How do we treat it?
We do extensive examination of the entire body including the spine and organs and determine is there is an underlying cause to the condition. Usually there is a toxicity issue and they are put on a detox. Once this is accomplishes we work on building up the system with a nutrition plan and supplements specific to the individual.
We are treating the body as a complete whole. We are finding indicators of where the body is in stress and correct them. Each correction is a step closer in getting the body back to a balanced state. Once balanced the symptoms decrease.
