    I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have found Dr. Heim. The insight he gave me via my initial blood work was instrumental in helping me get to the point of committing to a healthier lifestyle. The diet that Doc put me on has been life changing. However, his coaching and support greatly assisted me in staying the course and changing my lifestyle. My weight is now in the normal range and I look and feel better and younger than I have in a long time. I appreciate his approach and staff!

    Dr. Heim says...

    Dr. Heim has studied in many areas of medicine to provide a full scope of the most cutting edge treatments available. He goes way above and beyond just writing a prescription for a given health issue. His goal is to find and fix the cause of your health problems, rather than just giving you a pill to mask symptoms. There are many natural treatments available for many common conditions that typically are treated with medication. For most common issues such as fatigue, constipation, and insomnia, there is a cause that can be determined and reversed when the body is given the tools to heal itself. Dr. Heim will do his best to find that cause and set up an individualized health program to optimize your health and well being.
