The Health in Balance Approach

INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

It has finally happened! Through our integrative model, we bring together the best of many healthcare disciplines for your benefit, combining a wealth of knowledge, years of experience, and a wide range of services. We combine functional medical care, chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, nutrition, and lifestyle medicine to provide well rounded and effective healthcare.

We have been in Laguna Beach for 30 years as a chiropractic and natural medicine practice. Recently, we have implemented an integrative model to our practice with a medical doctor on board! We are bringing the disciples together to provide a broader range of beneficial services to offer you.

Our Approach

When functioning properly, the body heals itself as it was designed to do. Health challenges arise when the body’s systems get out of balance. We seek to identify and diagnose the underlying issues inhibiting natural healing. Through high quality, holistic treatment, we address the whole body in order to bring about real change. We provide a customized and personalized plan of care for each of our patients. This allows for symptom relief and long term correction and restoration leading to a healthy, active, energetic, and pain-free quality of lifestyle!

 

"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his or her patient in the care of the human frame, in proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

-Thomas Edison

How profound, insightful, and prophetic Thomas Edison was. Many people think that being healthy is merely an absence of symptoms. In reality there is so much more to living at your optimal level. The body is designed to health itself. This is the cornerstone of our integrative medical practice.

 
 

The Body Was Designed to Heal Itself

The power that made your body, heals your body.

•    If you cut your finger, it bleeds, a scab forms, and it heals.
•    Your body makes 2.5 million red blood cells and 250,000 white blood cells every second.
•    And greatest of all, your liver performs over 657 functions simultaneously without you being aware of them. 
•    There are approximately 650 muscles in your body and 50-75 trillion cells in your body and your nervous system is the master control system of the human body
•    A single neuron can handle as many as 833 impulses per second, and we have up to 100 billion neurons in our bodies
•    You started out as 2 cells from mom and dad. Through a miraculous process, your body’s innate intelligence and healing power formed this incredible masterpiece…you!

 

Four Main Systems of the Body

There are four primary governing systems in the body that integrate and depend on each other to be fully functional. 

The four main systems of the body are structural, biochemical, emotional, and electromagnetic. Health is enjoyed when all these systems are in balance and working ideally. When one system gets stressed or out of balance, it can negatively affect all other systems and lead to degeneration and disease processes.

Components of the four governing systems

 

Stress Interferes with Your Body's Health

If your body is not healing itself correctly, there is something interfering with this normal healing process. Symptoms may or may not be evident. This interference is termed STRESS. The accumulative effects of these stressors in the four governing systems are what interferes with your body’s ability to heal itself. These stressors will cause you to experience pain and for your quality of life to suffer. Symptoms will eventually worsen and cause your body to age and degenerate prematurely.

 

Decreasing the Stress Allows the Body to Heal

Our goal as Natural Health Care Providers is to help you decrease these stressors, so your body can better heal itself.

We evaluate and treat each system to decrease the stress load. This will allow the body's healing energy to relieve symptoms and bring the body back to balance. Chinese medicine has been studying and applying this for over three thousand years. We combine recent scientific and medical breakthroughs with ancient wisdom to bring about some of the most effective healthcare solutions available. As your systems are brought into balance, your health can be restored! Benefits include:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved energy and vitality
  • A younger and more vibrant appearance as you get your glow back!

This is accomplished by making healthy lifestyle choices and receiving the logical care you need. 

 

The Journey to Health

Beginning the Process

In office evaluations begin with a thorough health history, a review of symptoms, and a clear understanding of your prioritized health goals. The appropriate exams and tests will reveal abnormalities and determine your logical diagnosis. Then, a report of findings will help you better understand the nature of your condition. Strategic treatment plan options are then discussed so that you can choose an approach that you are comfortable with, ready for, and is in your best interest. Financial arrangement can then be made, and treatment can begin!
