We do not treat disease. Nor do we offer cures. The book, The Disease Delusion, written by the father of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Bland, clearly outlines why this approach does not work for chronic illness.
Instead we offer a complete systematic approach to uncover the causes of your symptoms, which then finds what you need to support healing of the causes of those symptoms.
We are very effective at helping really sick people get well.
So, if you really want to get better, then you are probably in the right place. It’s a lot of hard work to get there. There are no magic bullets, nor is it common that what worked for someone else will work for you. You are unique, and your path to healing is unique – only for you.
Below is a brief summary of the presentation on this topic. All statements in the summary are referenced in the video presentation by slide #. The presentation uses the scientific journals to help explain what is commonly involved in each topic.
The real question is do you want to get better?
Despite the heroic efforts of modern medicine, Cardiovascular Disease is responsible for one out of every three deaths in the US of A. 2 And 50% of those treated remain at the same risk for heart attacks, even though their 5 reported risk factors are within “normal” limits. 3
Surprisingly, the 5 risk factors for Cardiovascular Disease are hardly known to those being treated. Those 5 risk factors are: oxidative stress, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, endothelial dysfunction, and vascular dysfunction. 6, 7, 9, 12
Most only know of cholesterol, high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis, which really are the bodies response in reacting to the real problem.
All heart disease and high blood pressure are the result of the bodies reaction to injuries of the blood vessels. The blood vessels can only respond to these multiple pathways of injury in one of 3 ways. 6 The blood vessels will respond with:
- Oxidative Stress
- Vascular Immune Dysfunction
All of these responses occur in the Arterial Wall.
Common Sense Approach
A more common sense approach would be to assess the 5 risk factors. Once the 5 risk factors are known, we can then address what has caused those risk factors to rise. These usually are related to lifestyle choices. Changing the right lifestyle choices could certainly prolong your life.
Our Unique Individual Care Program
We do not treat diseases, practice medicine, or promise cures. Instead, we combine several approaches to help support your body’s weaknesses. In doing so, the body can then strengthen itself to heal. Each person has a program tailored specific to them alone. Many times people in the same household will need an entirely different approach, even if they have what may seem to be the same issues.
All care needs to address the health of all of your body systems, including flora imbalances, damage to the gut wall, the toxins it creates, liver clearance of toxins, food intolerances, autoimmune responses, with thyroid and adrenal dysfunction included.
We use cost-effective natural ways of testing to find out where your individual weaknesses are. We evaluate every body system that you have, find out how all of your systems interact, and what the root cause of the weaknesses found.
Once we find out what the root cause of your weaknesses are, we then use the same testing procedures to find out how to address them. Since you are unique, your individual care program will probably be different from others that you know.
