New Holistic Health Center Thriving in Ardmore

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

There are many reasons why people seek out holistic methods of healing. Some turn to these alternative therapies because they do not have medical insurance. Some believe in the healing power of the body and mind. Still others find it as a last resort to relieve chronic pain has persisted more traditional forms of treatment.

Whatever the reasons that bring you to the Live Well Holistic Center in Ardmore, Dr. Martin Orimenko will likely greet you, as he did for me. Patients there fondly call him “Doctor Martin.”

This story came about after several Main Line residents—unknown to each other, with various backgrounds and incomes, and under independent circumstances—spoke about their positive outcomes from treatment at Live Well.

Keeping in mind that there are some vocal, rather rigidly traditional physicians who take a dim view, in general, of holistic medicine and healing methods, we decided to focus simply on the experience, and report on it.

The atmosphere in the office is calm and comforting, and the open-air courtyard leading into the office sets the tone even before you enter the office. Once inside, Dr. Martin’s wife and co-founder of the center, Traci (who is also a holistic health counselor), welcomes you as if entering her home.

Natural Allergy Solutions

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Dr. Martin Orimenko, DC, ND, FIACA – Live Well Holistic Health Center

It seems like every other person suffers from allergies in the Spring time in most areas of the country. It can make you absolutely miserable and dramatically lower your quality of life for weeks at a time.
Helping people with allergies has always been a significant part of my practice and I’ve learned a lot over my 20 years in natural medicine.

My basic message to readers is that “the outside reflects the inside.” In other words, you will be susceptible to pollens, cat dander, dust, etc. that are outside your body, to the degree that your insides, namely your mucous membranes, are clogged, full of mucous, or otherwise imbalanced. The mucous membranes are the lining of your
alimentary canal that runs from mouth to anus. The primary problem area is the intestinal lining. This area is a perfect breeding ground for yeast (Candida albicans, a type of fungus). With things like antibiotics,
birth control pills, steroid drugs, tap water and a sugary diet all contributing to their growth, it’s no wonder it is such a prevalent health issue. Yeast overgrowth also directly contributes to chronic sinus infections, chronic colds and bronchitis, indigestion, brain fog, low energy and lethargy, and indirectly to a long list of other conditions.

The solution is balancing your intestinal tract by doing a little cleansing of a very specific nature for a few weeks. Restricting the foods that grow yeast and taking a good antifungal (natural, not Nystatin) can make a world of difference not only for allergies but for all the conditions mentioned above. And the effects are permanent, notwithstanding doing all the things to encourage yeast growth again.
It’s not the only way to help allergies but in my experience the majority of people derive enormous benefit from this type of cleansing.

I would be delighted to help anyone you know who is suffering from allergies. In an initial Holistic Health Visit, I’d use Kinesiologic Analysis to determine the best anitfungal for you, and in addition to giving you a full consultation and treatment to address your allergies, we’d get you set up with a cleansing program (typically 3 weeks, though it differs for everyone) to address your systems and the root of the problem.

There’s no reason to continue to suffer with allergies! Call us at 610.896.1554 and schedule an appointment today to start feeling better in as soon as a week from when you start a cleanse program specialized to your needs.
