At Spark Health, we believe the key to losing weight and keeping it off is understanding the factors contributing to the problem.  These factors vary person to person, but they can include hormone imbalances, digestive problems, food intolerances or negative emotional environments. Our doctors will examine all of these factors, and work with you to create an individualized program that includes diet, exercise, lifestyle counseling, oral supplements and IV therapy.  Weight-loss programs increase cell membrane fluidity to allow toxins to exit the cell, as well as help maintain a proper blood sugar balance, healthy cholesterol level and appropriate digestion or absorption rates. Spark’s signature treatments support healthy weight loss and body detoxification, such as our Body Sculpt Shot or our Weight Loss and Cellular Detox IV bags.

Naturopathic doctors (ND) support patients with cancer to maximize overall health, fight disease processes and prevent or reduce side effects of standard cancer treatment regimens for patients who utilizing them. Spark Health doctors may recommend specific supplements or nutritional programs in an individualized treatment approach. Naturopathic doctors who specialize in naturopathic oncology understand both the standard treatments employed by medical, radiation and surgical oncologists, and how best to work in a collaborative model of cancer co-treatment. Spark Health doctors often help patients maintain their oncology treatment regimens while providing vital support reducing the side effects of those treatments. Naturopathic doctors are well aware of the multitude of ‘alternative therapies’ promoted to cure cancer and work to educate patients on evidence-based treatment modalities. Spark Health also screens for any potential interactions between conventional cancer therapies and natural products that may affect the efficacy of a treatment. This supports the natural cancer-fighting ability of the immune system in helping prevent recurrence or other types of cancer. If you’re interested in speaking with Dr. Aliza Cicerone and learning

Our bodies accumulate toxins from a variety of places: the air we breathe, food, household chemicals and even environmental factors.  It is important to help the body efficiently remove these toxins by improving how the organs of detoxification and elimination — liver, kidneys and the gastrointestinal tract —  function. Our Spark Health Detox Programs are designed to safely and effectively guide you through this process with an easy plan that balances your body and improves health from the inside out. If toxins are too rapidly released without being eliminated safely first, they can do more damage than good to your body. Our detox programs focus on improving and optimizing how your body’s own detoxification systems function. Spark Health Detox Programs patients experience increased energy, enhanced immune function, improved digestion, clearer skin, weight loss, pain relief and mental clarity, as well as reduced stress and tension.

Digestive health can be the key to long term health for many people, and many of the testing methods available only look for infectious or disease causing bacteria. At Spark Health, we look at all the aspects of the digestive system that impact our health: inflammation, immune system regulation and response, digestion and absorption of protein, fat, and other nutrients, yeast, parasites, and levels of both beneficial and harmful bacteria. This shows us the full picture of digestive system health and function, and allows us to use botanicals, prescription medications, and probiotics to balance and restore each patient’s unique gastrointestinal environment, or microbiome.
