At BellaVive Natural Health Clinic, we offer consultations that provide our clients with the ability to make informed choices about what types of remedies will be the most functional and beneficial for their situation. Dr. Kimberly Nguyen customizes her own herbal formulas and nutritional recommendations based on the unique concerns and needs of her clients. The formulas are either high quality Chinese herbal extracts in powder form or high quality Western botanical herbal tinctures. The choice will be based on the individual patient. Nutritional recommendations are also dependent upon the needs of the patient. Many times our patients come in with bags full of supplements they are currently taking. At BellaVive Natural Health Clinic, our goal is to help you choose the right nutrients to meet your daily needs. We highly recommend a nutrition consultation with Dr. Nguyen to help figure out your nutrient deficiencies and to plan out how to incorporate nutrition in your daily meals. Dr. Nguyen believes that eating the right foods and eating a well balanced diet will provide most people with all the necessary nutrients. She also realize that there are times when a client is unable to meet their nutrient needs from food. When this occurs, Dr. Nguyen will recommend a more personalized selection of nutritional supplementation. The products offered at BellaVive Natural Health Clinic are from companies that go through rigorous nutrient selection, quality control and manufacturing process. By choosing companies that meet these standards, we are able to offer our clients the highest quality products. All of our nutritional supplements contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives. The nutrients are retained in their original form which makes them more effective and easily absorbed. In addition, there are no toxic glues, binders and lubricants in our supplements. These toxic glues and binders are usually listed as "other ingredients" in many nutrition products in the market.

BellaVive Natural Health Clinic's mission is to provide the community with resources to enhance and optimize the health of each individual. However, many of our remedies are prescription only. We apologize, but we do not offer recommendations without a consultation with Dr. Nguyen. All consultations are by appointment only.

We also offer mail orders and drop shipment to our patients. Please email us at bvclinic@yahoo.com for more information.

Herbal Medicine

Many plant substances are powerful medicines. Where single chemically-derived drugs may only address a single problem, botanical medicines are able to address a variety of problems simultaneously. Their organic nature makes botanicals compatible with the body's own chemistry; hence, they can be gently effective with few toxic side effects.  Our Traditional Eastern herbs are grown in the hills and mountains of Taiwan and our Western herbs are grown mostly here in the United States, but could be found around the world.  See link at the bottom of the page for more information.

They invest in comprehensive testing, sourcing the highest-quality ingredients, and creating the cleanest manufacturing process to provide unparalleled solutions for our clients' health.

As we age, our skin loses vital nutrients as a result of sun exposure, hormonal changes, poor diet and poor circulation. Mesolift is used to treat and slow the process of aging. This treatment results in improved tonicity, elasticity and appearance resulting in a clear, attractive complexion, radiant, glowing and youthful skin.

DOES MESOLIFT REQUIRE SURGERY?
No, there is no surgery and no “down-time”. You may return to your daily routine or place of work immediately.

WHAT IS INVOLVED?
A series of micro-injections with the mixture is introduced to the skin.

Mesolift allows the true restructuring of the skin tissue since the formulation has been fully designed to favor the different biological reactions of the architecture of the skin by supplements:

* The vitamins provide an anti-deficiency function
* The amino acids allow better protein construction
* The minerals guarantee the ionic balance of the medium
* The coenzymes activate the biochemical reactions
* The nucleic acids stimulate synthesis

VITAMINS
Mesolift includes vitamins required for the good exogenous biological balance of the skin. Below are some examples:
* Vitamin A acts on the flexibility of the skin by regulating the growth of epidermic cells. By acting on the keratinization process, it favors cicatrisation and partially corrects the thinning of the derma due to skin aging.
* Vitamin E is an antioxidant due to its major anti-radical properties. It maintains the integrity of tissue by fighting the formation of toxic peroxides.
* Vitamin C helps stimulate the synthesis of collagen and inhibit the synthesis of melanin.
* Vitamin D is indispensable for the synthesis of calcium by the direct action on the phospho-calcic metabolism.
* Vitamin B and its sub-groups are excellent anti-deficiency substances and are indispensable for the good biological balance of the skin.
* Vitamin K plays a major role in the regulation of the micro-circulation.

AMINO ACIDS
Amino acids are stable, water-soluble and amphoteric compounds that form the structural molecular elements in proteins. They are the basis of the tissue architecture of the skin.

MINERALS
Minerals help stimulate different cell activities and, as a result, improve different biological metabolisms. This is particularly true for the skin.

COENZYMES
Coenzymes are non-protein organic compounds. When combined with an enzyme they improve the speed of metabolic reactions of the organism. Transcutaneous supplements of nucleic acids stimulate the synthesis of the noble proteins of the derma and thereby restructure the entire tissue.

DOES MESOLIFT REPLACE A FACE-LIFT?
No, Mesolift improves skin tone and texture. Many of our patients report that their skin feels tighter.

WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS?
Most patients see results immediately after their first treatment but other patients can takes weeks to fully take effect.

IS MESOLIFT PERMANENT?
We continue to age. If you like the results, you will most likely continue with a few sessions per year.

WHY DO I NEED MORE THAN ONE TREATMENT?
Mesolift is usually performed in an initial series of treatments spaced 1 – 2 weeks apart. The effects of Mesolift treatment are cumulative. Your body will slowly develop collagen and elastin over time.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
There is a small chance of bruising which can easily be covered. Any potential bruising is minimized using our technique.

Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT) is the injection of homeopathics or vitamins into acupuncture points to help with pain management, general health, and palliative care. It’s not a substitute for traditional needle acupuncture, but rather an additional treatment that may be beneficial to the patient.

How does AIT work?

Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT) activates acupuncture points much in the same way as the insertion of needles, but with additional healing provided by the injectables that are used during the injection. AIT is associated with minimal discomfort and less post-injection soreness. Many patients will notice a positive response to their pain levels shortly after treatment.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Acupoint Injection Therapy?

Some of the more common conditions treated with Acupoint Injection Therapy include:
Shoulder Pain
Knee Pain
Low Back Pain
Foot Pain
Tennis Elbow
Optimize the Immune System

How Many Treatments Will Be Required?

Most patients will notice a change immediately following your Acupoint Injection Therapy. However, most conditions will require multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve the desired optimum healing result. When the natural therapeutic injectables are introduced into the affected area, the body easily absorbs the substance and answers with a quick immune response. By applying the injectables directly on acupuncture points, the power of both the acupuncture point and the biotherapeutic medicine are greatly enhanced. Furthermore leaving a deposit of medicine in the injection side will activate and stimulate the acupuncture point for a longer period of time, enhancing the therapeutic effect. Therefore, AIT can help to speed up healing and restore health.

The name homeopathy, coined by its originator, Samuel Hahnemann, is derived from the Greek words for ‘similar suffering’ referring to the ‘like cures like’ principle of healing. Hahnemann was born in Germany two hundred and fifty years ago. At this time the old world-view was being renovated and traditional beliefs, many flimsily based upon superstition, were being increasingly subjected to the rigour of experimental scrutiny and assessment. The practice of Homeopathy is based upon science while its application is an art.

Homeopathy is founded on two principles that have occurred regularly throughout the history of medicine, both in eastern and western worlds. The first principle of ‘like cures like’ can be looked at in several ways. One way is to assume that the body knows what it is doing and that symptoms are the body’s way of taking action to overcome illness. This healing response is automatic in living organisms; we term it the vital response. The similar medicine acts as a stimulus to the natural vital response, giving it the information it needs to complete its healing work. Since the initial action of the vital response plus the medicine is to increase the strength of the symptoms, this is our first indication of internal healing taking place, of diseases being cured from within – pushed outwards along the established routes of past and present symptoms.

Before the medicines are decided upon, their curative powers are discovered by testing them out on healthy human subjects and carefully noting emotional, mental and physical changes. This is termed a ‘proving’. This information constitutes the basis for ‘like cures like’, for a medicine’s unique symptom picture must match up with the individual’s unique expression of their disease, that is, the present and persisting symptoms of the disease.

The second principle, that only ‘the minimum dose’ should be employed is based upon the understanding that the stimulus of the medicine works from within the vitality and is not imposed from the outside. Only enough is administered to initiate the healing process, which then carries on, driven by its own internal healing mission. Homeopathic medicines given in minimum doses, while they do stimulate the body’s vital response, do not produce the gross side effects that are so often the pit-fall of conventional treatment.

Why is homeopathy so popular?

Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring about health and well being.
You are treated as an individual, not as a collection of disease labels.
Homeopathy treats all your symptoms at all levels of your being – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical and finds the ‘like cures like’ match for them.
Homeopathically prepared remedies, providing the minimum dose, are gentle, subtle and powerful. They are non-addictive, and not tested on animals.
