our clinic

Our Mission at Virtue of Health Wellness Center:

To give our patients a better understanding of the beautiful ecosystem that occurs within our bodies. When our bodies are not functioning optimally, this ecosystem is compromised. It is our mission to provide accurate knowledge on how to improve their health and lifestyle choices through identifying the route cause of “dis-ease” and healing the body with a balance of science and holistic modalities. 

Virtue Of Health is a medically supervised wellness center and functional medicine clinic staffed with a Medical Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Aesthetician and Holistic Health Coaches.  We specialize in addressing full spectrum health conditions including: aging, weight gain, hormone imbalance, chronic viral illness, immune system regeneration, autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and more. Our treatment services help to promote healthier cells and tissues for a better quality of life by improving energy and promoting overall well-being.

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease by using a systematic 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.

 

Functional medicine addresses the whole person and sets out to treat the root cause of disease, not just mitigate symptoms with medication. This patient-centered approach involves a more thorough health evaluation.  Factoring in ones history, lifestyle, environment, genetic components, and emotional state is important to properly diagnose and treat.  In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Her work involves intensive Live Blood Cell Analysis in Sarasota, Florida and Dry Layer Oxidative Stress Testing internationally. She uses high-resolution Dark Field and Bright Field microscopy to observe live blood cells. Each illumination shows different anomalies within red blood cells, white blood cells, and blood plasma, creating a unparalleled effectiveness of analysis.

Dr.Jaqlyn's journey in the health care industry began with her own health issues that arrived at a young age of 16 when she was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus, an inflammatory auto-immune disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues. Visiting doctor after doctor and getting nowhere, except 40lbs over weight and on prescription steroids, she decided to take her health into her own hands and pursue an education in Naturopathic Medicine. In over a decade she has managed to not only help keep her own health in control but has developed a true passion for spreading her knowledge by sharing her own experiences and implementing the protocols that she learned along the way. Dr. Jaqlyn does not personally see patients, but developed all of the protocols used within in the clinic, in conjunction with Virtue of Health's medical director.

She is constantly researching to ensure Virtue of Health's protocols are at the cutting edge of Functional Medicine.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

My name is Robin Woolley and I am a Social Worker in rural schools in northern New Mexico.  I have been providing social work services for the past 38 years.  I met Dr.Tinaro in Florida as she was working with Blood Microscopy.  I was feeling low energy and that I might need some supplements to bring me up to par.  Dr.Jaqlyn tested my blood which was an amazing process in itself.  It was neat to see my blood cells and then to have a consult on what I saw.  Dr.Tinaro was fabulous as she is very knowledgeable as a Naturopathic Physician and Health Coach.  She recommended supplements to help me balance my system once again and was very encouraging; giving me a positive outlook on my situation.  I bought the supplements and took them for the prescribed time limit which helped me make the jump I was looking for.  Thank you Dr. Tinaro, I would recommend you to anyone!  I don't take my health lightly and it's important to me that the health professional I am working with is not only knowledgeable but kind and a conscious human being.  Thank you for all of your support and may your practice flourish with abundance!
