We do not believe there is just one way to heal. We believe the original design of each individual is so unique that it is imperative that we consider each person as the bio-individual they were created to be. A Functional Medicine approach allows us to do just that. We are here to help you uncover root causes - through a number of different modalities. We accomplish this through a series of steps where we get to know you as the individual you are.

Step One:

  • We offer a FREE twenty minute consultation. By phone/Skype/in person
  • You can ask any questions you like during this time.
  • We will explain to you how our program works and how it may benefit you.

Once we have both decided that we are a good fit for each other then we will continue on by setting your first appointment. [Should we not be a good fit then we will be happy to refer you to someone who is].

Step Two:

  • The first appointment generally runs approximately two hours.
  • Comprehensive Health History Evaluation.
  • We will discuss several options to move us forward in our investigative work in uncovering root causes and addressing your specific needs.
  • We will email you all necessary information.
  • If biomedical testing is suggested we will arrange for you to accomplish this.
  • When biomedical testing is complete we will set up the next appointment.
  • We will not leave you hanging, we will provide a few suggestions to help relieve symptoms before this appointment is over.
  • Here is where our true partnership in health and wellness begins with you.
  • We will never shut the door behind you and have you feel you are on your own ~ this would not ever be a part of our culture!

Step Three:

  • We will send you the test results and then go over the results step by step
  • During this meeting we will discuss the other areas in your life that may need to be considered in order to experience wholeness.
  • Once we are on our way to having all of the pieces of the puzzle together, then we will work closely with you to devise a plan that will benefit your goals, needs, and desires of living a healthier lifestyle.
  • You are very involved at this point of the plan and it is hoped that you will be just as committed if not more committed than we are.

Step Four:

  • You now have all the tools you need to find restoration and complete balance in your life ~ Spirit - Soul - Body!
  • You will understand what the underlying causes are that potentially happened to produce the illness in the first place.
  • You will know how and what the proposed treatment plan of action is and how it can restore a healthy physical and emotional balance.
  • You will be provided with a clear typed planned to take home that is easily understood and easily implemented.  

You have your plan in hand, now what?

Sickness is a process and Healing is a process. What took you months and years to reach, may take weeks and months to experience relief and healing of symptoms. This process will require you to be committed to your healing journey. We can not do the work for you, but we are here to support you every step of the way regardless of how long it takes to reach your desired goals.  

Step Five:

  • Here is where continued care begins....
  • We are available by phone (9am-5pm est; text 24/7 for emergency; and email we will respond within 24 hours).
  • Follow up visits are recommended once a month for the first 3 months then every three months for the first year.
  • After one year anniversary it is recommended to establish a follow up appointment every six months at the minimum. 

Step Six:

Our programs are handled on an individual basis:

  • We cover the seven steps of healing with everyone and we design these discussions based on the individuals needs. The seven areas of healing are; Nutrition, Spirituality, Physical Activity, Career/Purpose, Relationships, Emotional Stability, Financial Freedom. 
  • In addition, we offer biomedical testing to help in the investigation process of locating the probable root cause of the symptoms.
  • We offer one on one coaching in any of the seven areas above.
  • We use our own sources as well at third party resources to provide assistance to our clients
  • We will periodically provide detox programs, weight loss programs, and other programs related to the seven steps of healing.
  • Our goal is to offer assistance through; webinars, teleconferences, FB powerpoint presentations and more....

Informed Consent is your RIGHT to KNOW!

To know ALL risks and benefits of:

  • Proposed Treatment
  • All Alternative Treatments
  • No Treatment at all


While we advocate and offer a non-pharmaceutical approach, this does not mean we negate the need or importance of medications at some point in time in a person's life. Our goal here at A.V.O.I.D., is to help you live medication free, however if this is not possible then we hope to give you the tools necessary to live a life with as much reduced medication as possible. We will NEVER tell you to discontinue your medications, because by doing so this action can be detrimental to your well being. However, if you chose to do so, then it is highly recommended that this is only accomplished through your attending physician/psychiatrist. [If needed we can work with them in helping you achieve your medication free goals]. Please know just because it is a natural product and possibly a substance your body is deficient in does not mean you will not have an adverse reaction. This is one of the reasons why it is imperative to work with a professional who is trained in functional nutrition. We aspire to help you achieve the longest and best quality of life possible. In doing so we will always put our best efforts forward to support your spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. If medication(s) are needed then our program can still benefit you greatly, because applying functional nutrition is and will always be the best way to support a strong and healthy immune system.

If you feel at anytime you are capable of harming your self or others - please go to your local mental health or emergency room facility and seek help immediately.

The next video is one by Dr.William Walsh, founder of the Walsh Research Institute and author of Nutrient Power. The host for the webinar you are about to see goes into more detail of Dr. Walsh's background as a biochemist, researhcer and all of the many published journals and patents he has received. Dr. Walsh has a very impressive career in uncovering root causes that influence mental health. He offers a vast amount of information related to nutrition, environment, and lifestyle choices and how they are related to many of the mental health disorders we are seeing so much of today. Dr Walsh is where I first learned about Epigenetics and its role on our overall health. His focus, like my own, is in the role of epigenetics and its role in mental health. This is a video worth it's time to watch. We hope this selection will also help you in understanding what we have learned and now practice through A.V.O.I.D. as being a viable solution to overcoming addiction, mental/emotional struggles. Should you need help in these areas please feel free to go to our contact uspage and send us an email or you may reach us by phone. I highly recommend Dr. Walsh's book "Nutrient Power." You can order your copy through our book store.
