There are many different types of treatments & therapies that alternative & integrative doctors use in their practice in order to generate a more natural healing of the body. Colon Hydro therapy, intravenous vitamin & mineral therapy, infra-red saunas, bioresonance, hyperbaric chambers, heavy metal toxicity, and Ozone therapy just to name a few. Depending on your diagnosis, an alternative doctor or practitioner may incorporate many different treatment plans in their healing approach for you. Although the majority of alternative medicines and therapies have not been approved by the FDA, we have found that many conventional doctors do believe that some forms of alternative medicine can be beneficial when undergoing conventional treatment.

In today's world, our bodies are challenged to eliminate toxins that can sabotage our health. Drugs, heavy metals, pesticides, industrial chemicals, food additives, pollution and mineral depletion of our soil all contribute to stress in our bodies. Detoxification of your system will decrease the total toxic load, and will improve your immune mechanism and the healing properties of the body.
