WHAT’S NEW AT THE CENTER- October 2014
The new and improved Preventive Medicine Center website is now live. The website has undergone extensive updating to make it easier to navigate and add content.
Low Dose Flu Shots Now Available. Intradermal (into the skin) flu vaccination uses 80% less flu vaccine. We have been using this method for over a decade at the Center with our patients having equal or better immunity than the intramuscular flu vaccine and virtually no side effects. This 2014-2015 flu vaccine has four different flu strains, including the H1N1 strain that was common last year. Cost $20.
Dr. Erickson, Renee Wilkison M.A., and Frances Erickson R.N. attended an international thermography conference earlier this month. Participants came from as far away as Australia and China. One of the speakers was Thomas Hudson, M.D., a radiologist from Naples, Florida, who gave an excellent presentation on thermography screening and breast health.
Product Highlights – The USDA recommends 7 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Nanogreens10® is a high quality, nutrient rich “super-food” made with primarily organic fruits and vegetables and has the anti-oxidant power of 10 servings of vegetables and fruits. This product promotes healthy immunity and blood sugar levels as well as boosting energy, according to the manufacturer. This product does contain soy in the form of lecithin. Nanoreds10® is a fruit and vegetable superfood, that has more fruit than Nanogreens10®. Some of its contents include Resveratrol, Elderberry (8% Anthocyanin), Grape seed and whole grape extract, Pomegranate, Crannbery, Black Currant and Blueberry. No lecithin in this product. Both products are manufactured with an enhanced delivery system to improve absorption and are GMO-free.
Thanksgiving Holiday – We will be closed November 27th and 28th in observance of Thanksgiving. The Christmas/New Year/Chanukah holiday closure dates will be posted later on www.prevent-doc.com.

A WORD TO PERSPECTIVE PATIENTS
We know that selecting a new doctor is a big decision, and we thank you for inquiring about The Preventive Medicine Center of Gainesville, Inc. The Center was established in March 2000 by Dr. Robert A. Erickson in response to more and more Americans seeking complimentary and alternative therapies to traditional drug therapy alone, while at the same time wanting a trained medical doctor participating in their health care needs.
At the Center we take a nutritional approach to health and healing, rather than prescribing drugs whenever possible. This approach is integrated with the medications a patient is currently taking from other physicians. It has been our experience in some cases medications can eventually be reduced or even eliminated entirely if a patient so desires. The intent of this approach is to elevate one’s health through nutrition and life-style changes, rather than just treatment of symptoms with a drug.
We realize this type of approach is not for everyone and does not apply to every health condition. We encourage you to explore this website to get a better idea of our approach to health and wellness.
