Improving Quality of Life

Our experienced staff looks forward to having the opportunity to partner with you on your road to success.

Eating less and exercising more DO NOT always lead to weight loss. Unlike many health care professionals, we understand that obtaining weight and health goals may not be your fault.

A simple 10-minute breath test (99% accurate) allows us to determine exactly how many calories you burn in a day. Patients and scheduled walk-ins can make appointments.

Medical and nutritional therapies provided at the Center for Balanced Health are customized to target the causes of specific health conditions and to improve quality of life.

To help treat weight loss, we use metabolic testing and to help treat immune disorders, we use intravenous vitamins and minerals.

Many of the medical conditions we treat have one common denominator, insulin. Insulin plays several roles in the body. This underscores its role in weight and health. Elevated levels of insulin can be the underlying cause of resistant weight loss, diabetes, unstable blood sugar, hypoglycemia, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, increased blood pressure, hormonal imbalance, PCOS and certain cancers.

Because of this, we use a controlled carbohydrate plan as the foundation of our medical practice. In addition to the health benefits, people will lose weight, regulate blood sugar, stabilize moods, control appetite and most importantly improve quality of life.

Your healthcare at our medical practice will be a partnership, which will take guidance on our part, and effort on yours. We will work with you to promote your own optimum health. Investing in your health & developing a healthy lifestyle, is the best investment you will ever make.

Valerie Voice: For the Heath of it

The King of Ketosis - Feb 23
Ketosis simply means burning fat. When your body burns fat it helps correct metabolic health and weight issues. If you are not healthy or cannot seem to lose weight, Make a change in your way of eating.

At a minimum, Dr. Atkins should be known as the "King of Ketosis". It's been awhile since I worked with Dr. Atkins and embarked on my own high fat, low carb journey. Back then, although we cited Keckwick and Pawan and a few others, we had NO "current" research. We barely even understood what happened biochemically in the body but we did know that our patients reaped the benefits much before the sea of results with today's "current" research and monumental low carb following.
