Complementary Medicine

Complementary Medicine (CAM)

The days in which doctors would simply write a prescription for a new opioid or anti-depressant are fading quickly. Instead, a new and improved public health model combines conventional and alternative practices with a steadily increasing focus on holistic care.

According to a recent Mayo Clinic study, nearly 40% of adults surveyed reported using some kind of complementary alternative medicine to treat symptoms related to a wide variety of mental and physical health issues. And for many, these treatments have resulted in significant improvements to their health and quality of life.

At Ananda we offer an unparalleled range of alternative therapies. Click on the icons below for more information on each of our holistic treatments:

Internal Deficiency Infusions

Internal Deficiency Infusions are a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition. When substances are given orally they must be processed through the stomach and the intestines. Many substances may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract, or may not be well absorbed due to poor intestinal function.

Metabolic Testing

The Resting Metabolic Rate test (RMR) determines the amount of energy (calories) your body is using at rest. This measurement is made by analyzing the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces. Almost all of the energy your body produces is created through aerobic (oxygen utilizing) metabolism.
