Aging Doesn’t Have to be Difficult

Learn from Wildwood Integrative Healthcare

Our bodies are remarkable works of nature! Think about the last time you cut yourself: a small cut healed in only a few short days without intervention from you. How did that happen?

In youth, the body grows and repairs effortlessly. It bounces back from insult and overuse quickly. There is energy to spare. As we age, our systems become slow to recover. A twisted ankle is painful for months or years, knees and backs ache with both use and rest, chronic pain slips in. Digestion can become compromised. There can be headaches, fatigue and brain fog. A diagnosis of disease can be devastating. Aging is difficult.

But what if there was a different way?
As a nurse practitioner I was trained in health promotion and disease prevention. I opened Wildwood Integrative Healthcare to be able to treat my patients like I would want to be treated – gently. I focus my care on maximizing the body’s ability to heal itself by correcting nutritional deficiencies, balancing hormones and helping patients implement positive lifestyle changes.

I spend time with each of my patients – getting to know them and together we form a plan for healing. There is no reason we can’t enjoy good health as we age.

I offer the following therapies to help you achieve vibrant health:

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement addresses imbalances and deficiencies in estrogen, progesterone and testosterone effective in treating symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, migraines, low libido, lack of energy and loss of muscle tone.

Intravenous Nutrient Therapy combines vitamins, minerals and other nutrients for delivery directly into the bloodstream. Nutrient depletions can be caused by poor diet, consumption of excessive amount of calories, sugar or alcohol, smok- Aging Doesn’t Have to be Difficult BY PATRICIA BAUER, NP-C ing, stress, etc. IV infusions can quickly rectify imbalances.

Ozone Therapy corrects oxidant stress that accompanies chronic disease. Ozone is a form of oxygen that stimulates immune cells to produce infection-killing hormones. Ozone therapies are safe and effective with no side effects. Ozone can be administered topically, into joints and intravenously.

Prolozone Therapy relieves chronic pain in muscles and joints. It is an injection of a local anesthetic followed by ozone. The combination relieves pain and inflammation, while promoting the body’s ability to heal. Prolozone injections treat joint pain (knee, hip, shoulder…), osteoarthritis, neck and back pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica and sports-related injuries.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation is a safe, natural therapy that utilizes the antibacterial properties of light to destroy pathogens in the blood. Fragments of the disabled infecting agents create a personalized vaccine- like reaction once returned to the patient’s bloodstream, heightening the body’s immune response.

HOCATT, our new multi-modality ozone and infrared sauna, is arriving October 2017. Call for more information and special pricing.
