Cutting edge. Outside the box

Methylation lab tests - anxiety, depression, ADD, agoraphobia & more

For more than 16 months, Dr Crowe and the medical team have been looking into research about how our body's genetics break down and use nutrients -- and the relationship to anxiety, depression ADD, ADHD, agoraphobia, autism, anorexia, bi-polar disorder and other behavior issues.

They invested much of  2016 & 2017, including extensive CE Chicago seminars at the Walsh Institue -- focusing on how new lab tests identify genetic errors that can be treated with alternatives and/or fewer psychiatric medications.  Overall about 25% say "changed my life", 25% say "helps a lot", 25% say "helps somewhat", and 25% "meh".   Call us to discuss.

ALCAT inflamation testing - IBS, Crohns

This is more than allergy testing.  Some patients have extreme inflammatory reactions to certain foods, chemicals, medications and environmental molds/toxins.   You get a personalized list and nutritional guidance like the partial list from an actual patient shown here.


The ALCAT test is a step beyond the usual answers, and we've found it to be helpful for patients trying to manage intestinal, bowel issues such as IBS, Crohns, and other whole-body immune response problems.

Quantitative EEG Brain Mapping (and local treatment)

A qEEG assessment identifies brain regions with irregular and inefficient electrical networks.  These are indicators of a brain network dysfunction - which can manefest as unusual levels of anxiety, stress, ADD, depression and other psychological behaviors
 

These areas that are not optimally functioning may cause symptoms based on the function of the brain region/waves affected.   We have found treatment effective for our patients with CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), concussion, Parkinsons or brain trauma.
 

The military also uses this approach to treat PTSD.  We often refer our patients to a local treatment center.

We prefer ER or combat-trained medical staff

We never know where we may be treating a patient:  on a mountain top, laying on the floor in their home, even a stunt person or actor on the side of the road.  We like members of this medical staff to be adaptable and able to treat a patient in a wide variety of situations.  Imagine Emergency Room skills with Family Practice board certification.


Any time.  Any place.  It's more than a passing thought for our staff


Then...  We only hire those who really listen well and communicate with families.

Tiny cutting edge equipment

We are still searching for Dr. McCoy''s medical "Tricorder" from the Starship Enterprise.  


Until we find it, we look long and hard for the smallest, most effective, FDA approved diagnostic equipment.  


We own the world's smallest ECG machine (about the size of two packs of playing cards).


Our new tiny Ultrasound machine allows better middle of the night assessment of suspected pneumonia, urinary retention and other issues in your home -- without transport to the hospital.  It's about the size of four sticks of butter.  Even we were impressed. (photo above)

We see the whole patient

Many specialists only look at their piece of the puzzle.  If the problem is not inside their specialty, then it's referred or left for someone else to figure out.


Because we look for Family practice or Internal medicine, along with ER or trauma experience, our staff always circles back to "the big picture" with patients and families.


This approach is especially helpful to our compelx patients.  


Of course, we will sitll help even if yours is an easy case
