Your grandmother was right–you are what you eat! Proper nutrition is a keystone of good health. Dr. Hulsing provides nutritional counseling which may include dietary analysis and recommendations as well as guidance on nutritional supplements, food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, and medication-supplement-nutrient interactions. She will make a nutrition plan that is customized to meet your health goals while taking into account your lifestyle and personality, so you can create sustainable, long-term changes.
Medicinal plants have been used by a multitude of cultures for thousands of years to effectively treat health conditions. In fact, many of the pharmaceuticals currently available contain active compounds that have been isolated from plants. Botanical medicines can be extremely effective therapies when properly administered. It is important to note that plants can also have toxic side effects when improperly used or when mixed with certain medications. Dr. Hulsing is trained in botanical, nutrient, and drug interactions and will ensure that you are safely using botanical medicine, when prescribed, to create the greatest possible benefit.
Making positive changes in the way you live can be an important part of feeling better, but changing habits is often challenging. Dr. Hulsing strives to support and encourage you every step of the way. She creates a non-judgmental environment and works with you to increase the satisfaction and pleasure in your life. Her recommendations are not one-size-fits all but take into account your goals, priorities, and resistance. Lifestyle counseling may include suggestions and techniques for improved sleep, stress management, creating a healthy home and work environment, smoking cessation, and exercise.
Biofeedback is a safe and effective technique that teaches people to improve their health by controlling certain bodily processes that normally happen involuntarily, such as heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and skin temperature. Sensors attached to your skin measure these processes and display them on a monitor. Patients use this information or “feedback” to learn to relax thereby decreasing blood pressure, heart rate, and muscle tension. Stress is often a trigger or aggravating factor in many health conditions so learning to change how the body responds to stress can significantly improve and prevent many health conditions.
Holistic Pelvic Care
Holistic Pelvic Care is for women of all ages to address pelvic symptoms or enhance general wellness through gentle, hands-on pelvic myofascial release and trigger point work. Women with urinary leakage, uterine prolapse, pelvic heaviness or instability, pelvic muscle weakness, pelvic pain, postpartum pelvic issues, and pain with intercourse will benefit from pelvic care work as well as women looking to enhance overall pelvic health. Women have also sought treatment (in conjunction with a counselor) to recover their body from sexual abuse. Additionally, women have received pelvic work while receiving other treatments such as for fertility or cancer support.
Our environment has the power to profoundly shape our health and risk of disease through many avenues including water, air, food, materials, manufactured goods and products we use every day. Understanding the relationship between the environment and health can help you reduce environmental toxins and create a safe environment for you and your family. We can address past exposures through detoxification–improving the body’s ability to remove toxins– and reduce genetic susceptibility to damage from toxins. By addressing past exposure to toxins and creating strategies to avoid future exposures, we can significantly prevent and improve many complex health problems.
Homeopathy was introduced by German Physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago. The system views the body as a synthesis rather than individual organ systems. Homeopathic remedies, which consist of very dilute plant and mineral substances, are chosen based on a combination of an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. When a correct remedy is taken the body is stimulated to heal itself and return to balance. Homeopathy defines health as not merely the absence of disease, but as our ability to reach the highest goal of our existence. It is especially effective for use in children and individuals who cannot tolerate other types of therapy as it is gentle and free of side effects.
