Are you confident with your health?

Do you think you are too healthy to get an illness?

Think again, because prevention is always better than cure.

No matter how active your lifestyle may be or even if you have no history of certain illnesses, nobody is perfectly healthy. We are all vulnerable to various health risks as well as physical and mental discomforts from time to time. Inner Beauty MD is dedicated to using preventative medicine to help our patients take steps to avoid various diseases particularly:

  • depression and anxiety
  • menopause symptoms
  • metabolic syndrome
  • thyroid disease

Inner Beauty MD strongly promotes preventive health through integrated medicine techniques.

Using integrated medicine solutions, Dr. Englee provides Inner Beauty MD patients with the care needed to prevent many of today’s common diseases and illnesses.  If you find you are already suffering with any one of these diseases, with proper medical care you can help prevent the problem from getting worse.

But what is “integrated medicine”?

Technically speaking, integrative medicine is the unification of the principles, processes, and methods of conventional and alternative medicine.  The main essence of integrative medicine is not to emphasize the merge of two different medical practices but to give importance of treating the patient entirely as a whole.

depression anxiety treatmentDepression and anxiety

Mental illness has become increasingly and alarmingly common these days especially with the drastic changes in everyone’s lifestyles. Depression and anxiety are two of the most common psychiatric disorders that can affect individuals of all ages. Depression restricts a person’s capability to act normally in his family and social circles, while anxiety on the other hand is a result of stress that may eventually lead to a more serious anxiety disorder.  Leaving depression or anxiety untreated can have very negative effects on your life, as well as those around you.  Be sure to seek help from Dr. Englee if you believe you are suffering from depression or anxiety.

Menopause

If you have already reached 50 and just bid farewell to your monthly cycles, you have gone through the menopause stage. Basically all women at ages 50 and older (earlier in some cases) experience this normal biological change. When a woman is no longer fertile it is already impossible for her to become pregnant ever again. Although this is normal to all women, it comes with symptoms that can gravely affect your normal daily life.  And these symptoms include mood swings, sexual health issues, vaginal dryness, and hot flashes, just to name a few. With conventional medicine, treatments are not made available for everyone. But here at Inner Beauty MD, we have developed integrated medicine solutions that are suitable for every menopausal woman in need of professional care and attention.

Metabolic syndrome

Whenever you experience increased blood pressure, excess body fat around the waist, and high blood sugar level all at the same time, then you may be suffering from metabolic syndrome. With such an illness, you become increasingly vulnerable to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.  It is important to seek medical care if you find you have some of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.  If you have already received a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome, seeking treatment using an integrative medicine approach can bring about excellent results.  With the help of an integrated medicine doctor at Inner Beauty MD, metabolic syndrome will be effectively prevented.

Thyroid disease

Your body’s metabolism greatly relies on the health and functioning of your thyroid gland.  There are two basic types of thyroid diseases namely hypothyroidism which refers to an under active thyroid gland and hyperthyroidism which is the other way around. Whether you have a hyper or less active thyroid gland, you will have to deal various annoying and exhaustive symptoms that can include:  

  • faster heart rate
  • losing or gaining weight without even doing anything
  • feeling fatigued
  • getting overly sensitive to heat or cold  

If you are experiencing symptoms that could be associated with thyroid disease, Dr. Englee and Inner Beauty MD has specialized expertise to determine the health of your thyroid gland and effectively treat all aspects of thyroid disease.   Call Inner Beauty MD today at 803-226-0097 to schedule your appointment.
