SALT Health is new in NWA, with a totally disruptive health concept. They combine concierge-level care with member-only direct access to a complete wellness team including physicians, dietitians, personal trainers, care coordination, spa and fitness.  Their new 13,000 sq ft spa-like health center opened in June 2020 with Founding Member rates available for Chamber Members until July 30. Following is a patient testimony:

“After discovering that our young daughter had blood test results showing signs of developing an auto-immune disease, we started to take action. The first step was to go the traditional or standard route of visiting immunologists and other mainstream doctors. Although these doctors were helpful in some ways, the general response was that there wasn’t really anything that could be done until further down the road or until clear symptoms started to show up. Their approach was to focus on the symptoms rather than the cause, and so the idea was to basically just wait until the likely symptoms arrived and then to aggressively respond in a manner that would likely compromise the overall immune system. 

As we were not satisfied with these responses, we began to do some independent research regarding what might be the cause of our daughter’s problematic blood test results with the hope of reducing or eliminating the likelihood of her developing the disease.

We finally discovered functional medicine and were blessed to work with Dr. Aunna Herbst, a family medicine doctor with a specialty in functional medicine. It was with functional medicine, and Dr. Herbst in particular who is not only highly considerate but also incredibly knowledgeable, when things seriously began to improve for our daughter.  Through Dr. Herbst’s medical expertise and functional medicine focus of addressing the root causes related to our daughter’s situation, step-by-step approaches that targeted particular areas of our daughter’s health were focused on. Little by little, for the first time, we finally started to see our daughter’s blood test results improve and were absolutely thrilled. As our daughter’s results continue to improve on a regular basis, we are so grateful and owe so much to Dr. Herbst and her functional medicine approach. Thank you so much!”  — Charles T.
