The digestive tract, also called the “gut,” is the home to more of your body’s neurotransmitters than the brain! The health of the digestive system is beyond important in maintaining long-term health.
The digestive system houses the gut microbiome, which means all of the microbes in your intestines. This microbiome actually acts as another organ that is crucial not only to your digestion but to your overall health.
In fact, the gut microbiome controls your digestion, your immune system, your central nervous system and many other vital body functions. If your gut’s health is compromised, then your whole body will be negatively impacted.
Here at the Karlfeldt Center, we believe that healing your gut is one of the first steps to wellness. Many of our services focus on balancing your digestive health so that your body can heal itself.

- Autonomic Response Testing
Autonomic Response Testing (ART) is a physical exam enhanced by biofeedback. The physician uses changes in muscle tone and resistance as indicators of how the autonomic nervous system responds to introduced stressors. This system is effective for most chronic and acute illnesses and is used in combination with other functional assessment tools to develop a restorative strategy.
Impacting the body on a micro-circulatory level, the Bemer employs a patented energy signal configuration to influence the circulatory system. This bio-physical application enables multi-faceted influence on the entire body, maintaining health and promoting healing.
- Food & Environmental Desensitization
Desensitization is a completely natural, non-invasive, and drug-free holistic treatment for reactions to food, dust, chemicals, or other environmental triggers. It works by activating specific acupuncture/acupressure points to “reset” the immune system or inflammatory responses. Suitable for all ages, desensitization may result in complete disappearance of sensitivities and allergies.
- Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet (GAPS)
The GAPS diet was created by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride to correct the balance of the gut flora and initiate healing of the the intestinal tract. Supporting proper digestion, healthy immune system response, and improved brain function, the GAPS diet is a powerful tool against many diseases that are rooted in gut problems.

- Homeopathic Medicine
Addressing the person as a whole to promote education, healing, and wellness on every level, Homeopathic Medicine is both safe and gentle. It works in a way that allows the body to restore itself. Homeopathy reviews every aspect of the patient’s physical, medical, emotional, and mental history to determine which symptoms should be addressed most urgently, and which remedies will stimulate the correct healing response.
- IV Nutrition
Intravenous Nutrition Therapy provides the means to feed vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into the bloodstream. These nutrients are helpful in correcting deficiencies on the cellular level. Oral intake does not allow for high enough doses due to the limits of the digestive system. From high doses of Vitamin C to help you through a common cold to heavy metal detoxification, IV therapy can benefit nearly every condition.
- Laser Energetic Detoxification
Laser Energetic Detoxification (LED) is an extremely powerful healing technique. Using lasers to increase the efficacy of specific homeopathic remedies, LED can increase the body’s ability to release toxins, activate the immune system, and balance certain hormones.
- Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is an approach to health care that uses natural, non-toxic therapies to treat the whole person and to encourage the self-healing process. Combining the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science, Naturopathy seeks to combine therapies in a way that is uniquely suited to the optimal healing of each person.
- Nutritional Microscopy
Blood tells us much about the individual’s health. Using a powerful microscope, we are able to look closely at blood cells. Through this examination, we can learn a great deal about the condition of your red and white blood cells, the amount of pathogens, and how well your digestive system is working. Vitamin deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, and inflammation, among other things can be identified through this simple test.
