Dr. Satcher enjoys interactive (lifestyle) teaching that is informative and entertaining. Prior to becoming a community member, you will view an orientation. Attendees apply to become (community) members. Personalized programs are put together personally by Dr. Satcher after she reviews your case. We find that most people are resolving their issues after 3 months. The Programs are structured to make wellness doable and breaks up the components into small steps that are easily implemented.
Here we list a few of the issues that can be addressed by her programs:
Adrenal Fatigue or exhaustion is when the adrenal glands are not making the appropriate amounts of hormones needed to control energy and fuel systems in the body. Hormones coming from the adrenal glands include cortisol that has a major role in fat storage and making fat in the body. If it is not well controlled, then you will accumulate fat and not be able to get rid of it. Your program would enable you to balance your hormones to increase your energy.
Allergies are related to a loss of proper gut (digestive system) integrity and loss of balance in the microbiome or the microbial makeup. This is called leaky gut and there is an imbalance of the bacteria and other organisms inhabiting the bowel. Nutrients may not be properly absorbed and the microbiome becomes unbalanced, making the immune system weak and or overactive resulting in reactions to foods, and environmental elements like pollen and dust. Asthma is related to this as a form of allergies affecting the respiratory or breathing system.
These allergies can turn against the digestive system itself and become a repetitive cycle of dysbiosis which is a change in the microbiome (mix of microbes in the body that maintain our health). Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is a combination of these factors that can be difficult to overcome without help. Your program will allow you to identify and understand how to recover from this.
Stress is at the root cause of most of our illnesses. The body keeps score by making stress into disease. The symptoms of this may be hard for a primary care physician to pinpoint. Our doctors are chiefly trained to look at the data- labs, vital signs, and testing and to make a diagnosis so that they can “treat” the disease with medication. This is how our system of health is set up. It is sick care and not well care or wellness. Stress can show up in the body as symptoms and your labs and studies can look normal. Stress can show up in the body as weight loss, weight gain, acne, thyroid issues, adrenal and sleep issues, lack of sex drive, other erectile dysfunction, fertility problems, hormonal imbalances and digestive issues. Dr. Satcher is a medical detective and will comb through the events, data and subtle changes to find patterns that tell her what is needed to improve or reverse your situation.
Everyone wants to be at their best and to look their best. Often because of pressures within our society, we resort to unhealthy medications, surgeries and treatments to achieve the optimal weight at any cost and without regard to our actual health. Seems weird to even say it, but there is a whole other way to look at weight management using AI (artificial intelligence), genomics and examining how the individual reacts to, metabolizes and assimilates food. Balance within the body makes control of cravings, fat loss and muscle gain to burn more fat, achievable. Athletic Performance can also be enhanced by improving nutrition, decreasing toxicity and removing the gunk from the body’s engines to burn fuel more efficiently.
