I am very passionate of THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE for what type of treatment you wish to have. I feel it is up to the individual person to educate themselves on what is out there. I am going to spend a lot of time in fighting for this with insurance companies as well as expressing the other ways to give you the quialty of life you deserve.
My mission is to give life to a bad situation by having you gain knowledge. There is no reason why in this day and age we not look at all the natural treatments that have been going on for many thousands of years. Please if you ever are in a situation where a doctor told you IT IS WHAT IT IS and this is the only why we can treat your problem ~ don't just give in RESEARCH. The internet is a great tool. There are alot of books out there in the market place that also are very helpful. I have started this blog to give some sense of direction in this scary world we are living in. I am not asking you to life in a bubble, but to think outside the box and do something about where we are going.
I have been going through a healing process for the past 10 months and through this process I have realized that it is a REAL BIG problem and people need to know about the condition we are to believe is right. Just look at the process foods we are eating. Do you know what it is made of ~ is it real or fake???

Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.
Functional Medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
There are seven basic principles underlying functional medicine which include the following:
- Science-based medicine that connects the emerging research base to clinical practice.
- Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness.
- Patient-centered care rather than disease-focused treatment.
- Dynamic balance of internal and external factors that affect total functioning.
- Web-like interconnections among the body's physiological processes also affect every aspect of functionality.
- Health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease.
