Lifestyle Medicine: A Solution for Mental Health?

If you have ever struggled to get to the root of your mental or health struggles, know that you are not alone.

Group Coaching Programs are Changing the Way Medicine is Practiced

Transformational Group Coaching Programs are transforming disease prevention and improving chronic illness outcomes. We have seen within our medical care system, a huge need for community support, patient- driven care, health education, emotional support, and real time dedicated to attending to patient's needs concerns. Unfortunately, providers often do not have the tools and resources required to deliver such care and are unable to dedicate time required to listen to patients deep needs and address holistic aspects needed for healing. This involves addressing the physical, mental, and emotional facets of health that most healthcare practices are not equipped to deliver.

Most people who suffer from chronic illness have been through several different physicians, specialists, and facilities before ever receiving a diagnosis. Even when they know what illness they are facing, they often complain of receiving very little background information regarding the causes of their disease, and...

Is Infusion Therapy for You?

Thanks to Amy Bryant, Nurse Practitioner, patients have incredible therapeutic opportunities to promote healing of complex chronic issues that many practitioners shy away from. IV infusions are one of the many health tools used at TCLM to resolve chronic metabolic and immune issues. The purpose of IV therapy is to briefly boost vitamin stores in order to support and advance the healing process. IV cocktails are tailored to your specific medical needs. If it is determined that you may benefit from infusion support, IV therapy sessions will be scheduled according to the recommended frequency and duration while being continuously monitored. Infusions consist of specifically tailored vitamins and nutrients to support metabolic, immune, and detoxification pathways. IV cocktails may include but are not limited to, saline for adequate hydration, B vitamins, high-dose vitamin C, glutathione for detoxification, magnesium, carnitine, taurine, and other additional micronutrients. IV cocktails...

What the Body Teaches us about Trauma

What the mind suppresses the body expresses.

Have you ever gone through a painful or traumatic experience and felt it physically in your body? Maybe you thought it was just a coincidence that your muscles started to ache, your stomach felt a bit off, or fatigue suddenly increased around the time of the event.. For some, the emotional impacts may have a delayed physical manifestation. Though it may seem coincidental, studies have proven that there are indeed physical impacts of trauma and emotions may be stored in the body, which may manifest in a variety of ways.

 

Here at TCLM, we do not separate emotional states of being from the body. Rather, we view emotions as real experiences that impact the body, just as much or even more than physical triggers to our physiology. Emotions have been described as "energy in motion." Energy that has no space or opportunity to be moved is energy that becomes trapped and stagnant. When this pattern perpetuates, just like physical triggers we...

Provider Spotlight: Dr. John Kelley

lifestyle medicine Jan 16, 2023

Born and raised in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, I began my journey into medicine in a non-traditional pathway. I attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) studying Spanish and Portuguese. After college, I moved to Argentina to work and explore the language and culture. After a time, I decided it was time to settle down and chose a career in medicine, attending the Medical College of Georgia and then a residency in Family Medicine at St. Anthony’s in Colorado. While in residency I studied Integrative Medicine through the University of Arizona. I then worked as a primary care physician for several years in Boulder, Colorado, while studying with the Institute of Functional Medicine and integrating these principles into my practice.

 

Over time, it became clear that mainstream medicine was not conducive to my practicing medicine the way my patients deserved. So in 2022, I decided to leave my old practice and my family and I decided to embark on an adventure to Costa Rica....

Read this Before You Set Your New Years Weight Loss Resolution

We are only a couple of weeks into the New Year, but I would bet that many people have already quit on their goals or resolutions for this new chapter. We have been there... A new season begins, the realization of the post holiday weight gain sets in, and perfectionism often takes over. Setting high expectations when walking into a new year is common practice, especially for most of us here in the U.S., a very fast-paced, achievement-glorifying environment that often glorifies external success or looks. In the midst of all of the noise and competitiveness, it can be challenging to determine what you truly want, why you are seeking your goals, and thus how to make steps toward the life you want in a realistic, fulfilling, and doable manner.

 

This is where health coaching can make all the difference! A health coach can help create realistic goals, identify obstacles to weight loss and metabolic health, and help you establish a plan with strategies to overcome mental barriers....

Health Transformations Program- Gut Health

Uncategorized Jan 09, 2023

Gut health has been a trendy topic in the health realm for the past few years, after research uncovered the many ways that the health of our gut flora impacts our overall wellness. Microbiome studies have taken off, showing us just how much the bacteria and organisms that take residence in our bodies can affect our health, from brain function, hormone balance, cognitive function, mood, energy production, nutrient absorption and more. Most of us know that we need to take take great care of our gut, but it can be challenging to know where to start.

 

At TCLM, we believe that everyone should have access to support, health education, and a deeper level of healthcare. Therefore, we have created several group Transformation Coaching Programs, consisting of communities tailored to outcomes our patients wish to achieve. Therefore, our patients can join a group based on whom they believe they may resonate with. Of course, we had to make gut health groups a priority, as so many of our...
