Treatment and Wellness Center Philosophy
At Bliss Wellness Center, we offer natural medicine consultations and therapies, based on Functional Medicine and Chinese Medicine with Naturopathic principles. We help people suffering from pain, hormone and weight issues, autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, fatigue, anxiety, depression, stress and more.
We offer a comprehensive health and wellness approach, we call it the 360 degree medical model. There’s no fences in your body, so when one system or part goes down, other areas are impacted or have to pick up the slack. We look at lab tests, your symptoms, lifestyle assessments, nutrition, stress and anxiety levels and a food journal. Once we gather all your information, we set up a wellness program for you.
We’ve found that sometimes people are just missing a few aspects of care, that when addressed, leads to the sought-after results. So we address it all, in a well-timed out plan for your body, to get you the results you want.
Some Modalities Used for Your Care
Chinese Medicine (aka Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM)
Chinese Medicine is an effective, centuries-old, proven medical system that utilizes therapies such as Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage/bodywork, Dietary Therapy and Cupping.
The principles of Chinese Medicine show us the importance of the unity of the body and mind and adds to the Western understanding of physiology. Acupuncture or Acupressure, can unify and harmonize the imbalances present in disease conditions, which, if left untreated, can result in illness.
Important to physical wellness are proper exercise, pure water, a healthy diet, sufficient sleep and stress management. When the body is out of balance, it can be gently corrected through the usage of nutrition, acupuncture, cupping or herbal and holistic medicine. If you are suffering with physical problems, orthopedic tests may be administered at your appointment to assess the degree of dysfunction.
The cornerstone of natural health is that food is the best holistic medicine. Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with food and nutritional supplements than they can by other means, and with fewer complications and side effects. We use dietetics, periodic fasting, and herbal/nutritional supplementation in this practice.
Genetic nutrition, or Nutrigenomics, is an up-and-coming field of science that explains the nutrient-gene interaction and provides information related to risk as well as information about the impact of lifestyle and nutrition. Now we can find out what you need to eat and how you need to exercise in order to best maintain your health and fitness – for your DNA.
Many plant substances are powerful medicines. Where chemically derived drugs may only address a single problem, botanical medicines are able to address a variety of problems simultaneously. Their organic nature makes botanicals compatible with the body’s own chemistry; hence, they can be gently effective with few, if any, toxic side effects.
Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness. Coaching, nutritional balancing, stress management, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), biofeedback and other therapies are used to help people heal on the psychological level
