During new patient Initial Consults, we identify which of the 6 barriers to healing a person may have. Then, we support your body to remove them with Functional Nutrition. Once the barriers are addressed, healing happens, naturally. 

Find the cause. Fix it. 

What are the barriers?

Simply put:
1. Scars
2. Heavy metals
3. Chemicals
4. Biotoxins
5. Food sensitivities & allergies
6. Nutrient deficiency

how do we identify which barriers are preventing you from healing?

We use non-invasive methods of muscle response testing and/or lab tests to uncover which barriers to healing your body must address first. To order labs to test yourself right in the comfort of your own home, visit our online lab test store HERE where lab kits will arrive to your doorstep within 3-4 days.  


During our initial intake, we’ll assess which scars lie along a meridian and is impeding flow of qi. Once we identify which scars require healing support, we’ll determine which cold-pressed oils must be rubbed into them daily. We’ll assess along the way their effectiveness. We may even recommend cold laser therapy to support the process. More information on scars can be found here

Heavy metals

We asborb heavy metals come from our food, water, air and substances we apply topically. Here are the common heavy metals known to cause health issues in humans:

Aluminum, Americium, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Beryllium, Bromine, Cadmium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Cyanide, Gold, Iron, Lead, Lithium, Manganese, Mercury, Nickel, Platinum, Plutonium, Polonium, Radium, Silver, Strontium, Thallium, Thorium, Tin, Titanium, Uranium, Valadium, Zinc


We asborb heavy metals come from our food, water, air and substances we apply topically. Here are the common ones that cause issues:

Acetates, alcohols, asbestos, benzene, BPA, PCB’s, chemical additives, chlorine, chloramines, chloroform, cosmetics, dioxins, pthalates, fluoride, food dyes and colors, synthetic hormones, formaldehyde, synthetic fragrances, fuels, hydrocarbons, personal care product chemicals, medications, pesticides, plastics, radiation, radon, tobacco, vinyl chloride, etc.


Biotoxins love to feed off weak organs or tissues. These include bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.  Bolster the immune system and use the right nutrition or herbals to address the specific pathogen and then rebuild the tissue so that it is no longer weak. 

Food Sensitivities

The body may surmount an Immunoglobulin A, E or G antibody response to a food you are consuming. These often times may pose as food sensititivities, allergies or intolerances. If this is the case, inflammation is a result. It is key to identify which foods your immune system is overeacting to and eliminate it from the diet temporarily, then clean the body’s bloodstream so that it no longer contains the food’s residue with the use of specific digestive enzymes. Lastly, rebalance the immune system so that it no longer over reacts to that food when it is reintroduced into the diet. We use the BioscanSRT. But N.A.E.T., ATT, AIET will all work just as well. 
Common foods that our patients have issues with are often dairy, eggs, grains, nuts, seeds, seafood, caffeine, sugar, sugar alternatives, specific meats, etc. 

Nutrient Deficiencies

Let’s face it. If you haven’t been eating the foods that the societies Dr. Weston A. Price studied, you most likely have multiple nutritional deficiencies. We’ll figure out what you need to add to your diet to fill in the gaps. Your basic pharmaceutical company made synthetic multi-vitamin isn’t going to cut it. Sorry.
