What does acupuncture do?
That depends on who you ask. From a Western medicine standpoint, acupuncture helps stimulate the brain to release natural painkillers known as endorphins and enkephalins. From a Chinese medicine view, acupuncture helps move energy that is stuck and improve the function of various organs.
What conditions does acupuncture help?
Acupuncture can be used to treat any condition, but Dr. Pamela finds it particularly useful for any condition that involves pain, whether it’s headache pain, joint pain, back pain, period pain or endometriosis pain.
I have already tried herbs for my problem and they didn’t work, why?
Herbal treatment is complicated. You need to choose the correct herb for you, choose a good quality product and take the right dose at the right frequency for the right length of time to get an effect.
What kind of diet or nutrition advice will I get from an ND?
Healthy diet and nutrition is a cornerstone of good health. Dr. Pamela gives each patient a customized list of best, neutral and worst foods for their particular health concerns, along with tips, recipes and suggested meals.
What lab tests do you offer?
Everything imaginable. Conventional lab tests like thyroid, iron and hormone levels, as well as specialized testing for just about anything else. In depth stool analysis for irritable bowel, Crohn’s, colitis or SIBO, blood testing for food sensitivities, heavy metal testing, genetic SNP testing, fertility testing, 24 urine hormone analysis, intracellular vitamin and mineral analysis and many others.
