Dedicated to Alternative and Complementary Medicine
The Phoenix is the ancient fire bird from Greek and other cultural mythologies. It was said to live for 1,000 years. Near the end of its life-cycle, it built a nest from cinnamon twigs and set itself and the nest ablaze. Out of the ashes arose a new Phoenix to live again for another 1,000 years. A drop of its tear would instantly heal any wound and make the person indestructible and immortal. No harm could befall it.
It is this concept of regeneration at the Heart of Phoenix Wellness Services (PWS). With a private library of over 15,000 clinical studies in Adobe Reader (PDF format) from peer-reviewed medical journals, PWS is up-to-date on all the latest research related to alternative medicine and more. This library continues to grow as new studies are made available and are posted on this site for the readers to personally view. The on going work of the Human Genome Project has mapped our genes confirming they are the driving force behind the expression of individual characteristics and whether or not a disease is “turned on or off”. Diet, exercise and one’s immediate environment determine whether a gene expresses itself or not. This either leads to disease or maintains health.
Fast foods high in sugar, hydrogenated fats, high-fructose corn syrup, lack of exercise and environmental toxins bring about disease while consuming organically grown food, pure water and appropriate exercise to meet our needs, supports our body’s ability to continually cellular regenerate and keeps us in optimal health.
What is CAM Health Care?
Complementary and Alternative (CAM) health care uses traditional and alternative medicine. You may want to discuss this with your physician. It complements what you are doing and offers alternatives to suit your needs in resolving your health issues. In many cases, CAM health care can be used on its own.
CAM has its roots in traditional healing methods such as acupuncture, botanical medicine, nutritional therapies (food = enzymes, minerals, vitamins) and other lesser known therapies. It holds the most promise in preventing and treating chronic degenerative disease without the detrimental side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs or other invasive treatments. It offers a wider variety of choices.
Working together with your physician, PWS can augment conventional treatments with non-invasive therapies to assist your healing. This approach quickens the healing process returning you to optimal health.
What Services are available?
Services available through PWS are preferred for their time-proven effectiveness. Whether it is an acute condition or chronic health issue, PWS helps you determine the most reliable approach to resolving it. Some of the services provided include:
• Loomis 24 hour urinalysis®
• ALCAT®, IgG and IgE allergy testing for food and chemicals
• Botanical medicine (herbs)
• Detoxification programs
• Digestive Challenge Test®
• Enzyme Nutrition Therapy
• Hair mineral analysis
• Lipid Replacement Therapy
• Quicksilver Tri-Mercury Test®
• smartDNA® Genomic Testing
• Nutrigenomics Genetic Testing
Since ancient times, urine has been used to access a patient’s health. The Loomis 24-hour Urinalysis® provides valuable information regarding the body’s chemistry: enzyme deficiencies, calcium, salt and vitamin C status, adrenal, kidney, thyroid and bowel function, and dietary food stressors.
ALCAT®, IgG and IgE ELISA® tests are the most accurate for determining underlying food and chemical intolerance. Knowing which foods or additives trigger an immune response helps you avoid them and heal the GI tract.
Botanical medicine (herbs) has existed for centuries in all cultures, on all continents. While media, pharmaceutical companies and drug-trained doctors incite fear about herbs, the vast majority of drugs are synthetic spin-offs of plant compounds. In most cases, herbs work as well or even better than their drug counterparts without the serious side effects. Medicinal plants have several compounds working together whereas a drug is an isolated chemical without any natural counterpart balancing its effects.
We live in a highly toxic environment. Farming with pesticides and herbicides, exposure to heavy metals, the threat of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) and the hazards of wireless radiation, the human body is in constant danger of breaking down from the buildup of toxins and alterations in our DNA. It is necessary for optimal health to follow Detoxification programs to cleanse and purify our bodies. In doing so, we detoxify our minds and achieve greater clarity.
The Loomis Digestive Function Test® reveals glands, organs and body systems that are stressed from either malnutrition or from what you eat. Carbohydrates, fats/oils and protein can trigger nutritional stress, affecting adrenal function just as emotional stress does. The Digestive Function Test® pinpoints the effects of what you eat to signs and symptoms of illness.
Enzyme Therapy improves digestion while adding nutritional support to stressed glands and organs. Enzymes are powerful nutrients doing the work our bodies need in order to survive daily. They stop inflammation, regulate immune system dysfunctions, rapidly repair injuries and heal conditions not responding to other conventional therapies. Every function and biochemical reaction taking place in our body is dependent on enzymes.
Hair mineral analysis identifies heavy metal exposure, mineral levels and imbalances. The MELISA® test evaluates reactions to jewelry metals. Many neurological conditions are the result of toxic heavy metal exposure. The Quicksilver Tri-Mercury Test® is the only clinical test measuring exposure and excretion capabilities of two principle forms of mercury. Inorganic mercury (Hg II) in blood usually reflects dental amalgam exposure while Methyl-mercury (Me Hg) reflects seafood consumption. This test is invaluable in today’s world of constant exposure to mercury.
Lipid Replacement Therapy® replaces damaged/oxidized fats of the cell membrane and mitochondria. Mitochondria are the cell’s miniature factory producing energy. Fatigue is the most prevalent symptom of disease. Replenishing fatty-acid portions of membranes and mitochondria is essential in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer and other disorders where fatigue is a critical factor.
Both the smartDNA® genomic profile and Nutrigenomic® test identify genetic weaknesses and potential for disease. The former test is a broad application with the latter focusing only on the methylation pathways. Based on test results, a personalized nutritional program is employed including supplements and diet, regulating your genes’ potential for disease expression by targeting your genes through nutrition. As the saying goes, “A better life through chemistry.”
What health issues are addressed?
• Allergies – food, air born, chemical
• Arthritis – osteo and rheumatoid
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
• Digestive disorders
• Immune and so-called auto-immune disorders
• Neurological – ADD/ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, depression, and other conditions
• Sports improvement, injury and pain
An initial consultation sets aside time for you to discuss your health concerns. You will be able to make an informed decision about whether PWS can be of service to you.
Specific tests are then recommended to properly assess nutritional imbalances in body chemistry exposure to environmental toxins and gain necessary information to maximize therapies.
It is the goal of PWS to ensure your role in the decision making process and enhance the therapeutic outcome on any health challenge. To make an appointment please call
