Health & Wellness Q & A

Why are my health and wellness important?

Your health and wellness contribute to how you feel on a daily basis, and also affect your long-term well-being. They encompass not only your physical state, but also your emotions and mental wellness.

How can a doctor help me improve my health and wellness?

At Portland Wellness Center, Dr. Bain and her staff provide a comprehensive array of customizable services, screenings, and counseling to help you optimize your health and wellness.

Dr. Bain offers detailed physical exams, including full blood panels. These assessments help her to develop an understanding of your health and identify any warning signs of disease or illness, nutritional deficiencies, or other health problems. She also spends time talking with you about your life to gauge your emotional and mental health.

Once she understands your health, she creates a customized treatment plan to enhance your health and wellness.

What should I expect from a health and wellness plan?

Dr. Bain and the team work with you to create a plan to address any areas of your health or wellness that negatively impact your well-being. Each plan is as unique as each patient. However, there are many components that are beneficial to everyone.

Nutritional counseling

The standard American diet is reliant on processed convenience foods that are high in sugar, fat, and salt. Dr. Bain and her team can help you create a diet plan that includes healthy, whole foods that fit into your lifestyle and is delicious.

IV therapy

If Dr. Bain discovers that you have any vitamin deficiencies, she may recommend IV therapy. This is a customizable treatment in which you receive an infusion of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients through an IV drip.

Your infusion is mixed to specifically address your needs. You spend approximately an hour receiving your infusion, and should feel energized and refreshed. Dr. Bain provides advice on how frequently you may benefit from IV therapy.


Counseling is an effective way to manage your mental and emotional health. Whether you have a specific issue you want to resolve or are living with a general feeling of malaise, counseling can help you uncover and explore your thoughts and emotions in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
