Our approach to healthcare is well-rounded in addressing symptoms as well as system dysfunction from a holistic perspective. We take time to get to know you and focus on each of your health concerns to initiate the most effective treatment plan possible. We will order appropriate lab testing and evaluate results with functional ranges, rather than just using the standard lab ranges that say “normal” or “disease”. Using functional ranges helps us to identify patterns trending toward disease so we can address the issue before you qualify for a diagnosis.
The basis of our care involves using muscle testing techniques for immediate input on what your body needs. By stimulating organ-specific reflex points and testing the strength of associated muscles, we receive direct information from the body to begin a path of treatment. In order to identify organ-related problems on lab tests, the function of the organ has to have already decreased by 40%. So, how to we catch the problem before 40% function is gone and you are suffering? The techniques we use allow us to pick up on these problems before they are severe - meaning, we can treat your symptoms before your organs are truly struggling and feeding into disease. These unique methods of practice are explained further below.
We support your health with nutrition, botanical medicine, manual therapies, homeopathy and lifestyle medicine.
How do we know when to use herbs vs. nutrients or something else? That's where muscle testing comes into play again. Our bodies are highly intelligent and can pick up on signals from the environment without us consciously realizing it. For example, when you feel that someone is staring at you without any other clues than just a feeling. That change in your environment was picked up by your subconscious (or autonomic) nervous system. By contacting a substance with your body, we can see an immediate response with a muscle test to know if your body will respond positively to the treatment
Proper use of these techniques requires many hours of study and a thorough understanding of human physiology. Dr. Kurtz strives to implement her knowledge of the human body and the use of these techniques to help her patients understand what is going on in their body when they're experiencing symptoms.
We do not provide quick fixes! Honestly, there is no quick fix or “magic bullet” for chronic illness. It takes years of stress, poor eating habits, dehydration, toxicity, etc. to form a chronic illness, so we can’t expect to undo all of it in one day. While we approach healthcare from a holistic perspective using natural therapies, we expect to make progress over time by peeling back layers of dysfunction and refueling your body with the things it needs to heal.
