These are exactly the same things that I want for you also. This is why I got into medicine in the first place. It was to help people to achieve their best self. Unfortunately way too many people take their health for granted, assuming that it will always be with them until the day that God comes knocking on the door. Unfortunately, rarely is this the case. Many, if not all, of us at some point in our life will experience a health crisis. It can be as simple as a sprained ankle to something as complicated as cancer. The good news is that there are steps that we can take to lessen our chances of having a more serious and complicated health crisis.
Below are 4 areas of your health that I look for and test and treat on each patient to identify and correct the causes of a health care crisis.
- Cellular Inflammation – When your body is inflamed, it is impossible for your cells and organs to function properly. The longer the inflammation stays, the more damage that occurs to your organs, and eventually this will lead to dysfunction and ultimately symptoms. One simple blood test (called CRP – C-reactive protein) can alert you to your generalized inflammation status. At Stanly Wellness Center, we perform a non-invasive urine test that can also show you your levels of inflammation.
- Deficiencies – If your diet is lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc. this also makes it impossible for your cells and your organs to function optimally. Once again you will eventually experience symptoms as your body slowly shuts down over time. This is easily correctable by simply making changes to your diet or supplementing with high quality, bio-absorbable nutrients from whole food sources. This does not include those cheap vitamins that you are buying from large box stores or inexpensive online retailers. I once heard a quote that said, “I am too poor to buy cheap.” When you put inferior products into your body, you get inferior results. At Stanly Wellness Center we only provide high quality, food grade, bio-absorbable supplements that the body can use and thrive on.
- Toxins – A day does not go by that I do not hear about how toxins are affecting the health of our community. Right now in Charlotte, Duke Energy is paying out claims due to their coal ash situation. You also may have heard of Flint, Michigan’s water and health crisis. The reality is that our world is a toxic world. Toxins surround us on a daily basis from the water that we drink and the food that we eat, to the air that we breathe, the chemicals that we use in our home to clean and the poisons that we put on our skin from soaps, shampoos, make-ups, lotions, etc. The simple fact here is that if your body is not detoxing properly at the cellular level, you will eventually get sick as your DNA becomes damaged and your cells turn cancerous working against you instead of for you. Once again, at Stanly Wellness Center we perform a simple non-invasive Visual Acuity Sensitivity test and urine test to determine your body’s toxic load. We then provide the correct treatment to allow your body to safely eliminate those toxins.
- Nerve Stress – We all know that stress, especially prolonged stress can wreak havoc on our body. Whether it is emotional stress (loss of job, divorce, death in family, etc.), chemical stress (prescription drugs, chemotherapy, pesticides, etc.) or physical stress (auto accident, fall, poor posture, etc.); all of these stresses will have a negative effect on your body’s ability to heal and function properly. At Stanly Wellness Center, in addition to providing non-invasive tests looking for emotional and chemical stressors, we also provide on-site x-rays (radiographs) to determine how physical stress may be the cause to your symptoms.
