It takes Lord Eye Center's opticians one hour to produce a pair of prescription glasses. Working at an onsite lab, they fit frames from more than 30 designers, using an electronic tracing device to render the thinnest lenses possible. The shop's optometrists can also prescribe various types of contact lenses, from continuous wear and disposable to bifocals and colored lenses. Dr. Whit Lord, owner of Lord Eye Center, scouts out the latest cornea-hugging designs as a member of several advisory panels for contact-lens manufacturers.
Since graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic 15 years ago, Dr. Terri Norburg has been realigning out-of-whack spines. She manually examines bodies and x-rays spines to root out the cause of pain before tackling discomfort with adjustments, electric muscle-stimulation treatments, and physical-therapy services. To boost the health of her patients even more, Dr. Norburg pairs ailments with beneficial vitamins, such as vitamin C for people with a vitamin C deficiency, or potassium for people with bananaphobia.
At E.V.E, treatments and services are based on energy healing, which aims to fine-tune the energy systems in the body to restore balance and allow the body to heal itself. Potential benefits include better sleep, weight loss, reduction of chronic pain, and overall detoxification. In conjunction with these treatments, clients can also opt for custom meal planning based on metabolic testing, symptoms, goals, and health concerns. Meal plans, which are created by a nutrition specialist, include four weeks' worth of recipes that complement treatments intended to align the mind, body, and spirit and can be tailored to any allergies.
Board-certified ER physician Dr. Don Gates knows the dangers of obesity first hand. After experiencing a 40-pound weight gain and a huge spike in blood sugar levels a little more than a decade ago, he decided it was time to take control. Today, he draws from his own past experiences to help others manage obesity-related disorders or remain at an ideal weigh. At Scale Solutions, he oversees medical weight loss programs that rely on appetite suppressants, diet plans, and fitness routines. To help clients overcome fatigue, he also administers lipotropic injections that are rich in vitamin B12 and metabolism-boosting amino acids.
