Weight Loss/Metabolic Syndrome

By investigating the root causes of weight gain or difficulty losing weight, Dr. Sheldon can help patients lose weight both safely and effectively by taking a personalized approach to each individual. Dr. Sheldon is also experienced in the use of a medically supervised rapid weight loss program that can enable patients to lose up to 30 lbs in as little as 6 weeks. Tracking body composition and using targeted nutritional interventions helps keep patients on track and motivated to reach their goals! By teaching patients how to set up a balanced diet and incorporate an exercise routine into their lifestyle ensures the prevention of weight re-gain and allows patients to keep losing weight and reach their ideal body weight and body composition.

Digestive Health/IBS

Symptoms of poor digestive function such as gas, bloating, constipation and/or loose stools are often due to an imbalance of the flora (bacteria) of the digestive tract. Using non-invasive breath testing, this is often easily identified. Highly effective treatments are available that help correct this imbalance through the use of dietary changes, nutritional supplementation and/or medication. 

Environmental Allergies

Allergies are often unavoidable in day to day living. Examples include dust, mould, animal dander, trees, grasses and pollens which are seasonal or year round. Conventional treatment focuses on symptomatic relief through the use of anti-histamines, steroid sprays and inhalers, and allergy shots. Dr. Sheldon focuses on allergy elimination with compounded allergy drops containing ultra low doses of the allergens which functions to de-sensitize the immune system so that it is no longer reactive to the allergens! This treatment is called Sub-Lingual Immunotherapy, and has been proven to be as effective as conventional allergy shots, without the hassle or pain of needles. Drops are taken under the tongue daily until symptoms resolve completely and patients are often able to live allergy-free! 

Joint Pain & Injury

Being a former collegiate athlete, Dr. Sheldon has a special interest in the assessment and treatment of sports injuries and other causes of joint pain. Dr. Sheldon uses Regenerative Injection Therapies such as prolotherapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy which strengthen damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints to improve healing times and relieve pain. Custom prescription topical pain creams are also used to address and treat each individuals particular type of pain. Corrective exercise and physical rehabilitation are also discussed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
