Attention: If you are looking for a different approach to improving your health
that provides an understanding of "why" you have
any condition,
and a personalized road map toward TRUE HEALTH...
Integrated Natural Medicine

Integrated means "combining or coordinating separate elements so as to provide a harmonious,
interrelated whole."  

Natural needs no introduction, although with the direction of medicine, a reintroduction may be in means of nature, and implies working in harmony with natural laws.  The basic natural laws of
natural health include healing only comes from within, requires extra nutritional support, and is
accelerated with natures amazing healing plants.  

Medicine is defined as the art and science of restoring or preserving health and physical condition.

The integration is of all things considered natural...hands on body work, herbs, supplements, diet,
movement, posture, balance, strength, acupressure, laser therapy...and I'm sure you could think of
more, but this represents the main natural tools our clinic utilizes to restore health.

We also integrate a variety of diagnostic techniques. Eastern medicine "reads" the signs and
symptoms of the body. Applied Kinesiology "reads" the function and balance of muscles. Muscle
testing is actually a neurological is not a test for weakness or a lack of conditioning.
Therefore, muscle testing is a window to neurological function, and neurological systems are the basis
of Regulation.

The final diagnostic assessment is the only "natural" part of mainstream medicine...the process of
looking at naturally occurring chemicals, hormones, and other elements via lab testing.  And, yes, it is
quite natural to look inside and notice what is there.

The Key to Healing

The practice of Medicine is much safer when you start with a glowing respect for internal healing and
health management functions. I call this healing system, that coordinates everything from vital
functions (heart pumping, breathing) to intricate responses to our environment (sweating, muscle
coordination), "Regulation."

If you are spiritual or religious, you might think of Regulation as the internal wisdom of our creator.  If
you are analytical and scientific, you might think of Regulation as the central nervous system, and it’s
interactions with all the cells of your body.  

Whatever your preference, it is easy to see that something special breathes life into our bodies,
coordinating multitudes of functions, including turning an apple into energy, and a bean into kidney
cells.  It is also easy to see the cooperative and integrated relationship that Regulation has with
Nature.  When we eat whole foods as prepared by nature, our health and energy normally flourish,
and when we eat processed foods, made or altered by man and machines, our health and energy

It leads to the question I pose as the title of my first book, “When did natural become the alternative?”

I contend that Regulation never makes a mistake.  Every adjustment and adaptation made within your
body, ordered by Regulation, is a shift that will increase Regulation’s primary objective…survival.  
When you feel awful during a cold or flu, that is regulation calling into action an intricate immune
system to restore health.  In fact, every symptom is a signal that Regulation is shifting from balance to
adapt to a stressful situation.  Every symptom is a message from Regulation that something is wrong.  

A natural response would be to work with Regulation to help right that wrong.  When regulation
causes you to feel dizzy or nauseous when you skip breakfast, working with Regulation would look like
grabbing some fruit and nuts and providing the raw material Regulation uses to create energy.  

Most people get it, and work with Regulation in that example.  But when a headache or heart burn is
experienced (or any symptom), instead of working with Regulation, we suppress the symptoms with
medication.  We actually block the message of Regulation!

I’m not suggesting that there is no use for symptom suppressing medications.  In fact, I would take an
advil for a terrible headache…and I would inquire as to why that headache occurred.  The most
common causes of headaches are stress and physical imbalance causing muscle tension.  Working
with Regulation could include taking some Passion Flower, one of my favorite plants, and checking for
muscle injury or strain.  

There is a perfect “working with Regulation” response for every symptom.
