Tracy Teclaw, ND, CNHP ,LMT, QRA Specialist

Tracy Teclaw Over 20 years ago, Tracy watched as both of her parents went through agonizing illnesses and treatments. Her mother, misdiagnosed, underwent unnecessary surgery and died of complications due to chemotherapy. One year later her beloved father died from diabetes. The death of her father had a profound and life altering effect on Tracy. The college freshman, studying psychology, decided her passion lied with proper nutrition, complimentary/holistic and energy medicine. Nursing her parents through their diseases and helplessly watching them suffer, she knew there had to be a better way. As the owner of The Energy and Wellness Center, Tracy has made it her mission to bring her knowledge of optimal health to all that seek wellness. Through the teachings and philosophies of Dr. Bob Marshall, Dr. Donna Johnston , and Dr. Milovich, to name a few, Tracy is certified in energy medicine, muscle testing, Quantum Reflex Analysis, Bio-energetic feedback and Frequency Specific Micro-current. Her passion is to teach and encourage self-responsibility to others for optimal health.

Dr. Mariam Tovar, DOM, AP, MD Vzla

Dr. Mariam Tovar combines her knowledge and experience in Western Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Functional Medicine-Functional  Diagnostic Medicine (FDNC), Gut Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) and Breath work therapy, offering her patients a medical treatment designed for their specific needs and the opportunity to find their inner healer, while honoring the patient's emotions with a high level of ethics and professionalism. When Dr. Tovar was a young girl, her sister was born autistic and with a severe brain paralysis. This encouraged her to think of health conditions at a very early age and what to do in order for wellness to prevail. It helped her value life and human relationships, to listen and understand the silent signals of human necessities, and to understand a person's fear of the unknown. She received very precise lessons on how, by using physical manipulations, adjustments, and massages applied to her sister, to improve her physical condition. One of the early accomplishments was helping her sister learn to walk when she was 3 years old. Homeopathic treatments helped her to overcome multiple convulsive crises, giving Dr. Tovar the opportunity to witness the effectiveness of another kind of medicine. After several years, these experiences reaffirmed Dr. Tovar's decision to pursue medicine. In 1990, she worked as an assistant in an Integrative Medicine Institution, Anthanor, in Chacao Caracas where Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Chiropractic, Colonics, Neural Therapy, Chelation and Ozone Therapies were the common practice. One of her functions was to prepare homeopathic formulas, giving her the opportunity to learn all these modalities and being exposed to other Doctor/Patient relationship focuses. This experience, compounded with her knowledge of using homeopathic treatments, motivated her to pursue her Medical degree.Dr. Tovar earned her Medical Doctor degree in 2000 at Carabobo's University in Venezuela. She is certified in natural birth, and worked at the first hospital to offer this option in Venezuela. She is certified in Chiromassage and Professional Breathingwork therapies.  In 2003 she relocated to the United States to enhance her English language abilities and expand her medical knowledge. Dr. Tovar was interested in medical esthetics and in 2006 she achieved a Paramedical Skin Care Associate Degree from Florida College of Integrative Medicine and graduated in 2011 with a Degree of Doctor in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. This Millenarian medicine helped her to incorporate another way of thinking, a system based on questions, observation, and palpation with totally different protocols.  She is convinced that the human being is integrated and that any modification in one area affects the rest. This belief system fits perfectly into the psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology concept or "Functional Medicine". Her studies and experiences give her a commonality between practices, keeping her in love and passionate about this occupation's mission, which she has been entrusted with as her way to give back to her family, friends, and patients.
