INTRAVENOUS AND INJECTION THERAPY
Intravenous and injection therapy is a specialized form of medicine that is used, in part, as it bypasses the digestive system ensuring optimal absorption of nutrients. Additionally, IV and injection therapy permits administration of a quantity and range of nutrients that would be difficult to receive from one's diet or oral supplements alone. IV therapy is growing in popularity due to its efficacy in treating a wide variety of conditions including cancer, immune deficiency or chronic illness, chronic fatigue syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and many more. Additionally, IV therapy can be used to help optimize health, preparing athletes before competition and replenishing nutrients afterwards, as a treatment for everyday fatigue and brain fog, to aid in weight loss and blood sugar balancing, to assist the body in detoxification, and to improve sleep.

SPORTS MEDICINE, PHYSICAL MEDICINE AND KINESIO TAPING
Sports medicine and physical medicine are modalities used primarily to treat pain and to restore mobility and range of motion to the body. Dr. Winter uses low-velocity adjustment techniques, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, massage, muscle energy stretching and Kinesio taping—a form of taping that facilitates the body's natural healing process while stabilizing muscles and joints—to reduce pain and help the body heal. Patients find this combination of techniques more effective and gentler than chiropractic adjustments alone. Additionally, other botanical medicines and nutrients can be suggested to decrease pain and inflammation and help with regeneration and healing.
Nutraceuticals, commonly known as supplements, are vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, enzymes or other metabolites that have been rendered into a capsule, powder or liquid form. While nutraceuticals can be used to alleviate symptoms, unlike pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals also have the potential to restore function through supplying the body with necessary precursors for normal physiological processes. Because supplements are not regulated by the FDA, different supplements differ greatly in quality. We only recommend supplement manufacturers of the highest quality that have undergone rigorous third-party testing.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine used widely throughout Europe and India as well as other parts of the world. It gained popularity in the 19th century when its effectiveness was demonstrated against epidemic disease. Through exerting their effects on the physical, mental and emotional planes, homeopathic remedies are the ultimate holistic therapy. Homeopathic remedies may be administered orally or in an injection form.
Botanical medicine is the use of herbs and plants for medicinal purposes. While people have been using plants to treat disease for thousands of years, scientific research is now able to prove the efficacy of botanical medicine for treating disease. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, herbs typically have no side effects if used correctly. Additionally, herbal medicines can be mixed together to create a formulation that is unique to you.
