‘Tis the season of giving and spreading joy, although we think we should be in the giving joyous spirit year-round we do especially enjoy the Christmas season. Stillpoint Medicine is all about being local to Sacramento region, when we can, we give back to others in our community. We are a local medical business with Dr. Tamara Taber an osteopathic family physician. Stillpoint Medicine is a functional holistic wellness center with an uplifting atmosphere that you have to experience to understand.
Stillpoint Medicine became a elf helper to the local Santa Clause aka Toys for Troops Kids. Toys for the Troops’ Kids is a non-profit charitable organization. They collect Christmas toys to the children of Sacramento military members by public donations of toys and monetary contributions and may undertake projects in addition to its annual Toy Drive for the benefit of America’s military and their families. You can donate to Toys for Troops Kids every Christmas, this is their 15th annual fundraiser. Toys for Troops Kids has two local donation sites: 1) Citrus Town Center that is located north east corner of Greenback Ln and Sunrise Blvd between Panera Bread and Sprouts. Across from the Sunrise Mall. 2) Arden Fair Mall that is located on the south-east corner of the mall next to Toys “R” Us!
By spending less than $10 we were able to contribute to help make kids of the local community smile on their Christmas morning.
It doesn’t take much, you don’t have to spend money you can also donate your time. Do what you can and what you feel is best. We pray that everyone stays positive and grateful into the New Year and wish all your dreams become a reality, we are blessed and thankful.
While you’re out and about buying last minute Christmas gifts and getting the holidays prepared stop in our office and say hi. You can enter to win a $1,000 cash before Christmas, the only catch is you have to stop in the office to enter, no purchase necessary. Just being a part of the local community gets you the entry. Merry Christmas!
Stillpoint Medicine recently opened in Citrus Heights CA. The practice promotes a healthy lifestyle for its clients using some unorthodox methods, including putting nutrition first by having a kitchen as the focal point of clinic. Owner and lead physician Dr. Tamara Taber believes food is the best medicine. As such, she has made the teaching of proper nutrition a central theme to healing her patients. "Many of my clients have reduced or completely eliminated medications through dietary improvements. I know it is imperative for people to eat well to stay healthy," she says.
Dr. Taber is building the practice as a wellness center that includes addressing a client's history and lifestyle to uncover the best strategies for care. Patients complete a detailed questionnaire before receiving treatment. While she asks for more data than most doctors, this information is used to assess the client holistically to look at problems at their root cause rather than just treat symptoms. For example, she says, "many people can adjust their diet to reduce cholesterol rather than take statins (drugs) but they may be unaware of exactly how to do this. I am the type of doctor who will take the time to show you how to do this correctly."
The practice provides a number of services you don't see at a typical doctors office including, a float tank for stress management, laser treatment for incontinence and osteopathic adjustments to treat chronic pain and migraine headaches.
The clinic's integrative approach to health offers unique payment options as well, including a monthly membership or pay-as-you-go program. Consumers can learn more by calling (916) 721-4760. Dr. Taber offers complementary tours of the practice and 20-minute phone consultations upon request.
