Tired of Not Feeling Well?
Then Treat the Cause, Not the Symptom…

Specializing in Functional, Integrative Medicine
& Healing

Prevention & Healing of Iowa Prevention & Healing of Iowa was established in February 2006 by family nurse practitioner, Carolyn Walker. Our location is at 2650 - 106th St., Ste. 100, Urbandale, IA, 50322. Our phone number/fax/email address is found below. Click on the following link to find us on Google Maps. We moved to a new location June 2011. We are excited to be near Living History Farms looking out onto the trees, occasional deer and geese that live nearby.

Carolyn has been teaching Adult Education classes on the topic of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy since January 1999. She and her co-worker, Marty Rhea, added the Adult Ed class, Environmental Toxins and Your Health, in 2009. Please click on the P & H Calendar to find upcoming class dates.

Living in a toxic world can create many health challenges unknown to many traditionally-minded practitioners. Allopathic medicine does a great job with acute conditions but often falls short when it comes to chronic conditions.

It is very hard to address the underlying cause of a person’s illness in a 15 minute office visit—especially if one is not aware of testing that can be done to look at environmental toxins. It is our goal to help our clients in finding a “root cause” to their condition/symptomology if possible. Usually, this is not as easy as just focusing on one symptom. With each decade of life we are exposed to a variety of stressors be they emotional trauma (relationships, death, miasms), physical (injuries, genetic polymorphisms, infections—viruses, protozoa, amoeba, bacterial, parasite and more), chemical (pesticides, herbicides, plasticizers, dental amalgam, heavy metals, radiation, food choices and more). There can be any combination of these causing many different symptoms. We have incorporated the Zyto Elite and Zyto Evox technology into our practice to assist us in identifying the frequencies most out of balance in one’s body.

For those who are interested in having a consult with a practitioner at P & H, you will need to fill out a health history (and policy/procedure form if seeing Carolyn Walker). These forms will need to be mailed/faxed/delivered to our office at which time an initial appointment will be made. Please click on the Appointments link for these forms/more information.
