The time is come. Take back your power. Understand the root cause of illness.

 

Painful ageing, dysfunction and breakdown are NOT inevitable parts of life. When there is loss of function (which can come on slowly or quickly as in injury) and it lingers, premature ageing and chronic conditions result.

Return to more normal and natural function. Learn what to avoid and what to enhance to take charge of your health and well-being. Actually feel younger than you knew you could again.

 

To reduce or eliminate pain and fatigue expect to

  • make a commitment of approximately 6 weeks.
  • take a multi-pronged approach, not a serial or piece meal dabble in “this or that”
  • learn best by inviting a sense of joyful inquiry, curious and active commitment. This attitude invites a learning brain environment

Here are some of the best scientific resources I have found on FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE at this time. Each of them deserves a deeper look.

As your health advocate, I will likely recommend specific ones based on your status at the time of our evaluation.

 

ALIGNMENT AWARENESS

Move WITH Nature’s design and you will move and function in a way that reduces chronic stress in joints and your organs.

My custom orthotics -Maximal Arch Gait Integrated Casting shoe inserts- are a valuable tool for walking reminders to align in every step. Also, learn to improve your prolonged sitting and sleeping postures for body ease.

 

DIET

The single most powerful tool you use EVERY DAY. You can significantly reduce inflammation if you consistently provide your body the complete life chemistry it requires for healing.

Biggest culprits for chronic inflammation in your daily diet are:

  • grains (all of them), yes, even the whole grains
  • sugars and all sweeteners
  • food additives (like those in ALL processed foods)
  • Plastic packaging exposure
  • Not enough good oils and fats

 

TOXICITY

Today we are surrounded by serious and persistent toxins. EVERYONE IS AFFECTED. Period. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat today are ALL compromised.

When our systems are more taxed, we are more affected by the toxins around us because we are less able to cope, less resilient. If we build resilience we are healthier overall and better resist the effects of “normal” toxin overload.

 

LIFESTYLE

Your way of being in the world is more influential than you may know. Your self-care practices, healthy sleep habits, relationships and, in a big way, your perception of what happens to you is one of the most important factors in how your biochemical body reacts to daily stressors.

I am deeply committed to health advocacy and grateful to be part of your healing journey. Do not hesitate to call on me if I can be of further assistance.
