Your health program may involve what best fits your needs such as:


1) Nutrition and Supplementation; There are many situations which may improve with natural foods or supplements such as vitamins or amino acids. We are currently using urine tests to guide us in choosing such therapies and are having good results with the treatment of anxiety, depression, and fatigue. We also use standard blood work to make sure we are not overlooking a thyroid problem, anemia, or Vitamin D deficiency etc.


2) Energy Medicine: such as homeopathy and flower essences. We also have seasoned acupuncturists on site (see articles for an explanation of these therapies)


3) Stress Reduction Techniques: there are many types of awareness exercises for relaxing the body and calming and focusing the mind, including breathing and meditation techniques.


4) Counseling and Psychotherapy: Dr Gore draws from his training and experience with analytic and gestalt therapies as well as being influenced through the eastern Yogic, and Hebraic traditions in order to help individuals or couples improve their  health, happiness, and sense of well being.


5) Spirituality: There are practical ways of connecting to the higher part of oneself, such as being able to tap into your intuition and inner guidance, or feeling fulfilled in your daily activities  and  realizing your unique purpose in life. We may use the modalities of therapy, contemplation, and meditation to bring this about.
