Jennifer's Comprehensive Approach to Treatment
Most imbalances in functionality can be addressed; some can be completely restored to optimum function, and others can be substantially improved.
Prevention is paramount. Virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by long-term disturbances in functionality that can be identified and effectively managed.
Changing how your biological systems function can have a major impact on the patient’s health. Treatments may include lifestyle, exercise, or stress-management techniques, botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, or detoxification programs.
The patient becomes a partner. As a patient, you will really be in charge of improving your own health and changing the outcome of disease.
