Functional Medicine
Functional medicine heralds a new shift in the way that we view health and disease. Using the latest advancements in medical testing, together with trusted holistic analytical tools and a forward-thinking approach to healthcare, functional medicine uncovers the root cause of illness and disease. Once identified, an individualized health program is drafted that includes condition-specific natural health supplements, a holistic nutrition diet plan and lifestyle recommendations based on your unique bio-individuality.

You were born to stay healthy.

Your body was designed to be self-repairing, self-regenerating – if given the right environment. With an increased toxic load, poor diet, elevated stress levels and lack of exercise, the body starts to display signs and symptoms. Symptoms are the body’s way of telling us that something is wrong, whether it is a digestive disorder, weight gain, chronic fatigue, hormonal imbalance, allergies, heart disease or cancer. Very often we find that many of these symptoms stem from the same root issue. I like to compare symptoms to the language of a non verbal toddler who points and grunts to communicate. The symptoms are your body communicating discomfort to something you are exposing it to.  
Functional medicine recognizes this and evaluates these contributing factors on an individual basis; working efficiently to resolve root-cause issues as opposed to treating the symptoms. Functional medicine is based on a ‘patient-centred’ model rather than a ‘disease-centred’ model of health care, restoring health, wellness and vitality instead of treating disease.

To keep it simple this is how I think of it. 
"Remove from the body what is not of the Lords design, and replenish what is missing. The body will heal." 
You Can Heal
When you're in a low place with your health you just need someone who believes in you. 
believe in you.

Awakened Wellness LLC does not take insurance. We do have luck with most HSA cards. Unfortunately, most insurance does not recognize functional medicine because there is no diagnoses or pharmaceuticals in the plan of care. 

Muscle Testing

Using your muscles, we can discover what  “weakens” or “strengthens” your body. This process is called applied kinesiology or more commonly referred to as “muscle testing.” Muscle testing taps into the subconscious mind which allows us to answer questions about our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It's a noninvasive method designed to determine the potential underlying causes of physical and emotional issues. It’s simply a really cool way we can ask your body questions and get clear answers – like a direct line to the subconscious mind.

This is a new service and I am a novice practitioner at best. So, at this time I do not charge for this service and an appreciate my clients that are willing to assist me in practicing my skills. It is is very valuable tool to have in the tool box.
