Hello from Dr. Dale
Hello Everyone! I am very happy to say that our new website, with lots of member support is developing very rapidly. As you will see below there are many new articles available for our patients.
I would like to say a special thank you to Niko, who does much of the input into the site after I write the articles, as well as helping many patients sign up as members, while they are at the clinic.
In addition to the website as added support for your Wellness for Life quest, our frequency of newsletters is slowly increasing and you will be seeing more and more product and condition articles in the newsletter, so you can better understand how to create a Lifetime of Wellness.
Please remember to always let me/us know if there is any way we can better serve your healthcare needs.

Important Probiotic Update
Saccharomyces boulardii (this is both the product name and the active ingredient's name), is our new replacement for FloraStor. As some of you may know, I have used FloraStor with great success over the past 5 years. For certain gastro-intestinal conditions, it has been the most effective probiotic option I have ever seen. Recently the active ingredient in FloraStor, has for the first time in the U.S., become available to other companies, and I have switched to the Ortho Molecular brand, as it has the same quality and quantity per capsule, but at a much better price. The savings to you is $17.00 per bottle, plus Ten additional capsules!
The active ingredient, Saccharomyces boulardii, is a strain of yeast that was first isolated by the French scientist, Henri Boulard, in 1923. Bouldard observed natives in Southeast Asia chewing on the skin of the lychee fruit to help control the severe gastrointestinal affects of Cholera.
S. boulardii has been used for over 56 years with an extremely safe record. It is a yeast that promotes the normal balance of intestinal flora. I use it therapeutically for all forms of diarrhea, including Travelers diarrhea (it is part of our Travelers Protocol), antibiotic induced diarrhea, and parasitic induced diarrhea. I also use it with patients who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and many patients who have challenges with regularity.
S. Boulardii has anti-toxin, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial affects. Additionally, it has been shown to increase the immune response in the intestines (and in some cases lungs), as well as creating an environment that promotes healthier intestinal cells.
In addition to our pure S. boulardii, we also have a new product called Ortho-Biotic (capsules or powder), which includes S. boulardii as one of 7 strains of probiotics, and a children's powdered version called Flora Boost. This broad spectrum probiotic for many patients is the best choice for long term intestinal health.
Please let me know if you have any questions as to, which probiotic is the best choice for you, and what your dosage should be.
Announcing Our New Massage Therapist
We are proud to offer massage at our office from Marla Van Stein, LMT. Marla has been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 1991. She graduated from UCSB with double majors in Environmental Studies and Education. She completed her massage training at Resource Training Institute in Santa Barbara. Over the years, she has studied many different kinds of massage and integrates different combinations depending on her clients' needs and preferences. Her training includes: deep tissue, reflexology, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, as well as infant and pregnancy massage.
Marla believes that all of us are in need of more positive, nurturing touch in our lives. Slowing down from the business and pressures of life, and learning to relax is important to our quality of life. Massage has been shown to increase circulation, improve respiration, ease digestion and facilitate recovery from muscular injury and soreness. It relaxes the body and mind, and calms the spirit.
Marla works with people of all ages with a wide array of needs including: teaching parents how to massage their babies, pregnancy and post-natal care, cancer patients, elderly, and many people with varying stress and tension patterns. Marla's massages ease us into a slower way of life, where we can lie on a warm table with gentle music and calming hands to work out life's stresses, while promoting both healing and relaxation. Marla brings compassion, humor, peace and skill to each session.
Marla has lived in Carpinteria for 18 years with her husband and 2 sons. She enjoys reading, movies, yoga, walking on the beach, hiking and music.If you are interested in Marla's care, please call her at: (805) 252-4261
