The only thing we require of our patients is that they are ready for their healing path and to take personal responsibility for their health. If you’re open to a new possibility to live, one that is filled with hope, we want you to join us.
You have to decide that for yourself. We teach our patients that healing is an inborn power we all have. After millions of years of evolution, we are uniquely adapted to the conditions of this planet — self healing mechanisms to allow for incredible resiliency. We are designed not only to survive, but to thrive. You hold the key. We can show you the door, but you must. The people who work with us have experienced profound results.
At Haven, we deeply individualize everyone’s diet based on three components: food intolerances, metabolic individuality, and traditional therapeutic foods. First, we assess food intolerances. Food intolerances are constitutional enzyme deficiencies that we inherited from our ancestors. Next, we assess metabolic individuality. Everyone has a unique metabolic balance based on their cellular pH, ranging from acidic to alkaline and everywhere in between. Metabolic individuality is the reason why some people thrive on a vegetarian diet, some thrive on a Mediterranean diet, and some thrive on a paleolithic or ketogenic diet. Finally, after identifying a person’s food intolerances and metabolic individuality, we recommend traditional therapeutic foods to each person based on their nutritional needs.
Functional medicine finds biochemical imbalances in the body and uses specific supplements to address the numbers on the lab work to realign the body. Although that has its place you can also very easily see that you are much greater than numbers on a lab. You have past life experiences, everyday actions, and thoughts that greatly impact your health - every single day. We find that many alternative health care practitioners have good intentions but they don’t take into account the whole person. You are a unique, conscious individual living in a complex world. You have to address your unique imbalances that are much greater than biochemical pathways.
