When you feel pain or have any type of symptom, do you ever wonder what the root cause of it is? 

Hands in Health uses functional medicine for their complex cases, or those that are looking for a whole body treatment plan. 

After a detailed history, we are able to go over your recent lab work or order specific labs just like your M.D., to help determine the root cause of your pain and or symptoms. 

We will work with you to go over your results and create an awesome personalized plan that is going to help you regain your youthful self. 

As a licensed functional medicine practice, you can have confidence using Hands in Health as your one-stop shop for many of your wellness needs. 

We have incorporated blood work, saliva testing, food allergy testing, hair analysis, symptom surveys, whole food nutritional support, and lifestyle improvements. 

For blood and saliva testing, we use Professional Co-op and Evexia. Both are extremely competitive in pricing. For example, a complete blood count (CBC), is $17.00, (with a $7 drawing fee). 

We will work with you and create a diagnostic game plan to get the answers we need to determine what is causing your reason for starting with us. 

ALCAT is the company we trust with our food allergy testing. They give us the ability to start small, and test just a couple of items, but they also enable us to go big and test everything in one swoop. 

Hair analysis provides a mineral blueprint of your biochemistry. A small sample of hair will give us helpful information about your metabolic rate, energy levels, and long-term stress level. Our ARL hair test will screen 20 essential minerals and toxic metal levels in your body. This test is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and extremely accurate. 

We will review all of our findings, and provide a detailed treatment plan specific to your goals. 

Your lab results are the “result” of your dietary choices, lifestyle habits, daily routines, body movement practices, sleep schedule, and other environmental factors.

We view the body as a whole system, not a collection of independent organs, working separately from each other. We treat the whole person, and not just their symptoms. 

Functional medicine is a shift from disease-centered healthcare to a more patient-centered approach. We will spend the necessary time with each patient, to hear their history, their lifestyle and their wellness goals. 

We are experiencing a massive increase in preventable chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders. 

The medical field is essential for acute trauma and emergencies. Unfortunately, medications have side effects and can be harmful when used long-term as preventable measures. Diet and lifestyle changes are safe options, that everyone shoulder try first. 

Your Nervous system blocks 97% of the pain that is sent to your brain. That means that if are feeling pain or symptoms, your stress cup is overflowing. With the help of functional medicine, we are able to find the imbalances before they accumulate to a point of concern. Have you ever been told by your doctor, “It’s not too bad yet, let’s check it again in a year.” Why not just knock your stress pile down now, and prevent small problems from growing out of control? 

Functional medicine is able to look upstream, catch problems early, and allows you to create an individual game plan to restore you to your original, vibrant self.
