Despite the undeniable power of modern medicine, people continue to remain chronically ill. Why is this so?
James Neuenschwander, M.D., director of the Bio Energy Medical Center in Ann Arbor is eager to answer this question. University of Michigan alumni, Dr. Neu (as he’s affectionately called) was frustrated with the many ways traditional medicine fails to educate and successfully treat patients. Historically, allopathic doctors rejected a holistic approach to healing by treating the symptoms of a condition without understanding the source of the disease. To counter the trend, this passionate, independent thinker created Bio Energy Medical Center in 1988 to treat “illness at its source” and to focus on the entirety of the patient’s physical and mental health.
In the years since its inception, the Center has grown and evolved in direct correlation to our country’s healthcare crisis. Despite innovative technology and miracle medications, a vast portion of our population continues to get and stay sick. Responding to his patient’s yet unmet needs, Dr. Neu offers integrative healing at its best, which he describes as, “alternative care under the umbrella of a medical doctor.”
Complementary & Alternative Medicine
Services at the Bio Energy Medical Center include Acupuncture, Classical Homeopathy, Colon Therapy, Detoxification, IV-Therapy, Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Children’s Health and more. To determine the right treatment plan, patients are assessed based on an individualized approach. Evaluations include highly specialized lab tests, energy tests and live blood cell analysis to detect imbalances that cause illness. To complete the patient profile, nutritional, vitamin and toxin levels are also measured.
As diseases among adults and children continue to rise including cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergies, Autism and ADHD, Dr. Neu looks to the underlying commonalities. Our unhealthy diets, toxic home, school and work environments, polluted water and contaminated food sources all wreak havoc with the body’s innate ability to heal. Collaborating with patients is essential to identifying which of these factors contribute to an individual’s toxic load and manifestation of disease.
Integrative Cancer Therapy
An encouraging example of utilizing an integrative approach to wellness is in the treatment of cancer. Integrative cancer therapy allows Dr. Neu to determine how best to support patients going through chemotherapy and/or radiation by balancing holistic care with medical intervention. Part of a cancer fellowship at the University of Southern Florida, he has witnessed improvements and outcomes of cancer based on molecular profiling of tumors.
“Each cancer cell has its own pattern of active genes and proteins. Molecular profiling tests for a variety of biomarkers in the DNA of a tissue sample to improve diagnosis and treatment on an individualized basis. Therefore, cancer treatment can be targeted with both medications and supplements based on the patient’s tumor,” explains Dr. Neu.
Staff and Services Expanded
Bio Energy Medical Center was relocated and expanded two years ago to better accommodate the increased number of people searching for holistic care. Newly hired specialized wellness practitioners complement the current staff offering enhanced care for new and existing patients. The contemporary office space emanates a relaxing vibe with its environmentally friendly combination of an earthy color palate and sustainable furnishings, flooring, paint and lighting. Inviting and attractive, the Center was truly designed with the patient in mind.
