Naturopathic physician Dr. Theresa Ramsey, NMD and the staff at Center for Natural Healing help bolster body and mind with holistic wellness services. For swift wellness boosts, Dr. Ramsey injects three sets of B6 and nontoxic methylcobalamin B12 vitamins—which contain no traces of cyanide unlike other varieties of B12—to help spur energy and metabolism levels. Like mayoral run-off elections, guests may request shots weekly or twice weekly. Alternatively, torsos can stretch out for 60 minutes inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber's sealed cylindrical tube, which fits one person or three crash-test dummies, and rejuvenates cells with 100% pressurized oxygen. Throughout the soothing session, operators speak into an intercom system to alert guests of instructions, such as performing exaggerated breaths or yawns to help clear ears for the initial pressure. Once the chamber reaches the appropriate pressure level, guests can rest, meditate, or don a headset to listen to the soothing resonance of silent-movie soundtracks.
Though their disciplines and specialties may vary, the team at Aletris Center agrees that the true definition of health is more far-reaching, and more complex, than a mere lack of disease. The goal at their center is to combine natural and alternative medicine with the best of conventional healthcare available. They apply this preventative, comprehensive, naturopathic philosophy to an extensive roster of ailments from acid reflux to weight gain.
As the staff members' backgrounds vary, so do the treatments they offer, which include acupuncture, holistic pelvic care, chiropractic care, and colon hydrotherapy. Other specialties include naturopathic medicine, natural hormone therapy, women's health, and pediatrics.
Years ago, miners in Eastern Europe first discovered the therapeutic benefits of salt: Hours of exposure in salt mines was said to alleviate such respiratory ailments as asthma, bronchitis, and more. Salt Chalet Arizona imitates the salt mines of Eastern Europe. Inside the facility’s two treatment rooms, layers of salt extracted from the Dead Sea coat the surfaces from floor to ceiling. Amid calming light and ambient music, visitors lounge back in comfy chairs and breathe in the salt, which has healing ions that can help clear out breathing passages and reduce inflammation in the lungs. With respect to respiratory ailments, the relaxing salt treatments provide a noninvasive alternative to drugs, undergoing surgery, or bottling and inhaling the breath of a healthy friend.

During a one-hour session at Tree of Life Chiropractic, Dr. Chad Adams, who holds a chiropractic doctorate and certification in applied kinesiology, tests patients for common food allergies.

During the test itself, Dr. Adams places small samples of the top 10 most common allergy-inducing foods into clients’ mouths and conducts muscle tests to assess client reactions with help from an assistant.
