The “How Are You, Really,” Check-up!
Date: Wednesday, July 12, 2017 Thru Date: Saturday, July 15, 2017 (Event Views: 2,067)

The “How Are You, Really,” Check-up!

That nagging pain, that gas and bloating, those recurrent sinus infections, those debilitating migraines, that sore shoulder, that overall feeling of not being well or a lack of energy, that often gets blamed on our age. Well?…your MD says you have to live with them. We say you don’t. Nor do you have to live with pain, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. We have remedies, proven remedies, safe and natural remedies. And we have happy patients who today, are glad that they made an appointment.

Naturopathic physicians are really interested in how you are, overall. They spend at least an hour with each new patient. They take a thorough medical history on you. They inquire about your diet, your digestion, allergies, your job, your stress factors, any chemical exposure; the list goes on and on. Not until they have a thorough history do they start to diagnose and recommend.

Dr. Stephen Piechota has a doctorate in pharmacology and is a Clinical Nutritionists. He has been involved in medicine and health disciplines for over 40 years. “We help you find a new path to better health which can be simply described as a guided system of self-care. We offer professional guidance and we employ the advantages of various health disciplines - herbal therapy, nutrition, homeopathy, ayurvedics, aroma therapy, oriental medicine and many others.” Dr. Steve is available in Bristol on Thursdays and Saturdays and in Waterbury on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

John LeBeau, INHC Orthomolecular Researcher and Holistic Practitioner, offers great insights in alternative health concepts; concentrating on Autoimmune Health Disorders and the microbiome. Some examples include ADHD and autism in children and anxiety, arthritis, cancer and gut disorder in adults. John is available in Bristol on Wednesdays and Saturday afternoon and in Waterbury on Fridays.
