About Chronic Illness
If you have been living with a chronic illness that affects your daily life, it may feel like you're in a losing battle. Maybe you've been seen by multiple doctors, only to be told there is no cure for your illness and nothing more can be done. At Cameron Wellness and Spa, Drs. Todd Cameron and Shawn Postma take a naturopathic approach to chronic illness by uncovering the root cause of the condition and treating it accordingly. Our team helps SLC patients successfully manage cancer, Lyme disease, toxic mold, mast cell activation syndrome, histamine intolerance, fibromyalgia, breast implant illness (BII), heavy metal toxicity, and more. We encourage you to schedule a consultation in Salt Lake City, UT to get the personalized attention you deserve.

"The Cameron wellness center staff are some of my favorite people! In addition to being a very happy patient there for years it is also the center where I send most of my clients in my psychotherapy practice to make sure they are getting the physical support needed for sound mental health. I feel lucky to count them as trusted providers and dear friends. Dr. Cameron has been of enormous help in my recovery from chronic illness and is extremely skilled in putting complex puzzle pieces together especially when it comes to women’s health. Highly recommend!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 26, 2021
"Working with Dr. Postma has been a positive experience for me. He takes the time to truly listen and to help me figure out a plan. I love the feedback I get through email with details and next steps because it makes everything simple and clear. Thankful to have stumbled across his information, it’s been a huge gift in my life to be heard and helped."- L.B. / Google / Aug 21, 2022
"I can’t even begin to explain how much Dr. Postma has helped me in my health journey. I have been to a handful of functional medicine doctors but Dr. Postma is different. He takes the time to figure out the root cause and tackle it from there. He made a simple change to the kind of iron I was taking and it did wonders for my iron levels, energy, and hair. He truly cares about his clients. Thanks Dr. Postma!!"- A.Q. / Facebook / Dec 09, 2019

How Is Chronic Illness Treated?
The first step to treating chronic illness is to attend an initial appointment at Cameron Wellness and Spa. We will review your comprehensive health history and perform a physical exam. We may order lab tests, such as blood work or other diagnostic screenings. Once a diagnosis has been made, we will create an individualized treatment plan to manage your condition. The specific treatment will be tailored to you based on the type and stage of illness. We may employ holistic treatments, like acupuncture, IV infusions, massage, IV ozone therapy, and nutrition counseling. The goal is to eliminate toxins, boost your energy, and support your body's natural healing mechanism on your journey to optimal health and well-being.
