Hippocrates is considered the Father of Western Medicine. He developed a system or school for training other physicians and is credited with the phrase that many are familiar with: First, do no harm. What he meant was a physician should - first and foremost - not do anything that might worsen the patient's condition, or not be in the patient's best interests. He wrote a treatise or paper titled, Epidemics.
It sets the methods of treating various diseases. This treatise laid out the three elements for healing a disease: "The art - the practice of medicine, the physician--who is a servant of the art, and the patient - who must participate in the healing process." That, we believe, is what is missing in today's medicine -- including the patient in the healing process.
Naturopathic medicine is the heart of the Arizona Wellness Foundation. A complete and distinct system of medicine, naturopathy takes into account all aspects of a person (physical, mental, and spiritual) when considering treatment. Our naturopathic physicians will work with you to develop an personalized treatment plan for your unique needs. Rather than treating symptoms, our focus is upon discerning the cause of the patient's problem and then formulating the very best method of treating that problem. For more information, click here.
Arizona Wellness uses a variety of aesthetic treatments to help people look and feel their best. We offer Botox injections, Juviderm filler, Ozone IV Therapy, and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections.
Due to the high demand for these services, we have created a separate website devoted to our aesthetic treatments. For more information, check out or website Arizona Wellness Aesthetic Services.
We believe that we are the first to offer this format of tele-medicine to our patients. We realize the average patient must take time off from work to go to the doctor. That involves an uncertain cost of missed time from work. For a working parent who is concerned when her child is ill, being able to reach out to a doctor and know the child simply needs a supplement, homeopathic remedy, or a prescription saves that parent both time and money. Working people with basic needs that can be addressed quickly will also find this service attractive.
We treat accident victims with a more holistic approach. Our focus is upon promoting the patient's recovery. We also can offer drug free alternatives to pain management, including acupuncture, trigger point injections, and biopuncture. Light touch osteopathic manipulation and homeopathy have also proven effective.
ADDICTION TREATMENT & RECOVERY
Our physicians are experienced in treating those with addiction problems. The first order of business is to detoxify the body and allow the patient to cleanse their system, thereby freeing themselves of the chronic desire. We have had great success with all types of addictions, including tobacco, alcohol, and narcotics.
NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT
Weight problems are largely misunderstood. Though it has not yet become a part of the mainstream wisdom, the additives in food create the same forces that makes the body crave the fattening food. Research has established everyone has some kind of food allergy. These allergies can be mild and unnoticed or they can be extremely obvious. The body reacts to any allergen; in most cases related to food it causes inflammation. That in and of itself causes weight gain in most instances. We begin our weight loss program with a simple food allergy test to determine what foods might cause the patient difficulty. From those results we design a diet that allows the body to heal and adjust. This always results in weight loss. Our program is natural without gimmicks. Shedding unwanted pounds promotes good health.
MD SPECIALIST SERVICES
We also have a MD specialist who can assist a patient with a more traditional treatment program for those with substance abuse issues.
Arizona Wellness has an anesthesia group. We can administer trigger point injections and can refer a patient to a variety of surgeons should that become necessary. For more information, click here.
We have an MD specialist who provides home healthcare to elder patients and monitors patients who have recently been released from the hospital. We treat the patient in their own home, or in an assisted living facility depending on the patient's level of care required.
