Nutritional Evaluation

Heart Sound Recorder

The Heart Sound Recorder is a computer-based low risk general wellness monitor, which uses the principles of auscultation to observe heart sounds. During this non-invasive procedure, a specialized microphone is placed over each of the four valve areas of the heart while graphing the sound and movement. The heart’s reaction to certain stressors, (ie. chemical, nutritional, and emotional), can be observed using this type of device. Certain types of heart stress can be monitored by observing the RATE, RHYTHM, and TONE of the heart cycle on the graph.

The Heart Sound Recorder can be an important tool in evaluating your overall health and in following the progress you are making under wellness care.

Nutritional Reflex Technique (NRT)

A method whereby the examiner determines imbalances in function of the organs and systems of the body by touching acupuncture points and testing for weakness using a strong muscle (usually the shoulder muscle) as an indicator. This can be used as a stand alone evaluation for nutritional need, but is usually performed in our office as a complement to doing a careful health history and lifestyle review, as well as, evaluating various physical findings and lab test results. Testing a persons weak acupuncture points in conjunction with them holding samples of various substances/nutrients, further helps in determining the exact nutritional formulas and dosages needed to correct their condition.

Lab Tests

Tests on blood, urine, hair, saliva, and/or stool (many of them very specialized and unique to the practice of functional nutrition) may be run, if necessary, to further analyze your condition and determine the best course of action to restore your health.

Nutritional Supplements

We use over 350 products from more than 40 different companies. Most formulas are specialized combinations which are not available in any store and are primarily food based and organic. Over 35 years of research and clinical experience have gone into determining which are the most effective products to use in our nutritional programs. We are always searching for the best products at the most reasonable cost, and don’t hesitate to make a change in what we use in order to achieve optimum results.
