Your Environment Could Be a Key Factor in an Unending Cycle of Health Problems

Chronic illnesses of all sorts seem to be on the rise. We believe a major link between poor health and chronic illness are the TOXINS in our environment coming from a variety of sources—air pollutants, pesticides in our food, sunshine without the protective ozone layer, prescribed medications, plastics, cleaning chemicals, and chemicals used to build our homes and workplaces, not to mention noise pollution and the psychological pollution from the media. These chronic illnesses include: allergies and other respiratory problems, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune diseases, emotional depression, anxiety and other behavior disorders, gastrointestinal problems, and neurological disorders. Of course, we respect the genetic predisposition for many of these problems, but we believe the TOXICITY in our environment ignites them and often initiates an unending cycle of health problems in an individual.

An Unbalanced Diet Will Also Contribute to Poor Health

At Squirrel Hill Family Wellness Center, we believe that one diet will not fit all people. We shun the latest dietary fads in favor of developing an individualized approach for each patient. We use the most modern nutritional diagnostic tools to determine each patient’s unique biochemical deficiencies and imbalances. Together we plan a program that you can follow and support you in reaching your goals.

Stress and Lack of Exercise and Recuperative Sleep

Perhaps the greatest factor in physical and mental imbalances is the constant bombardment of stressors of daily life. Most people do not understand or appreciate the value of restorative sleep in repairing your health. At Squirrel Hill Family Wellness Center, we teach effective techniques of relaxation through group and personal sessions. Dr. Berez , Dr. Magan and Dr. Lobur can prescribe an individualized homeopathic remedy that can strengthen your ability to meet and adapt to stress. They also prescribe nutritional and herbal supplements.

Modern Medicine Can Add to the Risks

One of the leading causes of death now are iatrogenic  diseases, i.e. those illnesses caused by reactions to medications, interactions between multiple medications, or nutritional  deficiencies caused by your prescribed medications. Dr. Berez and Dr. Magan specialize in unraveling the causes that lead to the prescription of multiple drugs and slowly withdrawing and replacing them with safer natural alternatives.

Life Threatening Illnesses: A Comprehensive Approach

Dr. Berez and Dr. Magan believe in prevention by early intervention. We examine your risk factors and find an approach to reduce these through respect of environmental, dietary, and lifestyle factors. We use gentle methods of detoxification to maintain your health.
