Nutrition is a process by which our body’s obtain, store and use food for our health, growth, and development. Everyone can benefit from good nutrition, from early childhood to old age. We believe in educating our patients about the ways that a nutrient-dense diet can maximize health, increase energy, manage weight, enhance physical performance, and help the immune system fight off disease. Our nutritional programs correspond to our patients’ health objectives at all stages of life.
Did you know…
that nutrition should be adjusted according to age, gender, and certain life and health factors? For example, a woman who is trying to conceive should be feeding herself nutrients that will prepare her body for pregnancy. During the gestational period, nutritional needs change yet again in order to support an unborn child. And once again, the nutritional intake will need to be adjusted in the post-partum period – especially if a woman decides to breastfeed her baby.

Sports physicals serve as a foundation to safety and health during physical activity. By getting periodic sports physicals – especially before beginning a new sport or fitness routine – you can verify that you are in good health and assess your overall fitness level. Sports physicals are also helpful for identifying underlying conditions that could serve as a predisposition to injury.
Did you know…
that sports physicals are recommended for people of all ages – not just kids and teens? Whether you are a professional athlete or simply looking to start a new fitness routine, you need to be cleared for physical activity by a medical professional. But even if you are approved for sports after your appointment, it is important to listen to your body for cues of exhaustion, overuse or dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after activity, and be sure to wear safety equipment at all times to avoid a health emergency.
Yes. Even the healthiest of athletes need sports physicals before beginning new fitness routines or starting a new sport. Most U.S. states, schools and colleges require sports physicals for participation in sports from year to year.
Your sports physical will include an assessment of your height, weight, flexibility and musculoskeletal health. You’ll also undergo screenings to measure your eyesight and how it coordinates with other parts of your body, such as the hands and feet. Finally, you’ll undergo a cardiovascular evaluation that measures your blood pressure and heart rate. If any problems are detected, you’ll be notified and a recommendation for treatment will be made.
Possibly. If an underlying condition is discovered that could interfere with your ability to participate in sports or other activities, you may need to follow special recommendations to minimize your chances of injury or health complications.
We offer natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) utilizing BioTE’s pellet therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to identically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives. Balancing hormones in this natural way helps patients learn more about this hormone replacement therapy utilizing BioTE’s method of pellet therapy.
What is pellet therapy?
Full Circle Health and Wellness offers bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of subcutaneous pellets. These pellets are inserted into the hip area during an in-office visit after testing has been done to determine the exact quantity of the hormone each patient requires. Every dose is custom created based on your tests to ensure you have the exact number of hormones needed over time.
It is said that bio-identical hormones, such as the ones used by BioTE Medical, work better with the natural chemistry of the body because they most closely replicate the molecular structure of the hormones that naturally occur within the body.
How long do pellets last?
Pellets last between 3 and 6 months depending on gender, weight, absorption rates and the amount of deficiency or surplus of hormones present within the patient at the time of administration. Pellets are reinserted between 2 and 4 times per year to help keep hormones optimized and balanced.
What is the primary advantage to BHRT pellet therapy?
Pellet therapy differs from pills and creams in that it allows for consistent dosing throughout the day. Other administrations of hormones can create a rollercoaster effect for the user as the pills and creams do not release consistent amounts of the hormone throughout the day.

If you are new to the concept of Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, you might be wondering why you’re suddenly hearing so much about it. Why is it being relied upon by professional athletes to CEO’s and most importantly by individuals suffering from various body fatigues?

It replenishes fluids, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids into the bloodstream with 100% availability for cellular use. This results in quicker recovery time and improved overall performance.”
All nutraceuticals and vitamin supplementation carried by our practice must comply with guidelines which are independently studied for quality and purity control.
PRP therapy is a three-step medical treatment in which a patient’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. PRP injections can trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that typically occurs along the top of the head.” In women, this might look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head.
For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient’s response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months.
Platelet Hair growth rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment used for a variety of common orthopedic conditions. PRP is a concentration of platelet cells taken from your blood, and these platelets have growth factors that may help in the healing process of chronic injuries. Growth factors are chemicals that signal the body to initiate a healing response. By injecting PRP into areas of an injury, the hope is to stimulate and optimize your body’s ability to heal the chronic conditions. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, other blood cells important in healing, and growth factors.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy may be used in plastic surgery to promote tissue healing.
Medical Providers first used PRP to help people heal after jaw and plastic surgeries. Examples of tissues that PRP has been used on include Tendons, ligaments and muscles
Ligaments can take time and be difficult to heal, which can make PRP an attractive option for some of those who have experienced injuries to this tissue group.
Inflammation reduction professionals have used PRP to reduce inflammation caused by osteoarthritis. This inflammation can lead to joints becoming painful and stiff.

PDO absorbable Thread Lift procedure to our clients. The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, neck and the body with minimal downtime.
Thread Lift is one the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls and the neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped and older-looking face.
Traditionally, most people would look into plastic surgery to get a facelift as there weren’t very effective noninvasive treatments to lift the loose skin. However, now there is an effective nonsurgical option that can lift and contour and suspend the sagging tissues on the face, neck and the body, especially for those that need only minimal to moderate rejuvenation or for those that do not wish to undergo surgical intervention.
For the right candidate, the Thread Lift can provide a pleasing, natural rejuvenation of the face with the benefit of no general anesthesia, rapid recovery and very minimal cost compared to a facelift or a neck lift. Thread Lift may be combined with other, more minor surgical procedures, such as Botox, Injectable Fillers, Ultherapy, microneedling or skin resurfacing lasers.
Ideal candidates for thread lifts include:
Most popular treatment areas are the brows, cheeks (midface), jowls, and the upper neck. However, Thread Lift can be performed virtually anywhere on the body, such as to lift loose skin on the upper arms, stomach, thighs and around the knees.
