When it comes to her patients’ health, employing one school of thought isn’t enough for naturopathic doctor Mai Nguyen-Pham. That’s why, at All Naturopathic Clinic, she incorporates five wellness philosophies— clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, lifestyle counseling, physical medicine, and homeopathic medicine—to broaden her approach to improving patients’ well-being. With physical medicine’s colon-hydrotherapy and massage sessions, Dr. Nguyen-Pham helps improve her patients’ circulatory and immune systems, whereas her understanding of botanical medicine allows her to prescribe natural dietary supplements to support function of the liver, digestive tract, or respiratory system. From this diverse repertoire, Dr. Nguyen-Pham creates a custom regimen of treatments to aid each patient in any number of wellness goals, such as losing weight, overcoming insomnia, or becoming Fabio.

The workout founds its motions in the principles of Pilates, amping up the regimen with elements of dance, the use of the ballet barre, and simple lifting regimens. In addition to the ample muscle building, the style focuses on lengthening that muscle with extensive stretching during each session.

Founded by Dr. Stephen Joffe and Craig Joffe, a father-and-son team who used LASIK eye surgery to correct their own vision, Joffe MediCenter has four locations across the country where expert ophthalmologists use advanced diagnostics to conduct each custom wavefront LASIK surgery. Treatment begins with a free, noninvasive examination with Bausch & Lomb Orbscan and Zywave mapping systems—derived from technology developed for astronomy and physics applications. They generate a 3-D model of each eye, which, like a fingerprint or favorite line from The Princess Bride, is unique to each person.
