Medical problems that respond well to this approach include:
When I meet with a patient, we discuss all their medical problems and past treatments, as well as lifestyle, nutrition, stress management, and any other concerns.
Integrative medicine offers a variety of treatments that can help patients heal at any stage of illness, and can be especially important for prevention of disease.
I’ll follow up this post with a look at treatment options and where integrative services are offered. If you need more information in the meantime, call (920) 223-7366.

I was not even sure I could do this and had mixed feelings about accepting this task. As I mulled it around in my head, I began to envision the fun it could be and the benefits that could arise from it. For the last 17 years I have worked at NurseDirect and have helped countless people with hundreds of health concerns, one family at a time. It has been incredibly rewarding. With this blog, it will be possible to share these same concerns over a wider audience.
So, with all that in mind, I am ready to begin blogging! I am interested in blogging about health topics that are “in season.” Sunburns and bee stings in the summer, influenza and vaccines in the fall, and frostbite, colds and flu in the winter. With the original purpose being informational, but as a bonus- a format for discussion, questions, and of course some fun banter; could make this blog a whole lot of fun! And, as always, you can certainly call NurseDirect 24/7 at (920) 738-2230 with any health questions!
So, and I cant resist saying it…post a comment on my blog and let me know what you would like to hear about!
