In-office Diagnostic Lab Tests
To determine what is causing your health challenges, we may evaluate the health of your body's systems: immune system,
digestion, blood sugar regulation, thyroid and liver function, adrenal reserves, spinal health and balance, as well as your hormone balance and bone density.
We're also checking for chronic inflammation, excessive oxidation, and food sensitivities - all commonly found to trigger heart disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer's, and most other chronic degenerative diseases of our day.
In all cases, we always investigate the most common underlying factors that contribute to these imbalances, ultimately resulting in the decline of your health and promotion of disease:
- Nutritional Deficiencies
- Excessive Toxicity
- Sleep Debt
- Unmanaged Stress
- Insufficient or Inappropriate Exercise
We utilize testing procedures that are safe, while providing valuable clues as to why your body hurts, is tired, or whatever might be your particular symptoms. To give you an idea, depending on your individual circumstances, a typical evaluation may include:
- Thorough Consultation, including Medical History
- Health & Lifestyle Assessment (review of diet, exercise, lifestyle, drugs, etc.)
- Holistic Physical Examination
- Blood, Urine, and/or Saliva Laboratory Tests
- Specialized Studies

An understanding about how to truly nourish our bodies is foundational to our looking, feeling, and functioning to our genetic potential. With the myriad of food labels, clever marketing, and 'expert' opinions everywhere, deciphering how to best feed ourselves and our families is more critical than ever.
Learning simple, practical, affordable, and healthy dietary guidelines can be enjoyable, delectable, and fun!
Learning largely unknown dietary clues specific to you could make all the difference in how you look, feel, and function. Call our office at (772) 283-4046, or Request an Appointment, today!
The research is now conclusive: Due to current lifestyle habits, food quality, stress levels, toxicity in our environment, and sleep challenges, we now need nutrient supplementation to meet our daily nutritional needs.
The only question to answer is, "What do you need and how much?" To enhance our patient´s return to optimal health, we provide specific nutritional recommendations and healthy food choices based on an individual's lifestyle routine and habits, as well as from blood, urine, and saliva testing (as indicated).
Discovering your specific nutrient deficiencies and learning how to easily replenish them, will help fast-track you to a better quality of living. Call our office at (772) 283-4046, or Request an Appointment, today!
Research has now shown that our joints are designed for movement, and not as much to support our weight. Our muscles are suppose to be doing the job of carrying our body and suspending our weight ... like in a sling.
GREAT NEWS FOR YOU AND YOUR KNEES and other joints!
This means that when your major muscles are conditioned, flexible, and balanced front to back and left to right, that there is very little pressure (weight) in your joints.
By strengthening the muscles that are weak, and stretching the specific muscles that are too short, rehabilitation time is shorter, and your are on the road to preventing future recurrences and injuries.
To determine which muscles in your body are deconditioned (weak), and which muscles are too short (to tight), we perform a specific biomechanical examination. Then, we teach you special "prescription" exercises designed specifically for you to help strengthen and correct your own unique imbalances.
These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home, and our experience shows that they will reduce the amount of treatment, and improve the effectiveness of treatment you receive by as much as 30-40%.
Get the most benefit from your exercise time, and learn how to make it a more enjoyable experience, while avoiding injuries and pain! Call our office at (772) 283-4046, or Request an Appointment, today!
Lifestyle Guidance and Support
What you can do for yourself - given the right direction, understanding, and appropriate support - is far more powerful and effective in helping you regain and maintain your health, than anything anyone else can do for or "to" you (e.g., treatment).
Authentic healthcare education and effective support are the cornerstone of reclaiming new levels of health and vitality. Through our evidence-based approach to health-responsible living, we provide you with guidance to help you:
- Meet your body's dietary and nutritional needs
- Get more restorative, healing sleep
- Move your body (exercise) safely and more effectively
- Improve your weight and shape in a healthy and sustainable way
- Manage stress and expand your resiliency and adaptability
To efficiently and accurately assess and promote your health and well-being, we utilize a combination of questionnaires, examination, and harmless testing procedures.
