Understanding one's health takes time, effort, and ultrasensitive recording devices to pick up any portentous conversations about trouble brewing between the muscular and nervous systems. Listen in to the body's signals with today's Groupon to HealthPoint RX, valid at two locations in Concord and Cornelius. Choose between two options:
• For $139, you get sclerotherapy treatment for six veins (a $300 value).
• For $50, you get a diet consultation, nutrition advice, and four B12 injections (a $125 value).
The professional staff at HealthPoint RX furnishes clients with sensible diet plans, vitamins, and vein treatments. Sclerotherapy treatments efface up to six small to medium varicose or spider veins with an injection of sclerosant. In a 30-minute procedure soundtracked by soft classical music, the sterile chemical hardens the blood vessel's lining before causing it to fade and sink back into the body's depths like a summer suntan come October. Patients may experience minimal discomfort, including mild stinging and itching, and are advised to wear compression socks for a few days or until newly lightened legs start tapping pleas to be unshrouded in Morse code.
A nutritional consultation and custom diet plan help balance proper amounts of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and Red 40, aided by an information packet from the American Dietetic Associate that outlines healthy, satisfying diets of 1,200–1,500 calories per day. A program of B12 injections kicks off with one energy-boosting shot in the arm during the office visit, then continues with three more injections to be administered at home over the remaining month. Because B12 isn't as easily absorbed by in pill form, the injections imbue the participant with a quicker burst of vigor that enhances the immune system, akin to drinking coffee rather than simply using it as a hair conditioner.
Both co-owners of HealthPoint RX help patients decide what to put in their bodies—family nurse practitioner Ginger Dailey by recommending medications and delivering injections of Botox and Juvéderm, and licensed dietician Annsley Ulrich by designing nutrition plans. Together, they run a facility where sclerotherapy vanquishes spider veins and appetite suppressants curb the urge to splice your genes with those of a cake. Perhaps most importantly, their monthly nutritional counseling outfits clients with personalized meal plans, a practice that helps them lose weight without endangering their health.
