Our Approach at The Center For Health and Wellness
Functional Medicine - Providing Natural Solutions
I apply the principles of Functional Medicine that is a drug-less, science based assessment that offers natural solutions and protocols to assist you in restoring health and maintaining overall mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
I stress that although we may be working alongside mainstream conventional doctors, we are a drug-less practice that is embraced by Pastoral Science and Medicine PSM as licensed by the Pastoral Medical Association PMA and not to be confused with the American Medical Association AMA
We are not licensed by any medical state agency and we do not hold any conventional medical degrees. So if you are seeking drugs to treat your disease or seeking a diagnosis or treatment for your symptoms please seek a medical doctor.
Hallmarks of a Skilled Practitioner
Personalized Healthcare. Genuinely personalized healthcare does not involve one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter approaches to restoration of health. You and your journey in life to this point in time have been unique. While your path of recovery may have similarities to those struggling with the same conditions, it is likely that your return to robust health and wellness will have its own unique twists and turns. Accordingly, the services you receive will focus on your individual situation and restoring your health as a positive vitality, beyond just alleviating symptoms of poor health.
Planning for Success. We will take the time to understand your health concerns, evaluate whether our services are right for you and, if so, inform you about the proposed services, their projected cost, and what you can reasonably expect to gain as a client. If you choose to proceed, we will sign a written agreement with you that assures you are entering into a professional relationship.
A Holistic Approach. In addressing your health issues, we will consider the complex web of interactions presented by your personal background, unique physiology and lifestyle that contribute to your chronic illness. Both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environmental) factors affecting how your total system is functioning are taken into account. By listening to you and learning your history, present situation, and lifestyle, we will engage you in the discovery process to identify the root causes of your symptoms, and suggest strategies we would use in your position to restore functional balance, promote natural healing and regain optimal health.
It is important to remember, however, that your chronic illness did not occur from one day to the next; and it is unreasonable to expect you can regain your health overnight. To the contrary, your willingness to make significant lifestyle changes, probably including diet and exercise, and to pursue other natural protocols we may suggest to you, will be a major factor in your recovery and how long it takes for your to return to a state of vibrant health and well-being.
