There is another option to the standard care of medicine!
There is a root cause to your disease that can often be addressed so that you don’t have to medicate symptoms indefinitely.
I know this may sound strange or radical in America today because we have been trained to think in terms of the two options – continue the symptom or take pharmaceutical drugs. But the following statistics indicate just how much our diet and lifestyle are affecting our heath.
- The Pima Indians of southern Arizona had absolutely no recorded cases of Diabetes in their history prior to World War II. Today 50% of that tribe is afflicted with that disease. The primary difference today is that they are eating the Standard American Diet (SAD) instead of their native diet.
- In Okinawa Japan they don’t even have a word for “osteoporosis” because it doesn’t exist there. But when those same Japanese women come to America, they will, over time, develop that “disease” at the same rate as American women.
40% of kids born in America today have one of the asthma/allergy/eczema “diseases.” In the rest of the world’s kids it’s about 10%. But when those kids from other countries move to America, their rates rise to the same 40%.
- One out of two Americans today will die from heart disease.
- One out of three women and one out of two men will get cancer in their lifetimes.
- The CDC has stated that the generation of kids born after the year 2000 will be the first generation of kids whose lifespan will be less than their parents (for the first time since the American Revolution).
- Autoimmune immune “diseases” are rising at a rate of 15-30% since 1960. There are now almost 100 autoimmune diseases.
- Before World War II, Americans were the healthiest people in the world. Now, out of the top fifteen industrialized countries in the world, we rank fifteenth in life expectancy. We are dying younger, going to the doctor more, taking more prescription pharmaceuticals, and being diagnosed with more “diseases” than anyone else.
I believe that by any measuring stick, we must, at the very least, start to question the “one symptom, one drug” paradigm. Here at Exodus – New Beginnings, we have seen for ourselves the failure of that paradigm.
We will never be able to medicate or operate our way out of a disease we “behaved” ourselves into.
But we have also seen the power and efficacy of the new paradigm that works with the body, removing the causes of disease and strengthening its natural defenses.
We invite you to come explore this new paradigm and the science that validates its legitimacy. Come hear from our patients here (See Patient Testimonials..)
Come and find out for yourself if this more natural, intuitive health approach isn’t what you have been searching for all along!
Chelation (pronounced key-LAY-shun) comes from a greek word that means “claw”.Chelation is a chemical process in which a substance is used to bind molecules, such as metals or minerals, and hold them tightly so that they can be removed from the body. Chelation has been used to rid the body of excess or toxic metals. It has some uses in conventional medicine, such as heart failure.
Live O2 Treatments
Live Oxygen is healing without drugs or chemicals and without surgery or invasive techniques. Hyper-oxygenation gets oxygen into the cells of body parts which already have turned to fermentation for their energy needs. Live Oxygen starts a healing and restorative process where normally there would be none.
Wellness Exams and Follow-ups
Our long term goal for every patient is for them to become symptom and disease-free, be able to eliminate all prescription medicines, and achieve their idea weight. We believe in addressing the root causes of your health challenges.
IV Nutritional Therapies
Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals and other natural substances into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV Nutrition. These treatments aid in conditions like acute vial illness (flu, etc.), asthma and high blood pressure.

- Trigger Point Injections

Most frequent questions and answers for Mindee Flippin, M.D.
WHY DID YOU LEAVE YOUR TRADITIONAL PRACTICE?
For several years I have not been satisfied with the long-term health of my patients. People just kept getting sicker and sicker without getting well. I felt there had to be a better way of treating them. I wanted them to have a better quality of life. After a lot prayer, I spent several months training and learning integrative or functional medicine. I can now seek for the root cause of a medical problem and cure it instead of just treating symptoms with band aids.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
No we do not. There are several reasons for that. When we were required to implement EMRs (Electronical Medical Records), we were told it would save us time. As most physicians have realized, they are much more burdensome. With all of the new insurance regulations, we have to spend more time filling out forms than we ever did before. Also, as the regulations have increased, the amount of money the insurance companies pay out has decreased. It has become a numbers game to keep our practice open. In accepting cash only (credit cards, checks, cash, etc.) I can now make my own standards as far as how much time I can spend with the patient. Also, as long as I take insurance, they can have some say in how our practice is run – what questions we have to ask, how long we can take, what we can charge, etc. Now, we no longer have that burden.
WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE OR FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Integrative or functional medicine is a new and rapidly growing area of medicine that seeks to approach sickness and disease from a different viewpoint than a traditional “one symptom, one drug” paradigm. I call this new model the “do what’s best for the patient” model. In integrative medicine, the physician expands beyond the narrow drug/surgery approach taught in western medical schools, utilizing various treatment modalities that have been proven effective. Its goal is to address the root cause of sicknesses and diseases, rather than manage symptoms.

WILL YOU TRY TO PUT ME ON A SPECIAL DIET AND A LOT OF SUPPLEMENTS?
I tell my patients that I never want them to take ANYTHING a doctor recommends without knowing the reason behind it. That’s why I try to educate you in new dietary habits. The truth is, the diet that most people are already on, the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), is one of the deadliest diets mankind has ever known. It is causing more cancer, diabetes, strokes, heart attacks (and just about every other degenerative disease) than any other diet known to man. We will teach you the WHY behind the need for dietary changes and then it will be your choice whether to continue eating dead, disease-causing “food-like substances” or more real food that God made for the building and maintenance of the body. We will also teach you what health-building substances your body requires in order to function optimally and how to get these nutrients in as natural a form as possible, first through diet, and then through carefully selected supplements as needed. In an ideal world, supplementation would be unnecessary, but because of modern farming techniques, mineral depletion of the soil, contemporary cooking techniques, and other factors, virtually everyone needs some targeted nutritional supplementation.
DO YOU DO IV THERAPY?
Yes, we have several kinds of supportive nutritional intravenous(IV) therapies. We love our IV therapy because we bypass the gut and put the nutrients directly into your bloodstream. Our iv therapies compliment other strategies in dealing with various health issues. During your consultation with me, we will both come up with a game plan on which IV therapies are needed.
