Weight Loss

Weight Loss

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. Others may want to explore faster fad diets. It’s important to look at the “big picture” of weight loss rather than concentrate on individual foods or your last meal.


The Transformation 360 (weight‐loss, pre‐diabetes/diabetes reversal) program is based on a protein-sparing diet that promises to never leave you feeling hungry, is completely safe, and is easily maintainable. 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.

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.


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.

 

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.

Saliva Hormone Testing

Cardiovascular Health & Lymphatic System

Cardiovascular Health and Lymphatic System (Transport)

These days, many people struggle with high blood pressure and/or irregular heartbeat.

While these symptoms are very common in America, most people do not know how to control them without medication. After looking at your medical and family history, Calmglow can help you understand why you might be suffering chest pain, high cholesterol, poor circulation, and any other cardiovascular issues and most importantly, help you feel better.

More often than not, a healthy heart can be achieved with a nutrient-rich diet, natural supplements, and regular exercise. If you’re tired of taking blood pressure medication, give us a call. We look forward to helping you approach your symptoms in a more effective and different way—an approach that’s free of medication and focuses on an improved lifestyle.

Detoxification

Detoxification (Biotransformation)

When toxins accumulate in the body, things start to go awry. If you suffer from ear pain, loss of peripheral vision, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, joint pain, twitching, or any such symptoms, you might have some toxins that have built up in your body. 

Biotransformation is the conversion of toxic substances to non-toxic substances. While this process takes place primarily in two sites—the liver and the intestinal mucosal wall—many systems of the body are involved. The body has some very intricate processes to deal with all the substances to which we are exposed — from our food to environmental chemicals, hormones, and pesticides.

In your customized detox program, we will reduce the burden on the digestive system and liver, while supporting our body with the proper vitamins and minerals through a nutrient-rich diet and supplements. This often starts with determining if your body’s detoxification pathways are able to undergo the burden of a detoxification program, followed by reducing the amount and types of foods eaten. We also encourage good hydration for an effective detoxification.

Immune System

Immune System (Defense and Repair)

When something isn’t right, your immune system responds with inflammation. Inflammation is a natural, life-saving response from your body—whether you’re suffering from a cut or scrape, a cold, or a chronic illness.

Your immune system is integral to your overall health and well-being. When your immune system isn’t functioning properly, you might experience arthritis, eczema, obesity, depression, Parkinsons, cancer, or a number of other diseases. This shows just how intertwined immunity and inflammation is with all aspects of the body.

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!
