Today people are dying prematurely and are not achieving optimal health due to the misinformation provided to them regarding the real cause of disease. People today are not aging prematurely because of germs, their genes, or their luck. It's simply not eating the right foods, moving enough, and their thinking.
Our office uses an innovative approach to assessing and treating your health care concerns. Perhaps you have experienced being examined by your doctor, having blood tests done, x-rays or other diagnostic tests taken, only for your doctor to report back that all your tests are normal yet both you and your doctor know that you are anything but normal. Unfortunately this experience is all too common.
Most physicians are trained to look only in specific places for the answers, using the same familiar labs or diagnostic tests. Yet, many causes of illness cannot be found in these places. The usual tests do not look for food allergies, hidden infections, environmental toxins, mold exposures, nutritional deficiencies and metabolic imbalances. New gene testing can uncover underlying genetic predispositions that can be modified through diet, lifestyle, supplements or medications.
Dr. Jurgelewicz uses a variety of innovative testing techniques and procedures to help his patients prevent illness and recover from many chronic and difficult to treat conditions. He is highly skilled in evaluating, assessing and treating chronic problems such as fibromyalgia, fatigue syndromes, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, mood and behavior disorders, memory problems and other chronic, complex conditions. He also focuses on the prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes, dementia, hormonal imbalances and digestive disorders.
Each person's biochemical individuality exerts a major influence on his or her health. The level of nutrient intake that maintains the best possible health is highly variable from person to person. Lifestyle choices and environmental exposures filtered through genetic predisposition are fundamental factors in the expression of disease, and a successful treatment approach must include investigation into these factors.
