Science and Medicine
People need treatment of their immediate and chronic health problems as well as preventive medicine. Dr. Janson incorporates the latest advances in medicine and nutritional science. Nutrition, stress management and exercise are powerful healing methods.
These basics need to be applied before drugs and surgery to reduce the risks associated with medical treatment. Often, nothing further is necessary. Of course, there is a place for medicines and surgery, and they can be lifesaving. Knowing when not to use them as well as when to use them is a necessary skill for physicians.
Patient Education and Caring
People desire safer treatments, more communication from their doctors, and more participation in their own health care. The word “doctor” comes from a word meaning “teacher.” Educating patients means the doctor becomes an assistant in the healing process. Appointments are scheduled to allow sufficient time for communication between the patient and the doctor. Each new patient is scheduled for up to one hour, and each follow-up one half hour.
Recent scientific evidence strongly supports the vital role of proper nutrition in maintaining good health, treating and preventing disease. While all of us share basic needs, each of us also has unique requirements. Dr. Janson’s individualized programs include gradual dietary changes, selected vitamin and mineral supplements, relaxation techniques, and exercise.
Physical and psychological well being go hand in hand. Chronic stress, emotional turmoil, and personal problems frequently have negative effects on our health. Dr. Janson provides counseling and support to help you cope effectively with daily stress and enhance the quality of your life.
