The Lander Hope Clinic was founded on the experiences of Janeen Beard.
A few years ago, Beard was feeling lifeless and tired. Movement hurt. She was looking to improve her life.
“She heard about a functional medicine doctor in Ohio and, with nothing to lose, made an appointment that would end up changing her life and the lives of many others.” said her husband, John Beard. “At that meeting, she was told that almost every condition she had was related to nutrition and that she could reverse each one by changing her daily life choices.”
It was worth a shot.
“Doubtful but hopeful, Janeen followed the daily changes.” said John Beard. “In less than 30 days, 29 of Janeen’s 30 complaints had been completely overturned.”
The experience had a cascading effect on her life.
She wanted to know more about functional medicine. She wanted to know what had caused her problems. And she wanted to know how the changes had been so complete and so rapid.
“That personal journey would lead Janee to work and partner with Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Nobel nominee and author of The China Study, as well as a number of other prominent leaders in the fields of food science, medicine and medical research. “
It also led her to medical school, where she earned a nursing degree.
In June, the Beards opened the Lander Hope Clinic at the intersection of Route 957 and Miller Hill Road.
It provides care and antenatal care for all ages – from newborns to the elderly.
The space of 3000 square meters has “Full x-ray capabilities, ultrasound machines, breathing monitors and a host of other tools to help find what’s causing a particular problem.”
It operates on the basis of functional medicine, Beard said. “which means that clinicians will look to find the root cause of the problem and reverse the condition. In addition to traditional medicines, prescription medications, and simple surgical procedures (stitching, splinting, etc.), doctors may recommend herbal remedies, nutritional changes, genetic testing, and other nontraditional methods to treat existing health challenges.
The staff includes family nurse practitioners, nurse practitioners, ultrasound technicians, x-ray technicians and a full-time nutritionist/herbalist, he said.
The clinic does not accept insurance. Treatment costs are displayed in the waiting room.
Clinic hours are 9 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Appointments can be made by calling (814) 593-0011. Emergencies will not be avoided.
