While our functional medicine practice is capable of addressing a broad range of conditions, we have developed a particular expertise in the following areas.
How we can impact pain? We incorporate the data from x-rays and MRI’s, but we also observe how you stand, sit, walk, or is one leg longer than the other, is one hip twisted slightly forward or backward. All this affects our feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders and neck.
Once we have a diagnosis of where the pain is coming from (ie. low back pain because our hips are tilted) we strive for balance through stretches, exercises, acupuncture, cupping, ultrasound, massage, e-stim, far infrared, heat, herbs, and supplements to Nourish, Move, and Unlock pain.
We use blood and or saliva panels to help diagnose hormone disbalances. Whether your premenopausal, menopausal, or a cycling woman. We use tests to find where your dis-balances (in progesterone, estrogens, testosterone, FSH,LH) are and use natural products like herbs, supplements, or acupuncture to treat you.
We use a blood test and/or muscle testing to diagnose food and air borne allergies or sensitivities.
After we diagnose food sensitivities or allergies, we are also healing the root of the problem –the gut through nutritional protocols and supplements which allow healing in the digestive system. We may also run a GI panel to find out if the patient has parasites, fungus/yeast, or bacterial infections. This helps us to get all the information to create a game plan for optimal healing.
We also use a system called NAET, which helps to lessens the sensitivity of any substance.
After we diagnosis airborne allergies or get a report from the allergist (skin test), we strengthen the immune system through herbs and supplements. This helps to prevent infections that can often occur after allergic reactions. We also use the NAET technique to lessen sensitivity to airborne allergies with amazing success.
The thyroid and adrenals are a part of the hormone system for both men and women. They are crucial to metabolism, how we take on stress, body temperature, how much energy we have, or any sleeping issues (trouble going to sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or waking up early).
We use blood test and saliva panels to determine the state of your thyroid and adrenals. Once we come up with a diagnosis we treat using acupuncture, herbs, supplements, relaxation techniques, and possibly emotional work.
We also specialize in Hashimoto’s (Autoimmune thyroid condition). We have the experience and know how to calm those reactions as well as get your body into a state of balance. Our goal is to get those antibodies into normal ranges.
We have helped many women get their bodies ready for pregnancy and for the birth of a healthy child. We run month long hormone panels to discover what is occurring with your entire hormone cycle.
We use herbs, supplements, and acupuncture to balance out your cycle. This will often result in remedying symptoms like cramping, PMS, breast tenderness, acne, low back pain, and mood fluctuations.
We may also have you go through a cleanse which will get the body to work more efficiently to get you ready for a healthy pregnancy.
For men we run blood test, saliva hormone panels, and sperm panels to diagnose any issues. We then use herbs, supplements, acupuncture to correct any imbalances. Research shows that up to 40% of infertility is do to the man!
