Check out our Introduction to Anodyne video (filmed primarily at our St. George Clinic):
Our acupuncture treatments and medical services provide the highest level of care in the industry. They improve your potential for healing and well-being in all dimensions of life. Acupuncture, Trigger Point Therapy, Chinese Medical Diagnosis, Herbal Medicine, Nutritional Supplementation, Hormone Solutions and more may be part of your program to help you reach a state of optimized living.
The mission at Anodyne is to find and correct the underlying cause of your health conditions. We “test, not guess” with saliva hormonal testing, nutritional and food testing. We then design your program based on these test results and those of your Evoke brain scan, digestive stool analysis and your Chinese Medical Diagnosis. Brain health, hormonal balance, detoxification, gut health, nutrition and fitness are the 5 pillars of health that your program is built around.
The Five Pillars of Health
1. Digestive Health & Detox
Chronic disease and inflammatory processes can be reversed by fixing your bodies bacterial diversity. Research is now pointing towards healthy microbiota for reversal of weight gain, hormonal dysregulation, and fatigue. Our 2 step process looks to first Remove what’s not needed and Replace it with what is. Many of your symptoms will go away after you properly detoxify your body and have healed your digestive system. Our comprehensive stool analysis will allow us to guide you in this process.
Each of us are unique individuals and therefore require unique nutrition. With our micro-nutrient and food sensitivity testing we can determine what foods best serve you in your quest for health. Nutritional imbalances are rampant in American society as we are a nation that is over fed and under-nourished. Even though we have followed the food pyramid we are still getting sicker and fatter every year.
Your body makes hundreds of hormones and in order for it to function properly you’ve got to have them all working together. You’ve got stress hormones from your adrenal glands, metabolism hormones from your thyroid, and sex hormones from the reproductive organs. Each one of these hormones plays a key role in allowing your body to stay healthy. And one of the first hormones that we want to look at is called cortisol. Cortisol is your stress hormone that is produced by your adrenal glands. Most Americans have imbalances in cortisol levels because of the high levels of stress. Cortisol causes your body to put on lower belly fat and it also can be a contributing factor to being overweight.
“We can’t exercise for you” is the name of our fitness and exercise class. We believe that exercise is medicine and therefore should
be dosed according to your hormone levels and physical abilities. Establishing goals and working towards more physical activity and better exercise is what our program is designed to accomplish. Getting the right exercises will allow you to sleep better, lose belly fat and have greater levels of self confidence.
5. Brain Health
Your brain health is the fifth pillar of health that we find absolutely critical in designing a lifestyle for optimal health. We look at how your brain is functioning from a cognitive perspective and also look at neurotransmitter formation from the bacteria in your digestive tract. We train you on how to keep your brain calm even during times of stress with meditation and Qi gong exercises. We also find it imperative to stay positive and to see the amazing gifts that you have in your life.
We believe that knowledge is power. The more you know, the better you can be and live. Our fun and informative individual or group classes are on various subjects including adrenal fatigue, gastro-intestinal dysfunction, brain health, meditation and emotional well-being. We also discuss female/male hormone imbalance, metabolism enhancement, and exercise theory.
We help you enhance your health through lifestyle training, functional wellness and natural treatments. Making correct choices for your body is the most essential element in recovering from hormonal dysfunction, toxicity, being overweight, gastrointestinal disorders and a myriad of health problems. Our wellness approach targets your health needs that allow you to perform at an optimal level for life.
