Feel [ BETTER]
The modern approach to health and wellness is to stay healthy, rather than treat illness
THE FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE APPROACH
Science is evolving rapidly. Every few months, new information is discovered that facilitates how we can help you live better. What this means to you is a total and radical approach to health from what you’re used to. Traditional medicine is sickness based. You need a diagnosis and then take medications to palliate the symptoms. Medicines have side effects. Until then, you feel less than your best but have no solutions to feel better. This is because disease and sickness take time to evolve. With the newest science and cutting edge technology and testing, we are able to find sickness and disease early on, before it is advanced enough to stop you from living well. All sickness and disease leave you with some impairment, be it fatigue, mood issues, weakness, etc. Our patients are keen to live every day powerfully. Not lose days or weeks or months from their life, their family, their work/ career dealing with heart disease, cancer, diabetes, dementia, arthritis, autoimmune disease, obesity and more.
Functional Medicine looks at finding the root cause of your symptoms or disease. We work with your body systems and you as a whole. This means we look at everything, from your biochemistry and genetics, to your mental and spiritual health; to your nutrition and hormone balance. At Better Medical Centre, we combine both the science of wellness medicine and conventional medicine to provide you with the best possible results: your physical, mental, sexual health are all optimized to your youthful best.

What do you specialize in?
We treat all aspects of wellness, including holistic nutrition,hormones naturopathy, acupuncture,and anti-aging from a look and feel perspective.
What is NATUROPATHY
Natural balance of the body requires optimal function of every organ system (eg. good digestion, healthy liver for detoxifying) and the right proportion of vitamins and minerals. Naturopathic medicine is devoted to maintaining health and finding the root cause of any symptom. This is where the most health benefits are found, as simply treating symptoms is no longer acceptable to the well informed man and woman. At Better Medical Centre, we apply principles of naturopathic medicine to support your health. As part of your treatment protocol, you may undergo cleansing for yeast, or detoxifying your liver. We use the intricate knowledge of physiology to safely guide your cleansing. We do not recommend fasting or restrictive diets for cleansing.
Naturopathy can help you live your best and healthiest life
What is HOLISTIC NUTRITION
We don’t believe in diets but we can help you if you have trouble losing weight or maintaining weight. Does it seem like you gain weight simply by looking at food? You’re not alone.
Your body needs nutrients to function optimally. You need the right amount for your body and circumstances. In order to get the nutrients into your body, you need a health digestive system. You need to be able to break down your food and absorb it efficiently. Soon you will be able to fuel every part of your body; and make the hormones you need.
We understand the desire for quick results. We also understand the frustration of working hard at your health and not seeing results.
Consider the comment of Joanne W., Taber, Alberta:
“Look at my flat tummy! I lost 5 pounds and I didn’t do a thing different from what I was doing before….”
How did she do that? Wouldn’t you like to do that? And more?

What is ANTI-AGING
In order to truly ” defy time”, we need to better understand the process of aging. Advances in medical science have identified many processes that accelerate aging; and the onset of the diseases of aging, Anti-aging medicine is devoted to improving the quality and quantity of the human lifespan.
This area of medicine has shown that aging of the body occurs because levels of hormones decline. The body becomes inflamed and can develop many of the diseases that we dread, such as: cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart attacks/ heart disease and arthritis. Our body needs good vitamin and mineral levels, as well as healthy and wholesome food to nourish our cells. This promotes good hormone balance and a low level of inflammation.
We can help you dramatically delay the pain of growing older. You will be able to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every part of it. You will be able to do all the things you ever wanted to do, and without a second thought – whether you desire to go hiking, biking, mountain climbing, embark on an adventure trip , or just participate in sports with your children or grandchildren.
What is ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine contributes to wellness by providing improved energy, circulation and balance within the body. Deep muscle tension and spasm, chronic pain and joint pains are the most common reasons people seek acupuncture. It is also used to promote sleep, reduce anxiety and stress and help with sexual dysfunction. The ancient practice of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, precedes the history of modern medicine. Yet it can still solve many health problems when conventional medicine is unable to provide a solution. In fact, acupuncture treatments for headaches and chronic pain, often first take place due to patient referrals by conventional medical clinics.
If you suffer from chronic pain or the frequent and frightful experience of horrible headaches, learn how acupuncture can help you manage the pain and take control of a better life
