Hope For Allergies and Sinus Infections

"Dr. Brad has helped me in so many ways over the past several years. When I first began treatment with Dr. Brad, I had allergies, chronic sinus infections, and always felt exhausted.

Helping Your Body Overcome Depression or Anxiety

Helping Your Body Overcome Depression or Anxiety

There is hope for depression and anxiety

If you find depression or anxiety to be a part of your everyday life, we want you to know there is so much hope for you and your body. To help your body through anxiety or depression we need to address all aspects of your body: the physical, the mental, and the emotional. All three parts of you play an important role in your body’s overall wellbeing and health.

At Hope Clinic, we will work together to find what aspect of your body needs extra support.

Identifying the support your body needs most

First we’ll want to see what is hindering the physical aspects of your body. What areas of your body might be experiencing inflammation? What are your body’s energy levels like?

If we can get a person’s physical energy up, sometimes this person’s emotional energy will simultaneously get the support it needs, too. But if this doesn’t happen, then we can turn to homeopathy or psychotherapy techniques to help the emotional energy get back in balance.

When a person is struggling with depression or anxiety, most of the time there are life-environment factors negatively affecting the person’s emotional energy. Depending on the needs of your specific body, EMDR, NLP, DBT and other techniques can be extremely helpful psychotherapy options. Sometimes Dr. Brad will refer patients out to exercise classes offering specific techniques to help support your emotional energy. If depression or anxiety have been clinging to your life for awhile, many patients find that homeopathy helps them emerge from longterm depression or anxiety.

Another vital aspect to every human’s emotional health is a good, supportive network. Even if you have a supportive family and a great group of friends, sometimes you may still need support from someone outside your immediate network. Attending a support group or spending one-on-one time with a therapist can be extremely helpful resources for getting a bit of extra support and perspective in your life.

Hope Clinic can help you find the support you need

Regardless of how long you’ve been dealing with anxiety or depression, there is hope. Whether it’s physical, mental, or emotional support, we will work with you to identify the kind of support you need most.

If you don’t know where to start, we invite you to come to our free, monthly Hope Class. Or you are always welcome to call the clinic and schedule an appointment to see Dr. Brad.

Can Hope Clinic Heal My Disease or Condition?

Can Hope Clinic Heal My Disease or Condition?

Can Hope Clinic heal my disease or condition?

With new patients coming through our clinic doors all the time, this is a question we are often asked. From your very first appointment, we want our patients to know that at Hope Clinic we don't cure diseases, instead our goal is to improve how your genetics are expressed. This is called epigenetics.

You see, your body was meant to heal itself. The only reason you are alive right now is because your body is constantly healing and repairing itself. At Hope Clinic we depend entirely on epigenetics to allow the healing process. Almost all of our genetic expression is from a pool of genes—not just from one gene that’s unchangeable.

After millions of dollars of research invested into mapping the human genome that’s why we’re no closer to solving most diseases. The truth is most of those diseases have already been solved. Your body already has a way to heal and repair most conditions.

So how do you stimulate this healing and repair?

That’s a great question. The good news is there are many ways to help stimulate your body to heal and repair itself. Your body is an organism made up of many wonderful and complex facets—you are so much more than just a grouping of several parts.

To help stimulate your body’s healing and repairing, we see if we can find what’s inhibiting your natural healing process and then take away that inhibition. If we can do that then the possibilities for healing and repairing are almost endless.

One thing we do know is your body needs certain things to repair itself. One of those things is appropriate movement like exercise. Another thing your body needs is appropriate building blocks like nutrients. In order to carry out digestion and energy production, you must have the appropriate solvent in the form of water.

Another thing we know about your body is how you think about yourself, the people around you, and your environment all play a role in how your body repairs itself. Believe it or not, the amount of rejection, support, stress, warm fuzzies, laughter, and fear you experience in your daily life also play an important role in your body’s ability to repair.

Your body’s healing process is unique

At Hope Clinic we’ve found that sometimes all it takes is changing one area that’s imbalanced. Other times we’ve had to change multiple areas or support multiple aspects of healing in order for your body to repair itself. You are a unique individual and have become dependent on unique processes in order to heal yourself. We are here to try to help you find what will work for you.

If we can elicit better genetic expression, these positive epigenetics can allow amazing healing to happen.

Why Do You Get Mono? And What You Can Do To Prevent Mono

Why Do You Get Mono? And What You Can Do To Prevent Mono

Have you ever wondered why it seems that people who seek more medical care seem to get mono more often than those who care for themselves? One possibility is the regular use of antibiotics. While antibiotics can be effective against many bacterial infections, the use of antibiotics during viral infections may increase the risk of chronic viral infections including mono.

5 Practical and Natural Ways To Prevent Mono

5 Practical and Natural Ways To Prevent Mono

We are most likely to get mono when our energy system is low and worn out and we are exposed to a virus. When the body’s energy is depleted, it’s much harder for our bodies to fight off a virus like they normally would. This creates a prime environment for a virus to waltz in and set up shop in your spleen. If you are already overly tired, stressed, or lacking energy, then your body is likely too weak to effectively fight off a virus.
