Integrative medicine is based upon a model of health and wellness, as opposed to a model of disease taking into account the lifestyle habits of a patient. It is a healing-oriented medicine focused on the mind, body, and spirit to promote optimal wellness. Integrative medicine works towards restoring optimal wellness in a patient by understanding their unique conditions as well as circumstances to address the full-spectrum of the pillars of health, including physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences.
Through the treatment and care of the whole person, integrative medicine combines modern healthcare with scientifically-validated practices considered complementary and alternative medicine. This includes the intelligent integration of alternative methods to facilitate the body's innate healing response.
Integrative medicine emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between the practitioner and patient, ultimately employing a personalized healing strategy utilizing the most vital interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people regain and maintain optimal wellness.

Nutritional Medicine is based on the principle that nutrients, including essential micronutrients, are required for the proper functioning of all the biochemical processes on which our bodies depend. Therefore, when treating symptoms or diseases, we look for the underlying causes which, although often partly genetic, result from nutritional and environmental factors. This is in contrast to the tendency in the conventional medical approach to treat symptoms by means of drugs or surgery. We conduct vitamin and micronutrient testing which reveals the specific factors causing your symptoms, and then develop a personalized treatment plan outlining food and supplementation to replete nutritional deficiencies.
Energy Medicine is based on the principle that illness can result from disturbances in our energy.
The human body is made of energy. It has structure (bones), plumbing (digestive tract), and electricity (nervous systems), all infused with energy. Science has begun to measure the subtle energy field around the human body and research shows when the natural flow of energy is obstructed, disordered, and depleted, the body becomes diseased. The energy within our body dictates how our cells react to injury, disease processes and recover. At WOW Wellness, we utilize a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy device that produces various waveforms and frequencies that stimulate healthy blood flow. Our treatment protocols are individualized.
Cannabis Medicine has erupted to the forefront to manage a variety of medical conditions. Cannabinoids are medicinally active substances that are produced within the cannabis plant which interacts with the natural endocannabinoid system within our body, responsible for many bodily functions. The endocannabinoid system plays a significant role in maintaining balance of our body's internal processes. An optimally functioning endocannabinoid system is vital to wellness. Scientific research has suggested there may be a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency which can contribute to the development of certain conditions. We will assist you through the certification process in the state of Maryland and provide education on this healing medicine.
The WOW Booster Bar provides a variety of Injectable Vitamin Boosters enabling you to
choose a combination of vitamins to enhance your body's natural functions. By using a mixture of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, we are able to provide your system with the nutrients necessary to optimize your wellness. Our booster injections can enhance energy, boost metabolism, and help heal the body by replenishing depleted vitamin stores. Booster injections are administered via intramuscular (IM) injection into muscle allowing for absorption in the bloodstream quickly. Approximately only 20% of oral supplements are absorbed following metabolism in your gastrointestinal system, hence why an IM injection will be absorbed more readily.
The WOW Intravenous Drip Line provides a diverse number of intravenous drip combinations which can correct essential vitamin and mineral deficits. Intravenous Vitamin Therapy at WOW Wellness will replenish, rehydrate, as well as revitalize you, allowing you to combat fatigue, improve mental clarity and alertness, boost energy as well as metabolism, increase athletic performance and endurance, and provide restoration to the body both physically and mentally. Intravenous administration provides direct delivery to the bloodstream; bypassing any obstacles in the digestive system that may hinder absorption. This results in 100% bioavailability, revitalizing your overall health and impacting optimal wellness.
Nutrients are vital for optimal wellness and it is challenging to gain all of our vitamins and minerals from a balanced diet. Our bodies are lacking essential vitamins and minerals due to the soil our food is grown in is depleted, our food is processed, and it is also genetically modified as well as covered in pesticides. The Western Diet, which is our staple, is devoid in all of these nutrients. Even if we are are eating a complete whole foods diet, many Americans are still unable to absorb macro- and micronutrients due to gastrointestinal problems. Due to micronutrient deficiency affecting approximately 2 billion people worldwide, pharmaceutical grade supplements are vital to restore imbalance of nutrients and prevention of premature aging.
Mistletoe goes by the scientific name, Viscum album. The liquid extract of the mistletoe plant has been utilized as an alternative method to treat cancer for hundreds of years. It is currently widely used in Europe as an adjuvant treatment for cancer. Mistletoe is unique in that it does not have roots but instead survives by growing on trees. It contains a variety of components shown to support healthy immune function, induce apoptosis (cell death) of tumor cells, and support quality of life. Numerous clinical studies have been conducted. While the FDA has not approved mistletoe as a treatment option for any medical condition, it is available by compassionate use.
Ozone is a versatile therapy that is healing to the body as well as detoxifying interchangeably. Ozone molecules, O3, has three oxygen atoms, and increases the amount of circulating oxygen in the body and is the source of its medical properties. As a result, it stimulates local stem cells and repairs tissues, including cartilage. Ozone also increases antioxidant protection. It is a potent regulator of the immune system, improves circulation, and is a powerful stimulant of the mitochondria which is responsible for cell energy production. Ozone can be beneficial for many chronic illnesses and administered intravenously along with techniques.
Peptide therapy is a newly emerging science that utilizes specific amino acid sequences which are called "peptides." Peptides have far-reaching regulatory and rejuvenation actions on neuro-endocrine-immune functionality according to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. To simplify, peptides control many bodily functions. Peptides can help increase human growth hormone (HGH) production and promote healing within the body. Also, other peptides can be administered for gut health, for brain health, immune-boosting, sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, and fat loss. Through increasing these functions, you impact optimal wellness.
