Does your healthcare meet your needs?
You are unique physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Physically, you are unique in terms of your body’s specific deficiencies, toxicities, harmful microorganisms, environment, DNA, and more. Your wellness plan needs to be equally unique. Most doctors use a “one-size-fits-all” approach to healthcare so they can fit more patients into their schedule. This is highly efficient and works very well in emergency trauma care. But is this an effective strategy for promoting your general health?
According to the World Health Organization, the United States spends more per person in health care than any other nation in the world, yet the latest World Health Organization data (as of 2020) ranks the USA 69th in healthy life expectancy1. Healthy Life Expectancy is defined as the average number of years a person can expect to live in “full health”. You can be on 15 medications and still be living in “full health” according to their statistics. And, the US takes more pharmaceutical drugs per capita than any other nation, so this would not meet my definition of full health. But even with this watered-down definition, we are still 69th in the world. Does this shock you. I hope so. It’s a shock to most Americans that we are ranked so low. But we’ve been in a decline for decades. This data suggests that the healthcare model the U.S. uses for general health is not working. If you are not willing to settle for 69th best for your family’s health, then you need to be doing things different than the average American.
Most family practice doctors are seeing between 20 and 40 patients per day. At that rate, it’s all but impossible for your doctor to get to know the specifics of your body.
During your initial consult with me, I spend about 2 hours asking very detailed questions about your symptomology. Depending on what I find, I may do one or more of several other tests – several blood test panels, a Biomagnetic Scan of 355 different places on your body searching for harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi; hair analysis; a Bio-impedance Analysis (a measure of your cellular health and body composition); several pages of self-assessment questions; Et Al. After this 2-hour appointment ends, I typically spend about 6 to 8 more hours combining all of this data to develop your customized plan.
Individualized care is not just a healthful benefit – it is a necessity.
Assessing your body's needs
Before we can help your body meet its needs we need to assess what your body’s needs are. What are your nutritional deficiencies? What are your toxicities? What organ systems are functioning at a reduced rate? What mineral ratios are out of balance? In what order should we support your body to minimize healing responses? To answer these questions we will use… Read More
Supplying your body's needs
Once we have assessed your body’s needs and put together a plan for the order in which we will address those needs, how do we actually meet those needs? We will use several tools, but the most effective tools we will use are… Read More
