Physical exams

A physical exam presents an opportunity to check in on your general health and well-being. Even if you feel well, it’s important to visit the doctor at least once every year. Many serious health problems like diabetes don’t present obvious symptoms in their early stages. Aside from providing insights about your health, a physical exam also presents an opportunity to build a relationship with your clinician.

Women’s health care

Women are particularly susceptible to conditions like osteoporosis, heart disease, breast cancer, and autoimmune issues. Menopause, perimenopause, weight gain, and sexual problems can also affect your energy levels, confidence, and quality of life. The providers at Ridgway Center for Whole Health regularly work with women to ease uncomfortable symptoms and improve their health.

Men’s health care

Men don’t always visit their doctor regularly. They’re also more likely to ignore unusual symptoms and use alcohol and tobacco more often. The men’s health providers at Ridgway Center for Whole Health regularly partner with men to address issues like fatigue, erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, and heart disease.

Management of chronic conditions

Chronic conditions like thyroid disease, diabetes, and asthma increase your risk of other health problems and premature death. Fortunately, it’s possible to keep these and other chronic problems in check, helping you live the life you love.

Traveler’s health services

If you frequently travel abroad for work or leisure, it’s important to receive certain immunizations to protect your health. The team at Ridgway Center for Whole Health regularly provides consultations for international travel and can make prescription and vaccination recommendations.

Functional Medicine Services

We invite you to Join our practice or schedule a meet & greet with Shirley Olson,NP-C our Functional Medicine Specialist!

What is Functional Medicine?

Personalized – You are a unique individual, and therefore so is your treatment plan. Root Cause approach – This requires a deeper look and gathering more information than you may have experienced previously. Natural Medicine – Our bodies require proper nutrients, exercise, and healthy stress management skills to heal properly. Comprehensive – There are almost always multiple factors causing imbalances which create illness. We must address each one to create balance. Cutting Edge – While using current research-based methodologies to guide our journey to wellness, we are also forward thinking in how we approach the end result.

Personalized Treatment Strategies

Thorough Review – Our first objective is to obtain a full history and try to piece together what brought you to this place. During your initial consultation, we conduct a thorough review of your Your Story – Our functional approach looks at both the physical events as well as the life events such as stress and family circumstances that play a role in overall health and well-being. Like putting together a puzzle, every piece is valuable. This is why we look closely at your story. Comprehensive Flexible Plan – A comprehensive plan will be presented to you which may include specialized or basic labs, imaging, or referral for needed screenings or specialist. We realize your financial concerns and busy schedule might need to be included as part of your plan and will be sensitive to this.

Bredesen Protocol

We have partnered with Apollo Health to offer the only Bredesen-approved protocol. AHNP programs are designed to fit anyone, whether you’re already showing symptoms or simply hoping to prevent them. The personalized report ReCODE identifies the source and subtype of your cognitive decline and provides solutions to prevent or reverse early symptoms.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)

Individuals over the age of 30 can begin to experience hormone imbalance. Over our lifetime, many factors (environmental, stress, genetics) contribute to the natural decline or imbalance of hormones as we age. In order to balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, we will use comprehensive lab testing and in-depth evaluation for your personalized treatment plan. BHRT can be provided via a topical cream, patch, injection (men) or pellet insertion.

Simple and Safe BHRT Pellet Therapy

The cost for this service is discounted for members. Once inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the blood stream whenever the body needs it. This gives the body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when the ovaries and testicles were working normally. Our method utilizes a proprietary Re3PelleDoser to prescribe the precise hormones, specifically for your needs.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Management Tools

Enjoy our mindfulness-based stress management tool Muse in the privacy of your home. If you decide to purchase one, we can offer a 15% discount for Muse to Members who follow this link . Stop by or message us if you would like to try Muse biofeedback stress management tools.
