Welcome to Idaho Brain & Body Institute, where healing can actually happen!
Born, raised, and loving living in Idaho, I am Dr. Phillip Redd, DO. For those who may not know, as a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) I am trained in all things in which MD’s are trained, although the basic philosophy is unique. That is, DO’s believe there is an innate connection between the body, mind and spirit. This boils down to a realization that our bodies have an inherent ability to heal.
As a DO I have worked in military and traditional healthcare/hospital settings where I have witnessed the pain, frustration and suffering of many individuals with chronic disease conditions. I also have experienced first-hand the devastation that individuals and their families go through with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
I am constantly approached by individuals who are discouraged and frustrated with “health care” and not being listened to. People have told me they have been scolded and laughed out of doctor’s offices. Others are told it’s just a psychological problem and are given a pill. I call this “sick-care.” It comes down to this – most “health care” providers are ill-equipped to help patients actually find health. They don’t know how to help or empower them.
Unlike most DO’s and other providers in practice, I take a ‘functional’ approach to medicine. This means that through my diagnostics, root-cause analysis, and treatments, my patients actually get results. I successfully treat early-stage Alzheimer’s Disease and cognitive decline, thyroid and Hashimoto’s Disease, type II diabetes, parasite and other intestinal disorders, as well as many other difficult to treat conditions.
At Idaho Brain & Body Institute, my team and I utilize this functional and integrated medicine approach to customize treatment for each individual’s case. We recognize the necessity to get the right tests in order to find and remove the root causes and irritants from the body. My multi-therapeutic approach is key to my patients restoring their cellular vitality and metabolic balance.
My training in functional medicine and neurology has helped me emerge from that “sick-care” or “pill for an ill” model to develop a process to successfully treat Alzheimer’s disease; autoimmune disease; thyroid conditions; type 2 diabetes; chronic fatigue and Insomnia; parasites, candida, and leaky gut; hypertension; mental health disorders; and chronic back and joint pain and arthritis. Think about it. When people can return to reading, working, driving because their cognitive function improves, they get their blood sugars down to pre-diabetic levels and have more energy, get rid of neuropathy, and have restorative sleep again. This is what functional medicine is all about.
My success in treating these conditions happens because I choose the right patients. My process is proven to help because those who are admitted to my practice have communicated to me that their health is actually their number-one priority. However, all too often they have already met with so much frustration at not being listened to, not taken seriously when telling their doctors the symptoms from which they suffer, that they are ready for something else. Many have almost given up hope of recovering their health. Many don’t even realize these conditions don’t have to be lifelong. Some desperately need my help to realize their health should be top-priority above everything else, and when people reach this turning point in their life, they will do everything it takes to get well. My process offers new hope for a better life and a bright future. I look forward to serving you.
