Dr Scott on Gut Health and Fermentation

#kimchi is healthy because it is #fermented and supplies our gut with healthy #bacteria to help balance it. 

Fermentation dates back thousands of years. 

To make kimchi napa cabbage is soaked in salt water to kill off any harmful #bacteria. And then, the remaining bacteria called lactobacillus, the beneficial bacteria found in yoghurt and in a healthy gut, converts the sugars and carbohydrate into lactic acid, which preserves the vegetables and gives kimchi its signature tang. 

Add other healthy ingredients like ginger, garlic, daikon and chili peppers and you’ve created a super food in a jar. 

We add just a small dollop to our meals, either breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Dr Scott of Wishing Wellness on Weight and Health

I have not owned a home scale in over 20 years. I occasionally check my weight at the office but without attachment to the number. 

Your weigh is just a number. It is not an indicator of your health and wellness. The scale and the number (which on home scales is often inaccurate) should not be a measure of your happiness. My goal is to help patients achieve health and happiness. Using a scale daily, in my experience of working with others, often has the opposite affect. 

If you like having goals with measurable outcomes try using a pedometer or keeping a food or gratitude journal.

If losing weight is your goal try shifting your prospective to have it be the side affect of whatever lifestyle changes you make that bring you happiness.

Dr. Scott on Functional Medicine Wishing Wellness Medical

“Functional medicine is about causes, not symptoms. It is getting to the root of the problem.” —Mark Hyman, MD

Chronically elevated cortisol levels are both inflammatory and catabolic and cause a myriad of disorders including: thyroid and metabolic dysfunction, cognitive decline, low serotonin levels resulting in depression, irritability, anxiety, carb cravings, immune suppression, altered glucose metabolism, elevated lipid levels, increased blood pressure, low melatonin levels resulting in altered sleep patterns, musculoskeletal issues resulting in difficulty recovering from exercise and possible subsequent injuries.

Cortisol levels are also related to mental acuity and can factor into degenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. – Vanessa Romero

Cold Water Detox

Cold water has been shown to improve circulation by encouraging blood to surround our organs, which can then help combat skin and heart issues. As cold water hits the body, it's ability to get blood circulating leads to the arteries pumping blood more efficiently.

Cold showers have been shown to relieve depression symptoms due to the intense impact of cold receptors in the skin, which send an overwhelming amount of electrical impulses from the peripheral nerve endings to the brain. Thus, it produces an antidepressive effect, and boosts moods, making it a pick-me-up.

Do you like to take cold showers?

Come From Away at The Smith Center- Las Vegas

Come From Away playing at The Smith Center is a musical set in the week following the September 11 attacks and tells the true story of what transpired when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland.

The characters in the musical are based on (and in most cases share the names of) real Gander residents as well as some of the 7,000 stranded travelers they housed and fed.

The musical has been received by audiences and critics as a cathartic reminder of the capacity for human kindness in even the darkest of times and the triumph of humanity over hate.

Wishing Wellness Review

I can’t say enough wonderful, positive things about Dr. Scott ! I have had a long journey to find Dr. Scott and I’m never going back !

His practice of functional medicine has really helped to change my life by not just doling out meds to treat symptoms but listens and works with you to find and treat the actual problem and with direct primary care he’s always available !

I pay a monthly fee and I have access to him anytime I need him, with none of the hassle from insurance ! He is a life changer

Functional Medicine at Wishing Wellness

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE IS ALL ABOUT YOU.
In simplest terms, think of it as the ultimate in personalized, one-on-one, therapeutic relationships. It’s a health-focused, patient-centric partnership, in which doctor and patient work together to dig deep and find out the causes of illness and disease.

Functional Medicine is not an either/or system, but rather a true combination of Conventional Medicine and many different alternative and complementary therapies. It acknowledges the strengths of Conventional Medicine for acute and crisis-care, but also realizes that this approach does not have the tools for preventing and treating chronic diseases.

Wishing Wellness Primary Care Review

"After going through several doctors for my health in Las Vegas, I found Dr. Scott. I Had my mother from the east coast who was very Ill fly to Vegas for alternative medicine, and treatments. Dr. Scott was so informative on different treatments and Holistic options for my mother. He was very quick to get back to us if we ever had questions or concerns weather it be same day phone appointments, or office visits. He treated us like more than just a patient, we could tell it wasn’t just a job to him, like most physicians. He genuinely cares. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get the best care and he is reasonably priced."

Wishing Wellness Direct Primary Care Review

"I went to Dr. Scott with a long list of minor health complaints. After blood tests showed nothing, Dr. Scott encouraged me to try some dietary changes and supplements. He worked with me to tailor a plan that was right for me and educate me on some of the nuances about making better food choices, and how that can directly affect my overall sense of well-being. Weeks later, I have more energy, I've lost weight, and most of my complaints are gone or diminished. I'm grateful to have found him."

Vitamins & Supplements

Most people get the vitamins & minerals they need from the food they eat.

Many of my patients supplement their diet with vitamins in order to help balance their needs. For example, calcium and vitamin D are important for keeping bones strong and reducing bone loss; folic acid decreases the risk of certain birth defects; and omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils might help some people with heart disease.

As a primary care & Functional Medicine MD- Dr Scott helps patients find out what supplements they need and don’t need.

We have recommendations on our website for the brands that we trust. WishingWellnessMedical.com

Direct Primary Care & Functional Medicine at Wishing Wellness

If you or anyone you know is looking for a partnership in your health journey, regardless of if you have health insurance or not, we are here to give you support and individualized care.

As a small business owner our family has TERRIBLE health care coverage, we basically just have catastrophic insurance and pay out of pocket for everything. I have ALWAYS supported affordable healthcare and I put my money where my mouth is. In 2018 alone I attended several rally’s and meeting that dealt with affordable health care. I wrote letters, many, and I made dozens of phone calls to make my voice heard.

I did this because I all too often see people going bankrupt, people with insurance going bankrupt, because something happens. 
My policy it to take care of my patients and part of that is lessening their stress- stress causes health problems which leads to bigger problems. My medical practice is not a substitute for insurance, patients use me us as a means of prevention and taking care of basic health problem that can be dealt with in a primary care office.

We are so grateful to all of our patients and look forward to meeting new patients who become part of our Wishing Wellness Family. In order to continue to provide excellent care to our patients we limit new patient enrollment.

If you have any questions check out our website or call our office and ask for Ren- she’ll answer any questions you have.


What is Direct Primary Care

Looking for a great Primary Care Physician but don't have insurance?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a concept of medicine that cuts out insurance companies and provides people with excellent primary care. It allows Doctors to spend time with their patients, get to know them and help them navigate their health.

Dr. Scott sees patients at Wishing Wellness Medical where we offer same day or next day appointments.

What is Functional Medicine

Dr. Scott Jacobson is one of a small group of functional medicine providers in Las Vegas.

What is Functional Medicine:

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
