We are excited to offer a new patient service. Dr. Lori Gritz is now offering Biological System Reviews. Blood, urine, saliva and other fluids offer a window into the health and balance within our bodies. Using a microscope, samples are examined to educate ourselves about diseases and other factors than can negatively affect our health and well-being. Microscopy looks for the underlying causes of disease, it's literally a real-time, "inside look" at the body. Armed with this knowledge, you and your medical provider can make better decisions about your diet, supplementation and other options in your ongoing health and wellness treatment plans.

Hi, I’m Tauri. I may be small and hidden behind piles of charts, but usually you’ll see me behind the front desk, talking to my headset, seeking health care justice for our patients from insurance companies.
In addition to my front desk role at Pacific Center of Health, I am an herbalist and nutrition educator and, as you’ll soon see, my suggestion for pretty much everything in life is: “bring more plants into your life”…
When it comes to keeping cool as we transition into autumn, plants will make you keep you the coolest cat in town. But how, you meow?
1. Learn to love keeping plants in your home. Human eyes are more sensitive to the color green, and I personally begin to feel deprived after a few days of chlorophyll-deprivation in my daily view.
As we know, plants filter the carbon dioxide we exhale and produce oxygen. So if you have enough plants, they’ll create an atmosphere of ozone right in your home. This is nature’s air conditioner.
As this article began to form, it became quickly apparent the scope of this topic is much broader than could possibly be covered in one post – one could actually spend years researching and writing a series of books. By the time the later volumes were finished and published, the early volumes would likely (hopefully!) need updates and editing because of new research and advances in care. Autoimmune and Chronic Inflammatory disease are quite possibly the next epidemic in health care – according to Amy Myers M.D. the incidence of autoimmune disease has tripled over the past 50 years (3)!

Wellness is more than the absence of pain
"I have been a patient at Pacific Center of Health for several years. The level of care I receive has been excellent. I was having a great deal of difficulty with asthma and the side effects of medications. After getting a series of treatments, my asthma condition cleared up completely. It has been about five years since that occurred and I am happy to report that I am still asthma free! I try to have acupuncture treatments about every six weeks to maintain the good health that I now have. I also enjoy the treatments a great deal, it puts me into a state of incredibly deep relaxation and I walk out of the session feeling revitalized." ~ Anne F.
