Our Focus is Integrated Care.
Our Goal is to Restore Your Health.
Your health is a result of the experiences, exposures and lifestyle habits that you have acquired during your life.
Your metabolism, a dynamic balance of chemistry, manages those experiences.
Very often these experiences cause a break down in our metabolism and our health begins to suffer. For example, you may feel tired or anxious, develop sleeping difficulties, gain weight or increase your risk for disease.
Our goal is to identify the areas of breakdown of the normal metabolic process and restore them to full functioning through supplying the
missing nutrient or hormone, or by encouraging the release of personal stress, realigning the body through weight loss, readjusting the immune
system, and working to prevent future recurrences of the problem. This process takes time and careful study.
At the LaValle Metabolic Institute, board certified physicians work in the field of Integrated Care to address the full spectrum of health care.
Integrated Care simply means that we take the best of traditional medicine (medication, surgery, testing modalities) and combine it with other synergistic modalities such as nutritional therapy, nutritional supplements, lifestyle habits, stress management, exercise, meditation, and other forms of care such as chiropractic and acupuncture care, to arrive at a solution that corrects the cause of patient’s symptoms. Easing symptoms is important for improving quality of life but in order to facilitate true health and longevity we focus on addressing the CAUSE of illness. It’s not good enough to simply get a patients cholesterol into the “normal range”, we work to identify why the cholesterol was high in the first place and correct the physiology behind the number. We want to “optimize” your health and not just allow you to “get by”.
The goal in integrated care is to restore health.
The traditional practice of medicine has accomplished some amazing feats and we fully endorse and employ these practices to ensure our patients best health. But we blend that scientific approach with the scientific use of natural elements, backed by clinical research and proven with clinical trials. The result is a true pursuit of health and optimal living.
Integrative care is the pursuit of optimal health, of a dynamic body with excellent vitality, boundless energy, restful sleep, sharp mind, disease resistance, greater quality of life with less pain, greater movement, low blood pressure and heart rates, and excellent lab numbers that reflect a body in harmony with it’s environment. This is our quest!
