Our approach to health is simple. We aim to improve your health as quickly as possible using the most powerful tools in natural health care. Chiropractic care, nutritional supplementation, detoxification, and lifestyle education allows us to look at and treat the entire person, a holistic view. Our philosophy is to uncover the true cause of disease and to “leave no stone unturned”. Due to the complexities of today’s health challenges, it is important to look at each of the four main factors that can create disease: stress, toxins, malnutrition, and physical laziness. To provide this high level of natural care, Dr. Andrew follows the Triad of Health as his model for treating patients.
According to the International College of Applied Kinesiology:
The triad of health lists the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical, and mental, with structure as the base of the triad. Literally, all health problems, whether functional or pathological, are involved with one part or all parts of the triad. This is not new to chiropractic, as its founder, D.D. Palmer states in his text, “The Science, Art, and Philosophy of Chiropractic,” “The determining causes of disease are traumatism, poison and autosuggestion.” AK enables the doctor to evaluate the triad’s functional balance and direct therapy toward the imbalanced side or sides.
What sets Red Mountain Natural Medicine apart is that we have integrated several alternative health care approaches into one single practice which creates increased value for our patients. We provide state of the art, scientifically-based treatments that are custom tailored for each patient individually. Dr. Andrew uses his knowledge of Applied Kinesiology, Functional Medicine, and Functional Neurology to find the cause of your problem. By using these specialized tools, Dr. Andrew can find the weakness in your system, the cause of your problems, and use natural health care to quickly change your health for the better. We have success with a wide variety of health problems, everything from headaches and back pain to digestive issues, arthritis, and autoimmune disease.
We utilize the following cutting-edge natural health strategies:
• Chiropractic Care- patients receive specific adjustments (manual, drop piece, instrument-assisted) that unlock tight joints, promote proper spinal and body alignment, and increase the function of the nervous system.
• Applied Kinesiology -this powerful diagnostic tool allows Dr. Andrew to uncover and treat areas of hidden weakness and dysfunction in the structure, chemistry, and neurology of the human body.
• Functional Medicine – an entire line of science-based nutritional formulas is available to support metabolic health, detoxification, and make sure your body has all the raw ingredients necessary to be healthy in our toxic and stress-filled world.
• Functional Neurology – a neurological model of patient care that allows Dr. Andrew to determine which areas of the brain and nervous system are working improperly and to direct treatment to those areas.
• Exercise/Injury Rehabilitation – therapeutic exercises and equipment is used to help retrain and stabilize the weak areas of the body, helping to reduce pain and increase function and quality of life.
• Laboratory Analysis and Evaluation – Dr. Andrew provides access to testing of blood, urine, saliva, and stool which can be valuable in uncovering hidden deficiencies, infections, and hormone imbalances.
• Diet and Lifestyle Coaching – as part of the holistic approach, each patient will receive current scientific information about healthy nutrition, exercise and stress management.
