In my surgical career, I became aware of the importance of nutrition in healing surgical wounds, which carried over into the science of building healthy athletes/children and adults. In the late 90's, I developed a personal interest in Exercise Science in building and maintaining healthy bodies and preventing disease and maintaining optimal personal wellness. Through Heuser Health and Fitness, we continue to perform experiments to promote the science of nutrition and exercise. Now Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement at Heuser Health is the new science of optimal aging and personal health, both mentally and physically. The Heuser brand has come full circle into "Heuser Complete Care", still utilizing primary prevention with nutrition and exercise while managing Adult Primary Care on a cash basis for chronic and sick/acute care.
Over thirty years of my nursing career were spent within the traditional surgical area of nursing, and the last 16 in Prevention. I am taking the primary tools of Preventive Medicine as a nurse using effective exercise and nutrition, to my practice as a Nurse Practitioner with Heuser Complete Care. I plan to include complimentary forms of medicine such as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement and Physical Therapy; which help to promote optimized health. With exercise and eating to fuel, build, and repair the body…chronic disease can be treated and prevented.
During my 24 years in nursing I've worked in the ICU as an RN, and in the Emergency Department as both an RN and as a Family Nurse Practitioner & loved what I did, but longed for something more. I wanted to completely take care of the whole patient and not just treat them when they were ill. I wanted to incorporate wellness into the care I provided. I wanted to help people become and stay healthy.
When my husband and I moved to Southern Indiana I was longing to be able to practice in a dynamic setting where I could incorporate traditional medicine and more holistic aspects of clinic practice to keep people healthy and not just treat them as they became ill. Finding this type of practice was no small feat. I met Dr. Louis and Peggy Heuser, and everything clicked. We decided to embark on a brand new venture where we could take complete & optimal care of our patients. I am so excited to be able to offer patients a true wellness experience that incorporates health, wellness, nutrition, exercise and complimentary medical services all in one place. I am excited to offer Complete Primary Care to our patients, in order to make them the healthiest possible version of themselves.
