Chakras, by definition, are energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to the immune system and emotions. Chakra healing is very important for both our physical body and our spiritual body. There are 3 keys to chakra healing: Opening the chakras, Balancing of the chakras and Healing techniques. The opening of the chakras allows the energy to flow freely. Balancing the chakras create a harmonious and sustainable flow of the energy through the body. The process of healing chakras is aimed at influencing how the energy moves throughout all of the chakras. To learn more about chakras and the importance of keeping them balanced, make an appointment with Olivia McAllister at the Center for Health & Wellness for a private session.

Vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances are shown to have an incredibly potent effect when administered directly into a patient’s vein. Intravenous (IV) nutrition therapy, or vitamin cocktails, is a method used to "feed" vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids directly into the patients bloodstream and bypass the digestive system. A benefit of bypassing the digestive system is the patients’ inability to digest and absorb oral supplements properly. When supplements are taken orally, they must be processed through the stomach and intestines. If a patient has poor digestive function, the supplements may not be well absorbed or they may be rendered inactive in the digestive tract. Another great advantage of an IV cocktail is the ability to compound several vitamins and minerals together in higher concentrations making it easier to maintain compliance without digestive upset and/or discomfort. By administering the vitamin cocktail directly into the body through an IV infusion, higher blood levels may be achieved and this can provide an immediate therapeutic response.
At the Center For Health & Wellness, Tammara Beeghly, MMS, PA-C and her knowledgeable staff are able to customize a vitamin cocktail to fit your individual needs.
The Power of IV Vitamin Therapy:
Tammara’s focus at the Center for Health & Wellness is the prevention of disease and healing with a patient centered approach to healthcare (Functional Medicine). The Center for Health and Wellness believes that optimal health and wellness is the cornerstone to longevity, and identifying the underlying causes of disease by focusing on the whole person is key in getting, and keeping, patients healthy and happy.
Functional Medicine defined is: "a patient-centered approach that addresses the underlying cause of diseases". With this approach, both the patient and the practitioner are in a therapeutic partnership. When patients are part of this therapeutic team, they become more empowered to take ownership of their own well-being and healing.
Functional Medicine is a type of healthcare that is respectful of, and responsive to, the individual preferences of the patient. Practitioners spend more time with their patients to learn about their medical history and look at the interactions between genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term medical issues and chronic diseases. In doing this, the practitioner looks at the patient as a whole, not just a set of symptoms. Functional Medicine focuses on prevention and overall health promoting lifestyle change and sustainable treatments that address the underlying cause of dysfunction thus restoring patients to optimal health.
The primary difference between conventional medicine and functional medicine is that the focus of care is driven by wellness. The goal of conventional medicine is to identify diseases by recognizing patterns of symptoms and treating them with drug-based therapies, while the goal of functional medicine is to promote health and vitality in each patient. Functional medicine is designed to treat the patient by identifying the underlaying cause of the disease and then personalize a treatment protocol for each individual patient.
