Treatment in our office is covered by most insurance, and we do the billing for you. If you do not have insurance, we have affordable cash plans and financing available with Care Credit.

If it is not practical for you to come to see us personally, or if you just want to talk about nutrition, you can set up a nutritional consultation.

Does collagen really help my bones?

Collagen, like all proteins, is made up of amino acids. When you eat anything with protein, your stomach and pancreas break down the proteins into amino acids. Amino acids are then absorbed or sent to the parts of the body that need them. As we age, we do not digest proteins as well, and we have trouble creating new proteins in the body. Taking Dr. Joe’s Enzyme Support ( every time you have a cooked meal may help break down those proteins. If you have acid reflux, you will need to get that resolved as it affects how you digest proteins; check out this article ( about a common cause of digestive issues.

You probably do not need a collagen supplement; you need to be sure your digestive system is working properly.
