About AlternativesThe vision for Alternatives started over 10 years ago. Dr. Patricia Ryan established a medical practice after she was Board Certified in Family Practice in 1992. The concept of treating the whole individual was rooted in the Family Practice specialty. While her training in traditional allopathic medicine was excellent, she found that there were many people who would fall through the cracks. In other words, they did not have a disease, but they didnt feel well. It just seemed that medications, surgery, or physical therapy would not adequately address their symptoms or concerns. She was also frustrated by the short amount of face-to-face time that was allowed with the current system of medicine. The pace was not healthy for Dr. Ryan nor her clients. In searching for the answers for her own journey toward health, Dr. Ryan began to discover many different ways to approach the human body. There is not just one cause of illness, nor just one theory regarding health that works for everyone. Human beings are quite complex and they are more than just a physical body. They have unique genetic make-ups, emotional influences, environmental influences, differences in nutritional intake, and different responses to stressors. Dr. Ryan has obtained training to address the patient at all of these levels. She has also recruited staff who have also studied healing through many different lenses, and have helped create Alternatives, A Center For Conscious Health.
The name, Alternatives, was chosen because we want people to know that in addition to allopathic medicine, there are other options out there; more information that can help you have the vibrant health that you deserve. A Center For Conscious Health was chosen because we are a center for healing, education, information, support, and empowerment. We want every client to become more conscious about what their current health status is, and the possibilities of what it can become! So, if you are currently experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, menstrual cramps, depression, acne, or illnesses such as fibromayalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, menopause, come and visit us and see what you can do to feel better.
We also can advise you on how you can reduce your risk of cancer. If you already have had cancer, let us show you how you can aid your body in healing from chemotherapy and radiation, and reduce your risk of recurrence. There are things that you can do!
