DR. PORTER TREATS THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:
DEPRESSION. Neurotransmitter testing can help determine levels of Serotonin and Dopamine. Specific nutritional therapies are given to raise Serotonin and Dopamine levels, improving mood, and allowing most patients to eliminate medications and side effects.
ANXIETY. Patients are prescribed very specific diets, alternative nutritional therapies, and natural hormone replacement to rebuild emotional stability. Social anxiety is a form of chronic anxiety and even depression that can significantly improve with the help of alternative medicine.
MEN’S WELLNESS. Men’s wellness focuses on reducing risk of cardiovascular, diabetes, and cancer risk, while at the same time optimizing hormone levels for sexual function and energy. Therapies include hormone replacement, dietary guidance, and natural medicines to maximize energy and lifestyle.
FATIGUE. Fatigue is caused by food allergies and Candida overgrowth in the intestinal tract. A detoxification diet focused on rebuilding the normal intestinal flora is the start to return of optimal energy levels. In addition, immune distress and thyroid and hormone deficiencies also cause fatigue. Appropriate lab work can help determine the right and quickest approach.
CANCER. Cancer is caused by the deficiency of oxygen and it resultant acid state leading to the production of cancer cells. Alternative medicine offers immune enhancing benefits, kills cancer cells, and helps patients detoxify from chemotherapy and radiation. Patient life expectancy easily doubles with the simultaneous application of alternative medicine while doing chemotherapy or radiation.
HORMONE DEFICIENCIES. Natural hormone replacement therapy enhances mood, strength, energy, and is known to reduce many chronic disorders including diabetes, alzheimers, heart disease, and even some cancers. Blood and saliva testing help determine individual levels to customize dosing for each person and minimize any side effects.
LEAD and MERCURY TOXICITY. Many circulation and heart conditions are associated with toxicities of heavy metals. The cardiovascular system appears to concentrate metals which lead to chest pain and high blood pressure. These metals are also associated with many immune conditions including cancer and auto-immune disease. Heavy Metal Testing can evaluate the presence and levels of more than 20 plus toxic metals.
ADRENAL BURNOUT. Chronic stress treats the adrenal glands like a sprinting hamster that eventually wears out leading to exhausting fatigue. Adrenal Testing can evaluate the degree of burnout. High dose vitamin replacement and adrenal tonifying herbs can rebuild the system and restore energy to previous youthful levels.
IgG FOOD ALLERGIES. Food allergies can cause persistent digestive complaints and even lead to chronic allergy and pain conditions. IgG food intolerance testing can be used to discover the culprit foods. Many conditions improve in just days and weeks following the implementation of a personalized diet.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. Hypertension is caused by food allergies and toxic metals. Natural therapies are able to reduce and even eliminate the need for prescription medications.
DIABETES. Alternative medicine provides great hope for diabetics who often feel they are only provided medication as a treatment option. Natural medicine Is able to define specific nutritional protocols to reduce medication and even reverse the disease process.
HIGH CHOLESTEROL. Cholesterol is believed to be the sole cause of heart disease. Heart disease is more about inflammation and toxic metals. Comprehensive lab testing evaluates true risk and helps reduce cholesterol levels and focus and true risk factors that lead to and cause heart disease.
RHEUMATIOD ARTHRITIS. Rheumatoid arthritis and other auto-immune diseases find significant relief through alternative medicine. Testing can evaluate underlying cause and reduce symptoms and long term risk.
FIBROMYALGIA. Fibromyalgia pain finds great success in treatment with alternative medicine. Patient’s symptoms begin to resolve in just days and a few weeks upon starting the detoxification protocols found in natural medicine. Minimum 50 % improvement in all symptoms can be seen in just 4 weeks.
BACK PAIN. Alternative medicine offers many promising therapies including acupuncture and prolotherapy to rebuild and stabilized damaged joints. Therapies reduce chronic pain and the use of medications that cause other serious side affects.
MIGRAINES. Chronic migraines find significant relief through acupuncture and environmental medicine. So many patients have developed environmental sensitivities through a lifetime of exposure leading to immediate reactions to scented perfumes and even food allergies.
