Dr. Anna’s Approach
Most diseases are caused as a result of our environment. It could be bacterial, viral, toxicities, nutrient deficiencies or the role of genetics. Drugs palliate symptoms, but most times it does not always lead to a complete cure. Our approach is to find and remove the stressor that is creating the sickness, work with the patient to achieve balance, and provide the nutrients missing in-order to rejuvenate and build back strength into the body.
