As an Integrative Health Practitioner, I have learned to draw from seven different disciplines to help bring the body back to homeostasis.
The seven disciplines are:
Chinese Medicine and Herbalism
When we don’t know what is going on, we don’t know how to fix it. In order to heal, we need to remove the thorn. By pulling from the above seven disciplines, we can begin to discover the root cause of why you got where you got, and then I can teach you the steps to put your body into the position to heal itself.
Could you have candida, h- pylori, estrogen dominance, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, unhealthy Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratios, sub clinical thyroid issues, weakened adrenal function, heavy metal toxicities and how would you even know?
You have to replace the deficiencies and remove the toxicities and at the same time, remember that we are all bio-individual and so although we all need to nourish our bodies at the foundational level, every “body” works slightly differently. Similarly, our lifestyle, body type, toxin exposure, exercise routine and emotional state all interplay to bring us to our current health state.
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE TESTS
In order to remove much of the guesswork I offer clients a variety of Functional Medicine Lab Tests that can give you definitive answers to where imbalances lie because they tell you what is going on on the inside of the body.
There is no guesswork:
Do I have a parasite? Yes or No
Do I have candida/ yeast overgrowth? Yes or No
Am I deficient in vitamin C? Yes or No
Do I have excess heavy metals in my body? Yes or No?
Are my Omega 3 levels at a healthy ratio? Yes or No
Are my zinc levels in balance? Yes or No
These questions and countless more will be answered when running functional lab tests. These kits are easy to use, and can be run at home through your saliva, urine, blood or stool. Return shipping label is included and no medical permission is required.
