There is nothing more gratifying than hearing a patient who has struggled with health issues for years tell us that we changed his or her life.
Glen Ellyn, IL (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
DuPage Health and Wellness Center in Glen Ellyn, IL is celebrating its 15th anniversary working with families in greater Chicago to discover and address the underlying causes of chronic health conditions. Using the BioSET System, which combines the most modern approaches to applied immunology and nutrition with traditional Chinese medicine and acupressure, Jim Flaherty and his team of Glen Ellyn chiropractors and massage therapists have helped over 3,100 patients regain their health. “What started as a business venture quickly became a mission to find help for my grandson, who was born with Down syndrome. He was only five years old at the time and was struggling with a variety of immune issues. What we discovered in the process has become the cornerstone of our practice today—a way to help people suffering from food and environmental allergies and sensitivities.”
In addition to their specialized work testing and treating patients for allergies and sensitivities, the healthcare professionals at DuPage Health and Wellness also provide chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, nutritional counseling, spinal decompression therapy and orthotics. After 15 years, the Center continues to be focused on holistic, drug-free and non-surgical approaches that bridge the gap between conventional and alternative medicine. And the motivation has never changed. Flaherty explains, “I think what motivates us most is seeing the difference we've made in the direction and quality of our patient’s lives. There is nothing more gratifying than hearing a patient who has struggled with health issues for years tell us that we changed his or her life.”
“When the Center opened its doors for the first time in September 1998, there were two chiropractors and a part-time massage therapist in the office. We've grown since then to meet the needs of our community. The team now includes three DCs, one LMT and me.” DuPage Health and Wellness has grown in other ways as well. “We’re always looking for more effective ways to help our patients. Spinal decompression is just one really great example that has helped many patients with back problems to avoid surgery.”
While the focus and motivation have remained the same, Jim Flaherty and his team stress the importance of change and improvement. “DuPage Health and Wellness is always on the lookout for new and better ways to address our Patients’ health-related issues. In the area of food and environmental allergies and sensitivities, we now have 15 years of experience testing and treating over 3,100 patients. We've obviously learned a lot in that time, but we continue to learn from each and every patient we see what works and what doesn't work.” That learning has also allowed the team to become more efficient. “In the past two years, new technology advancements have let us to test and treat a broader range of health issues than ever before. But—at the same time—the average number of treatments necessary to achieve results for the patient has dropped very significantly. On average, the original protocol used to be around 40 treatments. Today, we can accomplish the same thing in 10. Our goal is to get our patients better, faster without sacrificing the quality of the results. So our protocol is much different now than when we started in 1998.”
