Our Philosophy

In Sarasota, Florida and the surrounding areas, people who are looking for a nature first, drugs last philosophy, come to Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan. We believe your body is a miracle and can move towards greater states of health. We believe that people who follow nature’s wisdom feel better and build long term health.

Nature’s wisdom can be understood through the philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine which considers the whole body and the body systems interacting within the whole. The body is physical as nature is physical. The whole greater than the sum of its parts. The wisdom of nature at the core of Traditional Chinese Medicine is this: Bring harmony to the yin and yang, the natural forces in the body, by guiding the body to follow established cycles of health.

Our Clinic & Services

Nature’s Wisdom Healing Center-Mary Cetan is an alternative medical clinic that offers healing modalities including the ancient practice of acupuncture in Sarasota, Florida. Our specialty is helping people feel better by addressing the specific pain and symptoms at the same time as we work on uncovering the cause of the health problems. Herbal medicine and functional nutrition are integral to our acupuncture practice; the acupuncture is a treatment patients receive at the clinic while herbal medicine and nutritional supplements are administered at home. Often the pain and symptoms have an emotional tie, here we source homeopathic medicine to help the restoration of normal emotional balance. We utilize professional product lines including  whole food nutrient rich supplements from Standard Process and quality herbal solutions from MediHerb.

We utilize a variety of lab tests including: blood chemistry, hair mineral, DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Complete Hormones), Microbiome Labs Stool, BrainSpan blood spot & cognitive analysis to help determine functional causes of health issues and point us to specific nutrients and herbal medicine to help restore balance to the out of range areas. The tests also help us to measure the progress that our patients make over time.  All of these lab tests with the exception of the blood lab can be done at home with the test kit we provide. We order blood work through LabCorp for blood chemistry.
