Having Your Home Tested for Mold and Mycotoxins Living in the Sunshine State isn’t all beaches and oranges. The heat and humidity provide the perfect environment for toxic molds to flourish. And living in a newer home doesn’t mean you’re safe. In fact, some modern construction materials are even more prone to mold infestation than good old-fashioned brick, wood, and plaster. Here in our Tampa, Florida office, we see many patients struggling with mold-related health issues mainly caused by living in a water-damaged home (currently or sometime in the past). You can find plenty of stories about toxic mold illness in the news. Ideally, these patients have already had their homes tested, and we can use the test results to make better treatment decisions, like mold toxicity treatment. But we realize that’s not always possible or how the situation unfolds. In many cases, people are unaware of the mold in […]

Is Semaglutide Safe for Weight Loss and Insulin Resistance? Unless you’ve been living off the grid, you’ve probably heard about the latest popular approach to weight loss — using the diabetes medicine Semaglutide along with a healthy diet and exercise. You’ve likely also heard about a few potential adverse side effects — reports of people developing facial aging due to reduced fat in the face or, more seriously, the increased risk of intestinal obstruction requiring surgery.

Here at the BioDesign Wellness Center in Tampa, Fla., we offer Semaglutide as a treatment option for patients with insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes, or weight-loss resistance.

Detoxing to Flush Endocrine-disrupting Chemicals from Your Body Consider for a moment the number of chemicals found in everyday consumer products and how they might have a negative effect on your health. It’s time to look for detoxification treatment provider in Tampa, FL. Especially those chemicals that exceed your body’s ability to eliminate them on its own. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are chemical compounds found in many consumer products that mimic, block, or interfere with the hormones in the body’s endocrine system. These chemicals have been linked to many adverse health conditions, including congenital disabilities, tumors, reproductive issues, obesity, fatigue, cognitive impairment, and more. Of course, reducing one’s exposure to these chemicals is an important first step. However, because these chemicals are so pervasive, they can’t be avoided entirely, and even low levels of exposure can disrupt the endocrine system. We recommend a medically supervised detoxification twice a year to maintain

Maintaining your health over the winter holidays is always challenging. The change in weather brings with it a surge in infectious illnesses, while the hustle and bustle of the holidays disrupt healthy routines. Then there’s the added stress that weakens our immune systems. Is it time to consider Immune System Therapy in Tampa, FL? Fueling that stress is the likelihood that if you really need to see a healthcare professional, their availability is reduced due to scaled-back holiday hours. It’s likely that our collective immunity is down due to increased forced vaccination, staying home for two years, and overdoing it with cleaning products. This year is shaping up to be particularly challenging given the potential threat of a highly anticipated “Tripledemic” (a mass media sensationalization for what is described above)— flu, coronavirus, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) — not to mention the growing concern over strep A infections both here

Conventional medicine and big pharma are losing the battle against type 2 diabetes. The latest evidence of this comes in the form of a Reuters analysis of provisional death data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The article claims that U.S. diabetes deaths in 2021 exceeded 100,000 for the second straight year.  Reuters reporters Chad Terhune and Robin Respaut did a fine job highlighting the failure of current treatment protocols in curbing this largely preventable illness: “The number of Americans with the disease has exploded in recent decades, and their prognosis has worsened, even though spending on new treatments has soared.” What they don’t mention in their article is that the new treatments are no better than the old ones. In fact, they’re worse. They’re more expensive, and they have more side effects. In addition, a pharmaceutical industry campaign for aggressive treatment has led to an

She has been living with migraines since she experienced her first episode in a rehearsal room for a Broadway show nearly 25 years ago. Unfortunately, she is in a profession in which she cannot easily avoid her migraine triggers — spotlights, flashing lights, flying, and driving. At times she hasn’t been able to perform due to a debilitating migraine. Chenoweth is not alone. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, 12 percent of the population (including children) suffers from migraine — 18 percent of women in the U.S., six percent of men, and 10 percent of children. Migraines are most common between the ages of 18 and 44. (Photo © Anh Nguyen — sourced from Unsplash.com) Migraines are not just
