Health Care in the 21st century
Sanoviv is a fully licensed hospital that offers a unique blend of conventional, complementary, alternative and integrative programs to help maintain your good health and to treat a wide range of diseases. Instead of treating just symptoms as is done in traditional medicine, Sanoviv uses “Functional Medicine” which addresses and treats the underlying causes of disease.
Our beautiful facility was built from the ground up with low toxin building materials, surrounded by beautiful gardens, and majestic ocean views – providing an ideal healing environment. Our Sanoviv chefs serve only organic meals that are gluten free, dairy free, and delicious to taste! We supply you with comfortable clothing that is made from natural fibers, allowing your body to breathe and detoxify. Our staff and doctors are chosen for their training and high credentials as well as their caring nature, so you can be confident of the very best quality care and attention possible.
Sanoviv is one of the rare facilities where the best of conventional medicine and proven alternative medicine are combined under one roof. The practitioners respect each other, listen, and work together on each patient’s case. When you visit us for one of our treatment programs, you will undergo a series of diagnostic tests, including many that are not available in the U.S. or Canada. You will also be seen by a team of medical professionals, including a medical doctor, nutritionist, chiropractor, biological dentist, psychologist, fitness trainer, bio-energetic specialist, and massage therapist. All of these practitioners meet together daily to discuss your individual health issues and customize a diagnostic and treatment plan for you.
Here at Sanoviv, we refer to each patient as our “guest.” From the moment you are picked up by our courteous professional drivers to your goodbye hugs at the end of your program, you become part of our family.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a whole-body approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. The goal is to identify and treat the root cause of illness. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can result in complex chronic diseases, and influence long-term health. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. Sanoviv was the first medical facility to be certified by the highly regarded Institute of Functional Medicine located in Washington.
At Sanoviv, your entire team of integrative medical professionals will work together to diagnose and treat your health concerns, attempting to get to the root of the problem, and provide solutions that truly make a difference in the health and vitality of each guest. Our primary area of expertise is chronic and degenerative diseases, which includes a growing list of illnesses for which conventional medicine offers little hope.
