OVERVIEW OF SERVICES 

Here is a brief introduction to Integrative Holistic Medicine to help you understand the scope of Diagnostic Evaluations and Integrative Medicine Practices used at the clinic:

Today many Complementary and Holistic Health therapies are offered by those who have had minimal or no education in Clinical Diagnosis, Pharmacology, Anatomy and Physiology and they don’t understand the course of chronic illness. This leaves patients at a disadvantage at best, or unprotected, and endangered. And the sad part is that most ‘Natural Health’ practitioners have no idea that their lack of western medical training may delay needed medical treatments, or even make there patient’s condition worse.

Certified Holistic Nurses

Holistic Nurses receive advanced medical training in Complementary Medicine, Health Coaching and have National Certifications that are recognized and approved by the ANA.

They are licensed, Registered Nurses who integrate Natural, Holistic Medicine Therapies with Western Medical treatments. Recognizing that practitioners who have both traditional forms of Healing, combined with Western Medical treatments and diagnosis are best able to heal complex immune system illnesses while at the same time offering holistic preventative medicine, the practice of Holistic Nursing was born.

Today’s Certified Holistic Nurses are emerging as owners and cornerstones of Integrative Medicine Clinics, working in hospitals to integrate Holistic Medicine into the medical model, and serve as Parish and Congregational Nurses in Churches and Synagogues through out the United States. They serve seniors in Wellness Clinics in their Assisted Living Communities, and are found in the growing field of Sports Medicine. Holistic Nurses offer their patients Health Coaching through comprehensive understanding of Complementary Medicine as they blend traditional Natural Therapies seamlessly into advanced, Western Medical treatment protocols and review their patient’s life-style, home environment, lab work, medications, history and physical exams, nutrition and allergies, and then offer Complimentary forms of healing therapies.

Traditional Asian Medicine is recognized as effective by the World Health Organization, and is recognized by Western Medical Universities including the University of Maryland and Harvard Medical School. The National Institute of Health has approved Asian Medicine effective for the treatment of Headaches and Chronic Pain, Lymes Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Asthma, Allergies, Environmental Illness, Back and Arthritis/Rheumatism Pain.

Traditional Asian Medicine

Asian forms of healing are used alone and to supplement Western Medicine treatments such as chemotherapy and post surgical pain. For thousands of years Asian Medicine has been used as a way to prevent the development of serious illnesses by keeping the body ‘Well Toned’ and the immune system strong. It also reverses deep and chronic illness, and restores a sense of Well-Being, even when other forms of medical care have failed.

Naturopathic Therapies 

This includes the treatment of illness with Natural Remedies, Nutrition, Supplements and Herbal Remedies.

Integrative Holistic Medicine

This combines Western and Traditional forms of Medical Therapies, integrating various forms of healing for the benefit of patients.

In her clinic Dr. Emi uses a combination of all of these healing traditions, offering comprehensive evaluations, Asian Five Element Therapy, Te-A-Te Meridian Acupressure, Five Element Needleless Acupuncture with Moxibustion, Herbal Remedies and Nutrional Supplements, Individual, Nutritional Menus. Combined all of these support and encourage the healing of the body from the inside out. Dr. Emi works side-by-side with other medical providers to reduce or eliminate many of the pharmaceutical drugs they are taking.  This combination of therapies helps the body to recharge, cleanse and renew.

    I live in Jamestown, NY 14701. Is there someone in my area who practices your integrative holistic medicine? And, do you know if my medicare insurance will cover treatment? I’m a healthy 81 years old and take levothyroxine 88mcg/day for hypothyroidism. I have been a vegetarian for most of my life and want to keep toxins out of my body. Thanks, Cyn

    Hi Emi,
    I’m so glad I accidentally came across your website. I am trying to decide about integrating some supplements into my daily regimen and want to be certain that what I take is safe. At the moment, I’ve gone back to school for a short term certified medical assistant program. I’m an older student and am post menopausal. Right now I have no insurance and very little income so can’t afford to go have my blood levels checked. I’m considering taking one 5mg DHEA per day to see if it will help with my fatigue and general lack of stamina. I do feel better when I do a lot of brisk walking but just need something more. Would you think taking such a low dose is ok until sometime late next summer when I’ll be working in my new job and expect to have health insurance? If you have any advice to offer on this I greatly appreciate it! I live in Nasville, TN.

    Thank’s! Pam

    • Emi Miller says:

      Hi Pam, As with all medical questions, it is impossible for me to answer them without an in-depth assessment. Yet as far as the DHEA is concerned, I am not in favor of it. There are side effects noted that are of concern to me. I prefer natural ways to increase energy, including nutrition and supplements and exercise and good sleep habits. Here is some info for you to look at re: the potential side effects of DHEA. And while it may work for some, even those may have only temporary gains, and with the risk being so unwanted, I can’t recommend it. Hope this helps…

      DHEA may also cause side effects such as abnormal menstruation, acute respiratory failure (a lack of oxygen in blood), altered cholesterol, anxiety, blocked blood flow to the brain, blood in the urine, changes in abnormal heart rhythms, changes in adrenal or thyroid hormones, changes in blood vessel width, changes in …Jul 1, 2014

    I am moving to Charlotte from MA and am looking for a holistic, integrative medical ‘doc’. Can you work with a senior of modest means on Social Security?

    • Emi Miller says:

      Hi Pema Tara, I will be happy to consult with you and work out a payment scale that is ‘doable’ for us. Call me when you get here. I will email you my info.

  9. Kay says:

    Thank you so much for the info about microcrystalline cellulose. I had immediate reactions to this filler for my dessicated thyroid compounding: headache, foggy brain, unbalanced, and fatigue. I finally found an independent pharmacist in my area who has plenty of dessicated thyroid. They do not recommend microcrystalline cellulose. They have lots of other options and suggested olive oil and coconut oil for those like me with sensitivities. I know many like me fight for the quality of our lives. I searched and searched locally and in other states for the last year until I finally found a pharmacy willing to work with me.

    • Emi Miller says:

      Hi Kay, Just be sure to ask them where their pigs are conceived, grown, and slaughtered, and the thyroid glands made into desiccated thyroid. Many independent pharmacies have had to go outside this country to get the thyroid glandular, and then choose to make it there, under what conditions we do not know, and what fillers are used, and the quality of the tissue is of concern. It is possible to get the pigs who are sown and grown and their thyroid glands processed here. Try to find that. But good work so far! Hope this is helpful.
