Integrative Medicine – The Inner Balance Way

What do we mean by integrative health? It’s more than healthy living, and it’s more than a good diet… Our office combines holistic, functional, and traditional medicine to promote wellness, as well as prevent and treat disease. This balance of approaches to medicine creates a therapeutic and supportive healthcare experience.

The Center defines integrative medicine (IM) as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence and makes use of all appropriate therapies.


Hormone Therapy

The Holistic Approach to Restoring Hormonal Balance

As integrative and functional medicine practitioners, we offer a different approach to hormone imbalance concerns. Each patient at Inner Balance receives dedicated, expert guidance on every step of their personalized health journey to optimal vitality.

Natural Treatments for Hypothyroidism

Are you experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism – fatigue, cold intolerance, constipation, hair loss, dry skin and brittle nails – but have been told by other providers that your lab values are normal?

At Inner Balance, our approach to diagnosing and treating this common, yet complex, disease focuses on the whole person. We begin by taking a thorough, personalized medical history, and an in-depth discussion of your symptoms, followed by an analysis of your lab results. Together, we then develop a mutually agreed upon plan of care tailored to your individual needs and preferences.

A number of different thyroid medications are currently available, and we explore as many as needed to identify the ideal solution for you. Our goal is to find the medication, brand, and dosage that best and most safely manages your hypothyroidism and relieves your symptoms. These include options beyond the traditionally prescribed synthetic T4 or levothyroxine. Natural desiccated thyroid (NDT), which includes natural forms of two key thyroid hormones, T4 (levothyroxine) and T3 (triiodothyronine), has proven safe and effective for many. Although NDT has some skeptics in the thyroid world, it is our first choice at Inner Balance, as experience has shown that most patients respond better to these medications than to synthetic T4 or levothyroxine. Among the NDT drugs we use are Armour® Thyroid, Nature-Throid®, WP Thyroid® and NP Thyroid®.

Hormone Therapy for Menopause

Your body produces less estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone when you reach menopause, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms that can diminish your quality of life. Many women experience hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, poor sleep, brain fog and mood swings during the perimenopausal and menopausal years.

Hormone replacement therapy can be an extremely effective way to manage these symptoms and safeguard your well-being throughout menopause. An additional, important benefit from taking in the female hormones that your body is no longer producing is increased protection from osteoporosis, which typically begins during a woman’s 40s and 50s.

At Inner Balance, we prescribe hormone therapy to meet your specific needs, based on a thorough assessment of your medical history, severity of symptoms and your age. Our experienced staff will monitor your recommended laboratory tests, perform diagnostic studies, and regularly communicate with your specialty pharmacist. We use a variety of creams, troches and pellets proven to provide comfort and help safeguard your well-being throughout menopause.

The creams, troches and pellts are individualized and obtained from compounding pharmacies. Sometimes we use patches and capsules which are obtained from conventional pharmacies. We discuss and choose the best option for our patients.

Functional Medicine

According to the Institute for Functional Medicine, functional medicine is “personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease.” Doctors who practice functional medicine work to identify the core imbalances that lead to disease. Functional medicine focuses on prevention and tries to alleviate the root cause of a disease. It is less concerned with making a diagnosis and more concerned with correcting underlying imbalances. Having similar characteristics to integrative medicine, functional medicine treats the patient and not the disease.

Internal Medicine

Internal medicine specializes in applying scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. Internists are prepared to deal with whatever problem a patient brings to them. Internists have specific training to solve puzzling diagnostic problems. As internists, the physicians coordinate their patients’ care with other medical specialists when necessary. Most importantly, internists focus on how to prevent, treat, and diagnose diseases.

Sublingual Allergy Drops

Sublingual Immunotherapy provides treatment for a variety of environmental allergies and other chronic conditions such as asthma, sinusitis and eczema. They can be safely used for a broad range of people including infants and children and those with chronic health conditions that are not candidates for, or who prefer not to have shots.

Allergy drops help people build up a  long-term tolerance to their allergens via a liquid antigen taken under the tongue. They are safe, cost-effective and convenient because you can safely administer them yourself, at home.

Studies show that it can be as or even more effective treatment than conventional allergy shots. The antigens used are the same, but the customized dose, sublingually delivered, enables more people to benefit from the convenient treatment by avoiding shots and multiple office visits.
