Proactive Disease Prevention
Jun 24, 2012 11:28AM
At Dean Wellness Institute (DWI) the focus is on disease prevention and holistic treatment. The practitioners at DWI, Dr. Melissa Dean, Dr. Mark Zimmerman and Cathy Cheries, PA-C, believe that things such as nutrition and hormone balancing can help the body repair and maintain its integrity. They say that many common diseases can be linked to a failure in the immune system and/or a chronic inflammatory state.
At DWI, customized nutricueticals can be compounded for each patient based upon their specific needs and deficiencies after evaluating nutritional, antioxidant and hormonal status. Heavy metal testing is also recommended. “Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancers evolve over years,” says Dr. Dean. “If testing is done that can reveal the deficiencies early, the course of the disease can be altered or prevented. It is a proactive approach to personal health.”
There is also IV nutritional support available for cancer patients as well as those suffering from adrenal fatigue.
After many years of study, to include a Master’s Degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine, Dr. Dean is proud to make this testing and medical model available to the general public. All the practitioners at DWI have had further study in the fields of chelation therapy, bioidentical hormone balancing and heavy metal testing.
