Treatment Modalities
 

INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE
Integrative medicine uses the best possible treatments from both conventional medicine and alternative medicine. My practice focuses on the least invasive and least toxic method to facilitate health by integrating appropriate traditional and complementary therapies. Specialized therapies are recommended based on an understanding of the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects of the individual.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE
Functional medicine focuses on restoring balance to the dysfunctional systems by strengthening and restoring the fundamental physiological processes that underlie them, and by adjusting the environmental inputs that nurture and impair them. This approach leads to therapies that restores health and function, rather than simply controlling signs and symptoms.

HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE
An energetic form of therapy used to treat disease. Minute quantities of a particular formulation are prescribed each with a unique energetic frequency. The intent is to choose a particular formulation that will resonate with the frequency of the particular aberrant metabolic process being treated. In Dr. Mulcahy's practice, specific homeopathic remedies are chosen to facilitate the process of bio-therapeutic drainage and detoxification.

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT
This treatment simulates hormones with the same physiologic function and biologic structure as hormones naturally produced in the body. In addition to the female and male hormones Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone, it is often necessary to balance other hormonal systems and specific neurotransmitters, which includes the thyroid and adrenal glands, as well as the neurotransmitters, Serotonin, GABA, Norepinephrine, and Dopamine.
