Personalized, not protocols
TREATMENT OF LYME DISEASE
Treating Lyme disease has become a large part of our practice. Dr. Green and Evelyn are both Lyme literate providers. and ILADS members. Every available modality is used to treat this devastating disease. We have been very successful in helping people regain active, productive lifestyles. Newer diagnostic tools mean more accurate assessment of whether you have Lyme Disease. Lyme can mimic many conditions. If you suspect you have been bitten by a deer tick or come in contact with a pet that has contracted Lyme, seek care.
Intravenous (IV) nutrient therapy has come to the forefront as an exciting new paradigm in integrative and functional medicine, allowing us to both prevent and help treat a wide variety of conditions safely and effectively. Green Medicine offers a range of IV nutrient infusions to improve immunity, energy, support your health goals, and assist to alleviate stress. IV therapy ensures maximum absorption from vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes, allowing you to feel the biggest improvements. By administering essential vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream through IV therapy, you benefit from maximum bioavailability.
Peptides are short chain amino acids, typically less than 50-70 amino acids. Anything bigger than that is considered a protein. Currently, peptides are available that are shown to safely and effectively improve and modulate specific parts of hormone production, immune function, the sleep cycle, the production of inflammatory mediators, DNA replication, cell division and renewal, cancer cell destruction, libido and sexual arousal, tissue healing and specific biological functioning of the brain, skin, eyes, and urinary and reproductive systems.
Peptides are demonstrating to be a highly effective therapy for a wide-range of diseases and aging with little risk of side-effects. Peptide therapy can address underlying dysfunction of the immune system and cellular dysfunction. Peptides can be effective prevention and treatment for a wide-range of chronic and acute illness including Lyme disease.
ANTI-AGING AND FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE
The purpose of antiaging medicine is to ensure individuals function optimally at all ages. Preserving brain function, eyesight and mobility are most important. To maintain high levels of functioning you must look at diet, exercise, sources of inflammation and hormones. Hormone balancing is very important for those who have hormone deficiencies or excesses. Studies show that much can be done to maintain a very high quality of life even in later years. It is much easier to prevent problems than it is to overcome difficulties once they have started.
LYMPHATIC MASSAGE (MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE)
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized type of medical massage that stimulates the lymphatic flow and helps transport the lymph from swollen to non swollen areas. The lymphatic system is crucial for fluid regulation and balance, waste transportation and immunity. In contrast to more traditional massage styles, MLD utilizes a much lighter touch and makes use of skin stretching techniques in a specific pattern. This allows stimulation of the lymphatic vessels to move the fluid where it should be going. In addition, no oil or lotion is used.
BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE TREATMENT
The issue of hormone replacement has not been well managed by traditional medicine. The average physician receives very little training in hormone replacement and is basically taught, one size fits all. Usually non-bioidentical hormones are used which has led to disastrous results. Green Medicine of Wisconsin uses only bioidentical hormones to balance an individual’s levels and only after testing is performed to determine an individual’s need. Each patient’s prescription is tailor-made to their specific requirements. There is no one size fits all. By balancing hormones – all hormones not just sex hormones – optimal health can be obtained.
Proper nutrition is a foundational aspect of health and wellness. Nutritional counseling services are available as an adjunct for treating existing conditions, or stand alone to optimize current health. This tool is useful for detecting food intolerances, identifying triggers to unhealthy eating, assessing comprehensive vitamin and mineral intake, and empowering healthy eating habits. Online access is granted for each individual to complete a 7 day dietary recall. This information is used to guide personalized nutritional recommendations based upon the results, and make targeted recommendations to meet the individual’s wellness goals.
So you feel good – really? We maintain most individuals don’t realize how bad they really feel. When a proper lifestyle, diet and supplement program is taken seriously you will likely find you didn’t really feel as well as you thought. Inflammation is our worst enemy and is largely overlooked by traditional medicine. It must be addressed for optimal health to be obtained. Green Medicine maintains a wide range of hand-picked, high-quality supplements available in the office. If our diets and food choices were perfect we really wouldn’t need many supplements but most of us realize that they aren’t. Even simple supplement programs can make huge improvements in your lifestyle.
INTEGRATIVE AND HOLISTIC MEDICINE
Integrative medicine is the field of bringing multiple disciplines into play to solve and prevent health issues. Traditional western medicine relies heavily on pharmacology. 80% of all pharmaceuticals produced in the world are used in the United States. The purpose of integrative and holistic medicine is to use medicines only when they are required but also to look at other ways to maintain optimal health. It does require individuals to take responsibility for their own health.
Neurotransmitters are molecules that transmit messages within the brain and throughout the body, providing the communication to all the organs, tissues and muscles. When they are in balance, you feel good and your body works as it should. When they are out of balance, you might feel anxious, depressed, tired, irritable, or any number of other uncomfortable states. With today’s fast-paced lifestyle with its nearly constant stream of stressors can bring imbalance to our neurotransmitter levels. Other contributors can be a poor diet, environmental toxicities, drug use, and even some medications. This is why neurotransmitter testing is crucial to monitoring health.
