Is Fidalgo Island Health Center Right for Me?
Since 1985, our primary focus has been improving the health and lives of people in the Anacortes area. Our patients come to us for a wide range of issues*. But we have to be honest with you: not everyone is successful with our program. That’s because you are an active participant in your care, and your success depends on how you implement the healing strategies we recommend.
If you can answer “YES” to these three questions, you would be a good candidate for working with us to improve your health, energy, and vitality!
- Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get your health back?
- Do you believe your health is ultimately your responsibility?
- Are you willing to invest in your health, whether or not it is covered by insurance?
We are committed to working with you on your health. All we ask is that you make the same commitment to yourself!
But don’t take our word for it. Hear from people just like you who have reclaimed their heath with our help!
What conditions do you treat?
Actually, we don’t treat any conditions. Disease conditions and symptoms arise when something interferes with your innate healing capacity. Our focus is on finding the underlying interference which is causing your disease or symptoms, and your body can then heal itself. You are your own best doctor.
Many conditions, respond well to this healthcare approach, including (but not limited to):
allergies, asthma, anxiety, autoimmune disorders, back/neck/joint pain, blood sugar regulation, chronic fatigue, depression, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, frequent colds and flu, learning disorders, lowered immunity, low energy, menstrual disorders, numbness, sciatica, sinusitis, skin problems, and weight problems.
How are you different than a typical doctor?
To call America’s current system “health care” is a misnomer. It would be better called “sick care.” Standard practice is a system of disease management, focused on “fixing” symptoms with drugs and surgery, which can lead to further interventions to counteract the side effects of treatments. We look first at the underlying causes of illness, help the body tap into its own healing power, and put you in control of your own health.
Do you take my health insurance?
The health strategies we offer are not covered by health insurance. The insurance system is based on disease management, not wellness. There are no diagnostic or procedural codes associated with the services we offer at Fidalgo Island Health Center, therefore we do participate in any health care plans, and do not bill insurance for any of our services.
