94 in-depth FACES locate and relieve the root cause of poor health. As Dr. Eyink says, "It's getting information from the person's own body." "The typical primary care message is: We'll help you manage this," Dr. Eyink says. "Our practice is focused on prevention." First, staff practitioners use kinesiol- ogy—the science of human movement—to help identify issues. "Then, we try to help resolve those through herbs, nutrition supplements, and homeopathic rem- edies. It's supporting health." Board certified in both internal medicine and medi- cal acupuncture, Dr. Eyink's training in Western medi- cine and nontraditional healthcare practices, such as acupuncture, give him a unique view across the chasm that sometimes exists between the two schools of thought. In fact, he still prescribes traditional medica- tions, but only when necessary. Cynthia Rozzi of Newbury began seeing Dr. Eyink and Sara Thielsen, the staff nutrition counselor and patient advocate, several years ago. "I was perimeno- pausal," Rozzi recalls, with rashes, thinning hair, and bloating. Rozzi, 63, also had a bad case of Raynaud's disease, which is characterized by spasms of the arter- ies in the extremities, especially the fingers. Rozzi had tried traditional medicine, with little success. "I've seen regular doctors, of course, but I always wondered; things didn't seem quite right," she says. "I didn't want to take hormones or any other type of prescriptions that I consider very invasive, strong medicines. The Raynaud's disease was especially trou- blesome. "Other doctors told me there was nothing to be done," Rozzi says. "I wanted to know the reasons for the symptoms and what I could do to heal it totally." She saw Dr. Eyink and Thielsen as her last attempt to attain health. Dr. Eyink and Thielsen prescribed a combination of herbs, nutritional supplements, and a new eating style that focused on natural, well-balanced menus. Today, the rashes and night sweats are gone, and the Raynaud's disease is well under control. "My hair is growing back. I feel great, my energy is great, everybody tells me how great I look," she says. Rozzi thinks the an- swer to healthcare today is a combination of naturopa- thy and Western medicine. "Working together, we would have an unbeatable medical system," she says. More than 100 patients a week visit the center's bright, spacious quarters, with complaints ranging from painful menstrual cycles to back pain, achy joints, and what Dr. Eyink calls "gut symptoms," a very common condition that sometimes has unexpected origins.
