What to Expect?

Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that healthcare is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and healthcare addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. 

Phase 1: remove the cause

My protocol for each client begins by determining which sources of stress are causing body-wide damage and removing them as soon as possible. Phase 1 is removing the toxic source that has accumulated over time in the body; it’s truly what Detox is all about. I would have never recovered my health had I not removed my sources. Most allopathic doctors cover symptoms with medications while alternative practitioners do the same with supplements. Neither approach gets people truly well. Getting “knee to knee” with clients and digging deep into their health history is key to figuring out what caused the sickness. Toxic stressors quickly shut down detox pathways and allow other toxins to bio-accumulate. These typically include the three major culprits: biotoxins from mold and Lyme disease, infections, and heavy metals like lead and mercury.

Phase 2: reduce inflammation

Systemic cellular inflammation is driving the epidemic of chronic diseases and hormone conditions so pervasive in our culture today. Specifically, I am referring to inflammation of the cell membrane that affects the way the cell communicates, detoxes and ultimately changes gene expression, which can trigger a disease of genetic weakness. Understanding how inflammation affects the cell and how to downregulate it is essential to get almost any condition well. Unfortunately, most health practitioners are not keeping up with the exciting research in the area of inflammation, detox, or gene expression, which would dramatically change their clients’ results. Top sources of inflammation include dietary sugars and grains, bad or rancid fats, biotoxins, and toxins from mercury fillings, GMOs and others.

Phase 3: Restore the bodies true nature

Methylation is a biochemical process that affects many essential body functions including DNA repair, detoxification, fighting infections, removing environmental toxins such as lead and estrogen, and more processes we’re only beginning to understand. The body needs methylation to regulate stress hormones, and when unable to methylate remains in a state of constant stress. Methyl groups are needed to turn on the stress response, but they are also needed to turn it off. Therefore, if methyl groups are lacking, a greater opportunity is created for toxins, inflammation, and other stressors to trigger bad genes. A toxic diet, lifestyle and various stressors (whether chemical, physical, or emotional) can turn on bad genes by depleting methylation. On the other hand, a healthy lifestyle, clean diet and environment, and properly restored methylation can turn off a bad gene. Hence, our DNA is no longer our destiny.
