Many doctors over-prescribe pills and prescriptions drugs. They give you pills to ease your symptoms rather than discovering the root cause of your problem. 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
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.
