Complex Chronic Illness
At Alder Family Medicine, our treatment philosophy is to first establish a foundation of health to create stability in our patients. This is achieved by supporting the physiology and the nervous system, balancing the hormones, and treating the gastrointestinal system. Then, heavy metal or chemical toxins are identified with lab work and exposure history. Appropriate detoxification strategies are employed to stimulate the organs of elimination to release toxins. Immune modulation therapies are also used to support the function of a healthy immune system, augment its response to infections and toxins, and minimize or treat any autoimmunity. Antimicrobial treatments including herbs, antibiotics, or other pharmaceutical agents may be recommended, depending on the individual case.
Our practitioners also work with a large referral network of practitioners and specialists to assure our patients are appropriately supported on their journey to health.
