Addressing The Root Causes Of Illness
1 - Identify
Functional lab testing provides detailed insight into the body’s many functions. Testing can reveal breakdowns and hidden stressors that keep the body from healing.
One size doesn’t fit all. Countless people can experience identical health issues, but all have different underlying causes. Your body’s requirements for health are unique and need individualized attention.
- Organic Acid Testing
- Bio/Chemical/Metal Toxicity Panels
- Genetic Testing
- Full Panel Bloodwork
- Hormone Panels
- Microbiome Panels
- Food/Environmental Allergy Testing
2 - Detoxify
Toxins play a crucial role in the development of illnesses. They can suppress your immune system and wreck your hormone levels. Binders are special supplements that grab onto toxins and safely remove them from your body. Lowering your toxin levels has systemic benefits from balancing hormones to eliminating food & environmental sensitivities.
Bacteria, fungi, and parasites live inside us and are greatly affected by the toxins we carry. An overload of toxic substances can cause overgrowth of these pathogens. Natural therapies utilizing herbs and probiotics can control overgrowth and restore a healthy balance of beneficial microbes in your body.
3 - Nutrify
IV vitamin therapy supplies the body with immediate nutrition and hydration that can accelerate the healing process. Ozone therapy delivers oxygen directly into the bloodstream and detoxifies the entire body. Ozone therapy can improve the outcome of any therapy, while simultaneously mitigating side-effects.
Our heavy metals program identifies the type and removes toxic metals from the body, including radioactive minerals.
Our mold programs identify and detoxify mycotoxins, mold colonizations, and fungal overgrowths. Opening and optimizing the body’s natural drainage pathways are crucial to recovery, particularly the liver and gallbladder. We use binders to grab onto and safely remove the biotoxins which cause the illness, then remove fungal, parasitic, and bacterial infections that often accompany mold illness.
The Lyme Disease program identifies and eliminates inter-cellular infections like Borrellia, Babesia and Bartonella that make up Lyme Disease. This program also removes biofilms and glyphosate from the tissues, of which both are major contributors to the proliferation of Lyme.
Parasite cleansing is a foundational pillar in detoxification. The success of Lyme, mold, and heavy metal programs often depend on the eradication of parasites from the body. Parasite protocols can be tricky to navigate and often require cycling on and off to kill both the adults and larvae. We make this process easy with our parasite programs, and you will notice an improvement in your overall health.
Autoimmunity is driven by irritants in the body from many factors, including: foreign proteins, infections, and toxicities. Removing these factors allows the immune system to calm down and reduce the number of pro-inflammatory signals that can lead to collateral damage of your own tissue.
Fibromyalgia often is referred as an idiopathic diagnosis, meaning the cause is unknown. This condition correlates with the destruction of mitochondria by Lyme, mold, parasites, and multiple chemical toxins.
Detoxifying these poisonous substances and rebuilding mitochondria results in more energy, which means more healing and less chronic inflammation.
Many toxins are lipophilic, meaning fat loving. The brain is made mostly of fat, making it a good place for toxins to store. Dr. Alan Macdonald discovered parasite fragments and DNA within the spinal fluid of many degenerative disease patients. The gut transmits detailed information to the brain through neurotransmitters that influence neurological function based on conditions in the digestive tract.
All of these have a profound impact on the health and function of the brain and nervous system. Cleansing the body removes these toxicities from the gut, tissues, and even the brain so these organs can heal.
Intestinal permeability, also called “leaky gut”, arises from undigested proteins, toxins, and pathogenic overgrowth in the intestinal tract damaging the mucosal immune barrier and entering into blood circulation. This can lead to serious autoimmune and chronic system inflammatory conditions. Repairing leaky gut is a core part of our functional programs.
Hormone imbalances and toxicity directly affect the fertility of both men and women. Our programs detox the body of harmful substances known to affect infertility and hormones such as glyphosate and bisphenols. Cleansing the body improves overall function and can lead to much healthier pregnancies with lessened complications.
Weight management can be tricky for many people. Hormones, toxins, food quality, dietary habits, and stress all affect the body’s regulatory systems related to weight gain. With the unprecedented levels of hormone dysfunction, chemical poisons, and convenience foods devoid of nutrition affecting the population, it’s easy to see why America has an obesity epidemic.
With the right nutrition, supplementation, and detoxification, the body will return to an ideal weight.
Reduced neural inflammation allows the brain to detoxify and heal, leading to improved mental capacity.
Cleaning the blood, veins and arteries leads to Improved cardiovascular function and nutrition delivery to organs.
Healthy habits, nutrition, and detoxification turn on good genetic expressions, while bad repression negative expressions.
Removing stealth infections and toxic waste calm and re-balance an over-active immune system.
Removing toxins heals leaky gut and reduces food intolerance. Digestive organs properly break down food, lowering gut inflammation and waste that bad microbes feed on.
The body naturally and effortlessly manages an ideal weight when given the proper nutrition and removal of toxins and infections.
As the name implies, we assess the function of the body to identify obstacles that impair the proper function of the body. The same symptoms many people face can be caused by countless different reasons. It’s our job to find and assist the body in removing these causes so healing can occur naturally.
We work to uncover underlying factors contributing to your illness through cutting edge lab testing and create custom programs that address your specific health needs as an individual.
We set ourselves apart by doing the following:
- Functional Lab Work
- Customized Health Programs
- Documented Results
- Mentoring & Education
Yes! Our Functional Health services and programs are designed to be accessible to long-distance clients. Supplements and non-blood labs can be shipped directly to you. Blood labs can be collected at a local lab drawing center.
Our programs are easy to follow and allow you to continue your daily activities, rather than check into a wellness center for weeks at a time.
Programs last anywhere from 3-12 months. The length of the healing process depends on a number of factors: length and severity of illness, environmental work/home conditions, mental/emotional stressors, financial issues.
As we lay a foundation of cleansing and nutrition, the body is able to rebuild and transition from a state of sickness to a state of wellness.
Food today lacks the essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. We focus on finding a diet that works with your body and supplements that deliver targeted nutrition to organs that need it most. Once we establish the correct nutrition plan for you, you may see signs of increased mental cognition, a decrease in weight, and an increase in daily productivity.
The body makes waste as it carries out everyday functions. If you don’t take out the trash in your own home, you will quickly create an unsanitary environment that negatively affects your health.
Detoxification is critically important to staying healthy in today’s environment. Your water, air, and food supply are tainted with unnatural chemical poisons that wreak havoc on your health. When these toxins enter into your body, they must be neutralized and eliminated by various organs. If they are not properly removed, they will recirculate and continually poison you, causing disease.
Lab testing is highly encouraged to all clients, as it can identify underlying causes to health conditions. Without lab testing, we cannot possibly know the type and quantity of toxicities affecting you.
Some lab tests only need to be run once, while others we run regularly to objectively measure progress in your wellness journey.
The time it takes to notice results depends entirely on the unique needs of the body. For some, removing themselves from a toxic environment results in significantly reduced symptoms within days. Others notice gradual improvements over 6-12 months.
The road to recovery has ups and downs, functioning much like an onion; as you peel back the layers of causes and symptoms, the body’s healing response changes to meet the needs of next layer. This can result in worsening or symptoms for a time, as well as a return of old symptoms. Some refer to this phenomenon as the body retracing its old wounds to heal them properly.
Your first appointment will review your history to identify healing opportunities and create a roadmap to health that includes: supplement protocol, diet plan, targeted health building principles, as well address any question you have.
Insurance does not cover any of our program, but will occasionally cover certain lab work.
