Together we can design a treatment plan custom-designed for
you. Dr. Brainerd offers the following therapies:
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a non-invasive treatment that addresses the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. Allergies and sensitivities are caused by an error: the body is responding inappropriately to a harmless substance. AAT treats the overreaction by reducing the stress on the body in relation to the offending substance, creating a positive association so that the body may respond more appropriately. The treatment is safe, painless and available to all ages including infants.
For more information, see the link for Advanced Allergy Therapeutics on the Home page.
Clinical nutrition employs the use of vitamins, minerals and other supplements to correct the body's biochemistry and restore balance.
Botanical medicine uses the natural power of plants to support the healing process, help detoxify the body, enhance function and restore balance. Herbs are used individually and in combinations. Bach Flower Remedies, a form of energetic flower therapy, are also used to help restore emotional balance.
Diet and Lifestyle Counseling
Counseling about healthy diet, exercise, stress management and other lifestyle choices will give you tools to use for lifelong health maintenance.
Acupuncture has been used successfully for thousands of years to relieve pain and discomfort and rebalance the body through the use of extremely fine needles to remove blockages to the body's energy. See Health Notes for more information.
Bowen Therapy is an Australian-based form of bodywork using gentle moves that stimulate energy flow and aim to re-educate the autonomic nervous system, empowering the body's own resources to heal itself. It is thought to work on both structural and energetic levels. Relief from chronic pain is often experienced in as little as three sessions. See Health Notes for more information.
Far infrafred sauna therapy for
Far Infrared Sauna therapy can effectively produce sweating and remove toxins at a lower temperature than conventional steam saunas. Typically a session lasts for 30 or 60 minutes, but the number and length of sessions depends upon your individual needs. For general health maintenance, to rid your body of chemicals we are all exposed to on a daily basis, a program of cleansing including diet and saunas twice a year is recommended. If you are chemically sensitive or have had extensive exposure to chemicals, a more comprehensive program may need to be designed. See Health Notes for more information.
Customized cleansing programs
Customized cleanses may include juice fasts, hypoallergenic diets, elimination diets, sauna sessions, or a combination based on your individual needs.
We have a natural pharmacy in the clinic for your convenience. It is stocked with the highest-quality items so that your treatment plan will have the highest possibility of success. These include vitamins, minerals, botanical formulas, glandular products, homeopathic preparations, and Bach flower remedies, as well as other natural supplements.
