GIORDANO Holistic Wellness Center (GHWC) is a unique combination of what naturopathic has to offer ~ and then some. GHWC grew out of Dr. Paul J. Giordano’s desire to help people truly be well. Dr. Giordano is a doctor of naturopathic medicine with extensive natural medicine training specializing in Difficult Cases. He has a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, a Bachelor of Science in Natural Health Sciences, a Bachelor of Music in Applied Clarinet, is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Clinical Board of Nutrition (ACBN), is Board Certified in Clinical/Therapeutic Nutrition with the International and American Associations of Clinical Nutrition (IAACN), is a Board Certified Addictions and Compulsive Disorders Professional with the American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders (ACACD), is Certified in Auriculotherapy with ElectroAcupuncture from the ACACD, Certified in Rehabilitation for Primary Care, formerly an injury prevention consultant with BackSafe of Future Industrial Technologies (FIT), a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN) in Massachusetts, and holds numerous other certifications, with well over 2000 hours in postgraduate education.
Dr. Giordano is uniquely trained, credentialed and qualified, unlike most practitioners, to provide patients with a comprehensive, multifactorial and customized cutting-edge array of natural and functional medicine differential diagnoses, services, treatments, and care. As a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Giordano assesses the whole patient as a person in a particular state of wellness or dis-ease, and not just their disease process, their bone-out-of-place, or their laboratory values ~ and the patient immediately realizes this from their initial introduction into the office when the case is taken and the bonding process occurs. He utilizes what he calls the Triangle that Determines the Wellness Status in all of us. The three sides of that triangle are: 1) Structural side, 2) Chemical, Nutrient, Drug side, and the 3) Mental, Emotional, Spiritual side. When any of the sides of this triangle are in dysfunction, it affects and may overpower the other sides of the triangle. This is assisted via Dr. Giordano's training and background as a certified member of the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK), a professional applied kinesiology (functional neurology). He also achieves customization of diagnosis and care via a thorough history, neurologic and laboratory testing prn, as well as Gene SNP testing (single nucleotide polymorphism with mucosal buccal swabbing and a questionnaire) coupled with genetically customized nutrients to help correct genetic variants affecting bone, insulin, heart, inflammation, oxidation, and detoxification. Dr. Giordano works successfully with Fibromyalgia patients, pain clinic patients, and speaks before the Crohn's and Colitis Support Groups at local hospitals, along with speaking before groups giving lectures and seminars. He is also a DAN! doctor working with patients in the spectrum in his Foxborough and Methuen offices, and is listed in Spectrum Magazine, the official directory of DAN (Defeat Autism Now!, a part of the Autism Research Institute) (also see TACA; SafeMinds; Autism Speaks ; Institute for Vaccine Safety; click here for more links and here for a non-exhaustive list of ND Applications as the list is endless!). How all of this...naturopathic medicine, holistic medicine, natural medicine, alternative medicine, complementary medicine, regenerative medicine, physical medicine, and functional medicine...can help the patient specifically is all explained during their Free Initial Consultation! Dr. Giordano sees patients in person and also treats via Telemedicine over the telephone with video conferencing available as needed.
The public is now becoming more aware of the importance and viability of maintaining wellness by reducing stress and learning more about diet, nutrition, exercise, and general well-being. There is a surging demand from the public to gain more information about their health and what natural alternatives are available to them ~ so that they may take charge of their health, and be more proactive and less reactive. This was recently confirmed by a study at Harvard University that indicated approximately 40% of the public was seeking alternative care. This is also becoming more evident on the Internet, in the print media, on television, and on radio. It is currently well over 50%, and approaching 60%. All of these people need natural health care in some form or fashion, but few of those people have the time or inclination or ability to sift through the products and marketing hype that they are confronted with. They need customized natural health care to their exact specifications. GHWC provides specialized services that are customized to the exact needs of each individual patient modeled in a natural medicine paradigm that is on the cutting edge. We proudly prescribe nutraMetrix products (where you can do a free nutritional analysis and given recommendations called the Nutri-Physical), Standard Process products, MediHerb products, Anabolic Laboratories products, Original Medicine products, Garden of Life products, Metagenics products, Emerson Ecologics, Miracle Noodle, along with other lines. We also proudly recommend and share our excitement about the first and only countertop reverse osmosis (measured in parts per billion/ppb) water purification system that creates the purest water possible from your tap with no plumbing or installation required...it's called AquaTRU. As Wellness Partners, GHWC patients look to Dr. Giordano for truly professional guidance whether it's about pure AquaTRU water, commercial grade blenders for creating healthful smoothies and elixirs on the road to wellness, understanding and compassion for a treatment plan to their specific condition and needs, with the kind of encouragement they need to help them take the mystery out of why they have their condition, and then to find that their body does actually work properly, which will lead to achieving ultimate wellness...!
CONGRATULATIONS ON TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH!
