BioDesign’s Top Doc Discusses Healthcare on Tampa Television Show

Our very own Dr. Matt Lewis is taking part in a 30-minute segment about the state of the healthcare industry, airing this coming Sunday morning, March 24, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on WTOG St. Petersburg/Tampa (CW44 Tampa Bay and channel 504 for HD cable customers). The first segment— entitled “Healthcare Disasters” — is hosted by Kristen Burton and features our own Dr. Lewis and Dr. Jordan Axe, another Tampa area medical practitioner.

As you’ll see when you tune in on Sunday, the two doctors discuss the failures of traditional medicine and how a functional and integrative approach to healthcare can provide long-lasting health benefits to those have been procrastinating when it comes to their own personal health issues.

Dr. Lewis was asked during the segment why so many people suffer chronic illnesses, and he said many of his patients are elderly, with others suffering at least one chronic condition. (He described a chronic health issue as any ailment that continues for three months or longer and won’t go away.) And, he said, traditional medicine cannot continue reading

Detox Deals, Mold Solutions, and Holiday Health Hints

As the title of today’s post suggests, we’ve got a lot to cover in this, one of our final posts of the year, so let’s get right to it. We promised this in last week’s post — BioDesign Wellness is offering an innovative program for the New Year that features a 30-day medically-supervised detox for only $799 (which is much less than our normal $1,900 price for a 60-day program, and includes all the supplements you need, plus three one-on-one coaching sessions).

In order to participate, you need to purchase the detox kit from our office by the cutoff date of Friday, Jan. 18. The kit can be purchased over the phone and mailed to your home or office, or you can stop by and pick it up at our Tampa functional medicine clinic. For questions or further details, please call our patient care coordinator, Lori, at (813) 445-7770.

If you’re not familiar with our detoxification program, please read “Tampa’s Poor Water Quality Calls for Detoxing Twice Annually. That post reveals the results of a government tap water study that cites 20 regions of Florida that contain drinking water with high levels of chromium-6 — which has the ability to cause liver damage, damage nerve tissues, cause skin irritations, and harm the kidney. Among those regions are Tampa and Sarasota, where water quality testing at 10 of 12 water utilities reveal continue reading

Enjoy Thanksgiving but Not to the Point Where You Feel Guilty

Ask anyone — even the staff here at BioDesign Wellness — if it’s okay to overindulge a bit during the holidays. Of course, it is, but notice the emphasis on a bit (it’s italicized because we feel moderation is the key to long-term happiness, especially this holiday season).

If you’re new to our functional medicine practice in Tampa, or even if you’ve been visiting our office for the last year or so, you know how much emphasis we place on maintaining healthy habits one day at a time. Now, when we say one day at a time, you know that what we really mean is the rest of your life. But if you just say, “I’m going to make good food and exercise decisions today,” it seems a little less daunting. And then, of course, we encourage you to say the same thing tomorrow!

In addition to listing our office hours for this year’s Thanksgiving holiday (please see below), we also offer suggestions from an earlier post — this one from over the summer — that point out specific actions you can perform that will keep you on track in your efforts to maintain a healthy gut throughout the holiday season.

Specifically, we recommend continue reading

BioDesign Wellness Center Has Joined the Blogosphere

With this initial post, we here at BioDesign Wellness Center welcome you to our new blog, which we expect will evolve into a valuable source for information about functional medicine and integrative healthcare in the Greater Tampa Bay Area. If you’re already familiar with BioDesign, we think you’ll appreciate the fact that we now have a blog of our own — a place where we can demonstrate our commitment to educate patients and others pursuing answers and solutions to chronic health issues or who simply want to lead healthier lives.

And by educate, we mean this: There is so much confusion and conflicting information out there about medicine and healthcare that people are understandably miffed. If you’re anything like the patients who arrive at our practice by way of a conventional medical organization, you don’t know what to believe or who to turn to with your questions and concerns.

At BioDesign, we help you understand and resolve the underlying cause of your health condition instead of just treating symptoms. We work to help you take control of continue reading
