DOCTOR’S ORDERS AKA SERVICES OFFERED
If you’re like, wait, what is that again? Don’t worry, it’s not a dumb question.
In a nutshell, it’s all about addressing the root causes of illness and then using natural therapies to promote health and healing. You’ve probably heard the terms “alternative health” thrown around a lot in reference to conventional healthcare models. As naturopathic physicians, we marry (or integrate) standard medical diagnostic with a broad range of natural therapies. You could say it’s the best of both worlds. Most people just say, “Oh my God, I feel so much better.”
If meditation training and physiologic data had a baby, and that baby helped you heal your stress, anxiety or pain ... yeah, Biofeedback would be that.
Using sensors and real time computer analysis, Biofeedback shows patients their heart rate, muscle tension, respiration rate, temperature and sweat production to help them learn to mindfully control their body’s reaction to stressors. This one on one service is led by Dr. Pabst who has over 15 years of experience in Biofeedback Therapy and holds a Doctor of Psychology. This mindfullness training is excellent for people who have high-performance occupations, such as lawyers, doctors, athletes and performers but is also beneficial for children. Peace out, anxiety, pain and stress.

Yoga may cause possible side effects. Common side effects may include:
- Calming your mind and reducing stress
- Building strength and increasing range of motion
- Better balance and flexibility (body and mind)
- Boosting your immune system
- Being a nicer human
Really, yoga is your prescription for vitality, optimal wellness and improved overall health. With customized instruction and individualized attention, you can learn to practice safely in a supportive environment with an experienced teacher. Side effects may double when combined with essential oils, reiki and other healing modalities. Potential long-term effects of practicing yoga can include happiness and a more balanced life.
You eat what you consider a healthy diet. (Or maybe you don’t and you need help here too.) What you’re dying to know is this: what should I eat? You’ve probably read blog posts, heard from friends, and maybe even tried a Whole30 month or two. It all boils down to this: you’re confused. And also curious. On top of confusion and curiosity, you have some chronic health issues that you think might be related to food choices. Is there a way to find out what I should and should not eat? We’ve developed a streamlined process to figuring that out.
Detox and Cleansing
It’s no secret that our world is loaded with toxins. Our bodies do a pretty good job of getting rid of the junk we are exposed to on a daily basis. But, what happens when junk in is the rule, rather than exception? We’ve found that is precisely when you could use a reset. A little reboot. A little reminder. Think of our program as a way to get your nutrition and mindest around food and lifestyle choices back into cruise control.

Sauna Therapy involves an infrared sauna to improve and heal a variety of issues. It's known to:
- Increase the healing process and improve the immune system
- Address chronic skin problems like eczema, hormonal acne and psoriasis
- Help with musculoskeletal pain
- Speed up the breakdown of fat cells and liberate toxins (up to 600 calories can be burned in a 30 minute treatment)
- Improve brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in patients with neurological disorders
Basically, this sauna can improve almost anything short of fixing your marriage. With environmentally-sensitive and chemically-sensitive patients in mind, we chose the best sauna on the market in terms of non-toxic standards. Think: no toxic glues, varnishes or paints made of low-reactive wood (poplar wood) and a very low EMF. Also think: the healthiest sauna experience in Chicago.
You’ll notice that no blanket statements (“Just be vegan!”) were prescribed in the making of our services. That’s one of those alternative health stereotypes we’re trying to shake. Our jam? Solutions rooted in biochemical and genetic individuality. Because there’s (so much) more to you than your symptoms and one solution rarely fits all.
