Chronic Disease Screen
We see the effect of chronic disease on our families and community. A friend or family member suffers a heart attack or stroke or becomes diabetic or demented. Or it happens to us.
Our goal is to PREVENT AND REVERSE arterial and metabolic disease. We refer to Cure as a goal. This means the disease is reversed or put into remission without signs of the disease for years. When we treat cancer and achieve years of disease free life, we cautiously call it “cured.” The same outcome is possible for prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, atherosclerosis and periodontal disease. That means finding it early and reversing it. Don't wait to intervene once something has gone wrong. Rescue can save your life, but when seconds count, the ambulance will be here in minutes and the intervention could take hours.
The Center for Prevention developed our Cure Chronic Disease Screen process to detect and demonstrate your arterial and metabolic disease. This motivates early intervention and disease reversal. The process is noninvasive, quick and affordable. Screening is not covered by insurance or Medicare, but favorable findings can reduce the cost of unnecessary further testing while unfavorable findings support medical necessity and coverage for further testing and treatment to reverse the disease found in the screening process.
Some elements are similar to the Lifeline Screening program. But we designed our Health Screen to be more meaningful for early disease detection, reversal and in some cases cure.
Given their LIfeline results, clients are not told about opportunities to reverse mild to moderate disease. They promote monitoring of disease progression, waiting for it to be severe enough to refer you for intervention procedures like surgery or stents.
We think this is a missed opportunity to reverse disease before it causes death, disability or the life altering effects of intervention procedures.
If you've had a Lifeline Screening, we will review your results with you in a complimentary preconsultation. We provide the plan to reverse chronic disease found on your Lifeline scan!

Carotid Ultrasound Screen
Ultrasound reveals atherosclerotic plaque in the highly accessible carotid arteries. If plaque is seen, we recommend further detailed assessment using Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) measurement to quantify the disease and provide a baseline to measure treatment effectiveness.
Body Composition Analysis
The Inbody 570 uses Direct Segmental Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to report “what you are made of.”
This provides insight into Insulin Resistance/ Prediabetes/ Type 2 Diabetes as well as signs of other potential health risks. Measurement Motivates and Maintains Momentum to get off the carbs and off the couch.
Identifies current treatment, past events, family history and lifestyle issues that contribute to chronic arterial and metabolic disease. Guides recommendations to tailor further assessment recommendations to match risk, complexity and costs.
