About Integrated Wellness of Florida
Dr. Michael Cohen, “The Results Chiropractor” is a member of the Florida Chiropractic Association and Broward County Chiropractic Society. He has expertise in spinal therapy, relief for neck pain, headaches, whiplash, sciatic pain, back and lower back pain. After learning the science and the success of stem cell therapy, Dr. Cohen decided it was a perfect fit for his patients. By bringing on a licensed Physician, Dr. David Blyweiss, and Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), Marisa Kooima, he has expanded his practice to include stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy fits with Dr. Cohen’s values because it relies on the all-natural healing of the human body.
Chiropractic Healthcare and Wellness Center engulfs a science-based nutrition. Therefore, they provide emphasis on allowing the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. Dr. Cohen and his practice believe in proactive health care. They want to find the illness at the source and work from there. This is partially why Dr. Cohen expanded his practice to include stem cell therapy. Science-based nutrition incorporates the use of vitamins, botanicals, herbs, healthy diet, and lifestyle to reduce stress on the system and encourage optimal function and health.
Stem cell therapy has the ability to help numerous injuries. Stem cells divide and conquer to restore damaged tissue, ligaments, nerves, and cartilage. These unspecialized cells work hard to heal your body. Integrated Wellness of Florida is at the forefront of stem cell therapy in South Florida, providing an opportunity for patients in the area to experience relief without surgery and medications.
Dr. David J. Blyweiss, MD
David J. Blyweiss, MD began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1982. This dual background allowed him to appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, but also to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the vast majority of patients who suffered from the chronic degenerative diseases of “western civilization origin”.
Over the last twenty years, with the nutritional medical knowledge base expanding in the fields of nutrigenomics, proteomics and other related “orthomolecular” disciplines directed towards patients’ biochemical individuality, Dr. Blyweiss became an early adherent, experienced practitioner and now teacher of what would become known as “functional medicine”. Dr. Blyweiss has used this matrix of systems biology to effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms related to the most “difficult-to-treat” conditions by addressing the underlying causes, helping to guide the body to heal itself.
In association with Humana Medical Plans, as an affiliated provider, Dr. Blyweiss also served as member of, and subsequent chairman of, the Quality Assurance Committee and Physician Credentialing Committee from 1985 – 1990. He is adjunct faculty at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine helping to train both future and practicing physicians in “functional medicine” . He is both a local authority and international speaker on a multitude of important medical subjects with a functional medicine approach.
Dr. Blyweiss was one of three researchers doing the early work on chlorhexidine (phisohex, hibiclens) while earning his first post graduate degree at Temple University School of Pharmacy. During medical school he worked with the World Health Organization in vaccinating children in the island nation of Grenada. He was a team member of the physician relief program in Kendall, Florida after Hurricane Andrew in 1994.
He has traveled the world, most recently to Gabon and Croatia working closely with teams of specialists to identify new plant life and natural products for possible human benefit. He has consulted for and created state-of-the -art nutritional supplements for multiple nutritional companies since 1999. He helped form Eden Laboratories Ltd. doing stem cell research in Belize, CA. He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.
