Core Values of
An Integrative Approach
Unlike conventional medical care, we first help patients heal and then empower them with the knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now… with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!
With our step-by-step guidance, we’ll implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.
Not only is each patient biologically unique, but their illness is too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment… plus let’s not forget mindset (which plays a big role in your health).
After we do your intake, we may conduct further speciality lab tests (that your current doctor may not even know about). Plus, we also use other assessment tools to get the full picture of your health so that with the right precise information, we can come up with the right precise healing protocol.
Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren’t serving you any longer. We make the prospect of becoming healthy “fun” and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.
We also leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We also harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.
In your typical 7-minute doctor’s visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness… let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.
During our in-depth inital consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review of your health to understand all the potential triggers for your illness. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unravelling the root causes of your illness.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike conventionally-trained practitioners, we focus on getting to the root causes of your illness. We also examine the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all the symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Known as “functional medicine”, our treatment approach is so effective because we focus on dealing with the “up-stream” catalysts of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, along with the mindset issues that all determine how healthy you are to date.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor’s office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.
At the International Clinic of Nutrition, we are trained in the most up-to-date medicine – including the best, most advanced testing and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals.
