Medical Services for everyone

Dr. Carianna draws from a range of natural medical approaches, or modalities, to treat each patient. The choice of modalities is based first on what is most likely to be effective for the patient’s health needs, as well as what approaches fit a person’s lifestyle. For example, some people know they are unlikely to follow a complicated approach, and others come to the office knowing for instance that they do or do not want acupuncture, or dietary changes. The doctor will take all these considerations into account in order to increase the chances that the treatment plan will help an individual.

Acupuncture, Moxibustion, and Chinese Botanicals

Chinese medicine is a system of medicine used to successfully treat a wide variety of medical conditions including pain syndromes, musculoskeletal conditions, acute and chronic effects of injuries, stress and anxiety, and a large number of chronic conditions and illnesses. It is also used to promote and enhance wellness for people interested in optimizing their already good health. Acupuncture is performed using extremely thin sterile single use needles and is sometimes enhanced by the comfortable use of warming therapies, called moxibustion. Chinese herbal preparations are also used to reinforce treatment.

Nutritional and Orthomolecular Medicine

Nutritional medicine involves using foods or the derivatives of foods, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, natural hormones, enzymes, and other substances, to treat disease or to optimize health. There is an enormous amount of clinical medical research that informs the use of dietary supplementation in the prevention and treatment of disease and the optimization of health.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine is a traditional European treatment approach that uses dilutions of natural substances to trigger the body’s own recuperative mechanisms. It is used for treatment as well as prevention of acute and chronic illnesses and can treat multiple symptoms at the same time. It is also useful for patients who are experiencing symptoms that are difficult to diagnose.

Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine is the use of plant materials for their positive chemical effects on health. Most of us find botanical medicine very easy to understand since pharmacology was an offshoot of botanical medicine, also known as pharmacognosy. Botanical medicine uses liquid extracts or capsules to deliver plant based medicine which is effective in treating many chronic and acute diseases. In many cases plant based medicine is associated with fewer side effects than their pharmaceutical counterparts.

Dietary and Lifestyle Approaches

Changes in diet, in sleep patterns, in emotional and stress management, and in activity and exercise can have profound impact on health and wellness. At times Dr. Carianna will outline potentially important choices which can help to change the intensity or course of an illness or optimize health.
