Our Approach

At Kalish Wellness, we take a whole-body approach to health and healing. Through lab-based assessments, we work with each patient to restore internal balance through customized nutritional supplement programs, diet and lifestyle counseling and hormone balancing programs. Because each of us has a unique and individualized internal and biochemical makeup, we customize our treatment plans based on your unique health history and lab results. 

The Kalish Wellness philosophy involves balancing the three body systems: Your digestive system, which breaks down food for use by the body, your hormonal system, which produces your sex and stress hormones, and your detoxification system, which protects you from free radicals and chemical toxicity, both from your environment and from your diet. When symptoms arise, they are a signal of an imbalance in the system; Every health issue can be traced back to a problem within one or more of your three body systems.

Through targeted lab testing for each of these systems, Dan Kalish will assess how each system is working, and design an individualized program to rebalance your body.

With an individualized plan that includes a scientifically-based supplement program, diet, stress reduction and exercise, a person’s health can improve dramatically – not only physically, but emotionally. With an ongoing wellness plan, many health problems can also be avoided, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and female hormone imbalances.

How we work

The Kalish Wellness Center works with clients primarily over the phone; The health programs we design are based on the results of lab tests that can easily be done in your home. The types of tests that are used are stool, saliva, or urine and blood samples. The health programs designed by Dan Kalish are based on lab tests that assess the function of the three body systems: hormones, digestion and detoxification.

During your initial phone consultation, our Board Certified Health Coach will review your personal and family health history, and make recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues.

Once your lab work has been completed, Daniel Kalish will explain the meaning of your test results in a follow up consultation. He will also create an individualized health program for you which will include one or more of the following: diet changes, nutritional supplements, exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations. Subsequent consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program.
