Functional Medicine is the new and emerging field of medicine that looks for the true cause of health problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms. The traditonal health model falls short in offering answers to most chronic health concerns while functional medicine shines. It is especially effective for hormone issues, autoimmune and gut health.
A health care specialty focused on the assessment, quantification, and rehabilitation of the human nervous system, utilizing sensory and cognitive based therapies, to promote neuroplasticity, integrity, and functional optimization. We use these methods in the treatment of brain injury, cognitive decline, mood disorders and neuropathy.
Using the latest clinical knowledge from a Functional Medicine standpoint and Applied Kinesiology, we are able to assess organ and body dysfunction. We use supplements, lifestyle changes and our other modalities to help restore the health of these systems.
Weight concerns almost alway have a metabolic imbalance involved. The most common conditions are blood sugar imbalances, accumulated stress, toxins, inflammation, and hormones. Using all our tools we can help people find the causes of weight gain and rebalance the metabolism. In addition, we use Low Level Laser Therapy (also call Red Light Therapy or Photobiomodulation) to facilitate fat loss. Once a person has accumulated fat, it can be very difficult to get the body to release it. Red Light Therapy is so exciting because it does just that, cause the body to release stored fat! Treatment is painless and there is not down time. For more info click here.
We find lab testing to be quite useful in assessing one's health.You may have been told your blood work looks normal and that's because there are not obvious diseases manifesting. However when looked at from a Functional Medicine standpoint there may be many signs of problems developing and needing attention before they become bigger problems that would require medical intervention. If you have had any lab work done in the past year, please get those to our office before you appointment. Our fax is 208-874-4300. We can also order any indicated tests such as thyroid, hormones, cardiology, immune system, food sensitivities and general metabolic profiles.
Often, there are muscle or nerve imbalances that affect joints, preventing them from healing or causing degeneration. Dr. Maria will use muscle testing and other unique diagnostic tests to discover the cause of Musculoskeletal problems. Kinesio Taping, as often seen in the Olympics, is one effective method used to balance injured soft tissue. Applied Kinesiology is another technique that can be very effective for acute injury, chronic pain and post surgery healing. For Knees we are very excited about our knee decompression machine. After just one session people experience pain relief from old injuries, arthritis and more. Try this before you consider knee replacement. Watch the video below to see the machine in action.
Many people today suffer with mild to severe depression, poor mental processing, brain fog, memory issues, insomnia, learning problems or are injury prone. Dr. Maria uses principles of Functional Neurology to asses the overall health of the brain and design a brain rehabilitation program. See the Brain Wellness tab for more info.
Allergy Testing and Desensitizing
Whether you suffer from environmental, chemical or food allergies we can help! No needles, no drugs. We get at least a 50% reduction of symptoms but often it's 100% after just a few treatments.
