Care Philosophy


While symptoms can tell us a lot about your health condition, they don't tell us the whole story. We explore something deeper than your symptoms- central cause. We assure that the underlying, root cause of your health condition is uncovered and directly addressed. We are committed to getting to the functional imbalance at the root of your health concerns.


You are more like a snowflake than a widget- you are a unique collection of genes, lifestyle and vitality. We do not support mass-media, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approaches to your health. We appreciate that you have a unique physiology and we work hard to match your therapeutic regimen to your unique genes, distinctive constitution and specific health imbalance.


We recognize that in healing, small things matter. We utilize advanced laboratory diagnostics and comprehensive statistical analysis to monitor very subtle changes in your physiology- continually refining our therapeutic approach.

Manchester, NH |
I began the health assessment via phone and moved forward with two phone consultations and extensive and expensive lab tests. When I had the "results" conversation, I learned just how expensive the ongoing care/advise would be. I would urge folks considering the assessment to have the cost conversation on the front end. I discovered that the follow-up work would cost between $7,000 - 15,000. I am pretty sure these costs would not be covered by most insurance companies.
