When students of optometry learn how to fit contact lenses, there’s a good chance they pick up The Fitting Guide for Contact Lenses, a textbook co-authored by Dr. Roger F. Shaw, III of Southern Eye Center. As an authority on lens fitting, Dr. Shaw carefully scrutinizes each eye and pinpoints factors that make it a candidate for specific lenses. In addition to continually exercising his skills at Southern Eye Center, he disseminates his knowledge as an adjunct professor with three colleges of optometry. Dr. Ann Hardin Shaw joins Dr. Roger Shaw at Southern Eye Center, contributing expertise in the areas of nutrition and vision care for children with special needs. The duo draws on a full repertoire of ocular measurement equipment to determine prescriptions, prep eyes for corrective LASIK surgery, or tailor comfortably curved pairs of contact lenses or eye umbrellas.:m]]
Not all fat poses a health threat, according to the wellness experts at Soza Clinic. That's why their weight-loss programs only target abnormal fat and never necessary fat reserves. They help clients trim off extra weight using all-natural supplements that boost the metabolism. At the same time, clients follow nutrient-dense meal plans designed to work with their lifestyle. This combination of diet and nutritional supplements often creates quick, noticeable results.
In 1997, Elizabeth Hotard experienced a life-threatening allergic reaction that changed her perspective on health and healing. At the time, she was a practical nurse, so she took pharmaceuticals and steroids to recover. But the meds yielded disappointing results, so she left them behind and started living a healthier life. By adding whole foods, raw vegetables, supplements, juices, and herbs to her diet, she began to feel better than she did in her twenties. Her positive experience with natural remedies led her to a career in alternative health care. Elizabeth presently holds licenses and certifications as a practical nurse, a massage therapist, and a natural-health practitioner. Her menu of naturopathic treatments consists of massage therapy, detoxification, and wellness services such as nutritional counseling. In accordance with Integrated Wellness' mission to help people "achieve optimal health and potential to enjoy life to the fullest," she excludes inessential drugs, surgeries, or knock-knock jokes when suggesting treatments.
