Morning Star Health Center, which accepts men, women and children for medical care and provides a variety of health and beauty services, took three Readers’ Choice Awards.
Owner Carrie Power, a nurse practitioner, received a gold award for the best physician category, and the business received gold honors for best clinic. Morning Star also received a bronze award for nontraditional health services.
“This is an unbelievable honor,” Power said. “I am honored and humbled by that.”
The clinic has won Readers’ Choice awards in the past, but this time, it was in three categories.
Morning Star is celebrating its 10th year in service and offers the traditional medical services including X-rays and laboratory tests and goes beyond the traditional treatments to help patients, including a stem-cell therapy.
“I believe in helping people be as healthy as they can be,” Power said. “I don’t believe people have to get decrepit. They can be healthy well into their golden years.”
Power said the clinic offers prolozone therapy, which uses a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma that contains the patient’s own stem cells. The therapy also includes the use of vitamins, minerals, anti-inflammatories, homoepathics and ozone.
“That’s an incredible treatment for pain in the joints,” she said.
Morning Star also provides a counselor, hearing tests, acupuncture, aesthetic services, including waxing, facials and body wraps, body sculpting, weight-loss help, hormone therapy and more.
Power, who was a public health nurse for many years and worked for the Indian Health Services, employs roughly 15 full- and part-time people. She said the clinic is Christian-based.
Morning Star is planning a special on aesthetic programs in November.
