A holistic yet scientific approach to health
Dr. Johnson is the owner and practitioner of The Johnson Center where she provides her patients with the caring, nurturing environment required to recover and maintain their optimal health. Most patients come to Dr. Johnson after they've been told that their tests are 'normal' and that there is nothing medically wrong with them. Yet these patients know that something is just not right.
When it comes to your health, it all matters. Nutrition, aging, stress, lifestyle habits and environment can increase the genetic risk for disease and influence the hormones and brain chemicals that determine your physical and emotional health.
You have one life … one body. Why not choose healthcare that’s designed especially for you?
How we differ
The Johnson Center is an innovative medical practice that blends western medicine with evolutionary and lifestyle medicine to help you recover and maintain optimal health. Our integrative approach blends traditional and natural medicine not only through an evolutionary lens but also with a functional approach. Functional medicine looks for the 'root' cause of a patient's illness.
This focus attends to all health-related aspects of an individual's life, including bio-identical hormone therapy, nutrigenomics, nutrition, weight loss, exercise, stress reduction, self-care and renewal. Therapy is based on the latest advances in modern medicine including natural medicine and the science of how the body heals.
Wellness is more than the absence of disease. For those seeking maximum energy, vitality, and quality of life. Creates a pro-active plan to enhance health and help prevent disease by using conventional along with genetic diagnostic testing. By identifying and reducing your risk for degenerative problems such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disorders and even dementia, preventive medicine can add years to your life.,
Weight Loss Programs
While practicing as a Bariatric Surgeon, Dr. Johnson saw that diet and exercise seldom deliver lasting weight loss. Rather, there are numerous medical factors that cause weight gain or prevent weight loss, including hormonal imbalances, intestinal dysbiosis and permeability, impaired or overloaded detox pathways and delayed food allergies. Her program finds the “root’ cause of the weight gain and remove the barriers.
Age-Management is a clinical specialty aimed at targeting early detection, prevention and treatment of age-related decline. Research suggests that aging, obesity, chronic disease, heart disease and cancers may be inflammatory conditions. With a healthy lifestyle, hormone balancing and proper nutrition and supplements, often you can slow or even delay these processes.
Dr. Johnson treats the individual using the most natural and effective treatment possible. She will provide you with all options and will work with you to develop the best plan for you. Natural treatments are preferred, but in cases where prescriptive medications are needed or better suited, she will offer them. Treatments are designed to address root cause issues along with symptoms with least amount of side-effects.
