The next time your hormones start acting up, or you feel like you’ve suddenly gained too much weight, or your immune system seems weaker than it should, explore the holistic treatments and options of Forum Health in Greenville.
Rather than handling just the symptoms of your illnesses or a host of other diseases, the providers at Forum Health treat your whole person – with customized care plans tailored to your individual needs.
“We provide personalized medicine that targets the underlying causes of diseases and health challenges,” said Dr. Connie Casebolt, medical director and clinic founder. “The intent is to reveal otherwise hidden issues that patients may not realize impact their everyday life.”
For example, suppose you have a dependence on alcohol or drugs. Or maybe you are suffering from adrenal fatigue – or perhaps depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure or even something as simple as acne.
Rather just prescribe medicine, which is only good for handling the biological part of your illness, Dr. Casebolt and her team will begin by thoroughly discussing your issue, with the intent of getting to its root causes.
“Every person’s health is affected by many factors – such as genetics, nutrition, environment, mental stability, social factors, sleep and exercise,” Dr. Casebolt said. “And instead of just masking the symptoms with medicine, we’re devoted to finding the sources of them.”
To this end, Forum Health combines principles of functional and integrative medicine with advanced medical treatments and technology, data analytics and collaborative relationships.
Some of Forum Health’s many specialties include: hormone optimization; sexual health; thyroid disorders; nutritional balance; beauty and aesthetics; autoimmune diseases; menopause; medical weight loss; longevity and regenerative medicine; gut health; IV therapy; and hair restoration.
Forum Health also offers hormone therapy – provided in the form of tiny, sterile hormones pellets that are implanted in a quick and painless procedure in the hip below the belt line. They slowly dissolve, releasing hormones that keep a person’s hormone levels steady for up to three to four months.
“Pellet therapy is our most common service,” Dr. Casebolt said. “It’s the most effective therapy to help keep a person feeling youthful and energetic.”
Forum Health’s treatments are becoming more and more attractive to people all across the United States. Based on a 2022 report by DailyNurse.com, a national online health care publication, almost 40% of U.S. patients routinely use alternative medicine. Part of the shift from conventional medicine has come from the COVID pandemic, less trust in public health care systems and people looking for herbal remedies, vitamins and more natural methods to help treat certain conditions.
With 22 locations in 12 states, Forum Health is expecting this trend to keep rising for the rest of the 2020s and beyond.
“Getting well again is easier once you understand what’s happening in your body,” Dr. Casebolt said. “That’s why we look at the whole you for effective solutions to anything that’s wrong – and then stick with you to keep it that way.”
