Welcome, we are so glad you found us.
A.V.O.I.D. is a non-profit organization who Advocates, Educates, and Supports clients and their families who experience mental/emotional and addiction struggles. It is of great pleasure to provide a website that offers you valuable and resourceful information in your quest in finding wholeness. We practice a functional medicine approach by considering nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle factors that are often at the root cause of the individuals symptoms. We offer biomedical testing for a wide range of symptoms. These types of individual tests uncover root causes in metabolic pathways where there could be a blockage that hinders these pathways to effectively and efficiently function in an optimal manner. To learn more about functional medicine please go to our education page, there you will find a wonderful video presentation which explains the concept of functional medicine.
In Addition, we also believe there is a spiritual connection to addictions and mental/emotional struggles, therefore our spiritual practice is to place Jesus in the center of everything we do. However, with that said, I would like to make clear - we will never push Jesus on anyone, because this action is not Christ like. We accept and love you wherever you are on your healing journey. However, it is our belief that without him TRUE healing cannot take place! We have personally experienced the void in our life being healed through a relationship with Him. We are confident that if you will allow yourself to have an open mind and a receiving heart you will too.
You will also find on our service page what we call "The Seven Areas of Healing." We utilize this approach to bring balance and wholeness in ones life. It is believed when any one or more of these seven areas are out of balance then there is a significant potential that other areas in ones life will be out of balance. The seven areas of healing are: Nutrition, Spirituality, Physical Activity, Career/Purpose, Relationships, Emotional Stability, and Financial Freedom.
If you are interested in contacting us for services, events, products, speaking engagements, or for any other reason please feel free to do so through our contact us page.
