Announcements and News
Come to our Grand Opening in our new location in Cottonwood!
When I first moved here to the Verde Valley, I told myself that one day I would develop a Lifestyle Medicine Program, teaching the fundamentals of
aging gracefully. Recently, my yoga teacher (Jennifer Richards, owner of Sedona Hot Yoga) offered me the space, that at one time was the old Allstate
building, next to her Cottonwood studio . I knew that it would be the perfect location to launch this program. Being next to a yoga studio and
Wholesome Kitchen is going to be a great for us and the Cottonwood communitiy as a whole.
Breakthrough Medicine offering primary care and integrative medicine
The focus of Integrative Medicine is to restore and maintain health and wellness across a person’s lifespan by understanding
the patient’s unique history while addressing the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental
influences that affect health.
Through personalizing care, integrative medicine goes beyond the treatment of
symptoms to address all the causes of an illness. Creating an integrative treatment may involve taking a longer history
which may begin at conception and through present time and then coming up with strategies that may involve tradition therapies
(such as medications) and or complimentary alternative therapies. The focus on longevity is more in line with preventative
medicine which helps the person age gracefully. A typical first visit may last 1-2 hours and follow up visit may last 30
– 60 minutes because treating the whole person takes time to learn what has happen in his or her life. Treatment plans
often include components of homework, reading, dietary changes, stress management, exercise, hydrotherapy, homeopathy,
flower essences, essential oils, herbal tinctures, nutritional supplementation, and possibly personalized medication.
