Why Us?

We think you are unique and your care should be as personalized as you are.

We believe your health span should equal your life span.  But every person is special and unique.  Each of us has a personalized combination of physical, chemical, and mental pieces that must be placed together perfectly to accomplish this task.

We are here to discover your puzzle pieces and help you put them together.  Once you have discovered your unique combination to health, you will become your own healthcare provider!  You will only need us for support or if there is a problem.

Isn’t that the way healthcare is supposed to be?

To understand what we stand for a little bit better, we will begin by sharing some simple but powerful ideas about our beliefs about health.

The first concept is called your Health Bank Account

The best way to begin to harness your ability to heal is to understand how you age in the first place.  When you were young, all your organs and tissues were new and vital and full of health.  Think of this vitality like you would a bank account.  When you are young, you have plenty of extra money (or health) in your account to do terribly stressful things to your body and still  get away with it.


You could eat anything you wanted, get little to no sleep, abuse your body physically, smoke, drink or indulge in many other poor lifestyle choices and seem to get away with it.  But every one of those choices made a withdrawal from your Health Bank Account. 


Over time, these withdrawals begin to have a serious effect on your ability to bounce back and heal from that level of abuse.  We all know people who are 40 years old but look 60 years old.  These people have made way too many withdrawals from their Health Bank Account.  But we also know people who are 60 years old but look 40 years old.  These people have been depositing more into their Health Bank Account than they are taking out. 


The great news is that it is never too late to start depositing massive amounts of health back into your account.  This is what the Tuscola Pain & Wellness Center is all about.


The second concept is Nobody Else is like You.


“Most prescription medicines do not work on most people.  The vast majority of drugs – more than 90 percent – only work for 30 to 50 percent of the people.” 

Dr. Allen Roses, former global vice president of genetics at GlaxoSmithKline, 2003


So why is everybody treated with the same drugs?  If drug therapy only works half of the time at best, shouldn’t different options be available for different people?  The Tuscola Pain & Wellness Center thinks so. 


If you brought 50 people together who were diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and did complete biomarker testing on each of them, you would find 50 completely different combinations of reasons for their Type 2 Diabetes.  Some would be due to digestive problems.  Others would be due to stress handling problems.  Many would be occurring because of an immune system compromise.  The list goes on and on.


Our job is to provide you with a completely personalized assessment to understand your unique  situation and provide you with a complete roadmap of your individual journey to health.  Just like your fingerprint, no one is like you.  Shouldn’t your solution be as individual as you are?


You know things are not going to get better on their own.  If you are ready to demand improvement in yourself and move forward in your health, then use the link below to schedule your appointment to come see us.

We can’t wait for you to be our next success story!  

What We Do?

We Provide Hope with a Plan.

We believe everyone can become healthy.  Young, old, injured, sick, it doesn’t matter.  If you have breath in your body, you have the Innate Power given to you by God, to heal.  Our job is to remind you of this fact and provide you with a realistic picture of what your future could look like if you decide to take on your journey back to true health.

Once you understand and can truly believe you can achieve that level of health, we will provide you with a plan to accomplish that vision of health.  Your journey back to vibrant health won’t be without effort, but you are definitely worth it!

The best way to get the big picture of what we do is to look at the Phases of Health Restoration below:

Above is a big picture view of how you will recover your health. This graph includes your Chemical health (diet, supplements, hormones, detoxification/elimination, and your immune system). This graph also includes your Structural Health (Exercise, stretching, strength and posture).

As you can see, Customized Health Recovery is broken up into 3 phases. Phase A is when you reduce both the Chemical and Structural stress that are part of your daily lifestyle right now.

Phase B is balancing your Blood Sugar and Hormones. This phase is where physical changes, like significant permanent weight loss begins.

Phase C is when the weight stays off and your life span will equal your health span. When you build your immune system to the point that you can fight off all disease, you will remain healthy for your entire life.

The next thing to notice on this image is the dotted line that starts in the top left and the solid line that starts at the bottom left. The dotted line represents how well your body is digesting and reacting to carbohydrates and the food you are currently eating. The solid line represents how well you are digesting and using proteins and fats to rebuild your health.

Our experience and research has shown that even though you might not be having digestive symptoms, improving your digestive health is critical to rebuilding your body for the last time. If you can’t digest properly, you can’t rebuild.

Let’s look at each phase in more detail.

In this first phase, you will focus on reducing carbohydrates and food intolerances/allergies to decrease inflammation. This will help you feel better, sleep better, and have less pain with your daily activities.

You will also focus on completely digesting your food (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) in your diet. We will customize your diet, which may include a smoothie to increase your nutrients. You will also focus on stretching activities like yoga or exercise ball sessions to increase your strength and flexibility while decreasing your pain.

All these things are introduced and you become part of our tribe of people who really want to get their health back. You have complete access to us by email, text, and phone to get all your questions answered and we will hold you accountable to do what you say you want to do. We love helping people, now you are part of us!

In Phase B of your Customized Health Recovery Program, you will focus on increasing your metabolism to balance your blood sugar. You will add resistance exercise to build muscle along with light cardiovascular exercises. You will also focus on balancing your hormones to improve sleep and feel better throughout your day.

Phase B is when the magic of weight loss begins. As you are balancing your blood sugar and your hormones, your food allergies and sugar craving disappear and your ability to burn fat and build lean muscle improves. This is when your pants are too big and you start noticing the positive physical changes you have been dreaming of for years!!

In the final phase of your Health Recovery Program, you can handle a detoxification plan without major symptoms. You will add more intense exercise to sculpt your body. During this phase, we will support your immune system to target specific organs and keep you healthy for life. When your immune system is strong, no disease can stop you from being healthy!

Once you have conquered all 3 Phases, you will be able to live your life to the fullest. You will be in the top 5 percent of people who look good, feel good and age gracefully.

WARNING: This program is not for everyone. If you are not willing to take charge of your own health, don’t schedule a Free Comprehensive Health Evaluation.

You know things are not going to get better on their own. You have tried so many things that haven’t worked. You know you must do something different, but you aren’t sure where to go next. We get it. But if you are ready to demand improvement in yourself and are ready to do whatever it takes to get your health back, schedule a Free no-obligation Comprehensive Health Evaluation to see if our proven solution is right for you.

I can’t wait for you to be our next success story,

How We Help?

You can’t manage what you can‘t measure

Imagine your life with more energy and vitality.  Picture yourself wearing new clothes that are multiple sizes smaller than the clothes you have on right now.  Feel the confidence of walking into the room and knowing your life is on track and nobody can ever take it away from you.

To get to these feelings for you in the shortest period, we must get very personal.  In this article, all the different testing procedures we may use to understand your unique situation will be explained. 

As with most health-related testing (as opposed to sickness-related testing), none of these procedures are usually covered under your medical insurance plan because they aren’t considered “medically necessary”.  Tests are only medically necessary when they are used to rule in or out a disease.  If you don’t have a full-blown disease, you will be told to go home and get sicker so the next test will show a disease.  Then they will use drugs and surgery to treat you.

We don’t want you to wait until you have a disease.  We want you to live life on your own terms and never go to a doctor again.  We believe you are your best healthcare provider.  Therefore, all the tests we describe in this article are not considered medically necessary.

All the tests we provide can be described as biomarker testing.  A biomarker test is a specific measurement of a gland, tissue or system that is important for making you feel better, live longer, and look better.  Every biomarker we assess is designed to give us objective data we can go back and compare over the course of your care to see how you are doing. 

The biggest difference between the biomarkers we use and regular medical testing from your other healthcare providers is our testing is designed to keep you out of a disease state instead of trying to manage the disease state you are already in. 

Your Tuscola Pain & Wellness Center biomarker assessment could include any or all the following tests based on your current level of health.

  1. Vital Signs – Blood Pressure, Pulse, Temperature, and Heart Rate to get a baseline.
  2. Physical Examination – We will inspect, palpate, listen to, measure and document any physical issues you are currently dealing with. This is done from a Functional point of view, not a disease point of view.
  3. Blood Testing – This is done for a different reason than your other healthcare providers. We will look at the functional or optimal range of your blood values, not the disease based values.
  4. Saliva Testing – This type of testing is done to assess your stress and sex hormone system. Saliva only contains active hormones.
  5. Body Composition Analysis – These measurements are used to assess how much muscle, fat, and fluid you are carrying around.
  6. Fitness Assessment – Your fitness level is very important to increase your ability to live life on your own terms. We measure your strength, flexibility, and endurance.
  7. Immune System – Your Immune System is your first line of defense for invaders from the outside world. We have found most people have compromised immune systems and can’t fight off invaders like they should. 
  8. Digestive System – Your digestive system contains 70% of your immune system and is how you digest and absorb all the nutrients your body needs to get healthy. Most people’s digestive system is compromised and they never knew it.
  9. Stress Handling System – Once your ability to handle stress is decreased, your ability to live life on your own terms and break free from disease is almost impossible. We want to change this for you.


Our assessment process is designed to leave no stone unturned.  We will walk all around your health issues to create the systematic plan to take you where you want to go.

Most of the biomarker tests are included as part of your Free Comprehensive Health Evaluation.  You will not undergo any other test or procedure before you have full knowledge of any extra fee or charge for that biomarker test if it is not included in the Free Comprehensive Health Evaluation.    We believe too much testing is totally unnecessary.  So, if you don’t need a test you will not be undergoing it. 

You know things are not going to get better on their own. You have tried so many things that haven’t worked already. You know you must do something different, but you aren’t sure where to go next...We get it.

But if you are ready to demand improvement in yourself and are ready to do whatever it takes to get your health back, schedule a Free no-obligation Comprehensive Health Evaluation to see if our proven solution is right for you.  We can’t wait for you to be our next success story!
