Pure Wellness Centers
Hi and thanks for looking.
You can read my official resume' below. Here's a statement about my philosophy:
“My approach is to treat the whole person with natural therapies, emphasizing treating the cause, not just the symptoms. Symptoms are like fire alarms. When a fire alarm goes off you don't turn it off and ignore the fire. The fire is the underlying cause of the disease. Pay attention to your symptoms, but don’t mistake them for the fire. Drugs and surgery do a great job of eliminating symptoms, but fail to address the underlying cause. Toxins, poor organ function, and nutritional deficiencies are usually the cause. A "natural" therapy is one that works with the body, to stimulate and support healing from the inside."
