Our approach to healthcare is well-rounded in addressing symptoms as well as system dysfunction from a holistic perspective. We take time to get to know you and focus on each of your health concerns to initiate the most effective treatment plan possible. We will order appropriate lab testing and evaluate results with functional ranges, rather than just using the standard lab ranges that say “normal” or “disease”. Using functional ranges helps us to identify patterns trending toward disease so we can address the issue before you qualify for a diagnosis.
The basis of our care involves using muscle testing techniques for immediate input on what your body needs. By stimulating organ-specific reflex points and testing the strength of associated muscles, we receive direct information from the body to begin a path of treatment. In order to identify organ-related problems on lab tests, the function of the organ has to have already decreased by 40%. So, how do we catch the problem before 40% function is gone and you are suffering? The techniques we use allow us to pick up on these problems before they are severe - meaning, we can treat your symptoms before your organs are truly struggling and feeding into disease. These unique methods of practice are explained further below.
How do we know when to use herbs vs. vitamins or something else? That's where muscle testing comes into play again. Our bodies are highly intelligent and can pick up on signals from the environment without us consciously realizing it. For example, when you feel that someone is staring at you without any other clues than just a feeling. That change in your environment was picked up by your subconscious (or autonomic) nervous system. By contacting a substance with your body, we can see an immediate response with a muscle test to know if your body will respond positively to the treatment
The foundation of optimal health is getting vital nutrients into the body through food. Without enough nutrients, our cells cannot perform their basic functions of energy production, detoxification, and regeneration. We discuss healthy nutrition with every patient and tailor recommendations to your specific needs.
Functional Lab Evaluation
Standard lab tests are ordered with most patients, but use more than just standard lab ranges to assess your health. Many people have completely normal lab results, but they don't feel well and they know something is off. This is why we use functional lab ranges. Standard lab ranges that may say a level of 6.9 is “normal” and 7.0 “disease”, for example, with no gray area. But with health, there are gray areas! Using functional ranges helps us to identify patterns trending toward disease (gray areas) so we can address the issue before you qualify for a diagnosis and get you back into the "optimal range".
These techniques use manual muscle testing, organ reflex points, and testing substances on the body to find causes of functional problems. We can communicate with the nervous system by noting the change in muscle response and find the specific treatment that the body needs to correct the problem.
Treatments often include accurate selection of supplements, manipulation of structure or energetics in the body, and removing mental/emotional blocks that cause stress.
Botanicals, or herbs, may be used as part of your treatment to support healing. Similar to nutrient supplements, the compounds in botanicals can be helpful in assisting cell processes, calming inflammation, treating infections, and more. Botanicals are often a great alternative to try when considering pharmaceutical interventions.
Homeopathic remedies are used with most patients and are selected with the muscle testing techniques used. These remedies are gentle, non-toxic medicines that support the body's healing processes. Remedies are administered during your treatment in the form of small sweet tasting pills that dissolve quickly. With homeopathy, you may notice a difference in the way you feel immediately, or over time after your treatment session.
