The Right Choice for Everybody
The Right Choice for Everybody!
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, most of us realize that disease rates are on the rise, not just in adults, but in our kiddos too. We are seeing more and more autoimmune issues, higher cancer rates, pain syndromes, crippling fatigue and brain fog, diabetes, dementia, depression, anxiety, infertility, and hormone imbalances that significantly affect quality and quantity of life. We are seeing kids with eczema, fatigue, headaches, irritable bowels and belly aching, food allergies, developmental delays, and even a high frequency of kids being diagnosed with depression, and attention disorders.
Why are these conditions surging at alarming rates???
How is this addressed in your typical health care appointment???
Modern medicine should be expressing more concern about the WHYs, and not just focusing on symptom management. We currently have a system that gives pills and offers surgeries with not much, if any, emphasis given to finding and treating the underlying factors that are keeping people from being well.
You may be ‘managing’ for years and be seemingly ‘fine’ while things are gradually building up behind the scenes in your body, then all of a sudden…. CRASH! Your system (ie your body) tips and you don’t bounce back the same. You can’t quite regain feeling as well as you would like to, and now you are in a rut that no amount of medicine can pull you out of. Trust us, we see all the meds people try to feel better, ADHD meds, multiple anti-depressants, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories. You feel crappy, your vibrancy is gone, and while you know that you have more potential, you don’t know how to get to feeling better. The internet is overwhelming, and your health care provider only has time to give you another pill.
Here at Mint Health , helping you to become healthier and providing you with the tools to use for yourself and your family, brings us so much satisfaction, because we know how bad things can be health-wise, and we also know how powerful making a few changes can be in helping you to restore health. We love to teach people to be more in tune with their bodies, and to learn that symptoms are actually signs that something within you is out of balance. Nothing in your body or about your body is supposed to make you feel terrible! We are all unique, and sometimes health situations can be very complex with lots of different variables to consider (‘pieces of the puzzle’), so most people greatly benefit from working with experienced practitioners like us, where we can customize treatments to address your individual underlying issues.
When you embark on the journey of Functional Medicine , we help you to become equipped with the tools to bring healing to the damaged areas of your body, and also teach you ways to stay healthy, for you and for your family! We often see reversal of disease, and we ALMOST ALWAYS see people feeling better and lab markers getting better, and sometimes these changes are very evident just in a few short months.
At Mint Health , we have the ability to do comprehensive testing that looks at oxidative stress and free radical damage in the body, impaired detox, imbalanced gut, detailed hormone testing (stress hormones, sex hormones, and thyroid hormones), food allergy testing, and checking nutrient levels for abnormalities in macro nutrients like fats and proteins and micro nutrients like your vitamins and minerals. All of these components are important in helping you to have a vibrant, healthy life!!
