Our Wellness Program
Our Wellness Program is a proactive approach to a lifestyle change.
The program includes education, empowerment, and mentoring. We address the pillars of health and the ability to reverse chronic illnesses.
Our goal is to improve your overall sense of well-being while treating your illness.
We are able to achieve that by ordering the correct tests, determining the underlying cause of the disease, and treating the body as a whole. We will then correct the dysfunction instead of altering the labs by prescribing medications.
As a practicing Internist for over 25 years, Dr. Oganwu is skilled in treating many illnesses and disorders and she offers a wide range of treatments for a variety of diseases and nagging symptoms.
Instead of living with your problem or condition, come see an Internist that will work with you to create a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan to help you achieve optimum health and prevent illness.
For those that are living with pain and even a chronic condition, with the help of Dr. Rita Oganwu, you can learn to live a healthier and happier life.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a system-oriented approach, and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the health care needs of the 21st century by shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach.
Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Practitioners spent time with their patients, listening to their histories, and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic diseases.
In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
WHY DO WE NEED FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
The training received for traditional/conventional health care is geared towards crisis management. This training lacks strategies for the management of complex chronic diseases which includes nutrition, diet, exercise, and addressing environmental exposures to toxins, among others.
HOW IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE DIFFERENT?
Functional Medicine focuses on patient-centered care with an integrative, science-based healthcare approach. Practitioners look upstream to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness.
The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with internal (mind, body, spirit) and external (physical, social, and environmental) factors that affect total functioning.
Integrating best medical practices, functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what is sometimes considered “alternative”, complementary, or integrative medicine. This creates a focus on prevention through different combinations of nutrition, diet, exercise, breakthrough laboratory testing, other diagnostic techniques, prescribed combinations of medications/botanicals/supplements, detoxification programs, and/or stress management techniques.
Most people have heard it so often that they believe it. But the truth of the matter is that aches and pains are your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. And thanks to advanced anti-aging medicine and customized, bioidentical hormone replacement, it doesn't have to be that way. You could be feeling and functioning dramatically better.
Specialized Age Management Medicine for Women and Men
Aging is not always easy, but it doesn't have to be painful. Dr. Oganwu specializes in internal and metabolic medicine, and she offers the latest treatment plans for our aging population. We age primarily because of a decline in our hormone levels. Women go through menopause; men go through andropause. But with safe, customized, bioidentical hormone replacement, you can have dramatic health benefits and counteract many age-related health conditions.
FOOD IS MEDICINE
Proper nutrition promotes growth and repair of tissue.
Nutrition is key when you are trying to prevent infections and boost your immune system, as 80% of the immune system is in the gut.
An anti-inflammatory diet is the key to promoting proper gut integrity. Diets that increase inflammation will not only increase gastrointestinal distress, but will also increase cardiovascular risk, autoimmunity risk, and nearly every other chronic disease mediated by inflammation.
Medical Weight Loss
Medical, Nonsurgical, and Effective
This unique non-surgical weight loss program begins by finding the various metabolic issues that can keep you from losing weight and maintaining your weight loss.
Lack of Exercise
Medication Side Effects
These issues can be corrected with purification and the detoxification of vital organs (liver, kidneys, colon, lymphatic system, skin, and lungs). This leads to weight loss, better digestion, clearer skin, shinier hair, increased energy, fewer headaches, improved mood, decreased sugar cravings, and better mental focus.
We also provide nutritional counseling and information about a balanced diet. We'll discover your individual triggers for overeating and we may prescribe FDA-approved appetite suppressants.
If you have a condition that has not been helped by conventional therapies or treatments - or that you've been told cannot be helped — talk to Dr. Oganwu about possible alternatives such as nutritional and homeopathic medicine.
These alternative therapies can help optimize your overall health and well-being — especially if you have been searching for safe, natural alternatives without the side effects of prescription medications. Alternative medicine provides successful tools for treating acute illnesses, plus complex and chronic conditions, such as asthma and eczema, and autoimmune diseases, including chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
Homeopathic medicine is among the most widely practiced medical disciplines in the world. It has been in clinical use for over 200 years. It is also safe, non-toxic, and without side effects or interactions with other medicines. Homeopathic medications are regulated by the FDA and can be used as the first line of treatment for many acute or chronic conditions.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
If you have been suffering from hot flashes, sleep problems, mood swings, or other physical symptoms associated with menopause or andropause, you may be interested in learning more about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT.
Millions of women suffer from various symptoms, including weight gain and difficulty losing weight, fatigue, thyroid and adrenal gland dysfunction, perimenopause, and menopause. Symptoms associated with these conditions include mood swings, panic attacks, depression, memory lapses, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, urinary tract infections, urinary leakage, and crawling sensations on the skin just to name a few.
WHAT IS ANDROPAUSE?
Andropause is the male equivalent of menopause in females. It is a gradual decline in the male hormone testosterone and an imbalance of other sex hormones. Half of healthy men between the ages 50 and 70 will have testosterone levels below the lowest level seen in healthy men who are 20 to 40 years of age. Low testosterone is associated with fatigue, lack of energy, depression, low or negative mood, and loss of sex drive or libido, erectile difficulties, loss of fitness, joint pain, stiffness, and sleep difficulties among others. These symptoms are effectively treated by replacement with bioidentical hormones titrated to each individual's needs. BHRT improves memory, concentration, energy, and libido while protecting against heart disease.
All the hormones in the body are designed to work together. If one is altered or deficient, it will affect the actions of the other hormones. It is important to have customized hormone replacement if you are experiencing any of the symptoms related to menopause or andropause, including loss of libido for males and females.
