are generally every 4-12 weeks because the body requires time to detoxify and
heal. This practice does not focus on
acute care as much as long-term healing, rejuvenation, and solutions to chronic
long-standing problems. That does not
mean nothing happens in between your visits, rather it is your responsibility
to make the lifestyle changes and observations that are critical to your
success. Urgent appointments are often
available if you call and explain your needs.
If you are ever injured call us immediately to get therapy before the
condition becomes chronic.
E-mail is a great way to communicate
with our office, it can be overwhelming for us.
Yes, it saves us time on the phone re-writing your questions, updates, etc.
and it gives us a hard copy for your chart and a way for us to respond to you
directly. However, I hope that you will
honor our time in responding to e-mails.
For matters that only Dr. Kaslow can address, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send your email as an
attachment (Word, PDF, etc), this takes longer to read and can be a security
risk to our network. Lengthy E-mails are
typically responded to last since they require more time. For billing related matters, E-mail email@example.com. To reach Alana at the front desk, e-mail her
at FrontDesk@DrKaslow.com. For anything related to supplements such as
re-orders or questions, arrival times, back-orders, E-mail Supplements@DrKaslow.com.
have outstanding phlebotomists to draw
laboratory specimens in our office.
Since we spend a lot of time trying to track down labs results, giving
you the right kits, making sure the proper specimen gets done, we typically use
Pacific West Lab and LabCorp for routine tests.
For these specimens the lab will bill you/your insurance directly. Blood is collected Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays,
and Thursdays. You don't need an
appointment but please give us to a call to let us know you are coming in. Remember to not eat anything after dinner the
night before if you have been advised to fast for the test. Moderate water intake is fine to have
some patients have been reimbursed for supplements
that have been prescribed and purchased through our office, it requires a great
deal of work on your part. You must talk
directly with your insurance carrier (usually repeatedly) to explain that you
are intolerant to other forms of therapy, and that you have derived significant
and objective benefit for the first and only time from these specific agents. Insurers usually require that supplements are
specifically prescribed for you and not available except through a health
professional. We will not provide any
further letters or records, etc. other than a simple generic letter. You will still need to pay at the time you
receive your supplements, we will not bill insurance even if they begin paying
for them. However, most but not all supplements
purchased in the office should be eligible for Health Savings Account and
Flex Spending Account reimbursement.
of the specialized techniques that
we use to assess your health may not be
a covered service under your insurance plan.
are three main foundations of a
successful approach to health: 1) Giving your body the specific nourishment it
needs to function optimally (ex: vitamins, minerals, etc.); 2) Avoiding those
things or activities that make you worse (ex: allergic foods, sugar, caffeine,
etc.); and 3) Detoxifying or de-infecting something in your body that you can
not get rid of without help (ex: Candida, mercury, parasites, etc.).
these three fundamentals must always be addressed, two more aspects may need to
be included. The fourth component is
for individuals who have had a life event alter their health. It is for the person who says, "ever
since I had that… (accident, surgery, infection, etc.) I haven't been the
same…" These individuals may have
developed an interference field for
which diet, nutritional support, hormone balancing, etc. will only provide
partial resolution. Recovery is impeded
by an "interference field."
are three basic types of events that seem to interfere with healing: 1)
Physical trauma such as surgery, childbirth, car accident, bone fracture,
biopsy, etc; 2) Infection such as from immunizations, severe infections such as
a bad virus, dental abscess, etc; and 3) An emotional event such as a death,
abandonment, abuse, humiliation, etc.
Therapy removes "interference fields" and allows healing of these
refractory conditions. The underlying
reason is that the Autonomic Nervous System controls everything, even your
biochemistry and hormones. Neural
Therapy "resets" the autonomic nervous system, which is in turn the
master control of your health. Neural
Therapy is usually covered by insurance.
For more information, see my webpage on "Neural Therapy" at www.drkaslow.com.
fifth fundamental is identifying and reprogramming emotional behaviors that are
maladaptive. We all have behaviors and emotions that work against us. We do things that we know we should not. It is as though we sabotage ourselves, and
then we pay the price. Why is this? Why do we choose to do things that we know
are not in our best interest? Why do we
feel anxious or irritable or aloof or angry or frustrated or guilty for no
apparent reason? Especially when it
"gets the best of us." Many
patients get better for awhile, only to relapse again later. We fail to adapt to the higher level of
function. Often it is a matter of
practicality or lifestyle choices.
However, too often it is our own maladaptive emotions that revert us
back. It is often the consequences of
these feelings that affect our health and our ability to feel wonderful.
focusing on the nervous system, we try to balance and harness the control it
has over all aspects of living - biochemical, hormonal, immune, and emotions. Emotions should be under the control of your
nervous system - the unconscious nervous system. So if you are told that it's all in your
head, there is some truth to it.
aim is to use techniques that address the core of the problem. For example, unlinking or re-programming your
emotions to your physical response so that your nervous system works on the
same team as the rest of you. There are specific connections between our
emotions and our physical body, they probably involve acupuncture meridians. It seems that specific locations on your body
are receptors to the outside world. Just
as your eyes are for vision, your ears are hearing, your nose for smelling,
etc. these special sensory sites are receptors for what is called subtle
energy. "Subtle energy"
includes things you know are there but are not felt physically - like
radiowaves, magnetism, etc. It may also
be a spiritual matter - like prayer.
There is no question they exist, we just take them for granted or do not
appreciate them because we don't understand them. Homeopathy and acupuncture are examples.
subtle energy at specific locations in a specific sequence has been used
successfully and there is convincing evidence that it impacts the nervous
system. There is great healing potential
in this modality. Our nutritional therapist has been trained in specific
healing techniques that rapidly get to the crux of the problem and help you
re-program yourself to be free of these maladaptive subconscious responses.
together we can accomplish many things.
Our goal is to guide you, enable you, and assist you in attaining and
maintaining the best possible health. It is an honor and a blessing to care for
you. We look forward to our
