OUR SERVICES

WHAT WE ARE GOOD AT

Lake View Family Wellness is a group of practitioners from all disciplines of medicine who specialize in natural and Integrative medicine for patients of all ages. Naturopathic medicine, also called naturopathy, is a comprehensive and holistic approach to primary medical care which is designed to support the body’s natural healing capacities.

At Lake View Family Wellness we help you make the connection between what you eat and how you feel.

 

Our model is Integrative because we utilize the best therapies from mulitple medical traditions, along with looking at the body as an integrated whole.

We have treated hundreds of patients for erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and testosterone deficiencies.

We apply the latest in science and nutrition to energize the youth of your cells.

These therapies are non-invasive techniques to help reduce pain and inflammation. These therapies can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. Most of the non-invasive therapies we provide are FDA cleared and they enable patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.

HealthCoach 7 is a revolutionary opportunity to optimize your health and prevent disease. HealthCoach 7 uses the latest in DNA Technology to provide you with life changing information that will change the way you look at your personal health goals.

Appropriate osseous and/or soft tissue manipulation can be a critical aspect of a health optimization program. Manipulation involves active or passive techniques employed to improve your joint and skeletal structure and function.

 

Long term weight loss begins with retraining your metabolism. When factors influencing metabolism are addressed, healthy weight loss can be achieved.

 

We employ intravenous nutritional therapy to enhance the immune response, decrease arterial plaque formation, and overcome chronic and acute medical conditions from cancer to sinusitis and chronic fatigue.
