CoherenceClinic provides health consulting services using an assessment-led practice to give individuals precise insights into essentials for life.
Our services are person-centered and inform care, services that are complementary to both the person and conventional care. We look closely at our client's experience and range of possible assessments. These guide light feedback based therapies and inform decisions about programs possibly including nutritional supplementation. We track changes of health in an informative context.
The CoherenceCllnic assessment-led approach involves asking useful questions and asking the client's MD or ND for revealing tests. These prove particularly useful for clients before accepting cookie-cutter diagnoses, one-size-fits-all treatments or courses of compounding medications.
Clients Who See Us
Clients often call us when they receive a medical diagnosis that doesn't quite feel right, has no cure and leads to over-treatment or unwanted side effects. Conditions have included for example:
Neuro-cognitive, mood, and memory problems that are given labels like Autism, bipolar, MS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and epilepsy;
Metabolic syndromes associated with medical terms like Obesity, diabetes, chronic fatigue, depression, bipolar and MS;
Inflammation, autoimmune reactions, Lupus, headaches and menopausal symptoms, or blood conditions including lymphoma or anemia;
Tumors, cysts or lesions that doctors call Cancer;
Complex symptoms summarized as unexplained high or low blood pressure then called Cardiovascular Disease;
Immune disruptions blamed on patient behaviors such as pregnancy, trauma, malnutrition, food-based chemicals, allergies, exposure to air and water-borne toxins, radiation, HIV, and AIDs.
Cancer is a good example. Frightening to hear you've got an odd growth! According to recent studies, many are slow growing or self-resolving in ways doctors might not know. Some are known to be benign, so medical diagnosis is informative.
Still, many of the 87,000 official Diseases including tumors remain unexplained. Disease names have grown faster than the population as doctors label chronic and age-related conditions. Over 100 years, there are few new cures beyond 500 for infections. Yet, most diseases have standard treatments. And an amazing array of terrible conditions can stem from infections that could be treated if they were not so chronic or sub-clinical that the condition falls under a diagnostic differential given another name. Few diseases are really the fast one-way street to a disaster that a diagnosing doctor might describe to you as your risk or worst-case scenario.
Nobody is the same as the statistical risk for a disease. Every situation differs from the simplified scenarios that characterize medical evidence and either-or logic. It's reasonable to ask what's going on with you, and in what context. Regardless of the diagnostic label, improvement in health and protection of health is not only possible. Protecting one's health is essential. The challenge is that Medicine focuses on Disease and its treatment. People remain responsible for their life and health.
For clients who want to understand more fully what's going on with them, we provide a minimum of two initial sessions that include assessments and feedback based treatments. For chronic or complex conditions, we can also coordinate a Systematic Review to supply an Insights Report involving test protocols offered in conjunction with an ND or MD. This can take up to two months but helps inform a client and their doctors about more of what's going on that are pertinent to their health. Combined with gentle therapies, the substantial information we provide to clients has proven significantly beneficial.
Clarity is better than guesswork. In the era of nutritional genomics, molecular, cellular and systems biology, individuals can access self-assessments to better understand their condition. That is if people and their doctors care as much about individual health as they care about Disease naming and generic treatment. Yet, meaningful information is needed, not just more data.
We're talking about life! Conditions are not just either-or decisions about medical interventions. Together, we can help clients get a handle on their health, improve their self-understanding and situation, and make decisions on a more informed basis. It means looking beyond generic answers to medically defined problems and seeing the person as more than a disease or generic description of an individual condition.
If health is valued and part of your intention then we'd be pleased to work with you. We enjoy meeting new clients through introductions from existing clients and their doctors.
