The Proactive healthcare philosophy is to help people get back on track to using nutrition
as a tool to improving their health. As a culture, Americans have been misled by the food
industry and in the process, as a nation, have become unhealthy.
An average 40 year old American male is expected to have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, have erectile dysfunction and on top of all that be borderline diabetic. An average 40 year old female is expected to have a thyroid condition, experience pre menopausal symptoms and also be flirting with diabetes in addition to being 15 lbs over weight. If your health happens to fall into this pattern your doctor may very well tell you that this is perfectly normal. But don’t worry; the pharmaceutical industry is there with the proper drug therapy to help get you through the rest of your life.
My argument is that just because these issues represent the statistical norm it does not mean that they are normal. I believe that one of the main problems is the lack of a well rounded natural diet that provides the proper nutrients and chemicals that nature intends us to consume.
As a nation, we eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Many of us get our whole grains from instant rice, refined wheat breads, pastas, and cereal. We eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. One-quarter of Americans eat at least one meal at fast food restaurants each day. The average American diet consists of over 3000 calories per day and is comprised of too much bad fat, refined sugar and starch. The bottom line…..Americans are overfed and undernourished.
The Proactive Healthcare ApproachThe proactive approach to nutrition is not dieting, but a combination of eating correctly for your metabolism, whole food supplementation and lifestyle strategies designed to reconfigure and balance your personal biochemistry. In the process your body will heal, rejuvenate and changes will happen that will make your metabolic engine run more efficiently.
Through the process, people lose weight slowly and naturally, lower and balance their cholesterol levels, improve their metabolism, rejuvenate the way they choose and eat foods and overall improve their health and vitality.
The most successful off the shelf program is the 21 day purification program. This program is an easy way to begin making your body healthy while learning to develop better eating and snacking habits.
If you would like to get your system working better, or there is a pressing health issue at hand, or you would like to reduce a pharmaceutical drug dependency we can design a customized supplement plan to help you improve your overall health.
Because everyone is different, there is no set recovery period, everyone’s ailments and biochemistry are different. Sometimes we can achieve results in 3 months, sometimes 12- 15 months. The important thing is recognizing the problem and creating a plan to solve it.
What is the ProcessThe philosophy of this office is the simpler the better. The more complicated things are the greater the chance of failure. Therefore, the methodology used in this office is kept as simple as possible.
Nutrition strategies begin with a comprehensive 1.5 hour exam and consultation. During this visit we will go over your history(current blood panels, conditions, drugs, etc), perform a comprehensive symptom evaluation, draft a baseline of key health markers(body measurements, adrenal stress test, BMI indicators, reflex and strength tests), evaluate you against, food sensitivities, various pathogens and nutritional supplements(NRT) and take a hair sample for lab analysis(extra charge).
Combining all this information, we can narrow down a functional imbalance profile and draft a customized supplement regimen to support your specific needs. With this methodology we can apply a proactive approach to support your body’s weaknesses and/or imbalances. Another way of looking at it is applying a proactive healthcare model to managing your health and wellbeing.
Sometimes when people are dealing with slow metabolisms we may begin with a more comprehensive nutritional approach starting with one of five forms of cleansing and purification strategies. The 21 Day purification, The 42 Day purification, an intestinal purification, a liver/gall bladder flush or a kidney cleanse. Successful cleansing and detoxification programs can be instrumental in jump starting a person’s metabolic processes.
In addition to supplements the corner stone of all nutritional programs is to help people learn the importance of eating balanced and managing their blood sugar levels. Therefore people are put through stages of eating strategies to help them develop the proper eating habits for their body. There is no such thing as a diet. A diet is something a person starts and the stops. An eating strategy is just that, a guideline to follow every day.
In summary an outline of nutritional therapy is as such:
Evaluation Stage:Combining information from a pool of tests and background information from any of the following; Empirical tests (standard blood work up, nutrient profile blood work, hair analysis, gluten intolerance, adrenal stress test, skin fat analysis, BMI). Subjective tests (symptom surveys covering metabolic profiles/endocrine profiles/vitamin deficiency profiles, NRT, food and allergy sensitivities).
Report of Findings:Reviewing data from evaluation stage and developing a plan with the best chance of achieving success.
Treatment Stage:Applying whole food nutritional compounds, meridian therapy using cold laser technology, detoxifying or
cellular cleansing, specific dietary changes.
