Do you desire to feel better but afraid of what that journey might look like or entail? The truth is that the road to true optimal health and well-being, what we would call your MaxWell, is multifactorial and encompasses many areas of life. Even people that seek us out realize that they are hoping the answer is an easy diagnosis followed by a quick fix and a pill to swallow.Details
MaxWell is the fullest possible expression of brain, body and being potential that best maximizes the pursuit of your dreams and the fulfillment of your life’s purpose. The mission of MaxWell Clinic is to create maximum wellness in one unique patient at a time. Because each person that comes to the clinic is environmentally and genetically distinct, we need a place in which to learn about how best to work with that uniqueness. This is not taught in medical schools. It’s that next level of healthcare:
Patients come to MaxWell Clinic from all over the United States and World for treatment of a wide range of dysfunction. Ultimately, we focus on the person rather than the disease. That can be confusing in a world where we’ve been brainwashed by the marketing of disease names. For example, if you have osteoarthritis, you may be told that you need a particular anti-inflammatory (trademarked product). However, osteoarthritis is not caused by a drug deficiency – yes that is obvious, but if that is so, it is also obvious that using that drug will not fundamentally FIX the cause that started the problem in the first place. Instead, we should ask: What is osteoarthritis? Osteo =bone, arthr = joint, itis=inflammation Then ask: WHY do you have inflammation? This question begins the process of functional medicine, which is not the medicine of what but the medicine of why. Thus, we do not have a defined list of diseases that we treat, rather, we treat the people who are experiencing symptoms, which may or may not fall under a specific definition of disease. As we treat the person, we are successful in treating a vast majority of symptoms because we are looking at fundamental underlying processes that tie together most dysfunction. Our philosophy is that diseases do not really exist. Diagnoses means to know through and through. When you name a disease you often abandon the pursuit of knowing the person. You put them on an accepted protocol and may not pay attention to all of the confounding factors caused by that person’s uniqueness.
I’m a 63 year old, Wife, Mother and Grandmother, with only One Wish, when I went to Maxwell Clinic, I asked to feel 20 years old again, not to look or act 20 but to feel 20 again.
After only four weeks, I feel that I’m well on my way. As a Business Woman and Avid Gardner with many hobbies, including bicycling and horseback riding. I feel Dr. Haase has me well on my way to being healthy and active again with only a minimum amount of time each week. I feel better than I have in years. Thank you Dr. Haase.
Dr. Haase, I don’t know how to say thanks. You have no idea what it’s like to get my memory back and feel normal again. I wake up everyday and thank the Lord for you. Most doctors wouldn’t have found the root cause – but you are so thorough and so gifted! I am so grateful to you and so fortunate to have you as my partner in healthcare! (now if you could just do something to improve my handwriting! 🙂 )
Two years ago I had a hysterectomy. My GYN told me afterwards he would give me hormone supplements and they would make me feel better, more mellow and would help my stress levels. I was not able to take the hormones they made me feel weird and severely depressed. I really did not want to live anymore, I felt like half a woman. He told me I had issues and I needed to see a Psychiatrist. My regular MD referred me to a compounding pharmacist and he did his best to help to no avail, and he referred me to Dr Haase. With Dr. Haase’s wisdom and compassion he has helped me tremendously. He was a great listener when everyone else refused to hear. He did not make me think I was crazy. He gave me reassurance and hope that everything would be okay. I am a different person today because of Dr. Haase, he will never know how much his kind words and his great knowledge has meant to me.
In April I walked into Dr. Haase’s office so ill that I thought I would not be able to continue my job. The chronic and severe abdominal pain I had been experiencing for at least two yrs had taken its toll. Dr. Haase listened intently as I described my physical challenges and then began asking questions never before asked of me, honing in on such things as my lifestyle. I knew immediately that his approach was unique and deliberate.
Another of his unique characteristics is his desire that you understand why your body is acting the way it is and why he is prescribing what he’s prescribing, whether it’s labs, change in diet – whatever. I must say I have never witnessed a doctor take such joy in helping others get well and remain well. Within 6 months of my first visit I literally felt as if I had been given my life back. I received an understanding of what was going on with my body and that there was always hope for changing the situation. One striking moment for me during the process of my (drug free!) treatment/healing was when I was enthusiastically telling Dr. Haase that I was so happy and doing so well with “very little pain” to which he replied, “Little pain? You shouldn’t have ANY pain!” We learn to live with pain and take on the mindset that it’s “just the way it is for me”. Dr. Haase has taught me that we should not and need not live with pain – “not even a little”. I am so grateful to have the doctor so many are looking for; one that doesn’t give up until he sees results. If you have the desire to be well, Dr, Haase will walk you down that road to wellness.
Today, Sachi had her first appointment with her primary care family practitioner since April 2008. That was when her A1c was at 8.2H, now 6.5 . Her cholesterol was sky high with high blood pressure. Sachi was fed up being a illness victim and volunteered herself to doing something to take control of her health and well being. Hello Maxwell Clinic. Today her Primary care Physician could only stare at her lab results and charts while talking into his recorder and saying, “Amazing. I don’t know what you did, but keep on doing it. Don’t change a thing. He had excitement in his voice and eyes. The Doctor was clearly proud of his patient. “What are the supplements? What are you taking for Diabetes? For Lipids, Your BP in Dr office setting is 102 / 81 with no murmur. Amazing! Just look at those triglycerides and HDLs, all in range. Don’t change whatever you are doing. GOD bless and thank you DR Haase and team.
Dr. Haase is a fantastic health care provider. Never have I been to the doctor where they actually want to know YOU! He sets aside a 2 hour window for your first visit, and before you even come through the door for your appointment, he has you fill out a comprehensive health packet. To come, that may seem over the top, but he’s not your average physician. He cares about your WHOLE health, not just “putting a bandaid on a symptom”. He is in network for most insurances, but he practices Functional medicine (part holistic, part conventional), so some insurances don’t cover every test or lab he wants to do for you. If you are sick of the “cattle drive” of conventional medicine and are willing to spend a little money on your health, book an appointment with him ASAP.
