As an alternative medicine practice, Vital Health Scores (VHS) in Traverse City, Michigan uses non-traditional medical treatments to improve patient health. Lead by the medical director, Douglas Wigton, DO, the healthcare team at VHS optimizes patient health by identifying the underlying cause of an illness, then taking steps to stop or reverse the progression of the illness.
The VHS mission statement is to determine the realistic health status of patients so that they may ultimately achieve.. robust and vibrant health and avoid the consequences of chronic disease.
VHS uses noninvasive techniques, including ultrasound and the DEXA Scanner, to gather information about heart and circulatory health and body mass index and metabolic parameters to assess patient health and create a treatment plan focused on wellness and prevention. The alternative practice also conducts breast thermography to screen for very early signs of breast cancer and offers testing for heavy metal poisoning.
In addition to health screenings, VHS also provides alternative treatments for various health conditions including prolotherapy to manage back pain, ultraviolet blood irradiation to boost the immune system, and chelation therapy for heavy metal poisoning and heart health.
VHS's policy is to provide full access to vital health information for all patients, and no one is refused service based on ability to pay. VHS lowers barriers so everyone has access to available services.
