General Health

We approach general health from an integrated medicine perspective

According to the World Health Organization, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”¹ Our integrated medicine center near Milwaukee supports this definition of general health by providing a unique type of care that combines conventional and complementary medicine to treat the whole person.

Our entire team provides treatment and care for men, women and children. We address chronic illness, weight management and nutrition, allergies, fatigue and more.

We investigate and treat chronic illness to improve general health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that about half of all adults have a chronic illness. Furthermore, they say that chronic illnesses “…are among the most common, costly and preventable of all problems.” ² Our team treats general health problems with which many people and doctors are familiar, such as arthritis, but we also diagnose problems that conventional health care providers often dismiss. For example, our team investigates issues such as hormones, genetics, Lyme disease and toxic mold to find the true source of your chronic illness.

Weight management and nutrition

Getting to and maintaining a healthy weight is important for general health in adults and children. When you are overweight or obese, you are at risk for serious health issues such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. If you are underweight or have an eating issue, this can also be detrimental.

Our team provides weight loss programs and help with eating issues. We also believe that your metabolic health and nutrition is a very important part of general health. Our integrated medicine center near Milwaukee provides several treatments that address this issue, including detoxification and IV nutritional therapy.

Allergy diagnosis and treatment

About 20% of the population suffers from allergies but only about 3% are currently receiving immunotherapy, the treatment that would help prevent their symptoms and improve their general health. We treat many allergies with sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops.

Instead of injections, the patient places the drops under the tongue. It’s safe, convenient and effective. We also diagnose food allergies by performing the IGG blood test, as well as oral challenge testing and the use of a rotation/elimination diet.

Fatigue is an often overlooked and under-treated cause of general health issues

Our integrated health team treats fatigue as more than a symptom—we also treat it as a cause of general health issues that are affecting your quality of life. Our team takes problems such as chronic fatigue syndrome seriously, a syndrome that conventional medicine may dismiss. We also perform adrenal fatigue testing, thyroid tests and more.

From infancy to old age, our integrated medicine center near Milwaukee is here to provide a diagnosis, offer an all-important second opinion, and provide unprecedented integrated health care. Contact us if you would like to learn more about better general health for you and your family.
