An allergy is the body’s natural reaction to something it views as a harmful “invader.” These foreign “invading” substances are called allergens. An allergic reaction is the way the body responds to a specific allergen. Symptoms of exposure to an allergen, which range from mild to severe, are a result of a chemical called histamine being released. Allergies affect all age groups and all sexes, and most are inherited from one’s parents. At Complete Wellness, we can help you holistically and naturally manage your hormones.
Symptoms: Swelling | Pain | Stiffness | Redness | Decreased Range of Motion
The term “arthritis” simply describes the pain, swelling, and stiffness in joints. There are multiple types of arthritis-related conditions, the most common of which are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Both damage joints in different ways, and symptoms get worse over time. Arthritis can occur in people of all ages, sexes, and races, although the chance of developing it increases with age. At Complete Wellness, we have many natural approaches to slowing the development of arthritis and relieving the pain and discomfort.
Symptoms: Shortness of Breath | Chest Pain or Tightness | Wheezing or Coughing Attacks
Asthma is a condition that affects the lungs in which airways become swollen and narrowed, sometimes producing extra mucus. This makes breathing difficult, but the level of difficulty varies from person to person. For some, asthma can be just a minor annoyance, but for others, it can greatly interfere with daily tasks, and asthma attacks can even be life threatening in some cases. Certain triggers can cause asthma attacks and make the condition worse, but these can often be avoided. Visit Complete Wellness to see if we can help your body function better and reduce the burden of asthma through natural lifestyle changes.

Back pain is very common, and it can range from simply being uncomfortable to debilitating. Typically, back pain is caused by an injury to or misalignment of a muscle or ligament. This often occurs as a result of poor posture, a lack of regular exercise, and poor form when exercising. Back pain can also be caused by other medical conditions and being overweight can increase the risk. At Complete Wellness we have helped thousands of patients relieve back pain and correct the root cause of the pain so that it never comes back.
Symptoms: Paleness | Shaking | Sweating | Headaches| Hunger | Nausea | Irregular Heartbeat | Fatigue
BLOOD SUGAR PROBLEMS
“Glucose is the body’s main source of energy and a critical component of metabolic health. While some glucose comes from the food you eat, your body can also tap into it in the form of glycogen, which is a type of sugar that’s stored in your muscles or liver. When glycogen stores are depleted, the body can also produce glucose through a process called gluconeogenesis.
When you need energy, your cells will first attempt to pull glucose from your bloodstream. For metabolic health, you want to achieve low glycemic variability, meaning that your glucose levels remain fairly steady. Optimally, glucose levels should stay somewhere between 72 mg/dL and 110 mg/dL at all times; your post-meal glucose shouldn’t be more than 30 mg/dL higher from your pre-meal level. (Per the American Diabetes Association, anything below 140mg/dL is normal.)
Chronically high blood glucose can damage your health in several ways. It can lead to insulin resistance—a condition in which your cells stop responding to insulin, the hormone that helps shuttle glucose into the cells for energy. Advanced insulin resistance can ultimately become prediabetes or Type 2diabetes. But it can also contribute to processes such as inflammation, oxidative stress and glycation, which underlie many other chronic diseases, including Alzheimer’s and cancer.
But keeping blood sugar from spiking and then plummeting is important, too: While consistently high blood sugar is well known to be dangerous, research shows that major fluctuations might also be damaging: Scientists from the UK found that people whose blood sugar fluctuated more every six hours had higher levels of of oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction (blood vessel damage)compared to those whose glucose levels stayed steadier throughout the day, and even those who had high but steady glucose.“ Source: https://www.levelshealth.com/blog/the-7-factors-that-significantly-impact-your-blood-sugar
At Complete Wellness we can test your glucose levels and manage them holistically with supplements, diet, lifestyle changes, and more.

Sometimes referred to as celiac sprue, celiac disease is an immune reaction to eating a specific protein found in wheat, barley, and rye called gluten. It is genetic. Consuming a product that contains gluten will damage the small intestine and make it harder for the body to absorb nutrients. Celiac disease affects people differently, with some experiencing only minor discomfort and others experiencing a host of symptoms. The Complete Wellness team, including our functional medicine doctors, nutritionists, and health coaches, can help you.
Symptoms: Aching | Burning | Shooting | Squeezing | Stinging | Throbbing | Stiffness

As the name suggests, digestive disorders affect the digestive tract, which is also called the gastrointestinal(GI) tract. The GI tract is made up of the esophagus, liver, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and both small and large intestines and is responsible for breaking down nutrients so the body can absorb them. There are a variety of digestive disorders, ranging from mild to serious. Our world class team of functional medicine experts can help you naturally relieve and ultimately eliminate digestive issues.

We all get tired at times, but chronic fatigue is a type of fatigue that lasts for several months at a time, doesn’t improve with sleep, and cannot be explained by any underlying condition. This syndrome is also called myalgic encephalomyelitis and can affect many body systems. This condition often prevents people from performing daily tasks, even confining them to a bed. Our team will conduct various tests including hormone, vitamin and mineral levels and help you naturally get your energy back.
Symptoms: Muscle Aches | Soreness | Shooting, Burning, or Stabbing Sensations in the Neck

Using acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, physiatry, stress management, and more we have helped countless patients relieve neck pain and correct the root cause of the pain so that it never comes back.
