Acupuncture & Natural Health Solutions offers the following functional medicine services to support client wellness and disease prevention:
- Laboratory-based functional system assessments
- Nutritional supplement programs to correct the labs
- Diet and lifestyle counseling, including weight loss and hormone balancing programs
My wellness philosophy involves balancing three main body systems.
- Hormonal system – produces your stress and sex hormones
- Digestive system – breaks down food for use by the body
- Detoxification system – protects you from free radicals and chemical toxicity, both from your environment and from your diet.
Every health issue can be traced back to a problem within one or more of these three body systems. If we can monitor how these systems are functioning, we can correct any disruptions and keep you healthy.
The at home, targeted lab testing for each of these systems, tells us how each system is working. Using this data, an individualized program to rebalance and restore your body is designed.
My experience shows that with an individualized diet plan, a scientifically based supplement program, stress reduction and exercise, a person’s health can improve dramatically – not only physically, but emotionally. With an ongoing wellness plan many health problems can be avoided, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity and hormone imbalances.
What does the Functional Medicine Consultations entail?
During your initial consultation we will spend an entire hour extensively discussing your family history, your health history, your current health care issues and your goals. Recommendations for lab tests that are appropriate for your specific health issues are then ordered.
Once your lab work has been completed, we will review your test results during a follow up functional medicine consultation. I will create an individualized health care program for you. This program will include one or more of the following components: dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements, herbs, exercise, lifestyle and stress management recommendations.
Subsequent monthly consultations are scheduled to monitor your progress and to modify your program as needed. Lifestyle Consultation appointments can be added if you want more patient education or personal support in making the recommended lifestyle adjustments.
At about the 6 month mark, we will want to retest to see if the system is now functioning normally. If so, you will be transferred to a maintenance program to help you sustain your system restoration.
If you have multiple systems affected, the above sequence of events will change somewhat to speed your healing. Not everyone wants to wait 6 months before we treat the digestive system. One of the advantages to this program is it is completely customizable based on your health care goals.
What type of tests are used?
The types of tests that are used are in home saliva, urine or stool lab kits. All health programs are based on these lab tests that assess the function of the three body systems: hormones, digestion and detoxification.
What if I am unable to attend a visit at the office?
Acupuncture & Natural Health Solutions is able to work with patients over the phone or skype because the health programs we design are based on the results of lab tests, not your pulse or tongue diagnosis. Be sure to let us know you want a phone consultation if this is your preference, otherwise I will be expecting you at the office.
