Innovative Health, LLC
At Innovative Health our mission is to change the life path of patients to one that provides for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, full of passion and vitality, and ultimately decreases the need for conventional medications and interventions.
Innovative Health utilizes principles of Functional, Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. The key elements of functional medicine include understanding the connections between mind, body and spirit and the integration of systems within our body. This comprehensive approach explains that problems in one area translate to problems for the entire system, and treating just the symptoms will not resolve the underlying cause. We use state-of-the-art testing methods and treat with the most natural methods available, supporting the body with nutraceuticals rather than pharmaceuticals whenever possible.
Innovative Health was founded to help guide patients through the complexities of hormone balance, lifestyle change, and disease prevention. We offer personalized treatment plans that address both acute symptoms as well as long-term strategies that promote longevity by improving and maintaining overall health.
Our Synergistic Approach to Achieving Results and Optimal Wellness include:
Balancing Hormones The body makes over 100 hormones, at Innovative Health we take hormone management to a new and higher level of understanding using metabolic principals and the latest testing methods including, saliva, urine, blood spot, and serum to balance hormones. We offer personalized bioidentical hormone replacement plans.
Managing Stress and Reducing Fatigue According to Johns Hopkins University, the typical American has more stress in 30 days then then their grandparents had in an entire lifetime. We know from research that chronic stress has a tremendous negative impact on our health and can lead to chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal complaints, low libido, insomnia, mood fluctuation, weight gain and much more. With appropriate analysis and testing, we can provide a personalized, comprehensive approach for the management of the stress response.
Natural Weight Loss At Innovative Health we approach weight loss from a Functional Medicine perspective, recognizing that losing weight and keeping it off is difficult if there are imbalances in the body. We provide nutrition and exercise plans that work, without the use of prescription medications, allowing the patient to lose weight and keep it off.
Optimizing Digestive Health – At Innovative Health we work to balance the digestive system. Heartburn, bloating, constipation, diarrhea and abdominal pain are all signs that our digestive system is not in balance. Digestive health also plays a major role in the immune system, detoxification of the body and affecting mood. By balancing the digestive system, we promote a healthy immune system, optimize detoxification and support nutritional uptake and the natural production of hormones.
Naturally Detoxifying the Body We are exposed to toxins continuously through household and yard chemicals, personal care products, and even our drinking water. At Innovative Health, we understand that these everyday toxins cause major imbalances, disease, and even cancer. Using state-of-the-art testing, we can uncover unhealthy toxic burdens and develop plans to support and correct these types of imbalances.
Emphasis on Education and Prevention A patient’s journey to a healthy and sustainable life takes both time and education. At Innovative Health, we understand that change is difficult and are dedicated to guiding our patients on their journeys. In order to provide our patients with on-going support, each patient has online access to our extensive database that contains an educational library, their personalized detailed nutritional plan and individual exercise recommendations.

Medical lab testing including serum blood, saliva and or other diagnostic or screening labs may be required before any treatment is recommended. This ensures that patients receive treatments that are safe and medically indicated.
