Are you spending all your time just managing your pain?
Perhaps you find yourself on one medication or even a number of medications. One for this illness or even heartburn, one for that symptom, yet another for that pain. You want to take fewer medications, or get off them completely, but it seems hopeless.
Do you find yourself in one of the following…
- You have a bad back. It’s fine for a while, but you find yourself at work on Monday morning and the few pills you started with no longer work.
- You struggle with your emotions. You have for years. Your doctor prescribed medications to help but you’re wondering if you will need to take them for the rest of your life. You believe there is a link between your nutrition and your emotions but you don’t know how to proceed.
- You joints ache, your digestion is slow, you have sugar cravings you don’t understand. You’re becoming hopeless and starting to wonder if you will ever get your life back.
- Perhaps the side effects and symptoms of your medications are causing havoc, although they are working to alleviate the original pain or issue, they keep you up, are causing constipation…or even affecting your ability to concentrate. You want to stop taking them…but you’re wondering what to do if the pain returns.
If you find yourself in one of the scenarios above, or one that is similar, or if you just find yourself struggling with pain…
This is what I know to be universally true when it comes to Drug free pain relief.
CORE PRINCIPLES THAT DEFINE FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS:
BIO – INDIVIDUALITY:
Functional Wellness views us all as biochemically unique. This approach supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. My personalized approach treats the individual, not the disease. There is no “one size fits all” approach to health and wellness.
AWARENESS OF CURRENT HABITS/PATTERNS:
We work together to identify your current lifestyle barriers to wellness. The power of this therapeutic partnership is based on the fact that you, the patient, are an active participant in the development of the therapeutic plan. You make the sustained lifestyle changes that improve your health and wellness.
FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS IS SCIENCE BASED:
What we put in our bodies, what we do with our bodies and what happens within us is connected in a complicated network of relationships. We work to understand those relationships so we can see the dynamic functioning of the body.
BODY’S ABILITY TO HEAL ITSELF:
Your body is intelligent and capable of profound self-regulation. This ability is expressed through a dynamic balance of all your body systems. We are an intricate biodynamic system that contains incredible feedback mechanisms. Together we focus on maximizing that ability by enhancing your vitality.
WELLNESS IS A LIFE LONG JOURNEY:
Health and wellness is not just the absence of disease, it is a state of vitality. Functional Wellness looks to find the root causes or mechanisms involved in any loss of function (heartburn, chronic body pain, migraines, digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, grief to name a few). It utilizes an “upstream” approach to consider the complex web of interrelations in your life, including the internal and external factors that affect total function or vitality. This unique approach makes that journey easier to travel.
