Heron Medical was initially conceived as a simple expression of my married name, de la Garza translated as “of the Heron”.
As the years have passed, and my practice and vision have transformed, I have come to understand the importance of my identity as an individual and provider as they are defined by this powerful name.
The Heron comes in many forms. Great white, blue, and egret, symbolize origin ties as well as diversity. They are solitary, yet dependent on their mate for life. They represent abundance and growth but also an appreciation for what “is”. This is reflected by Heron who represents patience and meditative practice. Heron in this way symbolizes balance – which is at the heart of wellness.
Heron embodies discovering a new path and the creation of new life.
Long life. Good luck.
“Why am I still sick?” We hear this time and time again from new clients who have seen many providers and even specialists before. We know it’s been frustrating – but the good news that you're finally in the right place!
Unlike many health providers, we take a holistic approach incorporating functional medicine, advanced lab testing paired with up-to-date nutritional science so we can identify exactly what’s out of balance and then help your body return to balance, naturally.
Our functional medicine approach is unique because we address both current + longterm health issues in our comprehensive programs. Our goal is to restore your body’s innate healing potential by removing triggering conditions & events, supporting detox and cellular rebuilding.
After our in-depth intake, exploring both past and present symptoms and reviewing lab tests, we’ll craft a personalized treatment protocol for your specific needs so you can finally leave your chronic dis-ease behind.
At Heron Wellness, we focus on getting to the root causes of your chronic wellness issues – examining the key imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now... instead of just focusing on masking symptoms with expensive prescription meds.
We focus on the “up-stream” triggers of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, as well as mindset issues that all determine how healthy you are.
Functional Medicine is the “medicine of the future” because it focuses on restoring your body’s innate healing potential, and not just treating symptoms. It uses a combination of science-driven testing with holistic health practices, to treat the whole person and not just parts of your body.
Since each person is biologically unique, a “one size fits all” approach never works. That’s why when you have a precise understanding of what triggered the symptoms, you can craft a precise treatment plan without relying on guesswork!
“I can’t recommend Dr. Amy enough, she is a pleasure to work with in every way. Four years ago she helped me through the most difficult time of my life by genuinely caring about me and truly wanting me to get well. Together we came up with a plan that worked great for me and included very regular visits with her, medication, talk therapy, and an amazing mindfulness course centered around addiction. She has also seen and helped several family members and close friends across all areas of the health and wellness spectrum. I will forever be grateful that I found her when I did and plan to see her for years to come.”
“Amy is the most amazing Dr. I have ever seen in my life. She is so passionate about working with addicts. She spends the time to really talk to you and get to know you. I can walk into her office and tell her anything and never feel like I’m being judged or dismissed. She’s been a Dr and therapist rolled into one. She has helped change my life!”
