Naturopathic medicine has so much to offer. It provides individualized care and focuses on creating the conditions for health to support the body in healing itself. This is one of the things I love most about this medicine.
When someone comes to Upper Peninsula Natural Wellness for guidance on their health journey, more often than not they have many challenges taking place. My goal is to implement the most gentle intervention to make the biggest shift in their health. One way I am able to do this is through a program called SHAPE ReClaimed.
This is a health restoration and lifestyle modification program that combines a patented homeopathic supplement with the nutrition protocol for a simple, effective and safe way to achieve optimal health. The goal is to teach you new skills and help you embrace a healthy lifestyle.
I find this program simple and effective. It is organized into three phases: cleanse, stabilize, and live.
These three phases are designed to first balance your brain chemistry, strengthen your immune system, and cleanse your body of excess weight and toxins.
Then you will reincorporate new foods and begin to stabilize your weight and brain health, and lastly, learn to maintain this healthy lifestyle.
This program is customized to your bio-individual needs. What this means is that I will use your health history, symptoms, and urinalysis results to adjust this protocol specifically for you. This will ensure you feel satiated and achieve optimum results. You receive your own program guidebook, nutrition guide, dietary supplement, and any other recommendations I have found to be beneficial to your healing journey. A urinalysis is used to measure your improvements, and we meet weekly to answer questions, hold you accountable, establish positive health habits, and learn how to take control of your health.
Individuals have experienced a decrease in inflammation, fewer joint problems, better digestion, normalized blood pressure, lower cholesterol and triglycerides, balanced blood sugar, cognitive improvements, reduced dependence on prescription medications, optimal weight, and better overall health.
Is the program hard? Well, to answer that I often challenge those who come to see me with a mindset shift: Choose your hard!
This means that taking a risk is hard. Staying stuck is hard. Getting in shape is hard. Being out of shape is hard. Meal prep and choosing health over convenience can be hard. Feeling sick, bloated, and inflamed from eating processed food is hard.
Prioritizing self-care is hard. Not making time for self-care is hard.
The moral of the story is: Life is hard. No matter which direction you choose, it’s going to be a challenge. The solution? Choose the hard that pushes you to be better and closer to your goals! You are stronger than you think, and can do hard things!
I look forward to the opportunity to help you on your health journey. I work with individuals locally in my office, and remotely via phone or zoom. Call, text or email the office to schedule a free twenty minute consultation to see if you are a good fit, and ready to take control of your health.
