Healing Rhythms is a computerized mind body training program which walks you through simple breathing and relaxation exercises while giving the doctor feed back on your heart rate, breathing rate and level of relaxation. How does it work? While laying down in a dimly lit room the doctor applies several small sensors to the tips of your fingers on one hand. She then gets a base reading of your vital signs. Next you will look at the computer screen and follow the simple verbal instructions. The doctor will periodically measure your vital signs during your relaxation exercise. There are over 30 levels of exercises and you may choose to experience each level or practice only a few. The goal is to locate problem areas in your meditative and relaxed states and improve your ability to relax and lower your vital signs. These exercises are colorful, creative and simple to follow.

Specialized Laboratory Testing

Are you concerned about being toxic? The human body operates best when the body is in balance. Vitamin, mineral and hormonal levels are very important to body function and health. A poor diet, stress, lack of sleep and exposure to toxins are just some of the many things that can change the positive balance in the body. Dr. Stemper has several tests that can determine whether your body is out of balance. These tests are simple to use. While there are a few that require a blood sample, many require only saliva, hair or urine samples. The results of these tests will help the doctor determine exactly where your body is out of balance and how best to replace or decrease these imbalances.

Digestive

Do you experience bloating, heart burn, gluten intolerance, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, or chronic yeast infections? Without proper gut flora it is difficult for the body to properly absorb nutrients from the foods that are eaten. An accurate assessment of intestinal flora, digestion, absorption and intestinal function can be examined through a stool sample. This assessment can assist the doctor in making dietary, supplement and digestive aid changes in your diet to improve digestion and elevate your symptoms.

Hormones

Female hormonal imbalances are frequently associated with menopause but they can happen at anytime in a woman’s life. If you are experiencing painful periods, mood swings, memory problems, changes in appetite, difficulty conceiving, changes in sleep or libido you could be experiencing a hormonal imbalance. A simple saliva test can assist the doctor in determining which hormones are out of balance.

Male hormonal imbalances can cause symptoms such as changes in appetite, sleep, mood, endurance, strength, memory, and libido. Hormonal levels for males can be determined with a simple saliva test. The doctor can provide patients with hormonal support to reduce or elevate these symptoms.

Heavy Metal

Elemental imbalances can affect function throughout the body from the brain, kidney and bones to the nerves heart and skin. Headaches, fatigue, loss of sense of smell, insomnia, decreased motor control, dermatitis, and anemia are just a few symptoms that can be caused when heavy metals are out of balance. Direct exposure to heavy metals in industrial areas is only one of the many ways people are exposed to toxins. Many people are exposed to toxins daily in their diets. Our diets can also be poor sources for many of the vitamin and minerals that are necessary to maintain optimal health. Metabolic tests can be preformed using hair, blood and urine. The test results will give the doctor a clear picture of your bodies toxins and deficiencies. Through proper diet and medications these conditions can be reversed.
