Primary Care Membership Medicine

The foundation of the Wellness First practice is its commitment to offering primary care that is both comprehensive and personalized.  The doctors believe in an approach that incorporates the best of conventional medicine along with functional medicine principles. With your Wellness First membership, you have longer appointments, same-day visits, 24/7 access to the on-call physician, in-house laboratory testing, integrative treatment plans and a fully-trained medical staff that go above and beyond for their patients. Let us partner with you on your journey to health and wholeness.

Advanced Functional Testing

Wellness First offers innovative, leading-edge testing for cardiovascular and neurologic disorders.  These modalities can provide a means to diagnose issues prior to disease onset, as well as monitor the progression/regression of active disease.

IV Nutrient Therapy

In our IV suite, patients receive high-dose vitamins, minerals and antioxidants intravenously for maximum absorption. IV nutrient therapy allows for 100% utilization by the tissues to promote healing, reduce inflammation, promote efficient energy consumption, replace nutrient deficiencies and create balance within the immune system.

Chelation Therapy

Wellness First also offers oral and IV chelation therapy to remove heavy metals from the body.  Toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead and arsenic are common sources that can cause or exacerbate various chronic illnesses including cardiovascular disease, progressive neurologic disease, autoimmune disease, and more.

IV Ozone + Prolozone®

Ozone therapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body.  Wellness First is certified to offer both blood ozone intravenously (Major Autohemotherapy or MAH) and Prolozone® (prolotherapy + ozone).  MAH has been studied and shown to be beneficial in cases of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic viral illnesses, chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis. Prolozone is a regenerative treatment and technique wherein a combination of nutrients and ozone gas are injected into an injured joint or muscle to promote healing and correction of the underlying injury or problem.

Ten Pass Ozone Therapy

Ozone, or 03, is a highly reactive form of oxygen that acts as an oxidative agent in the body.  When introduced into the bloodstream or tissues, ozone interacts with amino acids and lipids to form peroxides (aka ozonides).  Ozonides work by restoring the body’s own antioxidative buffering systems, which ultimately reduces oxidative stress and improves cellular oxygen utilization.  Additionally, ozone stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells, thus increasing tissue oxygenation and ATP (energy) production.  We also see immune-modulating effects and an increase in the production of growth factors for tissue repair.

As you might imagine, the clinical applications of ozone therapy, therefore, are vast and include the treatment of cardiovascular disease, chronic pain, chronic fatigue/adrenal exhaustion, chronic illnesses (i.e., long-haul COVID, Epstein Barr Virus and Lyme), autoimmune disease, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, degenerative joint disease, neurodegenerative disease and cancer.  It is also an acceptable and desired treatment for anti-aging and longevity.

Ten Pass is a multi-pass treatment, where we are able to ozonate a greater circulating volume of blood during one treatment.  This creates a more pronounced response in the body with greater therapeutic effect.
