Conditions We Treat
PALM Health provides a full range of medical services with a personalized and integrative health approach. Our providers spend time with you, listening to your history and customizing a health plan in order to help you prevent illness, enhance physical health and performance, cultivate and sustain emotional and mental well-being, manage and improve chronic conditions, address major medical diagnoses or trauma, age gracefully, and improve quality of life. Below is a list of conditions we commonly treat. Discover our integrative medicine services in the PALM Clinic to learn more.
Adolescence is generally a healthy time for many people, but some important social problems can start to appear or worsen during this developmental period, such as:
- Attention deficit disorders
- Mental disorders, such as depression or anxiety
- Weight problems or eating issues
Student health and academic achievement are correlated: healthy adolescents tend to be more effective learners. At PALM, we offer a Neurofeedback Student Package for students seeking to improve academic performance, or who have ADHD. Mental disorders can be addressed in a Psychiatry and Psychotherapy Initial Consult, which may focus on depression and anxiety management, well-being and life satisfaction optimization, stress reduction, or chronic illness management or treatment. Weight issues can be addressed in our intensive Weight Management Program, or with Nutritional Counseling.
Allergies and Asthma
At PALM Health, we offer an allergy elimination technique called NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique). NAET is a non-invasive, drug-free process, combining Kinesiology, Oriental Medicine, Traditional Allopathic Medicine’s wisdom, Acupressure, and Nutrition.
An individual can be allergic to anything: foods, drinks, drugs, herbs, vitamins, water, clothing, chemicals, people, plastics, pollen, grasses, etc. Allergy symptoms can range from mild problems to debilitating reactions to life-threatening illnesses. Medical researchers are still trying to understand the exact cause and nature of allergies. From a Western medicine perspective, an allergy is an overreaction of the immune system. In NAET, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective and based on Oriental Medical principles. They are defined in terms of the effect an allergic substance has on the energy flow in the body.
Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses, which, when left untreated can become serious. Energy imbalances in the body lead to a diminished state of health in one or more organ system. By reprogramming the brain and removing the blockages from the energy pathways, NAET allows the body to regain balance (homeostasis) and to function normally thus reaching optimum health.
Arthritis is a general term that refers to a condition that causes pain, swelling or inflammation in a single joint or a group of joints in the body. Some common types of arthritis are: Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), Rheumatoid arthritis (an inflammatory disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue) and Gout (usually affecting small joints in the hands and feet).
At PALM Health we take a functional/holistic medicine approach to arthritis by examining the core clinical imbalances that underlie these various diseases and conditions. Through a series of tests, we will be able to determine a plan to help you heal; we will help you eliminate infections, remove heavy metals, replace nutrients, balance hormones, detoxify your body and teach you a lifestyle of proper nutrition and stress management. We also employ additional tools such as NAET (an allergy elimination technique) and low level laser therapy to heal an inflamed or injured joint. Often, healing the body in this way can result in either eliminating or decreasing your need for prescription medications.
Several PALM physicians have expertise in the treatment of Arthritis. For example, Dr. Varsha Rathod is a Board Certified Rheumatologist and Internist, and she specializes in helping patients with this affliction.
Do you suffer from fatigue, headaches, muscle aches, abdominal pain, food allergies, brain fog or mood swings? Are you bothered by constipation or diarrhea? Do you experience insomnia, itchy rashes, or cravings for sweets or alcohol?
These symptoms can often be linked to an overgrowth of Candida, a form of yeast naturally present in the gut and genital tract that is responsible for the breakdown of complex sugars. When the body is balanced the immune system, along with beneficial bacteria, works to keep Candida within a healthy range. When this system fails, however, an overgrowth of Candida (Candidiasis) can occur. According to the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, yeast allergies are very common and can cause both immediate and delayed reactions.
Candidiasis often goes untreated because it is not detected during a routine exam or blood work. Patients are sometimes mistakenly diagnosed with depression or other conditions and unnecessarily treated with prescription drugs.
The first noticeable symptom of Candidiasis often occurs in the gastrointestinal and genital tracts. These symptoms can include, but are not limited to, vaginal discharge, itching, redness or rash around the genital area, acne, bloating, gas, and rectal itching. Over time, toxins that are by-products of Candida metabolism, accumulate and symptoms can worsen and lead to brain fog, headaches, and fatigue.
Candidiasis can be triggered by the frequent use of antibiotics, oral contraceptives and steroids, as well as by smoking, multiple pregnancies, thyroid or adrenal gland dysfunction, diabetes, inadequate immune system function, or poor nutrition, including a diet high in refined sugar.
At PALM Health we order specialized tests to detect the presence of Candida antibodies and stool PCR analysis for yeast forms when Candidiasis is suspected. Based on these test results and a physical exam, the doctor and patient work together to develop a health plan to re-balance the body. Treatment plans include dietary changes and, if appropriate, specific supplements or medications for a short period of time.
Cancer occurs when key systems in the body are out of balance. This can be due to poor nutrition, impaired detoxification, environmental exposure, inflammation, free radical stress, and/or genetic predisposition. According to the American Cancer Society’s annual report, approximately 1,600 Americans died from cancer each day in 2013. Overall, cancer accounts for nearly 1 in 4 deaths in the US.
Prevention can be accomplished through maintaining proper nutrition, removing toxins, keeping inflammation in check, balancing hormones, managing sun and UV light exposure, reducing or eliminating tobacco and alcohol use, exercising, maintaining a healthy BMI, learning to simplify your life, managing stress, and developing a network of people that you can rely on for friendship and support.
At PALM Health, we support patients who have been diagnosed with cancer by helping them identify key modifiable risk factors and holistically change their lifestyle. We focus on a plant-based, whole food diet with minimal sugar, oil, or salt. Certain supplements may be recommended to minimize healthy cell damage during chemotherapy. We do not offer chemotherapy or radiation at the facility, we do offer vitamin C infusion administration in our IV unit as well as chelation therapy to assist the body in the fight against cancer and the removal of toxic heavy metals; some studies have shown that cancer cells take up vitamin C at very high levels, leading to the oxidative damage of tumor cells. This can be a powerful support treatment to chemotherapy or radiation. Guided imagery, visualization, and meditation are additional tools we teach to help patients heal from cancer. PALM Health does not currently employ an oncologist. However, patients are encouraged to establish a relationship with an oncologist to maintain a variety of treatment options and to assist in tracking cancer progression and prognosis.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are often debilitating conditions that share a number of symptoms such as aches, sleep disturbances and fatigue. These two conditions are causing a rise in disability rates disproportionate to our capacity to identify and treat them. 25% of people with fibromyalgia are considered disabled.
Practitioners of integrative medicine assume that there is no magic drug that serves as a single source cure for this syndrome. They assume that there are several sub-clinical problems working in conjunction with one another, like players in an orchestra. Viral infections, parasitic infections, Candida, hypoglycemia, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, sick thyroid syndrome, and immune dysfunction can all play a role in orchestrating the cacophony of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Prior to diagnosing either of these conditions, illnesses such as Lupus, severe anemia, severe heart disease, and kidney disorders have to be ruled out. Once the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia has been made, then listening to you, correcting your immune system, treating infections and establishing a good nutritional program for you are the pivotal approaches we use to help you to start the healing process. When anxiety and severe intolerances to foods and chemicals are overwhelming, we often start with a gentle approach called NAET.
Chronic & Acute Pain
Many of us have suffered injuries requiring surgery, only to be left with residual pain after the damage has been “repaired.” The usual treatments for pain are over-the-counter painkillers (i.e. ibuprofen, Tylenol), NSAIDS (i.e. anti-inflammatory), prescription narcotics and corticosteroids. These medications only treat the symptoms and not the source, often producing unwanted side effects.
Low Level Laser Therapy heals at the cellular level without harmful side effects. It uses red and infrared light from low intensity laser diodes. The tissue in the affected area absorbs the light and allows the injured cells to begin healing. The light source is placed in direct contact with the skin allowing the photon energy or “healing light” to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with molecules inside the cell. This results in decreased inflammation, normal cell function, and enhancement of the body’s healing process. Other effects of Low Level Laser Therapy include the release of endorphins (your body’s own painkillers), an increase in the immune response, and an improvement in lymphatic drainage. Together these processes allow the cells to heal. This type of therapy has been very effective in eliminating or reducing acute and chronic pain issues. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other traditional treatments (physical therapy, massage therapy, surgery, etc.).
Low Level Laser Therapy operates at intensities too low to damage living tissue, unlike high intensity medical lasers used to thermally cut and coagulate tissue. Low Level Laser Therapy does produce radiation, as photon energy, in the visible and near infra-red regions of the electromagnetic light spectrum.
Other conditions that the Laser treats are soft tissue injuries, arthritis (limited to a few joints), tendonitis, fasciitis, post chiropractic manipulation to restore normal tissue, rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain due to disc herniation, severe pre-gangrenous tissue pain due to poor circulation, shingles neuropathy and many more conditions that are associated with pain and not fully helped by conventional techniques.
Diabetes & Diabesity
Some of you have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and are on drugs to control elevated blood sugar. Many more, about 50% of the population, have no obvious symptoms but lab testing shows the evidence of high cholesterol and triglycerides, and body composition analysis shows higher than 25% fat, and high blood glucose and insulin levels when tested after fasting and 2 hours post meal. This phenomenon is labeled “Diabesity.” In reality, this, like all other diseases, exist in a continuum between optimal and disease.
Diabesity is a growing epidemic, which is the leading cause of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, soft tissue damage, neuropathy, cancer and increased obesity. Not everybody with Diabesity will develop diabetes, even so, you can still get all the symptoms of a person with diabetes: constant hunger, burning neuropathy, aches and stiffness of muscles and tendons, vascular blockages, etc.
The good news is that it is virtually 100% correctable if the causes are properly addressed. The cause of Diabesity and Diabetes are a poor diet, unhealthy life style choices and the inability to eliminate toxins. By correcting your diet to exclude (or significantly reduce) refined sugars, excessive carbohydrates, alcohol, packaged-foods, and man made additives AND by eating a broad range of vegetables, fruits (in moderation), nuts, seeds, legumes and grains, you will lower blood insulin levels and inflammation. If you need animal protein make sure that you buy your meat from sources that do not use antibiotics, that are free range, and that give animals optimal diets without animal food additions and refined carbohydrates.
The lifestyle changes that aid your metabolism to function optimally include exercising daily, proper sleep, and learning relaxation techniques (for daily use and for stressful situations). Finally, foster companionship and community around you to motivate and inspire you to follow these life changes. We often hear from people who say that they seem to be following this program in isolation-as none of their friends and peers understand how they can follow such a rigorous diet. Our advice is that they educate the people around them, let them taste healthy food that is also delicious so they won’t think of healthy food as being a grueling punishment. We also encourage them to watch movies such as Food Matters, Forks over Knives, PlanEat, Supersize Me, etc. which might help them make the connection between their many afflictions (from joint pains to weigh gain and sluggishness) and what is going into their bodies through their mouths! Together, we can slowly create a movement and shift our definitions of treats and good food.
Toxins are land mines that make the terrain of optimal metabolism tough to achieve. We can test for and show you how to eliminate toxins from your body. Providing your body with colorful foods from the plant kingdom, will always enable detoxification. Drinking enough water throughout the day, bowel elimination twice daily, hot-sauna or soaks with Magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts), exercise, and sweating through Infrared Saunaa are also good ways to detoxify. Calming the mind in daily practice of meditation or prayer or any focused creative activity that you love will also work to help remove toxic thoughts that prevent healing.
Digestion is a process that occurs from the moment food enters your mouth until the time any remaining waste products are excreted from your body. Digestion requires acids, enzymes, optimal pH, properly functioning support organs (liver, gallbladder, pancreas), healthy intestinal bacteria and an intact stomach and intestinal lining. When the whole process is working properly ingested food is broken down into its smallest components and nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. These nutrients provide energy and building blocks for your body and brain.
When the digestive process is not working, any number of symptoms can occur. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, increased gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, reflux and ulcers. Long standing digestive problems can lead to nutritional deficiencies causing persistent fatigue and a compromised immune system. Depending on the individual, one of several specialized tests may be recommended based on the digestive complaints. These results are analyzed and shared with you to build a customized plan to restore long-term digestive wellness.
Nutrition and Digestion are so fundamental to the harmonious working of your body, nearly 70% of peoples complaints have their roots in this system being out of balance. This is why we spend significant of time focusing on this particular area. So, whether you have GERD, gastritis or irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s and Ulcerative colitis, we are here to help you sort out your imbalance.
Depression & Mood Disorders
The testing tools we use are varied and may include:
- Digestive assessment is done through: food testing, stool testing to eliminate parasites and to ensure there isproper population of “good” bacteria, amino acid profile as amino acids are crucial in the formation of- neurotransmitters.
- Hormonal testing for thyroid, adrenal, male and female hormones and insulin.
- Measures and markers for inflammation as there is increasing evidence that mood disorders may be correlated with the level of inflammation one has.
- Detoxification issues of heavy metals, pthallates and PCB’s. Sometimes poor detoxification may be caused by disruption of key detoxification pathways due to a chronic history of drugs.
- Assessment of social and spiritual well-being.
- Metabolic balance is assessed via a urine test (called the Organix Profile), body composition analysis,and the measurement of blood essential fatty acids, antioxidants and minerals.
The treatment plan we recommend is linked to your results. If we only test one area, then that is where we would begin to make changes. Regardless, we will discuss and help you change your diet to include foods that deter inflammation, encourage you to exercise, and help you employ-good sleep hygiene.
We sometimes recommend a tool known as Alpha-stimulation to help with anxiety, depression and insomnia. NAET is utilized when there are deep issues of trauma that need to be treated and diagnosed.
Maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and managing heart disease has multiple components. We use tools from traditional and holistic medicine to treat our patients. Our patients feel empowered-to make lifestyle changes by undergoing nutritional counseling and identifying stress reduction approaches that work for them. Many patients also come to PALM for IV Chelation treatments. Chelation is FDA approved for the treatment of heavy metal toxicity and is currently being studied as a means to prevent the progression of some forms of heart disease. It is believed that Chelation Therapy stabilizes multiple enzymes involved in the formation of plaque.
Inflammation is believed to cause significant damage and plaque formation in the arteries. Valuable diagnostic information may be gleaned from measuring levels of homocysteine and C-reactive protein in the blood. Elevated levels of these two markers indicate systemic inflammation in the body. Homocysteine is an amino acid found naturally in the body. High levels of homocysteine damage the arterial walls and cause inflammation. Levels of homocysteine will rise when there are nutritional deficiencies of vitamins B12, B6 and folic acid. Supplementation of your diet with these vitamins is known to lower homocysteine levels.
The other marker, C-reactive protein, indicates the presence of excessive inflammation in the circulatory system. Various research studies have noted a correlation between high levels of C-reactive protein and an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Inflammation can be reduced by eating a heart-healthy diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, walnuts, flaxseeds and fish, while avoiding hydrogenated oils (margarine, shortening) as well as saturated fats from meat and dairy products. This diet is the same one recommended for patients struggling with insulin resistance and diabetes.
At PALM Health we also perform Lab tests for cardiovascular risks beyond measuring for CRP and homocysteine. This lab contains a lipid panel that investigates the particle size of the cholesterol in addition to the quantity of cholesterol. It also measures a plaque contributing fat known as atherogenic fat. In addition it tests various markers for coagulation and metabolism such as fibrinogen, Lp-PLA2Insulin, vitamin D, homocysteine and CRP.
Another feature of this lab is that we can assess genetic risks and correlate it to your blood profile to create a personalized therapy. For example if you test positive for the gene, that correlates with a heightened risk for an early onset heart attack, then we would advise making the lifestyle changes (including medication or supplement) necessary to prevent this. Similarly, patients with abnormalities in the KIF6 gene were shown to benefit from Statin drugs. This test also checks for your ability to handle and benefit from two common drugs: Plavix and Aspirin.
Based on test results , we make recommendations for: dietary change, exercise with continual assessment of your body composition analysis, supplements and drugs as needed. We sometimes recommend Chelation therapy for those with unstable angina or for those who do not wish to undergo interventional therapies such stent placement or by-pass surgery. If there are metabolic or hormonal imbalances, we make recommendations for correction, as all of these help to decrease inflammation, increase anti-oxidant capacity to make your cardiovascular system function optimally.
For those interested in Cardiac Rehabilitation we design personalized programs that combine nutrition, coaching, fitness, stress reduction, and complementary therapies to gain strength and vitality.
Hormones, together with neurotransmitters, comprise what is known as the neuroendocrine system. Imbalances in hormones can frequently lead to imbalances in the neurotransmitters and vice versa. Neuroendocrine imbalances have been related to attention/learning issues, sleeping problems, menopausal difficulties, PMS, birth control issues, weight problems, depression, anxiety and libido issues. The doctor may recommend one or more of the following tests based on the symptoms you are experiencing:
Neurotransmitter Testing is often recommended when a patient is struggling with any of the issues mentioned above. Based on the results, the doctor is able to suggest a plan to bring the neurotransmitters back into balance. Testing for certain hormones may also be done at the same time.
Men & Women’s Hormonal Testing is done to determine whether there is a need for hormone replacement and to monitor hormone levels during hormone replacement therapy (HRT). If baseline levels are only slightly out of range the doctor may recommend supplements to support the affected hormonal system in lieu of HRT.
Thyroid and Adrenal Testing via saliva are used to assess your energy metabolism. Thyroid and Adrenal hormones are pivotal for maintaining energy levels and mood . In some cases the actual hormone levels may be normal, but you may have an auto-immune attack on these glands, which can create imbalance in multiple body systems. Heavy metals, the lack of essential minerals, or an impaired digestive system can contribute to thyroid problems. Chronic stress and inflammation can contribute to adrenal imbalance. Once again, having found the imbalance we treat it by proper diet, supplements and the judicious use of prescription hormones.
Mental Health Issues
Soft Tissue & Sports Injuries
The heavy emphasis on sports in schools and the popularity of sports in our culture has unfortunately led to an increase in the numbers of tendon, ligament and fascial as well as bone and joint injuries.
Steroid shots can temporarily mask pain, however, long term it can lead to bone loss and rupture of tendons and muscle tears. Similarly, anti-inflammatory drugs may decrease inflammation, but in many studies, masking pain can lead to worsening of injuries.
At PALM, we utilize light energy from Low Level Lasers to heal soft tissue and cartilage. Our laser heads are the size of an average palm of the hand with 180 lights. These LED lights are in two specific bands or wave-lengths on the electromagnetic spectrum in the red and infra-red regions. The light source is placed in contact with the skin allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules resulting in the normalization of cellular components. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes. The laser has been shown to alter growth factors that then promote growth of tissue and healing; the laser alters interleukins and cytokines that manage the inflammatory response and also alter molecules that lead to the growth a of new blood supply to the affected area.
Laser Therapy is a powerful adjunct to healing soft tissue and joints.
Nutrition and the appropriate use of supplements to allow the laser to do its job well is also part of what we do to heal these injured sites. Repair enzymes with co-factors to drive the cell’s energy making cycle, proteases, curcumin, MSM, hyaluronic acid and herbal products to help pain are some of the supplements we utilize. We often work with an orthopedic surgeon or chiropractor to facilitate healing.
When your body does not produce enough thyroid hormone, its normal rate of function slows, causing mental and physical sluggishness. This underproduction is known as “hypothyroidism.” Symptoms of hypothyroidism are vast and range from fatigue, headaches, depression, anxiety, weight gain, joint pain, infertility, heart disease, irritability, impaired memory, poor circulation and the list goes on.
The good news is that hypothyroidism can be corrected, if it is detected. Most physicians recognize the significance of testing TSH to check thyroid levels. When your TSH is high, thyroid function is proportionally low. Measuring TSH levels is a good start but it doesn’t give a complete picture. It is also important to check T3 Free, and T4 Free levels. Testing T3 Free, T4 Free and also reverse T3 gives a better sense of which hormones needs adjusting.
Often thyroid levels are in the normal range, but you may have developed antibodies that disrupt proper thyroid functioning. If this situation is detected, then our job is to determine why you might have developed these anti-bodies and to get rid of them. Most doctors believe that it is not possible to correct these auto-immune states. Dr. Rathod personally corrected her auto-immune thyroid condition known as Hashimoto’s and no longer has detectable antibodies nor use prescription thyroid medication.
The overall goal of treatment is to restore balance to your body’s metabolic function. Assessing the entire picture and taking into consideration both lab values and patient symptoms to customize a treatment plan yields the best results.
Tics and Tourette’s
Weight reduction and management are key concerns for most Americans. Obesity is at epidemic proportions and continues to rise. The market place is full of “remedies” for this popular health issue. Unfortunately, many of the supplements, diets, and exercise regimens are ineffective when you suffer from malnutrition or hormonal and metabolic imbalances.
Many approaches range from mildly unhealthy to dangerous. Patients report symptoms from excessive flatulence to serious and permanent organ damage. We continue to look for therapies that are effective, safe, and also serve a secondary purpose of detoxification.
We have found that taking a balanced approach including diet, exercise, water consumption, meditation, etc works best. We use high tech tools such as the body composition analyzer, nutritional counseling, researched supplements and inspiration. Our approach is to customize a plan based on analyzing your individual needs. It is integrated into your overall health goals. We apply traditional internal medicine along with various holistic approaches to assist you in reaching your goals.
PALM Health’s weight loss program consists of using a Body Composition Analysis, supplements, nutritional counseling as well as neurotransmitter and hormonal testing. We believe that good nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. Through education and supplementation, we recommend a thoughtful nutritional program to support your health goals.
Hormonal imbalance can cause a variety of symptoms and diseases in women, including:
Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Fibroid Uterine Tumors
Fibrocystic Disease of the Breast
Many doctors treat these issues by prescribing synthetic hormones, sometimes in combination with anti-depressants and anti-anxiety agents. These treatments are often based solely on patient-reported symptoms without ever testing actual hormone levels at critical points of the female cycle.
At PALM Health, our approach to bringing hormones into balance includes monitoring symptoms and lab values. PALM physcians have developed a testing routine that allows us to design a custom hormone replacement plan for each patient. We generally prescribe only Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Some of the testing involves: measurement of hormones on or around ovulation and at the peak luteal phase;- measurement of bio-transformed products of estrogen used to determine proper detoxification; and measurement of Estro-Genomics, a genetic test that enables me to know where you may need help while using hormones, thus personalizing your program to match your genes!
Natural vs. Synthetic or Non-bioidentical
“Natural” replacement hormones are exact replicas of the hormones our bodies produce on their own. They are manufactured from soy or wild yams. Some examples of these natural hormones are estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone. “Synthetic” replacement hormones are similar to the hormones our bodies produce. However, the small structural differences can cause these replacement hormones to react differently in the body, often leading to unpleasant side effects.
Some examples of non bio-identical hormones are Premarin, which is produced from pregnant mares and has very high levels of Estrones, which can predispose some women to cancer, or Provera-, known as a medroxy-progesterone, an altered progesterone with side effects such as weight gain and cancer. Ethinyl Estradiol is synthetic and is used in birth control pills as well as in menopausal formulations.
In addition to receiving only natural hormone replacement therapy, PALM Health patients enjoy the benefits of a full wellness evaluation which explores nutrition, stress, emotional and spiritual health, and physical fitness.
Our providers’ specialties include primary care, family medicine, functional and integrative medicine, neurology (adult and pediatric), preventive and rehabilitative cardiology, rheumatology, psychiatry, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.
In addition to being top specialists in their field, our medical providers are also skilled in traditional, naturopathic, and conventional medicine healing methods, and understand the relationship between your mind and body. They study the intricate interactions among the biological, genetic, environmental, emotional, psychological, and lifestyle factors influencing your health.
All of these factors are analyzed together to evaluate your individual health risks, diagnose the root cause of an illness, and develop whole person health plans that restore balance to key systems. When appropriate, our providers utilize advanced personalized lab testing (e.g. genetics, hormones, food sensitivities, inflammatory triggers, cholesterol particle size, nutritional status) and other assessments to gain an in-depth understanding of your health.
Our state-of-the-art facilities, the peaceful, inviting spa atmosphere, the highly knowledgeable and caring providers, and the vast array of concierge services all come together to offer you an oasis of well-being. At PALM, you will discover everything you need to attain, regain, and sustain health.
