How can we help?

Inflammation is often caused by food allergies and intolerances. Lab tests help us pinpoint your inflammatory triggers to determine whether it is gluten, soy, dairy or a number of other common allergies.

We can start you on an elimination diet to rid your system of the symptoms, while using targeted supplementation to address Leaky Gut Syndrome which is often the source of the problem. By removing food sensitivities and addressing leaky gut, we can restore healthy gut function dramatically reducing inflammation throughout the body.
The brain is the vehicle through which we experience life and is the conduit for consciousness itself. To truly fulfill potential and access our most authentic state, the brain must be finely tuned.

Physical injuries and traumas (including concussions), acute and chronic mental emotional stress, and even chemical toxicity give rise to neuroinflammation leading to decreased memory, anxiety, depression, poor focus and concentration, ADD and ADHD, and even more advanced neurological conditions including autism, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and dementia.

Through lifestyle modification and targeted nutritional supplementation neuroinflammation can be decreased truly unlocking your highest potential.ding
Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) as a result of exposure to mold and water damaged homes or buildings is a devastating illness that can destroy lives.  

Every year millions of people experiencing brain fog, severe fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and more, see countless doctors only to be given labels including chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, or worse, being told everything is normal or “it’s all in your head.”  
Blood Sugar Imbalance is a major health issue. Nearly 50% of Americans are prediabetic, with 10% developing full blown diabetes. Further, blood sugar dysregulation leads to weight gain, hormone disruption, increased cholesterol levels, greater likelihood of heart attack and stroke, and even has been linked to Alzheimer's and dementia.

Utilizing a high fat ketogenic diet in combination with specific blood sugar support, we can dramatically impact blood sugar issues whether hyper or hypoglycemic in nature.
