Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Unlike conventional medical care providers, we first help patients heal but also empower them with knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now... with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!
Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.
Not only is each patient biologically unique, their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment... and let's not forget mindset (which plays a big role in your health).
After we do your intake, we may conduct further specialty lab testing (that your current doctor may not even know about). Plus, we also use other assessment tools to get the full picture of your health so that with a precise diagnosis, we can come up with a Transformational Wellness Plan unique to you.
Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of becoming healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.
We may leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We may harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.
In a typical 7-minute doctor's visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness... let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.
During our in-depth intake consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your illness. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of your illness.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike conventionally-trained doctors, our care team always focuses on getting to the root causes of your illness. We also examine the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the "up-stream" catalyst of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, along with mindset issues that all determine how healthy you are to date.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.
At Alliance Integrative Medicine, we are trained in up-to-date functional medicine – including the best, most advanced testing- and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals.

For years I have suffered from debilitation allergies. This year is the first year that I have been truly symptom-free. My quality of life has drastically improved. There are no words to adequately express my gratitude to Dr. Eric for his insightful attention and diagnostic abilities in setting my body straight.

I suffered for almost 4 years with Meniere’s disease – including hearing loss, tinnitus, frequent vertigo episodes and many unsteady days. After Dr. Woolford recommended acupuncture, I was anxious but decided to give it a try. I’ve had four acupuncture treatments and am having fewer and fewer unsteady days and no vertigo episodes! The combination of acupuncture, chiropractic care and nutritional changes has made all the difference! Thank you Dr. Woolford, Lisa and the great team at Alliance!

Three years ago, I began to react excessively to bugs, poison ivy, mold, perfume, wheat. I had to do up to 5 rounds of steroids per year and was sick all of the time. Did AAT with Eric and every single allergen is benign for me. NO MORE STEROIDS – A MIRACLE!
