Functional Wellness Therapy focuses on 3 main aspects of health to treat and prevent illness and disease: Nutrition, Behavior, and Rest/Recovery. These 3 components alongside a dedicated movement practice helps to build and maintain optimal health.
When looking at our health, we must first look at what we are putting into our body, aka nutrition. There are the old adages "you are what you eat" and "let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food". I like to think of health as "you are what you assimilate" meaning what your body actually absorbs and utilizes. From a nutrition aspect, we take an in-depth look into your food history, your symptoms and digestive complaints, toxicities, mineral levels, and much more. Once we gather a detailed report of how your body is processing food, we can build your own personal nutrition and supplement plan.
In a society where we are constantly moving to improve our status at work, in our communities, and at home, there is a huge component most people lack: Sleep. What most people don't realize is that our body regenerates while we sleep. So whether you are trying to recover from an injury, trying to make gains with your workouts, or trying to recover from an illness, your body won't fully recover unless you get proper rest. Our programming will help you to find ways to incorporate more rest into your schedule so that your healing time improves tremendously!
The final component we help to correct to achieve health is a behavior component. Working to achieve health takes times and commitment, and we will work with you to figure out what is holding you back from improving. Our thoughts towards ourselves and the world around us will determine the health of our body, so by utilizing positive influencing and calming/meditative practices, we can reduce stress from within and find a balance with our attitudes.
This is a one-on-one comprehensive program for the individual who is ready to make a change for better health and wellness. Change takes time and we want you to succeed. We will go on your health journey with you, guiding you and making adjustments to your plan as needed. We want to educate you on the different components of your plan, so you understand the significance behind the nutrients as to what they do for your body. We will do the research for you, then simplify the complexity for you to understand.
Please read below the process towards optimal health.
Step 1: An initial assessment takes place to have a baseline of your current health status. This entails a detailed symptom analysis that will highlight high priority areas to be addressed. In addition, you will be required to provide a detailed food log prior to the first visit to determine food recommendations based around foods you enjoy. During the first visit, any questions between the client and practitioner will be discussed, followed by an overall assessment of organ health. This will conclude our initial assessment process and allow us to build a plan based on your priorities.
Step 2: You will receive your personalized plan to review. We encourage you to look it over and write down any questions you may have about your plan. On our second visit, we will review your plan, go over your questions, and make any adjustments as needed. We will discuss the reasons behind the recommendations we have made to your plan.
Step 3: You will be asked to continue to journal what you have been eating, reactions your body has to certain foods, and overall how you feel. Please send these reports back to our office so we can continue to review and make adjustments accordingly. We will have follow-up appointments to re-test results from the initial assessment. Proper health and wellness is an on-going process; it is important to monitor all reactions and to adjust accordingly.
Your program will include:
Personalized Report of findings from your initial assessment.
Custom Individualized Plan which will include recommendations to reach your personal health goals. This includes nourishment recommendations, supplements (if necessary), and any lifestyle coaching.
