Foundational health refers to the most basic underpinning of well-being in the mind and body:   the neuro-musculo-skeletal structure, and its inter-connection with every other system in the body. 


Like functional and bio-logical medicine, foundational health looks for the underlying root causes of chronic conditions, rather than addressing symptoms such as spinal mis-alignments, weight, pain and mood issues.


The "neuro" in neuro-musculo-skeletal refers to: 

  • the skeletal nervous system ... your brain’s connections to your muscles; 
  • the autonomic nervous system ... your unconscious, automatic body functions that communicate with your immune system and organs;  and
  • the enteric system ... a third unconscious system in your body found in your gut and called "the second brain," because while it talks to the brain, it also has the ability to act independently and influence behavior.  


The "musculo-skeletal" in neuro-musculo-skeletal refers to the body's frame with special attention to the spine. 


Foundational health explores the fascinating emerging science of epi-genetics, neuro-plasticity,  psycho-neuro-immunology, neuro-gastroenterology, orthomolecular medicine, and how discoveries in these fields can shed light on your own health and well-being. 


Working with us, you will also be introduced to information on inflammation, detoxification, the micro-biome, mindfulness, and other elements of balanced living. 


We will also, as-needed, direct you to scientifically-sound, measurable, predictable and reproducible testing methods, to help you achieve your goals toward well-being. 

"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease"
