Many look at the New Year as a time to stop bad behaviors. People pledge to stop smoking, drinking and overeating.

At the Alternative Medicine Center, we like to look at the New Year as a time to start some positive behaviors and ways to enhance health. We offer a vast array of health enhancements that can produce positive results in a short time, reinforcing good behaviors and keeping us moving forward. Here are a few suggestions for getting ON track in the New Year.

Hormone testing: An evaluation of your salivary hormone levels can help determine what changes aging may have caused as the amount of hormones produced and balance can be achieved through plant-source bio-identical supplementation.

Thermography: While used as a substitute for the dangerous radiation of mammography, an infrared scan of the whole body is a good way to evaluate levels of inflammation and indicate proactive steps for treatment.

Toxicity scan: A review of the body’s current state can evaluate levels of toxicity and be a base for homeopathic detoxification and/or nutritional supplementation.

Let’s look ahead positively at the New Year and proceed with a new, preventative path to good health! Location: 2640 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-486-4000. See ad page 18.
