The Johnson Center for Health & Wellness

The Johnson Center is a new health care service that offers personal and directive solutions and wellness planning designed to keep you healthy for decades to come. Patients today are not getting the help they need from conventional medicine. Many leave their physician's office with a prescription in hand but not sure if their concerns were understood. The Johnson Center emphasizes the relationship between the physician and patient and listens to the patient seeking to discover the underlying root cause of an illness. Prescription medicines can be beneficial but other healing options exist that emphasize healthy living, nutrition and disease prevention. True health can only be achieved by addressing the underlying imbalances in brain chemistry, hormone levels, digestion and lifestyle.

Conventional medicine is great for treating acute care such as a broken bone, a heart attack, stroke or bacterial infection. But it does not adequately address the rising epidemic of chronic illnesses.  Click here to find out more about functional medicine and how it differs from conventional medicine.
