Natural Functional Healthcare

In-person visits allow both physical examination and acupuncture, along with the other important aspects of our holistic approach to your care. Acupuncture treatments at our Center are used as one component of care and are given at most in-person visits. The other components of treatment are working with you to correct diet, address nutritional deficiencies, discussing healthy lifestyle modifications, and ordering or reviewing lab-work for the purpose of detecting patterns indicating underlying causes of your health concerns.


Personalized care through one-on-one video consultations to provide all the components of our Functional Healthcare except physical treatment. 

General Nutritional Support

This option provides a selection of our high-quality whole-food nutritional supplements without a consultation. This is offered as general foundational and/or immune support without further personalized guidance.
