functional-medicine-santa-cruzDo you want to achieve whole body health and wellness? Functional medicine might be the key. Functional medicine focuses on healing the root causes of disease by ensuring that you have the nutrients you need for optimal health.

How Do I Know What Nutrients My Body Needs?

An essential part of functional medicine is addressing your body’s nutrient needs to restore balance and harmony to the body. At Natural Foundations Wellness & Aesthetics we combine functional medicine with Autonomic Response Testing (an organ based reflex analysis) to determine your specific needs and to create your unique treatment plan. We measure the function of your various organs and systems, identify weaknesses and problems, and treat them naturally to prevent degeneration to the point of dysfunction or disease.

We use a variety of testing methods including blood, urine, saliva, hair analysis, and muscle response testing. This gives us valuable information about the status of your body and allows us to create a unique treatment plan that focuses on your needs.

What Can I Expect from Treatment?

After your testing is complete we create a unique treatment plan to restore balance to your body. Depending on your needs we may offer dietary suggestions, recommend herbs, potent oils, and supplements, or suggest massage and chiropractic care. We’ll continue to work with you as you restore health and vitality to your body.

Every patient is different and functional medicine focuses on healing from within. We’ll work with you to help you feel better and to avoid health problems before they start.
