Revolution Health and Wellness is a clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was first started by Dr. Chad P. Edwards, DO. Dr. Edwards practices holistic, functional, alternative medicine in Tulsa. He believes that nutrition is one of the most important factors when it comes to our health, and inadequate nutrition is one of the most common reasons for poor health and disease. Unfortunately, most of Americans are not healthy due to our culture. Call Dr. Edwards today at 918-935-3636 and he will help get you on the path to better health.
Doctor Edwards is a Christian and accepts God’s Son, Jesus Christ, as his personal Lord and Savior. He always prays for all of his patients and believes that Jesus died for everyone of every religion. Dr. Edwards never wants to make you feel uncomfortable by his faith, but he does pray that all of his patients will also come to know Jesus if they have yet to know Him. Dr. Edwards firmly believes that God called him into this profession in order to help others find relief from chronic pain and debilitating disease through the use of alternative medicine in Tulsa, and to live happier lives. He does his best to help his patients achieve optimal health.
There is a laundry list of diseases that can be attributed to poor nutrition, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Chron’s disease, hyperlipidemia, digestive problems, stomach pains, osteoporosis, obesity, Thyroid problems, fatigue, depression, insomnia, anxiety, and many more. Proper nutrition is about so much more than portion control or eating the right amount of food; it’s about eating the right KINDS of foods. When we are eating the right kinds of food, then the quantity becomes much less important. Eating to optimize your health means you need to start thinking about your food as fuel for your body. This is the opposite of the typical “American way” of using food for social gatherings, holidays, comfort, rewards, etc.
We have learned even more over the years of how gluten increases overall inflammation in the body, and is also the cause of most of the autoimmune conditions, such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Thyroid disorders, and many more. Many of our patients are shocked to learn that many of these conditions can be treated and cured with nutrition alone. For conditions that can’t be completely treated with nutrition, we can, at the least, accomplish a lowering in the dose of medications that are being used to currently treat the condition. Lower doses will help to decrease the unwanted side effects of medications. No matter what, improving your nutrition is always a win win situation.
To achieve the best nutrition, we help our patients to establish their goals and then continually work towards achieving them. You will also need to eat natural foods whenever possible, and ideally try to get as much of this food locally as possible, for example, at local farmer’s markets. It’s also important to eat as much variety as possible, which will guarantee an adequate intake of nutrients. We also recommend eliminating gluten altogether, and trying to completely eliminate grains as much as possible. Following these guidelines will get you started on the path to achieving optimal health through proper nutrition and with the help of alternative medicine in Tulsa.

At Revolution Health and Wellness, Dr. Edwards focuses on alternative medicine in Tulsa, as well as on health and wellness as a preventative strategy to optimize your health, minimize injury risk, and decrease disease. We believe in being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to your health. Dr. Edwards takes a holistic approach when he treats his patients.

If there was one thing that Revolution Health and Wellness could do to improve the health of Americans, it would be to educate them on proper lifestyle.
A proper lifestyle includes proper nutrition, exercise, body composition, smoking cessation, stress reduction, and nutrition supplementation (on an as needed basis). When we address every one of these components to a healthy lifestyle, we guarantee the best health possible for each of our patients and the prevention of a long list of severe medical problems. At Revolution Health and Wellness, we use a pain reduction system called prolotherapy. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself. Keep reading to find out more.
Many musculoskeletal pains, are due to ligament and/or tendon relaxation. This happens when there is damage to these areas which then results in instability. When we use prolotherapy, Dr. Edwards injects a “proliferant” solution into these damaged areas, which in turn stimulates an inflammatory response. This response is the first step in healing damaged areas. Prolotherapy initiates a powerful inflammatory response throughout the body by stimulating the healing cascade. In other words, prolotherapy is a form of alternative medicine in Tulsa that stimulates the body to heal itself.
The body heals itself through a complicated inflammatory process that consists of three phases. The first is inflammatory, which occurs within the first 36 hours after an injury. The second phase is proliferative, which occurs over approximately 36 hours to 6 weeks. And the third phase is called remodeling, which takes 6 weeks to 18 months on average. Most patients will need to have 3 to 6 procedures scheduled about 3 to 4 weeks apart. Call Revolution Health and Wellness today, and Dr. Edwards will get started on helping you to relieve your pain and regain your life.
