About the Waller Wellness Center
What are your concerns and current health goals? At the Waller Wellness Center we have only one mission-to help you reach your health-related goals. That may involve finding the cause of a symptom or illness and treating it, or it may mean helping you optimize your health in order to slow down and/or reverse the aging process.
In today’s world of integrative medicine there is an ever expanding list of options available to you, and it can get quite confusing. Our goal is to help guide you through the “maze” of possibilities, to find the therapies that are right for you.
Your health and wellness are precious. It’s important that you put your trust in those medical practitioners that have the most expertise and training in both alternative and conventional therapies. Many conventional medical practitioners are “trying their hand” at some alternative medicine practices, but haven’t had adequate training. Make sure that the physician you choose is Board Certified and Fellowship trained in Anti-aging and Functional Medicine.
Dr. Catherine Waller, MD combines traditional medicine with science-based complementary medicine, to create the best of both worlds. The Center offers services to provide a truly comprehensive and holistic approach to healthcare.
Health is a positive vitality.
Health is not simply the absence of disease.
Our approach to health is based on the genetic uniqueness and environmental conditions of each person. Our care is patient centered as opposed to disease centered, meaning that we focus on the person, not the diagnosis. Because the human body functions through web-like connections among physiologic processes, each organ affects other organs; therefore, the entire body must be addressed.
At the Waller Wellness Center, we promote the concept of organ reserve, believing that every organ in one’s body can achieve greater stamina, better recovery from illness, and a longer health span, not just a longer life span. We use emerging research to constantly improve our science-based approach to health care.
To treat each patient functionally and “holistically”, we address eight different imbalances:
- Detoxification, biotransformation, and excretory imbalances
- Digestive, absorptive, and microbiological imbalances
- Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances
- Nutritional and dietary imbalances
- Oxidative stress, mitochondropathy, and redox imbalance
- Immune/Inflammatory imbalances
- Structural imbalances at cellular and whole body levels
- Spiritual/mind/body imbalances including stress
Conventional medicine concentrates its efforts on the treatment of disease. Our approach concentrates on treating the person with a disease. All the information involved in making the diagnosis is important but the most important is information concerning what is unusual about the person who has the disease. What imbalances does the person have that are causing the disease and continue to extend and worsen it?
Many people with health problems have no diagnosis but virtually every patient has had one or more of the eight destructive imbalances that lead to dysfunction. Our approach seeks to create balance. Balance leads to the greatest potential for health for the person with the dysfunction.
