Alternative, Functional Medicine:
Here at IHS we customize individual therapies utilizing Genetics and Functional Integrative Medicine. With a provided genetic analysis, we look at specific methylation and detoxification abnormalities which contribute to ill health. Our unique approach is what makes us different.
We customize each therapy according to the needs of the client
We consider everything right down to the genetic level realizing genetic expression plays a role in your health
We balance the whole body taking into consideration each unique set of symptoms with client's past health history and gene profile
A diagnosis is the only way the medical field knows how to categorize specific signs and symptoms in one's body. IHS takes signs, symptoms, and diagnosis seriously, however we believe that they are just names associated with underlying health issues. We strive to get to the root cause of all issues, which is why our practice encourages all our patients to get a genetic analysis so we can better serve you.
Take for example Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This diagnosis can be derived by one's specific experience, and can be triggered by many different experiences. Genetic properties conclude the reason as to why two people can go through the same thing and one may end up with PTSD, and one may be unaffected.
Genetics essentially play a role in everything.
SCIO Bio-Feedback Scans
The bio-feedback machine works in quantum entanglement, which is how we can scan our patient's bodies from a long distance (tele-medicine). Dr. Debbie uses this tool to help her see how the body is (un)balanced, and where proper function may be missing.
The bio-feedback scan electrically measures re-activity in the body for the purpose of cellular stress reduction. The SCIO bio-feedback system is not designed to diagnose, heal, or cure. It is used for whole body stress detection and reduction. Stress can be physical, mental, or emotional and produces a strain on the body. IHS uses this technology to collect information to monitor each clients progress and reduce cellular stress.
Dr. Debbie recommends that all her patients get a genetic analysis. This is a saliva test that is ordered through our office. Once you get your results, Dr. Debbie can profile out your raw methylation and detoxification data and help you bypass your genetic defects and get your body working properly again. The great thing about your genes, is that they will never change! Genetic profiling allows IHS to be precise in targeting and bypassing some of the root causes of your health issues. Your body is made up of vitamins and minerals, so specific nutrition is all you need to bypass specific gene SNPs.
Nicholas Marini, a UC Berkeley research scientist understands how defective genes can be altered to function properly with vitamins and minerals. He states in an article posted on ScienceDaily.com June 3, 2008 by University of California - Berkeley, "Good News In Our DNA: Defects You Can Fix With Vitamins And Minerals."
"I wouldn't be surprised if everybody is going to require a different optimal dose of vitamin based on their genetic makeup, based upon the kind of variance they are harboring in vitamin-dependent enzymes."
Get on Dr. Debbie's schedule for a phone consultation! She can answer any questions you have or go over any concerns.
*All patients or potential new patients must call-in to the office for their phone appointments, unless the Concierge Service is requested 802-485-3965*
