Pain Management

Pain Management

When you feel pain, your body is sending you a signal you shouldn’t ignore. Pain is subject to many factors, including memories, expectations and emotions. The good news is that you can do something about all different kinds of pain – from simple to chronic.

  • Massage. Find a massage therapist to relax any muscles in spasm to increase circulation. Consider purchasing books on self or couples massage, and practice techniques with a friend.
  • Mental Health. Consider working with a mental health practitioner who has pain management skills.
  • Keep a diary. Record your level of pain every hour and see how it is related to the time of day, your mood, fatigue, stress, and what you are doing.
  • Make pain your friend. Once you hear and understand the basis of your pain, you may regain control of the pain and of your life.
  • Relax your body. The medical evidence is strong that relaxation techniques can reduce chronic pain.
  • Exercise. Movement distracts you from pain and helps your body to release endorphins – natural painkillers
  • Meditate. If you are constantly thinking about your pain, meditation can help you. Meditators often realize you can control you pain.
  • Use guided imagery. Work with a trained professional, or purchase a book or tape.
  • Nurture yourself. At least half an hour a day doing some activity that gives you pleasure. Rediscover how joyful your body can feel.

 

Water. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. Pain is sometimes due to simple dehydration.

Allergy Testing

Allergy Testing 

Food Allergies

People are frequently allergic to many things they eat or drink, often without realizing it. Allergic responses vary in severity. Reactions range from simple fatigue or skin rashes to life-threatening respiratory problems. Food allergies can also interfere with daily functioning.

Eating the same food can cause different reactions at different times depending on a variety of physical and psychological factors. The most common food allergies are: milk, wheat, corn, tomatoes, soy, chocolate, beef, and peanuts.

If you experience any physical or mental reactions after eating, consider being tested for food allergies. These sensitivities are highly individual, and range from small reactions to large ones. They can be felt right after eating, or even two to three days later.

Calmglow can help you identify and eliminate these foods from your diet. Once your allergies are identified, Calmglow will help wean you from these foods over 2-4 months. After that time, the food allergy is typically eliminated, and these foods can be carefully reintroduced to your diet.


 

Environmental Allergies

One in four Americans suffers from allergies. Some of the most common symptoms include: sneezing, watery or itchy eyes, runny or congested nose, asthma, eczema or hives, headaches, muscle and joint pain, and hyperactivity. Don’t let these allergies cut into the quality of your life! There could be a simple solution for you.

There is an alternative to partially-effective medications and time-consuming trips for allergy shots. People of all ages can find fast, lasting relief with under-the-tongue allergy drops that can be taken in the comfort of home.

Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows it’s not easy. 

There are several different ways of addressing weight loss depending on your personality and your health needs. Some may prefer the slower approach of a Mediterranean diet.

The Transformation 360 meal plan is designed to promote body fat loss while maintaining lean muscle mass and healthy body tissues. Your personal program is monitored through a simple at home method. Using simple and tested guidelines, weight management is structured, safe, and consistent. With Transformation 360, you’re sure to gain energy and feel great.

Spiritual

Spiritual

The Oxford dictionary defines spirituality as “of the human spirit or soul, not physical or worldly.”

The way each of us experiences the divine is shown in our individual biochemistries. Research shows that our spirituality is intertwined with our physical bodies. This means that meditation, prayer, yoga, and similar spiritual practices can directly impact our health.

Spirituality can positively impact stress, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. If you’re feeling a lack of purpose, this can also be impacted by your spirituality. At Calmglow, we look forward to showing you the connection between spiritual experiences and your health.

Emotional Wellness

Emotional Wellness

Emotional health, much like mental health, is directly affected by your lifestyle choices. In other words, your lifestyle habits can make a direct impact on your emotional health.

Making room in your schedule for activities like meeting with a friend, going for a walk and getting some fresh air, cooking a meal, or simply lighting a candle and reading a book can be very positive for your emotional health. You might be surprised at the positive effects these habits can have on your mental health. By being more cognizant of your daily routine and habits, you could relieve stress, anxiety, and live more joyfully.

Mental Health

Mental Health

Do you suffer from confusion, poor memory, or the inability to comprehend?

You may be surprised by how much your mental health is affected by your diet and lifestyle choices. Make it a point to go for a walk, sing, dance, take a class, or simply open the windows for natural light and a little fresh air every single day. Calmglow can help you determine the best plan of action to combat these symptoms, including lifestyle habits and diet choices.

Healthy Lifestyle

Healthy Lifestyle

Establishing healthy lifestyle habits is vital to living a fuller, active life. Below are tips for building up these habits from rest to nutrition and relationships.

The best therapy is rest—because you have a finite amount of energy each day, it is important to fine-tune your inner sense of how much energy you have each day. You must restructure your life so that it is possible to stop what you are doing when your body tells you to stop. We recommend adjusting your daily schedule to accommodate your body rhythm. Follow a fixed schedule or going to bed and waking up at the same time each day.

Exercise is powerful—it can improve your mood, and is effective in managing fatigue and pain syndromes. Daily exercise of some kind is essential, as it prevents muscle wasting and it may enhance your immune system.

Good nutrition is vital to health and energy levels. A healthy diet is important for healing and preventing any chronic disease. Ensure that your diet is colorful in vegetables and fruit. Calmglow can help you determine which additional supplements might be needed to support your body—this may include a multivitamin, antioxidant supplements, omega-3s, or other supplements.

Managing stress is important for healing. Find a stress relief technique that works for you—prayer, yoga, deep-breathing, walking, singing, dancing, or anything that brings you joy and allows you to relax. Avoid stressful people and situations as much as possible, and additional herbal supplements might be beneficial as well.

Having supportive relationships in your life is extremely important. Spend your time around people who are understanding and willing to help you when you need it. Avoid negative, unsupportive people, and consider finding a support group as a positive resource and social outlet. Calmglow is happy to address any feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, or any other emotional concerns you might be experiencing.

Digestive System

Digestive System

The human physiological function—that is, all of the physical functions of the body—is directly affected by diet. Food must be properly digested in order for nutrients to be absorbed. When your digestive system is not functioning properly, the results can be nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, weight loss, weight gain, bloating, chest congestion, asthma, shortness of breath, and more. 

Everyone has different nutrient needs based on genetics, age, and even location. In addition, the foods consumed by a person are heavily influence by culture, upbringing, health perceptions, and habits. A diet analysis allows us to determine the amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates you are ingesting, and in turn help us evaluate vitamins, minerals, and nutrient intake. This information is vital to personalizing a nutrition program that is individual to each patient’s specific needs.

Adequate amounts of various nutrients and enzymes is pertinent to a healthy digestive system. A lack of any necessary nutrients can have negative effects on your body. After assessing your diet, Calmglow will offer support to help your digestive system function properly, thus freeing you from the side effects of an improperly functioning digestive system.

Musculoskeletal System

Musculoskeletal System (Structural Integrity)

The musculoskeletal system includes the bones, muscles, and joints that form our limbs, torso, and neck. Any imbalances in your musculoskeletal system can cause aches and pains, among other ailments.

If you’re feeling weak and tired due to joint aches and pains or arthritis, you know how debilitating these symptoms can be on your life. Aches and pains are not the only symptoms that result from structural imbalances, but also eczema or inflammatory bowel disease.

However, the musculoskeletal system is even more connected to your body than you may have ever realized. This system is connected to your immunity, diet and nutrition, stress and energy levels, hormones, mind, and emotions. We look forward to helping you better understand the interconnectivity of your musculoskeletal system and offer help for pain relief and preventative measures.

Endocrine System and Neurotransmitters

Endocrine System and Neurotransmitters (Communication)

If you suffer from autoimmune disorder, neurological disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, adrenal disorders, osteoporosis, or any similar diagnoses, Calmglow can offer you a different solution.

Functional medicine takes a much different approach to the nervous system than mainstream medicine. Looking at the nervous system and all of its parts, functional medicine views it all as intertwined and connected. When looking at the nervous system this way, we are able to evaluate how to best treat the system as a whole, in order for you to live the most vibrant, healthy life.

Bioidentical Hormones

The natural aging process produces subtle changes in adult hormone levels that can have profound effects on health. Women and men who choose conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) are often given prescriptions for pharmaceutical grade, synthetic estradiol or testosterone.

One alternative to conventional HRT is the use of natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Natural hormones are derived from the hormone-like compounds in soybeans and yams. The molecular structure of these compounds is “identical” to human estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Using BHRT is a more natural approach to your health, thus allowing you to feel and live better.

What our
patients
are saying

Always get clarity and understanding…

Dianne has always help me understand the complicated issues of hypothyroidism, understanding the symptoms and long term effects. She has helped with my dietary needs and overall well being. Highly recommend if you are still feeling the symptoms even if your on traditional medications.

—- MC

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

— Cindy Toste

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

— Sarah Hayes

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
