National Nutrition Month – Quick Nutrition Tips

May 20, 2013

National Nutrition Month

March is “National Nutrition Month” and at DreamBody, we support the idea of having a vitamin enriched and healthy body. We offer a variety of customizable IV Vitamin and Mineral Therapy treatments. A deficiency of important vitamins and minerals can lead to high blood pressure, fatigue, depression and infections. We will customize a vitamin “cocktail” for you to receive while relaxing in one of our comfortable La-Z-Boy recliners.

In conjunction with these treatments, make sure you are eating right and taking our physician grade supplements to ensure that you are the healthiest version of YOU.

Easy nutrition tips:

  • Keep cut up veggies and fruits in the fridge as quick snacks.
  • Add vegetables to meals you normally eat to increase your vitamin intake; omelets, pizza, baked potatoes and even your morning smoothie.
  • Drink more water!
  • Choose whole grains over white breads and rice.
  • Eat a variety of protein; eggs, nuts, seafood, and beans along with lean meat and poultry.
  • Choose 100% fruit juice instead of sugary, fruit-flavored drinks.

Following these healthy tips will help you on your way to a nutritious body. Speed up the process by contacting DreamBody about our IV Vitamin and Mineral Therapy Treatments!

Cold and Flu Season is Approaching

December 13, 2012

It’s that time of year again; time to prevent the common cold and flu virus from taking over your body. At DreamBody Medical Centers, we practice “preventative” medicine. As Dr. Budnick mentioned in his Vitamin D article, it is important to have a strong immune system. To strengthen your immune system, you can take a starting dose of 2000 IU of vitamin D every day. He believes that this is a better immunity booster than Vitamin C. Another option is to get a weekly
B12 injection
to improve your
energy level
and immune system. Some patients tell us that since their B12 therapy has started, they are less prone to getting sick during this season.

We also offer our very popular vitamin IV’s. Each IV includes high doses of ascorbic acid, B-complex, zinc, selenium, and multi trace elements. The IV takes about 45 minutes to get. While in our office, we have you relax in a lazy boy recliner with the option of watching television or using the time to take a quick nap! Getting essential vitamins through the IV route is better than if you were to take all the above vitamins in pill or tablet form.

IV Mineral and Vitamin Therapy is another way to prevent illness. The benefits of vitamin IV’s are endless. They promote better health and enhance the healing process while our bodies are challenged during illness. We often treat conditions such as
fatigue depression, fibromyalgia, upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergic rhinitis and asthma with our vitamin IV’s.

IV’s are regularly priced at $155 each, but during the month of December, we are offering the IV’s at a discounted rate of $90 each. To take advantage of this great special, please give our office a call to schedule your IV treatment. I will meet with you to go over your medical history and answer any questions that you may have regarding the treatments we offer to help you feel better this cold and flu season.

Make it a healthy season!

IV Therapy

December 29, 2011

Most anybody is a candidate for IV vitamin therapy, but we do see patients on a daily basis for chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and high stress patients.

At DreamBody, we take the time to listen to what you’re suffering from, your complaints, and we customize an IV that is appropriate for you. A vitamin IV here at DreamBody generally takes about 45 minutes. Each IV is customized according to you individually.

We typically give everybody a modified Meyer’s cocktail, but if you’re lacking a certain nutrient, we will increase that. If you have an allergy to a certain vitamin, we’ll decrease that or eliminate it completely. So we really do customize each and every IV that we offer here. In conjunction with IV vitamin therapy, we do offer a huge variety of physician grade supplements that go hand in hand with treatment.

Doctor, Why am I So Tired?

December 21, 2011

Fatigue is one of the most common health complaints seen in a doctor’s office.

Fatigue is also known as weariness, tiredness, exhaustion, or lethargy, and is generally defined as a feeling of lack of energy. Fatigue is not the same as Chronic Fatigue. According to specific diagnostic criteria from the Centers for Disease Control, Chronic Fatigue affects as much as 8 to 10 percent of the population. However, every day fatigue is a pervasive problem. In fact about 80% of our patients list fatigue as a primary concern when they come to our office.

What are Common Causes of Fatigue?

There are many possible physical and psychological causes of fatigue. Some of the more common causes we see at our office include food allergies, anemia (including iron deficiency), sleep disorders, underactive thyroid, improperly functioning adrenal glands (both excess and deficient), hormone imbalances, digestive problems, lack of exercise, excess weight, stress, and poor nutrition.

About the Most Common Causes of Fatigue Seen in Our Office;

 

Hypothyroidism

This may be the most commonly missed diagnosis today, with 40 percent of the population having undiagnosed hypothyroidism. Our office routinely treats undiagnosed hypothyroidism, which responds well to either specific supplements or thyroid medication.

Adrenal Glands

Another under-diagnosed problem is improperly functioning adrenal glands. This condition is normally due to prolonged stress and eventually results in fatigue.

Melatonin Deficiency

One of our hormones to decline early in life is melatonin. As a result, sleep is disrupted, resulting in fatigue. Simple supplementation can greatly improve sleep for roughly 70 percent of our patients.

Other Hormones

As we age, many of our hormones (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA) decline, affecting our overall energy level. Supplementing with bio-identical hormones to treat these deficiencies greatly helps to improve energy and youthful vitality.

Poor Nutrition

We live in a time of fast foods and poor nutrition, which affects our ability to process sugar and decreases the amount of energy we have. Changing our diet and correcting our metabolism results in more energy and improved health.

How Can Fatigue Be Treated?

 

Treating fatigue begins with an initial consultation with one of our doctors. A complete history is then taken and an examination is performed. Saliva and/or blood work is also undertaken. Based upon the information gathered, an individualized and personalized treatment plan is developed and reviewed with the patient. A comprehensive, holistic treatment plan is then recommended. Common treatments employed can include personalized nutrition plans, specific supplements, intravenous therapies, specific dietary recommendations, lifestyle modifications, weight loss programs, detoxification, bio-identical hormones, psychological support and pharmacologic therapy as needed.

Our Offer to You

 

If you feel you may have fatigue, we are offering a no-charge, 20-minute consultation with one of our doctors to help evaluate your condition and introduce you to our office and its caring staff.
