Your Key to Lifelong Health and Vitality
Lifelong health and vitality is our birthright. Few of us know why we lose it or how to get it back.
At The UltraWellness Center, we are committed to helping you reach optimal health by identifying each person’s unique underlying causes of disease and treating them. Diet and lifestyle modifications, in combination with nutritional and specialized testing, nutritional supplementation, and medications are used to address everyone’s individual needs, from creating wellness to treating chronic, complex medical problems.

At The UltraWellness Center we practice a new model of medicine that incorporates all the best diagnostic tools and technologies from conventional medicine, as well as emerging tests and tools that help us identify the critical imbalances that are at the root of all illness. We practice patient centered, not disease centered medicine.

Leading edge research has provided a new method of diagnosis and treatment, called Systems or Functional Medicine. By understanding the core systems in the body, how they become imbalanced, and how to restore balance, most chronic illnesses can be prevented or cured. This is not alternative or even integrative medicine. Functional medicine is the medicine of the future available now.

At The UltraWellness Center, all the physicians are board certified in Family Practice and are trained in functional, integrative and nutritional medicine. Our nutritionists have specialized training in using food as a medical therapy. Our physicians, nutritionists and nurses work together closely as a team and utilize a comprehensive approach to health.

OUR WISH is to have everyone say, "I didn't know I could feel this good."
