RESTORE - BALANCE - LIVE WELL
OMT is the unique hands-on manual medicine utilized by DO's. There are over 30 different Osteopathic Techniques. Dr. Croft has a very eclectic style. She uses a wide variety of techniques in an individualized way for each patient. Some of the techniques are very subtle connecting with the inherent healing forces (the non-material fields that A. T. Still called “the unnamed forces of healing”) within each person and utilize gentle pressure, while other techniques are more physical. OMT is not painful. OMT is a restorative tool. It can re-establish normal arterial, venous, and lymphatic flow by relieving obstructions; resolve fascial and connective tissue strains; helps coordinate the normal functioning of the nervous system; directly treats dysfunctions relating to the organs or viscera; and stimulates the immune system.
Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle Osteopathic Technique that connects with your subtle inherent healing forces through a detailed contact with the cranial bones and membranes. To utilize Cranial Osteopathy effectively, one must have excellent knowledge of neuroanatomy and cranial bone structure and function. For some problems the entire treatment is a finely tuned cranial adjustment. For other issues, Cranial Osteopathy complements treatment.
Functional Medicine is an approach to health incorporating an in depth personal history and current lifestyles along with advanced laboratory testing to prevent ills and get to the root cause of a condition.
Dr. Croft considers the complex web of interactions in your unique physiology, genetics, lifestyle, emotional and social factors that can contribute to illness. She will empower you to take ownership of your healing.
We'll uncover the root cause of your ills & conditions together.

Epigenetics is the study of how our environment acts upon our unique genes and can contribute to dis-ease.

ETMS CANCER CARE PROTOCOLS
Dr. Croft trained with Donnie Yance learning his ETMS model of cancer care. It is a functional medicine approach examining the factors that allow cancer to arise. We evaluate genetics, environmental, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual factors. Through fingerprinting a tumor, treatments can be customized and side effects diminished or avoided. The primary goal is to bring the body into harmonious balance with non/low-toxic, target-specific, disease-suppressing agents. And to strengthen the immune system, raise stamina, lower inflammation, inhibit metastasis, induce cancer cell suicide, turn off oncogenes, turn on tumor suppressor genes, and reduce multidrug/radiation resistance from developing. This is achieved through clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, supplements, targeted pharmaceuticals, incorporating nature and other mind-body techniques.
PERSONALIZED HERBAL TREATMENTS
Dr. Croft formulates custom herbal prescriptions for any condition. This is an involved process of matching your health needs to specific herbal properties. Dr. Croft trained with world renowned herbalist, David Winston, learning Chinese, Ayurvedic, Western and Cherokee herbs. She generally uses 7-9 herbs in her tea and tincture prescriptions. She can design triune formulas based on William LeSassier's Pythagorean System. Whether it is for gut issues, stress, sleep, pain, energy, endocrine, strengthening your immune system, etc. botanical medicines are effective.
CUSTOM WEIGHTLOSS PROGRAMS
Are you counting calories to lose weight? The majority of weight loss programs have this principle at their core. If you lower caloric intake and increase your activity level, you will lose weight. Is this true? Absolutely! The common solution is to either plan a diet restricting calories or provide pre-packaged food from a box. Here is the problem: regardless of which path you take you will gain what you lost right back. Why? As you lower your caloric intake your metabolism slows. Your body needs calories to fuel itself. So during this restriction it will burn fat or muscle. The problem appears after the weight is lost. Eventually you return to your prior habits, and since your metabolism has nearly bottomed out it can’t process all the food you begin to eat. And those calories get stored right back as fat.
Calories are not the key to losing weight. The most effective way to lose fat is balancing hormones, nutritional deficiencies and neurotransmitters, detoxifying the body, having a diverse gut microbiome, ensuring restorative sleep, & connecting with your mind chatter about your weight & relationship with food. Adjunctive weight loss peptides can be Rx.
We're here to help you succeed once and for all ending the yo-yo cycles and loving your body.

STEM CELL THERAPIES
The power of your own stem cells

BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPIES
Hormones are chemical messengers that control the reproduction system, stress response, regulate sleep, hunger, weight, and emotions. Symptoms can vary widely with hormone disruption. Eating a whole foods based diet and correcting any insulin intolerance or thyroid dysfunction, regular exercise, proper scheduled sleep, replacing identified nutrient deficiencies, balancing any underlying gut dysbiosis,and attention to daily stress management can do a lot in rebalancing hormones. Additional support with bio-identical hormones can often be the final tweak that makes you feel like you again.
