PRIMARY CARE / MEDICAL SERVICES
A primary care provider is the practitioner that you see first when you
have a health problem. The primary care provider usually also assumes
ongoing responsibility for the patient in both health maintenance and
treatment. People sometimes refer to their primary care providers as
their "regular doctor".
A Balanced Life Health Care incorporates all the highest standards of
primary care. Patient history, physical exams, laboratory tests, and
diagnostic imaging are employed to arrive at a rapid and accurate
diagnosis. Health maintenance is encouraged with thorough yearly
check-ups. Patients are seen for preventative care such as annual pap
smears, as well as for problems such as colds and flus, headaches,
digestive problems, gynecological issues, hormone imbalances, fatigue,
and allergies (to name just a few).
Treatment with Natural Medicine includes Western botanical medicine
(herbs), Chinese herbal formulas, nutritional supplements, "body work"
and physical medicine, and changes in diet and lifestyle. Scientific
research is utilized to ensure safe and effective treatment. Natural
medicine is applied using the holistic concept of health. Careful
consideration of underlying causes of health problems are considered, as
well as troublesome symptoms. This approach results in a healthier,
stronger individual, as well as relief from the original ailment.
Used for over 4,000 years, acupuncture is effective for a great many
ailments. It is often utilized to relieve pain and promote healing

is very gentle at A Balanced Life Health Care. Patients usually feel
deeply relaxed during and after treatment.
