For more than 25 years Dr. Harry Moore has worked with many other doctors in Physicians Associates but soon Moore will fly as a solo practitioner at the Moore Clinic for Wholeness in Health.
Moore will begin the practice of more functional medicine.
"You allow the body to heal on its own by removing whatever is there that will harm or impede healing and by adding things to the body that will aid in healing like nutritional supplements, sunshine and exercise," Moore said.
Moore said that there are five different toxins, which include heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants, opportunistic bacteria, bad electromagnetic energy and spiritual toxicity. Moore's practice will involve both identifying and removing toxins in the body.
By switching to this more natural way of healing, Moore said one must be truly committed.
"You have to be committed to a treatment that may not be instant," he said. "The benefit of this is that a significant amount of people could come off their prescription medicines by pursuing functional medicine paradigm. They have to be committed to changing their lifestyles, to take supplements, to change their diets and to get more sunshine."
The new treatment Moore has taken under his wing is not a quick fix, he said.
"It's not a sprint, it's a marathon," he said. "It takes multiple treatments and sometimes it takes months, even years."
Moore said he decided to make this switch due to family concerns.
"My wife was having a lot of difficulty so I was seeking answers," he said. "This led me into some non-traditional treatments that I was unaware of and I realized there was a need for this type of medicine. I realized that restoring people would be more satisfying than managing diseases."
Moore said that he will see his established patients and hopes to get new ones.
"I'll continue to see my patients as I get other ones," he said. "I plan to work five days a week instead of four to provide more access. When I stop doing hospital practice in February, I will probably expand my hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. instead of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m."
"This has put life and excitement back into my practice," Moore said.
