Dr. Cheryl Perlis, MD is best described as a doctor of beauty … as her patients lovingly call her. The secret to her amazing success is her unique ability to make patients beautiful—from the inside out.
The thought of a doctor’s office often brings to mind a sterile, serious, and somewhat stressful place we visit when we are sick and need medication. Perlis Wellness Center is the complete antithesis of this.
Patients walking into Perlis Wellness are pleasantly surprised by the luxurious, yet warm and welcoming feeling that exudes an aura of happiness and health.
People comment on how happy they are with their personal wellness and healing journeys, some even calling it their new life.
“The truth is that in today’s world, health is the true wealth,” says Dr. Perlis, a board-certified physician that specializes in natural hormone therapy, detox, rejuvenation, and aesthetic procedures. “When you feel you are progressing in your journey of beauty rejuvenation, health, and healing, all at the same time, you feel empowered and happy.”
“So many people today are feeling tired, aging fast, and losing their zest for life, for reasons that are totally avoidable,” she adds. “They want to feel better and look great; sometimes they just don’t know where to start and who to trust.”
It’s this trust that Dr. Perlis earns with her patients, just by being herself. It’s evident that she truly cares and that her years of experience have all brought her to this point in her life and career as a doctor.
Over the years, Dr. Perlis and her dedicated team have curated a very unique set of therapies that combine the wisdom of natural medicine with cutting edge FDA-approved technological interventions that enable true rejuvenation, healing, and a new spring of beauty from within.
“A lot of times, conventional medicine will just give people a medication for suppressing a symptom instead of addressing the underlying root causes—creating a lifelong drug dependency,” Dr. Perlis says. “I believe the body has an innate capacity to heal itself if we empower it with the right balance of therapies. This is what we address here—with a completely new way of thinking.”
The team at Perlis Wellness first begins with a comprehensive check of the whole body using an 8-minute diagnostic test from Germany. This cutting edge technology identifies both the issues currently manifested as well as the systems and organs that need watching carefully. Dr. Perlis firmly believes that it is always better to prevent a health issue from accelerating than treat it after the fact.
“It’s like an EKG for the whole body, only more detailed,” she exclaims. “Once I have this diagnostic report, I use this information along with their blood work results to create a personalized therapy protocol.”
Part of the healing protocol involves a new and unique therapeutic procedure called Matrix Regeneration Therapy (MRT), an FDA approved wellness device. Perlis Wellness Center is the only center in Chicago and one of a handful in the U.S. offering this therapy.
“Most of our body is the matrix, the connective tissue between the organs, which is where most toxins reside and disease starts,” she explains. “This machine detoxes the connective tissues, allowing regeneration at a cellular level and a reconnection between all of the organs.”
“Basically, MRT combines a number of therapies including mechanical cupping, and direct current therapy (which reads each of the organ frequencies). MRT then uploads healing frequencies to each organ. Each session lasts about 45 minutes, leaving patients feeling remarkably better.”
“MRT is a completely noninvasive, non-pharma, natural health stimulating procedure that can be used for detoxifying skin for facial rejuvenation, cellular detox, pain management, brain rejuvenation and detox, balancing hormone health naturally, and detox with an ionic footbath,” explains Dr. Perlis.
Dr. Perlis has been offering these new therapies since October of last year, and thus far, the results of her patients have been nothing short of astounding.
“These therapies are helping me essentially reboot my patients and add more grace to aging, which is natural and inevitable,” she says. “People that are really in tune with their bodies can tell the difference rather immediately, but I do suggest that most patients need six treatments.”
“It’s all about deciding how you want to live the next part of your life,” admits the mother of three who recently turned 60. “Personally, I am a huge paddle boarder (even in the winter) on Lake Michigan, I practice yoga, and I’m working on my surfing this year. I want to live life to the fullest, but I can’t do that if I don’t have those toxins out of my system. I now have a way to regenerate and reboot my body, so really part of this is my own journey. And the best part of my job is meeting people who too are looking to go on their own journey to wellness.”
She pauses, and then smiles. “Most people don’t realize that they can truly feel alive again,” she says. “I am here to remind them that they can and to handhold them on their journey.”
