Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a patient-focused partnership in which we dig deep to determine the root cause of illness and create a holistic, personalized plan of care. Beginning with an examination of the patient’s unique history, I take into account factors such as lifestyle, habits, environmental and emotional stressors, and use this information to create a health-enhancing, natural medicine plan.

Under the umbrella of Functional Medicine, I also offer the following modalities:

Allergy Desensitization

Allergy elimination works through the use of acupressure, kinesiology, and specific breathing patterns to engage the limbic system. This process works to reset the immune response to allergens. People have the ability to develop sensitivities that express as physical symptoms, such as an allergy, which are actually rooted in an emotional trigger. This approach can engage that trigger and provide resolution to alleviate the surface symptom.

Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)

Nutrition Response Testing uses muscle testing or applied kinesiology in order to determine whether there is an imbalance in the organs, glands, or tissues of the body. This is most often accomplished by testing an extended arm while I contact different access points in the body which correspond to particular reflexes. Organs or parts of the body which have a deficit express that through reduced energy, which causes the arm to weaken against the testing. I identify these areas and determine remedies which offer the support needed to bring the body back to a healthy state.
