Wildwood Physicians Practice is a medical practice that emphasizes the use of natural remedies in conjunction with lifestyle conditioning practices. As a patient in our practice, you will receive the same supportive care that our lifestyle guests enjoy. We offer the advantages of modern medical resources combined with natural, proven methods of treatment.
“ You may make an appointment with our physicians through our practice office. You have access to the EKG, X-ray, and laboratory services as well as treatment by our highly trained physicians, physicians assistant, and nurse practitioners. You also have access to our hydrotherapy, massage and spa services as prescribed by our doctors.”
Our Physicians Practice will be accepting Medicare insurance beginning in June 2014. Applications of other insurance carriers are in the process of being submitted. If you are not covered by Medicare, we must request payments for your physician’s visit plus any additional cost including lab, x-ray, hydrotherapy treatments, massage etc. You may submit these charges to your insurance company for reimbursement according to your plan.
Treatments We Use
Our skilled physicians are able to prescribe any conventional medication, but, of course, they prefer and take pride in using natural remedies and prayer for the recovery of our patients. We offer a wide selection of treatments and have had great success in the use of hydrotherapy, massage, exercise, diet counseling and botanical medicine.
Hydrotherapy is the internal or external use of water in any of its three forms—liquid, steam, or ice—for the treatment of disease or trauma. We have the capacity to give over 30 different types of hydrotherapy treatments, including:
- Steam baths
- Hot and cold showers
The treatments may last anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the condition of the patient and the severity of the case.
Diet counseling is an important part of the treatment of all of our patients. It is a well-established truth that there is a direct link between diet and health. If prescribed by your physician, you will be interviewed about your previous nutritional choices and receive feedback and advice on what dietary plan is best for enhancing healing and boosting your immune system.
Massage helps the circulation, aids in relaxation, relieves tight, hurting muscles, improves the immune system, and brings fresh blood to the areas needed. Massage is combined with the hydrotherapy treatment to give maximum health benefits to our patients. We have a comfortable spa that is equipped with massage tables and special oils for our guests’ different needs.
Botanical medicine is the use of plants as an aid to healing. Plants are used for their medicinal values, especially in stimulating the immune system and quickening your recovery. Botanical medicine offers the benefits of drugs without the marked side effects.
Exercise is invaluable in promoting wellness, resistance to disease, and recovery from disease. One common feature of many chronic diseases is that the ability of the “power plants” of cells to produce energy is compromised. This is known as a “mitochondrial deficiency,” and it is a condition that is involved in chronic conditions such as:
- Congestive heart failure
- And many others
The good news is that regular exercise increases the number and relative volume of these powerhouses in skeletal muscle. Regular, moderate aerobic exercise slows the heart rate, lowers triglycerides, elevates HDL (the “good” cholesterol), keeps the arteries elastic, and increases the number and efficiency of white blood cells that help the body combat viruses and cancer more successfully.
At Wildwood, your physician will first evaluate your fitness level and then recommend a course of the best form of exercise known – terrain therapy – also known as “walking.” From flat walkways to rolling hills, Wildwood has a delightful variety of trails and routes to accommodate a wide range of physical abilities. If you are unsteady on your feet, we have parallel bars and a physical therapist to help you regain better balance. In addition, we provide daily stretching exercises under the supervision of a trained instructor, and you have the additional option of working out in the exercise room using resistance exercises should you so choose. If you’re still feeling unmotivated, your personal lifestyle coach is never far away to offer that timely support and encouragement!
