At Everspring Health, our pursuit of healthy weight involves creating a solid awareness of how stress, diet and sleep influence our body composition. By creating a foundation of awareness that allows for understanding the principles of healthy weight a true reliable resource evolves, one where we can always return to for reliable results. Healthy weight is not determined by some generalized scale or marketing fad. The Everspring Health healthy weight program focuses on awareness of our daily lives and nourishment of our whole body.
Awareness is focused on three lifestyle factors: stress, diet, and sleep because the three things influence all disease and are primary influential factors in the pursuit of healthy body composition. Nourishment is focused on getting each cell, every cell the appropriate nutrients to create optimal function so the body can safely lose weight. When you are healthy body, mind and spirit your weight will be right where it needs to be. This is not to say you cannot have specific goals to pursue but as your awareness grows about life as a whole your goals become better defined, increasing your ability to achieve your goals. It's not about cheating or quick fixes it is about quality of life.
At Everspring Health we talk about the value of managing stress, eating foods specific for your needs, and going to bed at specific times to produce optimal quality of life. We help you create reasonable health goals and create a lifestyle that results in long-term optimal weight. We use clinical therapies to help improve digestion, regulate metabolism and reduce stress. If exercise is a part of your goals, we can help you develop a program that will balance workouts with proper rest because that is most productive. We help you develop a personalized dietary plan, which will help you sustain a long term healthy weight and empower you to understand how food influences your life. Ultimately, we create a space where you can be healthy, and then we let your weight adjust to your improved level of health.
Digestive issues are some of the most common challenges individuals face on a daily basis. Many people think that some of these issues are ‘normal’ and are just a part of life but they don't have to be. The variety of issues individuals experience can be quite diverse: abdominal bloating or pain, frequent gas, fatigue, irregular bowel movements, low appetite, excessive hunger, GERD, IBS, IBD, Crohns disease, Colitis and many more. Whether you experience mild and uncomfortable symptoms or you have a more severe digestive challenge, these issues can be addressed quite effectively.
At Everspring Health, we can usually do something right away to give you short-term relief from your digestive disorder as well as long-term relief by utilizing a personalized health program. We start by learning everything we can about your past and current health history in order to form an accurate diagnosis. You will be educated on how diet and stress affect how you feel, as well as how sleep affects the digestive tract. Herbal and dietary therapies are often a primary strategy, alongside acupuncture and massage. Each person is different – some people will need to come in more frequently, while others will need to return less. We can find a long-term solution with time and patience.
Everspring Health approaches reproductive health in several different ways, the first of which is proactive. Come see us when you’ve just begun planning a family. It is actually quite common for healthy couples to face fertility hiccups and challenges. These often occur when lifestyle stressors inconveniently line up with natural shifts in hormonal rhythms that could temporarily affect either partner. Most often in this stage challenges are associated with expectations of planning versus actual clinical health conditions.
Engaging with us before planning becomes more targeted means that, at the very least, we can create a program where everyone involved is healthier, more comfortable, and more prepared to greet a new member of the family. Often couples come to us in the midst of their planning calendar which increases stress and often leads to further challenges. Our recommendation is at least 90 days of preperation to help allow for ideal alignment of expectations and natural hormonal rhythms. This time period might need to be increased depending influential factors like extended use of birth control pills as one example. With the right preperatory care, you can increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth and decrease the risk of any postpartum challenges.
On the other side of things, if you are already experiencing problems with fertility, it’s important for you to know that nothing is necessarily wrong with you or your spouse: it may just be that you need tools to help boost your health and reproductive processes. We can use acupuncture and massage, herbal therapies, and nutrition to create a better environment for pregnancy without putting the large amounts of stress on the woman’s body that reproductive endocrinology involves. Using our integrative approach, we can give your body its best chance to create and foster new life.
Finally, for those already using reproductive support services (e.g. a Reproductive Endocrinologist) we can work to support your current program including providing acupuncture to support ovarian stimulation and before and after embryo transfer.
Chronic fatigue is a syndrome characterized by extreme fatigue that is not linked to another underlying medical condition. The fatigue tends to get worse with physical or mental demands and is not improved even with sufficient rest.
Chronic fatigue as a syndrome cannot be diagnosed by a single test and in many cases it is a diagnosis arrived at by ruling out all other possibilities. Often chronic fatigue is experienced in association with many other symptoms which furthers the effort to rule out other diseases or instigating conditions. Unfortunately, this also complicates progress as the individual is going untreated as the diagnostics continue.
Conventional treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome focuses on symptom relief, whereas at Everspring Health our integrative therapy focuses on peeling back the layers of chronic fatigue to sufficiently dissolve the issue. Our treatment goes beyond management of symptoms; we develop an integrative program including nutrition, exercise, manual therapy (acupuncture, massage, etc) to provide you with a productive long-term solution. We start by understanding your past and current health history, in order to narrow down the primary influential factors. The benefits of Everspring Health’s approach is that most often something can be done to pursue a level of normal of function while diagnostics continue to rule out any other issues that may need to be addressed.
The challenges one should understand when dissolving chronic fatigue is that progress may be slow and sporadic until certain benchmarks of time are met using consistent therapy throughout that time. One should be prepared to engage and invest in a program for at least 90 days so that enough progress can be made and then understood to create a lifestyle that can further the program and ideally dissolve the condition while seeking to prevent it from returning.
