  • Drs. Tapscott, Kannankeril and Voss are available for in-office visits if requested but are encouraging telemedicine visits.
  • Dr. Coy Roskosky is scheduling appointments for the week of April 7 for Monday and Wednesday from 10 am- 2 pm. 
  • LabCorp at NIHA is open and they are not testing for coronavirus so it is a good place to get your lab tests completed. Hours are 9-3.

What Dr. McClure Does to Stay Healthy


Dear NIHA Patients,

We know this has been a very trying and confusing time for many and we want you to know that NIHA medical, dental and other services remain open with the intention of best serving you.  We care deeply about your health and are here to care for you.

National Integrated Health Associates is closely monitoring the evolving situation for the Coronavirus, COVID-19. We are vigilant for the safety of our staff and patients and conduct a risk assessment on patients prior to coming to the office.

Guidance for Appointments 

For the protection of our other patients and our dedicated staff, we are asking that all patients planning to come into our office stop before reaching the front desk to self-assess using the following questions:





Have you had a recent fever OR symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g. cough or shortness of breath)?


Any person, including health care personnel, who has had close contact with a confirmed
COVID-19 patient within 14 days of the start of symptoms.

Have you had a recent fever AND symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g. cough or shortness of breath) AND tested negative for influenza?


A history of travel from affected geographic areas within 14 days of the start of symptoms.

Have you had a recent fever OR symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g. cough or shortness of breath) AND tested negative for influenza AND a respiratory panel was negative?


A history of residing in a nursing home or long-term care facility within 14 days of the start of symptoms.


Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and must include some exposure as above.

Any office visits that can be done via Skype, Zoom or telephone that do not require an in-person visit are encouraged.  If your insurance company normally reimburses your office visits, please check to see if they will cover telemedicine appointments as well.

For other services that require in-person visits, including physical examinations, chiropractic work, acupuncture, IV therapy, colon hydrotherapy or thermography, please be sure to let our staff know if you have recently traveled abroad, have come in contact with any suspected infected persons, or if you are experiencing any respiratory or flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, and/or coughing.  If any of the above situations apply to you, or if you suspect you have the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we ask that you reschedule your appointment to keep you and others safe.

Our lab continues to be open at this time as well, for testing (both LabCorp and specialty testing) as well as for IV therapies. 

Coronavirus Testing

For anyone interested in Coronavirus testing, we are directing patients to GW’s Ambulatory Care Center at 22nd & I St NW (https://www.gwdocs.com/locations/downtown-2120-l-street/).

Protect Yourself and Others

We are following CDC guidelines at this time and encourage all patients to do the same. 

Thorough 20-second hand washing, social distancing and self-isolation remain the best ways to prevent transmission of this virus. 

Our staff is regularly sanitizing all surfaces in the office, including door handles, chairs, countertops, examination tables and bathrooms.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Do not share glasses, eating utensils, water bottles, etc. 
  • Practice social distancing and self-isolation as recommended by the CDC

It is important to keep your immune system as healthy as possible during this stressful time.  Focus on the basics of drinking plenty of water, getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy diet low in sugar, getting moderate amounts of exercise, engaging in stress reduction (including meditation and deep breathing), and getting as much fresh air as possible given that we are all mostly indoors during this time.

If you have any questions about this virus, please see the CDC website for a wealth of up-to-date information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/

If you have any further questions or concerns, please call us at 202-237-7000 to arrange an appointment (in person or via phone) with your practitioner.

As always, we are here to help and wish you and your family good health.

Want to Know Your Genetic Risks?    genetic testing

Want to Prevent Health Problems and Regain Your Optimal Health?


Get Your “Comprehensive Genetic Analysis” Today!

Special 50% Off!

At this moment, your unique genetic makeup can be predisposing you to all types of medical disorders, even before symptoms actually show up. You may have been suffering for

years with nagging chronic health problems ans asking yourself, "Why me?"

Why live in the dark, when new medical technology can answer your questions.

Genetic Testing Can Provide a More Complete Picture of Your Health
Now, inexpensive Genetic Testing can provide insights into your risk factors for future health problems. They can show changes or variations in your DNA that could lead to disease. You can take charge of chronic ailments now, possibly even preventing them from happening.

In many cases you may be able to modify the function of your common and important genetic variants (or genetic variabilities) to maintain optimal health and decrease risk.

With proper nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes that are unique to your genetic requirements, it may help change your genetic vulnerabilities.

How Do I Get This Genetic Information?
Tests such as the 23andMe, which can be ordered online directly by the consumer, can provide valuable information about general health risks and your ancestry. However, due to legal restrictions, 23andme are not allowed to reveal to you specifically what your genes are. The FDA is concerned that consumers will worry unnecessarily about specific genes. But the 23andme report will provide a link to your genes whihc can be run through an app (www.MTHFRsupport.com) which does reveal hundreds of possible common, important and modifiable quirky variants (called SNPs) .

These can be interpreted by a medical professional to help explain your health problems, predispositions to disease in your family and laboratory data that may define metabolic issues.

A positive result does not necessarily guarantee that you will ever develop a health condition, nor does a negative result suggesting reduced risk insure that you will never develop certain diseases. Environmental and lifestyle factors also contribute to health and wellness. The genetic information is helpful for a more complete health picture so you can modifiy your risks and keep certain genes relativley quiet and activate helpful genes.

A healthcare professional that is familiar with interpreting genetic testing can provide valuable insights. They can provide personalized recommendations based on the analysis of the data.

Interpretation of Genetic Tests
Dr. Charles Gant MD, PhD was taught in medical school that all human diseases and health conditions are caused by an interaction between environmental stressors and genes. Through his career over 4 decades, his expertise centered on diagnostic testing for the environmental stressors part – such as toxins, nutrients, emotional stress, metabolism, allergies and chronic infections – which is called functional medicine. Now a new age of medicine is finally opening up and he can see how the interaction between environmental stressors and genes explains the greater picture of his patient's health.

“If You Don't Test, You’ve Guessed!”

Family Constellation Therapy Workshop Dates

constellation workshop
Jan. 11, 2020
Feb. 22, 2020
Apr. 4, 2020  CANCELLED
May 16, 2020*
June 20, 2020*
* A note from Mary Rentschler. M.Ed., - May & June workshops will depend on the virus' status in our area, and on state and CDC guidelines. Check in early May for an update. Our ancestors have survived crises like this. May their support be with us now!

Join us to experience how the "knowing field" can bring new understanding, conflict resolution and peace to your family or organization.

"I feel strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors. It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which is passed on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to ...complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished."  Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
This is an opportunity to experience this extraordinary process for yourself.

What is Family Constellation Therapy and How Does it Work?

Healing Ancestral Wounds through the Energy Field
Family Constellations vividly demonstrates the profound impact of our families and ancestors. Hidden family events and dynamics from past generations may manifest in our current lives as illness, relationship problems, addiction, financial instability, lack of purpose, depression, etc. Bert Hellinger, an international figure in the healing community, developed this method to uncover hidden dynamics which entangle us in fates not truly our own, but the legacy of others who did not resolve them in their lifetimes.

You must see and feel the constellation process in order to get it. Serving as a representative is like becoming an antenna that  receives information from the family soul of the client, somehow mysteriously present in the room. Unseen forces that have held family members captive in life patterns not previously understood come to light. Constellations reveal the root causes of pain and "stuckness" and offer an opportunity for healing and transformation.

What can this mean for you?  "Nearly everyone has a part of themselves that cannot find peace or come to rest. In the silence of our dreams, in our restless thoughts, in the darkest places of our hearts, the terrible experiences that befell our fathers and mothers, grandparents, aunts and uncles live on inside us.....

"We honor our ancestors' losses and soothe their pain by embracing that we are the living fruit of their sacrifices. They grieve when we suffer. They bless us when we take our lives and love well." -Dan Cohen,  author, I Carry Your Heart in My Heart


What You May Learn in a Family Constellation Workshop

  • Learn and witness the entanglements that may cause illness
  • Reveal dynamics that are not available through our conscious awareness
  • May help resolve health issues such as chronic poor health, depression, anxiety, addiction



The workshop is hosted by the Constellations Group.  Visit www.theconstellationsgroup.com for more information, or call  Carol Heil,  LSCW-C, 301-899-4841.
