General Health Consultations
Whether your body is currently with a disease or if you are looking to take your health to the next level, Life. Health. Happiness. can help.
Come in for a consult to receive advice on an acute illness like a cold or to reduce the symptoms on a long-term chronic illness. All illnesses come down to similar issues such as nutrient deficiencies, toxicity in the body, and how well your body handles these issues. We do not diagnosis illness, we help support your body with its current imbalances.
Using our natural pharmacy we can help support you.
Our pharmacy includes nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, and botanicals (herbal supplements). We will also help you be on the most efficient supplement regimens and diet recommendations for your individual body.
When you come in for an appointment, be prepared to talk. We spend time not only learning about you and going back to the beginning of your overall health in order to understand how to effectively help you.
“Biofeedback”- Electro Dermal Screening according to Voll
The Chinese mapped the body’s meridian pathways thousands of years ago. Every meridian pathway and acupuncture point refers to a different organ or system in the body.
The body has a chemical and electrical system. Electro-Acupuncture by Voll (EAV) is based on a science called “ohm-tometry” and it is a non-invasive way to measure your body’s electrical system.
The EAV biofeedback system uses a very small electric voltage, undetectable to the skin (IT DOESN’T HURT) and sends the voltage into the body. The practitioner places this voltage to the TCM acupuncture points using a pen-like probe. If that point in the body has more water under the skin, it will have a higher reading. If it has less water, it will have a lower reading.
This is not a diagnostic tool.
Functional medicine approaches medicine in an innovative and powerful new way. It is constantly progressing by taking into account new medical studies, genetic science, and the understanding of environmental and lifestyle factors. This holistic approach better reveals what is happening within the body.
Using different forms of biochemical measurements, the practitioner is able to take a deeper look at the bio-individuality of your body and assessing overall health.
This progressive approach to the practice of medicine offers different clinical models for the support of health and easing of symptoms of chronic disease.
We use functional medicine because it teaches practitioners to look at patterns happening within your whole body and encourages a thorough review of your medical history, genetics, and environmental lifestyle factors that can affect disease.
In 2003 the human genome project was successfully completed and it would change the way that the world would look at medicine.
This is still an emerging field and there are constantly new genes being researched. The discoveries in the research reveal ways these genes work together within the body to heal and prevent diseases.
For example, did you know that celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are genetic conditions?
If someone carries the HLA-DQA2 (rs2858331) or HLA-DQA1 (rs2187668) they have an increased risk for gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.
The benefit of knowing your genetics is that you will understand what your body’s genetic strengths and weaknesses are.
Life. Health. Happiness. can also use this information combined with the biofeedback and/or functional medicine to further understand your overall health on a much deeper level.
We can take anyone’s genetic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and displays them on the body’s biochemical pathways.
We then paint you a clear picture of what your body’s natural tendencies are and then show you how to bypass them through the use of nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle alterations.
Through genetics, we can help you have a greater understanding on your bio-individuality while including exercise, diet, and supplement recommendations.
Reducing weight can be very tricky, the goal of Life. Health. Happiness. is to help you find a weight loss program that works for you without depriving your body, starving you, or keeping you away from delicious nutritious foods.
Nutrition is about you and your goals and we aim to respect your boundaries while still achieving your goals.
There are also times when there are imbalances within the body that prevent weight loss on a physical or mental level.
We work with people to remove whatever is inhibiting your weight loss and help guide you through the troubled waters.
Diet for Disease
There are a LOT of diets out there claiming to reverse disease. There is also a LOT of contradicting evidence on which diet works best. So how do you know which diet is right for you?
We believe that nutrient density and bio-individuality are the keys to helping combat disease. The body’s natural cravings will give an indication on which diet will best support each person.
Between the use of Dr. Maddie’s education, knowledge, and listening to the client’s body, we will discover the best diet solution to help optimize your body and restore your health.
If you are currently struggling with a certain illness, nutrition can play a crucial role to help your body.
Nutrition Therapy / Consultations
Let’s face it… healthy diets are HARD and EMOTIONAL!!! Who knew that having to give up gluten or dairy could be such a roller coaster ride?
If you are having to change your diet because of disease or because you want to improve your health, we can help support you through this transition.
We pride ourselves in trying new products on the market to help ease the transition of these lifestyle alterations.
We offer both emotional support and brainstorm ideas to make the transition easy. Best of all…. NO JUDGEMENT!!!
The quality of food has decreased and going to the supermarket is not as easy as it used to be. Gluten? Conventional Dairy? GMOs? Pesticides?
Do you ever just wonder why people are worried about all these things?
Nutrition education is a way to give you unbiased information that will help you understand why certain people are choosing to avoid certain foods.
This is NOT something to persuade you to eat a certain way, but to educate you on the issues in the current food market so that you can make the best choices available.
If obstacles such as finances or intense cravings prevent you from being able to make the best choices, we can provide solutions to help.
Ketogenic and keto-adapted diets are a lifestyle that allows the body to fuel itself through the use of ketones.
Ketones are water-soluble molecules that are the byproducts of fats being broken down within the body.
The use of fat (ketones) releases about twice as much fuel as a gram of glucose. Ketosis can be beneficial for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It can also be used for weight loss, athletes, or just your average person.
We monitor your state of ketosis through the use of Ketonix sticks which is a breath analyzer that measures acetone levels.
It is important that we monitor your acetone levels at least weekly for six months to ensure that you are in a healthy ketosis state.
At Life. Health. Happiness. we do not believe one diet is right for everyone and understand that your diet will change throughout your lifetime.
A pregnant woman does not need to eat the same way that someone who is training for a marathon does.
Every body is unique and different and needs to be treated on a bio-individualized basis.
Dr. Maddie has gone through a multitude of diets to better understand how they work within the body and what their pros and cons are. She has personal experience with nutrition programs including GAPS, Low Carbohydrate, Intermittent Fasting, Whole 30, Paleo, Autoimmune Paleo, Blood Type, Hormone Typing, Elimination Diet, Low FODMAP, Low Histamine, and even spent 9 months as a Raw Vegan.
She did this not only for her health but also because she wanted to relate to people in order help them through their dietary challenges.
By starting out with your natural tendencies and listening to the body’s desires and cravings, we can begin to customize a diet that works for your body and lifestyle while still reaching your goals.
As humans, we are constantly exposed to toxins. Everywhere in our environment, there are toxins – in our water, in our food, in our clothes, and in the air we breathe.
It is important we detox the body on a regular basis to keep the internal systems functioning at the highest potential.
At Life. Health. Happiness. we use the IonCleanse by AMD.
The electrical frequencies ionize the water and divide the molecules into OH- and H+ ions.
The electronically charged field that is generated encourages the body to purge itself of toxicity.
The different conductivity ions attract and neutralize oppositely charged toxins.
In addition, the gentle pulse creates a calming sensation within the body that leaves you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
