Faithfully Guided Health Center is proud to be Ocala’s premier lifestyle and integrative medicine provider.  We differ from traditional integrative healthcare practices in that we are a faith-based health center, striving to not only serve our clients, but reflect the example of Christ in all dimensions of health.

Our lifestyle and integrative healthcare philosophy centers around caring for the whole person – mind, body and spirt.  Our collaborative approach focuses on physical health, personal growth and empowering our clients to achieve long-lasting, optimal results.

Some of our lifestyle and integrative healthcare services stray away from the traditional medical approach, which often tends to focus on pharmaceutical and drug therapies.  For instance, in traditional medicine, a person who has trouble sleeping at night might be prescribed a sleeping aid.  Lifestyle and integrative medicine takes a different approach in that we work to identify the root cause of the sleeplessness then treat from there.  An individual whose sleeplessness is caused by stress, for example, might benefit from faith-based counseling and/or holy yoga classes vs. taking a potentially addictive sleeping pill that often has side effects.

Let’s take a closer look at two of the lifestyle and integrative healthcare services offered at Faithfully Guided Health Center:

Holy Yoga Classes

While traditional yoga focuses on “self”, holy yoga centers on connecting with Christ.  Our holy yoga classes are designed to help you relax, enhance your physical and spiritual health, and deepen your relationship with Christ. Faithfully Guided Health Center offers regularly scheduled holy yoga classes designed for all ages and skill levels.

Targeted LED Light Therapy

This therapeutic healing technique has proven benefits when it comes to pain relief, cellular repair, inflammation, neuropathy, circulation problems, ligament tears, muscle performance and relaxation. Targeted LED light therapy is safe and painless. The goal is to utilize LED light to deliver healing energy to the body.

How is FGHCs Approach to Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine Different from Traditional Medicine?

Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine

Integrative healthcare, also known as integrative medicine, differs from traditional medicine.  Faithfully Guided Health Center (FGHC) practices a unique type of integrative healthcare that we also refer to as lifestyle medicine. Let’s take a look at how FGHC’s approach to lifestyle and integrative medicine differs from most traditional medicine practices.

Lifestyle and integrative medicine strives to identify the root of the problem

When a patient complains of pain or other symptoms, it’s standard procedure for most primary care physicians to write a prescription.  While drugs can be effective in alleviating symptoms, it is important to investigate the root cause of the symptoms.  FGHC’s lifestyle and integrative medicine practitioners take as much time as needed to identify and treat the actual condition vs. only alleviating symptoms.

Lifestyle and integrative healthcare strives to help patients achieve optimum spiritual, emotional and physical health

Lifestyle and integrative medicine centers on whole body health.  At FGHC, we focus on treating the spirit, mind and body.  Our in-house laboratory allows us to conduct a full range of diagnostic tests to help us gain a better understanding of your physical condition.  We have in-house faith-based counseling practitioners on staff to help you grow both spiritually and emotionally.  Our practitioners consult with one another and work with you to help you achieve optimal spiritual, emotional and physical health.

Lifestyle and integrative healthcare uses a combination of traditional and non-traditional therapies to help patients achieve and maintain overall health

Our healthcare clinicians utilize a variety of modalities to help you achieve and maintain your overall health.  Some patients benefit from restorative therapeutic services such as infrared sauna therapy and targeted LED light therapy.  Others may find it advantageous to take part in fitness and/or holy yoga classes.  FGHC’s approach to lifestyle and integrative healthcare combines non-traditional therapies such as targeted LED light therapy and activities including holy yoga classes with traditional primary care services and diagnostics to help our patients achieve and maintain overall health.

If you are tired of the same old traditional approach to your health, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary tour of our practice.  You can personally meet our lifestyle and integrative healthcare clinicians and faith-based counseling practitioners, observe our infrared sauna therapy room, see our targeted LED light therapy equipment, visit our therapeutic mud bath room, and learn more about our fitness and holy yoga classes.  Give us a call today and take that first step toward optimal health!

How Can Infrared Sauna Therapy Help Me?

Infrared sauna therapy
Infrared sauna therapy is used to cleanse and detoxify the body.  While infrared heat is safe, it is recommended that you only partake in infrared sauna therapy under the supervision of a healthcare professional.  Faithfully Guided Health Center is proud to offer infrared sauna therapy as part of our restorative therapeutic services.

There has been some exciting research recently released on the overall benefits of regular sauna use. The August 2018 journal of Mayo Clinic Proceedings suggests saunas can help reduce the risk of stroke, vascular disease (i.e. high blood pressure) and heart, lung and cognitive related diseases, while easing conditions such as headaches, arthritis and flu.

Faithfully Guided Health Center often recommends infrared sauna therapy as part of an overall wellness plan.  While we customize a wellness plan for each patient, infrared sauna therapy may complement other healthcare services such as Ozone therapy and targeted LED light therapy.

If you are experiencing or have been diagnosed with any of the following,

infrared sauna therapy can benefit you:

  • Pain (chronic or acute)
  • Joint and/or muscle aches
  • Slow metabolism and/or weight problems
  • Cardiovascular issues including high blood pressure
  • Chronic diseases such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Stress
  • Compromised immune system
