You will hear us say: “We don’t treat the disease, we treat the patient. We help restore their own body’s ability to heal naturally, from whatever it is they are struggling with.”
Your body is and amazingly complex and fine-tuned organism. It coordinates and processes countless inputs and responses every day. There are approximately 37.2 trillion cells in your body, 10 times as many microbial cells in your body than your own human cells, and 100 billion neurons. It’s staggering to imagine, and devastating when things go awry.
To help patient achieve optimal health and to naturally support healing, we focus on supporting and balancing the natural functions in your body that afford you wellbeing: detox, hormones, digestion, absorption and assimilation, communication (between cells, organs, and the nervous system), energy balance, genetic responses. We do this through functional medicine (a systems based approach focusing on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease) and upper cervical chiropractic care (looking to restore optimal autonomic and nervous system function to allow the body to orchestrate its own healing). We are in the business of restore health not just treating disease or symptoms.
Functional Medicine, Getting to the Root Cause
Functional medicine is a holistic approach that employs a systems-oriented medical approach used to identify and understand the underlying or root causes of disease or less than optimal health. Functional medicine treats the individual not the disease and in doing so empowers patients to make lifestyle and other changes that offer health benefits for life.
Lifestyle habits, patient’s genetic information, biochemistry, and environmental exposures are gathered to gain a deeper understanding of our patient’s health status. When we fully see the biochemical individuality of our patients we can find the underlying causes of disease and aid in the prevention of additional health risks in the future. When your health care is individualized and personalized your health will be transformed.
Upper Cervical Care, Optimize Whole Body Function
Your nervous system (the main communication network of your body) receives and transmits information from everywhere in your body: your brain, organs, cells (even your immune cells), joints, muscles, skin, gut, eyes, etc. In order to do this effectively, efficiently, and integrate all of this information, your central nervous system (the main highway of information) needs to be unimpeded.
For patients with chronic pain, we often see that their body is sacrificing structure (muscle, ligaments, and bones) to preserve function. Because to your nervous system breathing, heart function, digestion, and communication is a greater priority than their sore neck.
Upper cervical care is focused on restoring optimal nervous system function to allow your body to stop compensating and begin healing. Just like a car needing a tune-up, just changing the oil and putting gas in your care won’t fix the problem. You need an engine tune-up. We help tune-up your nervous system so your body can heal with our support along the way.
