Root Cause Integrative Services:

one-on-one

I was really frustrated a couple of years ago. Seemingly doing everything ‘right’ and still having hormone and gut issues that were affecting my daily life. It wasn’t until I dug a little deeper and took time to heal the root issue that I truly felt that level of health that I’d been looking to achieve. To show up fully every day- with energy and clarity of mind.

I’ve never wanted to stop at putting a bandaid on any situation. It’s not effective nor long-lasting. That strong pull is one of the main reasons I wanted to find another way to help others, rather than just continue to fill their prescriptions as a Pharmacist. And to this day I continue that pursuit.

There are actually several ‘natural bandaids’ or pit stops that would have been easy to stop at, but that same pull came back and so I dug deeper. My training as an Integrative Health Practitioner was exactly what I was looking for to help me go deeper into understanding why symptoms happen and how we can address them.

What is a root cause integrative approach?

Looking at each person as a whole, treating the person, not just the lab results + looking to be efficient and effective (in time, finances and energy spent)  in the plan.  My approach includes identifying stressors, toxicities, and deficiencies + addressing detoxification pathways, imbalances, and gut health.

I know you’ve tried so many other things in the past, how is this different?

-a super in-depth look into where you are, what has worked/ hasn’t worked, and what your biggest pain points are right now that we can work on first.  We will look at things like diet(what you eat and when) exercise, supplements, sleep/wake times, and stressors (lifestyle/physical/emotional).

-an initial plan that is doable, yet impactful. As we wait on hair and blood work to come in we will be able to get started and then tweak the initial plan. I’m going to meet you where you are and we will get started right away.

-create a personalized roadmap to address symptoms from an upstream perspective for long-lasting results that allow the body to work as it was intended.

-along the way I help you to understand the why and how vs just telling you to do this/ don’t do that.

-the goal is to limit or eliminate sensitivities- so you can have food freedom vs feeling like you must  100% stick to certain foods to feel good.  Expanding diet and eating food that has previously been labeled bad or that you are sensitive to currently is the plan.

No more guessing. No fitting into a box. No restrictive diets. No more jumping from protocol to protocol. It has been a long cycle of products, protocols, diets, etc. and it’s time to close the loop for good.

Why is running functional lab work beneficial? 

Once you’ve worked on building up your health foundation, we will decide which labs, are best for you to proceed. There may be things going on underneath the surface that will compromise your foundation. Instead of guessing, we know exactly what is going on to give you a specific protocol.

I always address individual concerns while looking at the entire picture. Labs are such a valuable piece of information, but if they aren’t the best place to start I will tell you that. If you’d like to discuss that prior to deciding what is best for you, fill out the form below and I’ll be in touch soon!

Which labs are available?

Dutch Complete Hormone Test

The Dutch Hormone test is a comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites. This test is easy to complete, using 4-5 dried urine samples over a 24 hour period.  This method gives us the most accurate picture of stress and hormone levels! 

Organic Acids Test (OAT)

This test provides an accurate metabolic snapshot of what is going on in the body. Besides offering the most complete and accurate evaluation of intestinal yeast, mold and bacteria, it also provides information on important neurotransmitters, nutritional markers, glutathione status, oxalate metabolism, and much more. The test includes 76 urinary metabolite markers that can be very useful for discovering underlying causes of chronic illness.

 

GI Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP)

The GI Map is a DNA-based stool test that provides a detailed analysis of the gastrointestinal microbiome using a stool sample. It provides a closer look at the gut- normal bacteria, pathogenic bacteria, parasites, fungi, h.pylori, viruses, intestinal health markers.  This particular test gives you a complete picture of your GI microbiome in a unique way! 

Hair Mineral Tissue Analysis

A simple hair test that will give you  3 months of data on very important minerals such as magnesium & potassium which are intercellular won’t have accurate results on urine or blood because only %1 is outside the cell. Everything else is in the cell which goes to the tissues (hair). 

I recommend and run this on all of my clients to get a baseline then I can make personalized diet changes and supplements to fit their unique needs.
