What is holistic health care?
A holistic approach is one that tries to fully understand various healing methods, so as to apply the correct methods when appropriate in a simple and practical manor.
Should I stop seeing my regular doctor?
Absolutely not. CarePro appreciates the tremendous skills, training and value a medical doctor can contribute to a person's healthcare. Before engaging in an alternative health therapy, it's important to get a proper diagnosis from a licensed medical doctor. Fortunately, many medical doctors are becoming more open to working with alternative health practitioners. That partnership is called "integrative medicine" and can produce winning results.
Are probiotics safe?
Probiotic bacteria are already part of the normal digestive system and are considered safe. Always tell your doctor if you are using a dietary supplement or if you are thinking about combining a dietary supplement with your conventional medical treatment.
What are testing options for food sensitivities?
There are many testing options available for testing for food sensitivities, and most we can do right in our Advance Health store. Let us discuss your concerns with you, and we can determine the appropriate test to order.
How do I know if my nutrient needs are being met?
We have trained, experienced staff who would love to sit down and analyze your nutritional needs with you. We can test for vitamin deficiencies and help create a personalized nutritional plan for you.
What is gluten-free and what is it for?
A person on a gluten-free diet had to avoid all gluten, which is a protein found in most grains and starches. It is also found in other processed foods or medications. This protein has been shown to cause inflammation of the digestive tract in people who have celiac disease or gluten allergies. A gluten-free diet will allow for the digestive tract to heal.
Do you have a nutritional supplement that will fit my food allergy?
We have many supplements that are gluten-free, dairy-free, dye and preservative-free, soy-free, and sugar-free. If your needs are more unique, we can find a supplement that will be right for you.
Can Advance Health help me work around other food allergies besides gluten?
Absolutely. Our nutrition counseling and integrative counseling is a great way to learn how to live with food allergies. You don't even need a doctor's recommendation to come in. Just contact us to request an appointment.
