Keeping your body in optimal condition is a difficult task. There are stressors, injuries, toxic chemicals, and genetic issues that put our systems out of balance. If we ignore symptoms as they occur, they will eventually escalate and turn into disease – sometimes diseases that cannot be cured or reversed.
At Natural Foundations Healing Center, we combine the approach of Functional Medicine with Autonomic Response Testing, an organ reflex-based analysis, in order to determine the exact nutrients your body needs to reestablish balance and restore health. We focus on two key components: the analysis and the creation of a personalized health program that is specific to your body and your needs.
How does Functional Medicine work?
Functional Medicine is a very precise and scientific analysis of the body’s systems. Rather than just treat symptoms, it focuses on healing the root cause of dis-ease. It is a comprehensive approach to healing, allowing us to discover and correct the source of health issues so that the body can regain its ability to correct itself.
The use of the word function is the key. We measure the function of the organs and systems of your body and use nutrition and other natural treatments to promote the optimal functioning of your organs and systems. Our goal is to identify organs and systems that are not performing well, treat them naturally, and prevent them from degenerating to the point of dysfunction or disease.
Functional Medicine Testing
We measure through blood, urine, saliva, hair analysis, and muscle response testing in our office to determine the function and health of specific organs and systems. In this way, we can stop the progression toward disease in its tracks.
The comprehensive analysis is done through lab testing to look at biochemical imbalances and also through reflex testing to assess your body’s neurological reflexes and acupuncture points. The neurological reflexes are derived from the part of the nervous system that regulates the functions of each and every organ.
Your Personalized Health Program
When your testing is complete, we create a customized program that will help to restore balance and optimal functioning to your body on every level. Using nutritional medicine, we might make dietary suggestions and prescribe herbs, potent oils, and supplements. We might also suggest massage or chiropractic treatment for a full restoration of balanced health.
