Dr. Lalezar has created a sanctuary for patients who are suffering from complex health issues. She is committed, persistent and focused to get to the root cause of your illness. She believes in thorough specialty diagnostic tests to uncover the underlying causes of your disease. Her holistic approach makes you a partner in discovering all the factors in your history and lifestyle that impact your overall health: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
After uncovering the root cause of your condition, Dr. Lalezar will tailor a highly effective treatment plan and provide the support you need to experience break-through results. She believes in detoxifying the body first and foremost, and then providing targeted nutritional therapies orally and intravenously to help patients achieve a rapid return to health and vitality. IV Chelation and IV nutritional therapy are key components in your treatments. They remove toxins and deliver needed vitamins and minerals — directly into your bloodstream, and create a maximum effect and benefit.
