Many doctors over-prescribe pills and prescriptions drugs. Rather than discovering the root cause of your problem, they give you pills to ease your symptoms. This leads to long-term health issues and, sometimes, prescribing more drugs to counter the side-effects of the original drugs that were prescribed.
This is no way to treat your body.
We believe in an integrative, holistic approach that evaluates and supports your mental, emotional, and physical bodies’ natural healing powers, plus the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle, to address your ailments and become your healthiest self. Without the side effects.

Studies come out every year detailing the damage prescription drugs do to our bodies. NSAIDs destroy joints and cause gastrointestinal problems, Tylenol harms the liver, even drugs as seemingly harmless as allergy pills have unwanted side effects, such as restless leg syndrome or an inability to sleep.
At the Center for Vital Health, we believe you can be healthy without the “drug closet” approach.
To be clear, sometimes prescription drugs are necessary, and we’re not anti-medicine. We approach the body as a whole and seek to understand what is causing your discomfort or dis-ease and work with the body, in an integrative, functional way, to address the real issues; not just the symptoms.
The major imbalances which can be treated with a scientific based, holistically centered, individualized program include:
- autoimmune diseases - inflammation - mood and stress dysfunction
- cardiovascular health - digestive disorders - blood sugar imbalances
When you come to the Center for Vital Health, you’ll: 1. Share your medical history and goals so Dr. Mary Harrow can best understand both the past and the future of your health and how to help you move in the right direction; 2. A physical exam to fully comprehend your current health; and 3. A plan of care, created by you and Dr. Harrow, that is doable and will help you achieve the results you desire.
Call (719) 531-6778 now to set up your appointment, so you address your pain, discomfort, or dis-ease and become the healthiest, happiest you.
OMT is a hands-on treatment performed by Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine to diagnose injuries and prevent illnesses.
Osteopaths give special attention to how the body's nerves, muscles, fascia, bones, and organs work together to influence health, then encourage its own inherent ability to heal itself. Dr. Harrow uses the following gentle techniques to treat patients:
Deep Tissue Massage
Myofascial Release (MFR)
Diet & Supplements (including LDN)
What goes into your body is a major contributor to how your body functions. If you’re eating something your body doesn’t like, it can produce negative symptoms, such as gastrointestinal problems, autoimmune disease, allergies, and more.
After discussing your discomfort, medical history, and goals, Dr. Harrow helps you create a plan that includes diet, and supplements if indicated, to make sure your body gets the nutrients it needs, and avoids the foods it doesn’t respond well to.
Along with a focus on diet, Dr. Harrow considers the benefits of supplements and medications such as CBD or low dose naltrexone (LDN). We prioritize supplements and medications that are affordable and have minimal side effects reported by patients.
