Our healing and wellness centers in both Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, combine proven, centuries old Eastern/Oriental Medicine, like Acupuncture and the best of Modern State-Of-The-Art Clinical Diagnostic Testing to help identify—and resolve—the root cause of your health issues and chronic pain. This blending of East and West, which is the basis for the success of HealthMedPlus, is known as Integrative Medicine.
During that time, thousands of patients have experienced the caring, one-on-one attention of Luis Fuentes, D.O.M., L. Ac., one of the country’s foremost practitioners of Integrative Medicine. In addition, our approach to your health partners with your primary physician to provide you the best that health care can offer.
Eastern/Oriental medicine, including Acupuncture which dates back thousands of years, is the oldest established medical system, with documented protocols, known to mankind. At HealthMedPlus, Fuentes—Florida Board Certified, a primary health care provider and Doctor of Oriental medicine—uses his extensive experience to help find the true cause of your health problems. In most cases, even with physical pain, serious disease is—in part—genetic and is most affected by nutritional deficiencies and excesses, lifestyle choices and long standing unbalanced emotional and mental states within your body. In fact, The Centers for Disease Control has stated that a large percentage of diseases—nearly 80 percent—are emotionally induced! The remaining diseases are caused by other factors such as autoimmune disorders, bacterias, viruses, environmental toxins or have their root in musculo-skeletal disorders.Once the cause of your health issue has been pinpointed, we at HealthMedPlus will create a personalized wellness program designed to help you reach optimal wellbeing. This means treating the root cause of your problem, not just the problem itself.
Once we meet with you for a personal examination and discussion about your health issues, we may choose to use a specific test, including our Opti-Chem Blood Profile (which provides an extensive array of more than 75 test results) to identify vitamin, mineral, nutrient deficiencies and excesses and evolving health issues.
In addition to state-of-the-art "Blood Work" HealthMed Plus also offers you the latest in diagnostic testing to identify: Food and Environmental Allergies, Heavy and Toxic Metals, Neuro-transmitter levels (brain-chemistry), Immune System activity, Hormone levels, Antioxidant levels and activity, Amino Acid levels, Stool and Parasite presence, Gene testing for beneficial foods and nutrients and predisposition to specific diseases, and testing to determine Telomere length.
HealthMedPlus also offers you access to the latest state-of-the-art scanning such as MRIs, CT Scans, PET Scans and X-rays.
Again, this blending of Eastern/Oriental medicine and modern diagnostic testing is what sets HealthMedPlus apart from others in the field.
Armed with the vital information obtained from testing, we at HealthMedPlus can design a personalized wellness program that evolves as a complete wellness strategy for you. This plan may include a custom medical nutrition program, a nutrient/vitamin plan that addresses your specific deficiencies, lifestyle counseling, planning and recommendations and the Oriental arts (such as acupuncture and other proven physical therapies).
Fuentes’ own unique ‘hands on’ style has earned him recognition as an “expert” and a classification as Distinguished Acupuncture Physician. In addition, at HealthMedPlus we also employ the use of hightech, Laser Technology to treat pain and health issues. These safe and completely painless procedures—which focus on key acupuncture points and pain locations—are another example of the convergence of Eastern/ Oriental medicine and modern Western medical techniques at HealthMedPlus. But, unlike allopathic medicine, which frequently relies on pills to ‘medicate’ disease and symptoms, Eastern/Oriental medicine and Acupuncture focus more on the root causes of disease and the specific strategies to modify health problems and strategic follow-up testing, to achieve optimum mental, biochemical and physical health. Pills are rarely the only answer.
