Skin Health

The skin is the largest organ in the body and is often a reflection of our systemic health. When we observe how the skin reacts to stressors we can often catch chronic or even potentially serious issues early. The most common issues people face include acne, bug bites, cold sores, eczema, hives, ringworm, rashes, psoriasis and shingles. Many of us suffer from these common skin issues that can range from an inconvenience to something demanding enough to consume or interfere with our daily lives.

At Everspring Health, we’ll look at the health of your skin and any history you might have with a skin condition. Based on your diagnosis, we can make a plan that will seek to reduce symptoms and address any underlying systemic cause. Stress, diet and sleep will be the prime elements of an effective program as well as a specific nutritional program to target the primary symptoms.

We often can use therapies such as acupuncture and massage to help address systemic issues and help with the body’s normal system regulation. Since each case is unique, each treatment will be specifically tailored to you and your needs. Dermatological conditions are often the hardest to treat because of the daily commitment needed to support the healing process. We will educate you about these demands but it is important to understand that if these issue have been chronic for sometime it make take some time to appropriate repair the tissue not just eliminate the symptoms.

Healthy Weight

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.

Stress/Mood Disorders

Stress is one of the three primary elements we deal with at Everspring Health for every program we provide because it plays a role in everyone’s quality of life. Stress often reveals itself as anxiety which when chronic can lead to exhaustion and even depression. Many people who come to us don’t feel the need to go to a counselor, but are looking for more energy or relief from their anxiety. Others come with a clinical diagnosis and treatment plan already in place and we can integrate and work alongside your current program to support the progress you might already be experiencing. We can work with you, regardless of whether or not you’re already being seen for stress, anxiety, or depression, toward a better future.

We start by examining your past history and going through a series of constitutional diagnostics: some people may have experiences labeled as anxiety that are actually normal despite them not being ideal, while some are experiencing discomfort that should not be considered acceptable. These diagnostics will help us understand what’s normal for you and what can be improved upon. We can employ acupuncture and massage, as well as using herbal therapies to help ease stress and get you functioning at peak capacity. We also examine how your diet and sleep might be affecting your mood because these two components are crucial to a stable, productive mood. With time and patience, we can help you find long-term solutions to what you’re experiencing and enable you to be in control.

Smoking Cessation/Addiction Support

The desire to break undesirable habits varies from person to person and thus the programs for helping one quit must also vary. The cornerstone of any program must include the motivation to actually quit and change one’s lifestyle for the better. In any addiction body chemistry is highly invested in the chemical pathways on which it has been trained over the course of months or even years. To break these chemical pathways one will inevitably be challenged by the body as it will prefer to reinforce the current habit versus deciding to break from these normalized patterns. It is for this reason that having the desire and motivation to quit is really a key component for changing our lifestyle.

The next key component is to make sure the body is well supported to reduce the demands from both the chemical withdrawal as well as the habitual withdrawal. At Everspring Health, we want to know why and how your habit formed and what enables it to remain a part of your daily life. Does it help alleviate stress? Is it something you do with friends? Is there a pattern to when or where your habit is strongest? Understanding how your habits influence your life helps us build a strategy that will be the most successful for you. As mentioned above we need to both break from the body chemistry as well as the mental or emotional connection with the substance. Everspring’s lifestyle, health and healing programs integrate well with any outside program you may be utilizing, including support groups.

Acupuncture, diet and sleep along with herbal therapies can all reduce the intensity and frequency of cravings, and even get rid of them entirely. At the same time we educate you about what the cessation process will be like, and how you can position yourself to be most successful. Ultimately, we help you understand and identify what kind of life you want to create - one that doesn’t need to rely on an addiction - and proceed towards creating that experience. By pursuing what we want it becomes much easier to let go of the things we don’t want.

Women's Health

Our society tends to tell women with discomfort caused by PMS or menopause that it is normal and provide little support to help improve the quality of your life. Your body's natural cycles are not something you should have to suffer through, hide from, or feel guilty about; you are not alone and many women experience similar challenges. It is important for you to know that there are very effective therapies available which can reduce and eliminate many issues, such as pain, irregular cycle, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, dryness, clotting, chronic infections and many other gynecological challenges which can occur at all stages of a woman’s life.

At Everspring Health, we’ll look at your relationship with your body, as well as your mother or other female relatives’ experience with their reproductive cycles. Based on your diagnosis, we can make a plan that will both reduce symptoms and pursue better health. Therapies, such as acupuncture and massage, can be integrated with herbal therapies to help creat a healthy balance and we target the influence stress, diet and sleep have on your hormone system. Since each woman is unique, each treatment will be specifically tailored to you and your needs. Solutions are often easier to achieve than you might think, and we can help you learn how to dissolve the pain and discomfort associated with these issues. Ultimately we help you pursue a healthy rhythmic cycle and enhance your quality of life by balancing your body and providing peace of mind.

Digestive Disorders

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.

Insomnia/Sleep

40 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders each year, with an additional 20 million suffering from occasional sleep problems, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. It’s common for people to have trouble sleeping – it can be seen as a normal and acceptable discomfort that some of us simply have to deal with. In reality, insomnia, unproductive sleep, or other sleeping issues are not something you should have to deal with.

At Everspring Health, we can help you get back to a normal sleep schedule. We look at a variety of factors, starting with your history: when did you start having troubles with sleep? When do you wake up? Do you have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or both? Is it linked to a stressor or recent life change? Once we’ve learned everything we can about what’s going on, we examine your diet and stress levels throughout the day, and talk to you about how these lifestyle factors can affect your ability to go to sleep or stay asleep at night. We help alleviate the anxiety response sleep issues often provoke, and regulate stress hormones through changes in diet, acupuncture and massage, and herbal therapies. We also look at other environmental factors, like if you use your computer, a TV, or other electronics in your room, or if you have pets or a spouse that might affect your sleep patterns.

We approach the situation with the understanding that people with sleep disorders are actually tired, but are being prevented from sleeping due to environmental, physical, or personal reasons. Together, we work to create a setting where you are able to sleep comfortably and successfully night after night.

Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common issues we deal with here at Everspring Health. From repetitive stress injuries to poor posture to back pain with unknown causes we see it all. So, when you come in to see us we begin by looking at your history with back pain and all possible influential factors: where it came from, what it feels like, if it changes based on varying activities, body movements, temperatures, seasons, or times of day.

We want to know everything we can about your experience in order to develop a treatment strategy that will work for you, specifically. Acupuncture and massage are often used to help relax muscles and ideally relieve some of the immediate pain, as well, we us therapies like positional release and physical exercises as needed. Our integrative approach often utilizes chiropractic and physical therapy as a part of an effective treatment program. We fully examine lifestyle habits stress, diet, sleep, posture and use further observations to improve your body’s ability to ideally alleviate pain permanently. If you have a current course of treatment – like physical therapy or surgery – we’ll work with your doctors to provide the best relief possible.

Headaches/Migraines

Headaches have become an acceptable reality for our modern lifestyles, when in actuality, they shouldn’t be. A headache should not be a daily occurrence, and a chronic headache should never become strong enough to be considered a migraine, cluster headache or similar. At Everspring Health, we review your history with headaches: how long have you had them? What occurred around the time of onset of the condition? What do your headaches feel like? How often do you get them? Are they sensitive to changes in temperature, seasonal shifts, or different times of day?

    Types of Headaches include:
  • Acute headaches
  • Cluster headaches
  • Chronic progressive headaches
  • Hormone headaches
  • Migraines
  • Mixed headache syndrome
  • Sinus headaches
  • Tension headaches

Your history, paired with an understanding of your personal balance of stress, diet, and sleep, will lead us to choosing an appropriate treatment plan. This plan will involve a change in lifestyle (more sleep, less stress, more appropriate diet), physical therapy (acupuncture, massage), postural alignment or positional release, or an examination of neurological or systemic issues. Each plan is specific to each individual’s diverse experience.

Some headaches may be signs of a serious medical condition. Headaches with any of the follow symptoms need immediate medical support:
  • Vomiting without nausea
  • Severe dizziness
  • Fever
  • Extreme neck pain
  • Sudden abrupt onset
  • Sudden Hypertension

Holistic Medicine Principles

Principles embraced by the Members of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine

 

  1. Optimal Health is the primary goal of holistic medical practice. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest level of functioning and balance of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of human experience, resulting in a dynamic state of being fully alive. This creates a condition of well-being regardless of the presence or absence of disease.
     
  2. The Healing Power of Love. Holistic health care practitioners strive to meet the patient with grace, kindness, acceptance, and spirit without condition, as love is life's most powerful healer.
     
  3. Whole Person. Holistic health care practitioners view people as the unity of body, mind, spirit and the systems in which they live.
     
  4. Prevention and Treatment. Holistic health care practitioners promote health, prevent illness and help raise awareness of dis-ease in our lives rather than merely managing symptoms. A holistic approach relieves symptoms, modifies contributing factors, and enhances the patient’s life system to optimize future well-being.
     
  5. Innate Healing Power. All people have innate powers of healing in their bodies, minds and spirits. Holistic health care practitioners evoke and help patients utilize these powers to affect the healing process.
     
  6. Integration of Healing Systems. Holistic health care practitioners embrace a lifetime of learning about all safe and effective options in diagnosis and treatment. These options come from a variety of traditions, and are selected in order to best meet the unique needs of the patient. The realm of choices may include lifestyle modification and complementary approaches as well as conventional drugs and surgery.
     
  7. Relationship-centered Care. The ideal practitioner-patient relationship is a partnership which encourages patient autonomy, and values the needs and insights of both parties. The quality of this relationship is an essential contributor to the healing process.
     
  8. Individuality. Holistic health care practitioners focus patient care on the unique needs and nature of the person who has an illness rather than the illness that has the person. 
     
  9. Teaching by Example. Holistic health care practitioners continually work toward the personal incorporation of the principles of holistic health, which then profoundly influence the quality of the healing relationship.
      
  10. Learning Opportunities. All life experiences including birth, joy, suffering and the dying process are profound learning opportunities for both patients and health care practitioners.
