TEGAN MOORE N.D.
- WHOLE HEALTH PHYSICIAN -
We all have our own idea of what healthy looks like. One thing we can all agree on is that when we are in a state of good health our experience of life is vastly improved. No matter what your starting point, Dr. Moore and the WHEELHOUSE team can help you reach your ideal state of health!
Naturopathic internal medicine is a specialty focused on the care of adults emphasizing use of the best medical science available in caring for patients in the context of thoughtful, meaningful doctor-patient relationships. Medical visits are offered for the prevention of disease and the treatment of acute complaints as well as the reversal of chronic conditions. One of the most compelling and powerful components of the naturopathic paradigm is the guiding principle of the whole. Each patient is viewed not as a jigsaw puzzle of parts acting independently, but a fluid being where each aspect, be it gene function or thought pattern, is woven into a complex system that defines the entirety of who they are. Just like most integrative health clinics, WHEELHOUSE offers holistic treatment strategies for patients of all ages. What makes the care at WHEELHOUSE so unique, however, is the generative vision that incorporates statistical analysis, systems assessment and genomic data to create personalized healing strategies as unique as the patient.
HOLISTIC NURSING SERVICES
At WHEELHOUSE we seamlessly integrate traditional approaches with holistic knowledge by providing nurse practitioner services for those requiring medications or customized IV infusions as part of their care plan. Our talented APRN offers a breadth of experience and a warm and compassionate approach so that you feel heard and supported throughout your healing journey.
Customized IV Infusions
Infusions are offered at WHEELHOUSE in a comfortable and private setting for the treatment of fatigue, support during illness recovery, as part of our supportive oncology care and are also available for anyone needing a little pick-me-up. Infusions are customized to meet the specific health and nutrient requirements of the patient. Examples include:
Antioxidants & detox support
Full spectrum nutrients (broad spectrum ‘cocktail’ of vitamins and minerals)
Iron infusions for chronic anemia
Customized injections (for those with chronic Lyme, fatigue or specific nutrient deficiencies)
Medications can be a supportive and necessary part of many patients’ health and healing journeys. For those who require medications along with their holistic treatment plans we offer a team approach that includes our APRN. Examples include:
Endocrine support (thyroid)
Alternative pain management approaches
SUPPORTIVE ONCOLOGY CARE
A diagnosis of cancer can be both scary and overwhelming. Many patients find that they are doing their own research while having to self-advocate – a process that can leave them feeling at a loss for what direction is best for them. At WHEELHOUSE, we provide supportive services for those seeking adjunct care to mainstream oncology approaches. This includes genetic assessments of both inherited risks as well as advanced tumor genomics, infusion therapy to offset the side effects of treatment, personalized nutrition and supplement protocols, counseling and medication management with our skilled nursing staff and much more.
It's common knowledge that all human DNA is almost identical. If this is the case, what is it that makes us all appear to be so unique? The answer is epigenetics.
Epigenetics is the study of environmental triggers that serve to switch genes on and off leading to unique variations in anything from taste preferences to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer or diabetes.Diet is one of the more easily studied, and therefore better understood, environmental factors dictating epigenetic change. In fact it’s been shown that dietary influence is strong enough to rapidly alter gene expression, especially early in development. This makes food a powerful tool for healing and establishing your best chance at long-lasting health, or what we call at WHEELHOUSE your disease-free life trajectory.
Most of us have tried at least one fad diet in our lifetime with little or no benefit. As an example, perhaps a friend or family member got great results eating low carb, but when you tried it you gained a few pounds instead. With all the hype and information out there about the best way to eat, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. The fact of the matter is that we are all individuals when it comes to our dietary needs.While some of us thrive on a low carb, animal protein-based diet, others will only be able to improve their health when they eat a diet based on grains and vegetable proteins.
So how do you figure out what food choices are right for you?At WHEELHOUSE, we gather a host of information associated with epigenetic factors such as your exposure to hormones in the womb, along with your blood type and secretor status - all characteristics that when combined make you a unique individual with unique dietary requirements. These factors are then used to create a diet plan, using proprietary software that facilitates decreased inflammation and promotes your personalized, disease-free longevity. Let the confusion end and your health and waistline improve with a personalized diet plan at WHEELHOUSE.
Nothing is more alarming than when our kids are sick or struggling with chronic health concerns. We want nothing more than to keep our little ones from harm and discomfort and sometimes it’s difficult to know where to turn for answers. At WHEELHOUSE we offer a unique form of comprehensive pediatric care that spans anything from chronic ear infections to autism spectrum syndrome. Diagnostics and care plans are designed to fit the unique requirements of children including ensuring adequate and robust nutrition and specialized genomic assessment of their GI flora and genome to improve digestion and assimilation and reduce hyperactivity and anxiety in the classroom. Our practitioners also offer lifestyle management support sessions for parents to help with the nitty gritty details of daily living (meal planning, grocery shopping and even how to get a picky eater to be open to a wider variety of foods) so that our treatment strategies are as low impact and effortless as possible to reduce family stress and improve outcomes.
At WHEELHOUSE we believe that women's health care should range far beyond GYN services. It’s important that women receive care that is individualized to who they are on every level. This means taking into account not only the basic health criteria a typical doctor might consider such as family history, but also lifestyle, stress levels, genetic background, gut health and microbiome and yes, even blood type! At WHEELHOUSE we offer women-centered care for those simply seeking GYN services in an exclusive, holistic setting as well as women suffering from the symptoms of hormonal dysregulation, concerned with hormonally sensitive diseases such as SLE, undergoing menopausal changes or seeking support during periods of infertility.

LIFESTYLE AND WELLNESS
‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’ Although old-timey sounding, this adage is more true today than at any point in human history. With the prevalence of comfort and convenience foods to choose from and the increasing cost of healthcare, making an investment in your health while you are feeling well may prevent high priced care in the future - plus who doesn’t want to feel like a million bucks! At WHEELHOUSE we offer a variety of support services to manage your diet and lifestyle to optimize your health.
