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. The body is physical as nature is physical. The whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Nature’s wisdom can be understood through the philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine which views the entire body and the body systems interacting within the whole. The whole maintains balance by constantly balancing the yin and yang, the balance of the opposites. We can view the body as a natural landscape and like a landscape, we want everything working in harmony–not too wet, not too dry, not too hot, not too cold, not too soft, not too hard, etc.

When the body is unable to achieve or maintain normal balance due to injury or other life circumstances, illness sets in.  When the body receives the support it needs to restore and maintain balance, more normal function and health can return. The longer the body is subject to items that disrupt balance, the deeper into chronic health patterns it can go. As balance is restored and maintained, life energy can flow through the whole body and good health prevails.

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.

Chinese Herbal Medicine and Functional Nutrition are integral to our acupuncture practice. We utilize professional product lines including  whole food nutrient rich supplements from Standard Process and quality herbal solutions from MediHerb. Often the pain and symptoms have an emotional tie and we find Homeopathic Medicine provides a gentle way to support restoration of normal emotional balance.

We utilize a variety of lab tests including: blood chemistry, hair mineral, DUTCH (Dried Urine Test for Complete Hormones), Microbiome Labs StoolBrainSpan 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.
