This clinic has found it most beneficial to identify the root-source or foundation of illness and disease as a means of successfully treating and/or healing disease! Unfortunately, medicine as practiced today is rushed and therefore, no longer prevents or effectively treats disease. Thankfully, this clinic believes it is our privilege to assist people in really experiencing health, or wholeness, which is always a result of a healthy mind, body, and more importantly, spirit! Our ideal client has audacious faith to know that things can, and will, always change for the better when you fight for it!
