At en Health Matters, Dr. Natasha Thomas blends the traditional practice of internal medicine with the innovative approaches of integrative medicine to go beyond the current disease-focused model of health care to a preventative wellness-focused model. The best treatment for any illness is prevention!
The integrative medicine approach requires an equal commitment from the patient and the physician as partners in the health and healing process. At en Health Matters, Dr. Thomas works together with patients to create the best possible level of wellness. A few of the many factors that contribute to wellness (or decrease it!) include: nutrition, hormone balance, exercise, genetics, lifestyle choices, exposure to environmental toxins (pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals, biotoxins), sleep patterns, and stress. Dr. Thomas looks at the whole person and all aspects that may be contributing to any existing symptoms but also which evidence-based treatments and recommendations will bring that individual person to a state of true health.
An important part of integrative medicine is understanding how the factors listed above disrupt the natural or innate healing ability of the body and allow damage to occur all the way down to the structures inside the body’s cells. Over time, this cell-level damage contributes to disease and aging. Together, we can implement positive changes that prevent additional damage and in many cases, heal and reverse existing damage. The body is designed to heal itself – this is an innate ability we are all born with – integrative and anti-aging medicine uses natural and science-proven treatments to support this innate healing process.
Biotoxin Illness Treatment
Another core focus at en Health Matters is the diagnosis and treatment of biotoxin-related illness. The humid sub-tropical climate along the coast of the Carolinas and Georgia is ideal for the growth of mold. Frequent and heavy rain, along with tropical storms, hurricanes, and flooding contribute to water damage in all different types of buildings. Both a mold-friendly climate and water damaged buildings are risk factors for developing biotoxin illness that are very prevalent in our area. The signs of biotoxin illness can be difficult to spot for mainstream providers, often leaving patients going from doctor to doctor to doctor with no real answers. As a Shoemaker Protocol Certified Physician, Dr. Thomas is specially-trained to identify and treat biotoxin illness.
