Our Comprehensive Approach to Health and Recovery
Clients often come to us wondering why they aren’t succeeding in their attempts at wellness. Many have seen specialists, taken prescription medications and/or undergone surgery, but aren’t able to heal completely and still do not feel well.
Wellness is achieved when the symptoms, as well as the root of an issue, are both addressed. We take the time to understand all of the contributing factors that are causing the imbalance. This is where a big picture perspective that integrative medicine provides can make such a difference.
We call upon a wide range of training and experience to support our clients’ recovery from illness, injury and/or surgery. Clients come to see us for a variety of reasons that include:
- Cognitive health (prevention and recovery from Alzheimer’s, stroke, concussion, MS, etc.)
- Emotional support (individual, couples and family therapy)
- Improvement from sleeping disorders
- Recovery from inflammation/autoimmunity-related illnesses
- Nutritional optimization
- Holistic guidance for diabetes recovery
Specializing in Cognitive Health
When it comes to supporting the needs of older adults, nothing is more important than brain health. We have had truly outstanding results by combining various highly effective physical and emotional processes with affordable cutting-edge technology that can be used at home.
Recent innovations in this field are transforming what is possible. Unfortunately, because it can sound too good to be true, these innovations may not be taken seriously enough. We can site the research and have seen the extraordinary results with our own eyes. Our primary role is to help you understand what is possible and to support you through your recovery.
The key is to address each of the contributing imbalances that are the actual cause of a complex illness. We support clients who have issues such as:
- Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
- Neurological/Autoimmune related illnesses including Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis
Our Experience and Training
- Clinical counseling (individual, couples, and families)
- Energy psychology
- Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions
- Lifestyle coaching
Our formal education has been in Canada and the United States but also includes graduate studies and courses that we have completed in Mexico, Guatemala and Ecuador. We also integrate the work of leaders in specific fields of health to make our approach as effective and current as possible.
Taking the Time to Figure Out What Exactly is Happening
For clients experiencing more challenging circumstances, we recommend a more thorough analysis. This is especially important if there are a number of health issues or a lot has been tried already and nothing has worked to date.
Comprehensive Blood Analysis Report: This is an inclusive report based on your initial consultation and other diagnostics, including blood. We take as much time as necessary to understand what is happening to your health. Our report educates you on your current state of health, how you got there, and what you can do to recover.
At the core of this information is an “optimal interpretation” or what some call a functional interpretation of a recent blood test/s.
All blood test results use and include reference ranges on the right side of your results (for comparison). Unfortunately, the reference range is only designed to see if you are in a disease state or not. If you are on a path toward a specific imbalance, reference ranges will not detect this, nor will they identify potential remedies to halt or reverse this direction.
By contrast, optimal interpretation of blood is prognostic and prevention oriented. Pioneered by Scott Ferguson ND and Dicken Weatherby ND, this way of decoding blood test results provides explicit details about each blood constituent that is out of range, what that means, and the most appropriate interventions to support recovery.
If you have an existing blood test, we may give you a recommendation for some additional testing. The report contextualizes your results in a framework of known pathology as well as the optimal recovery protocols that we know through experience to be the best course of action. If you are on prescription medications, the report includes a contra-indication medication report.
