My passion for and practice of restorative medicine is based upon the belief and experience that the body can and will heal itself if function is optimized in the following five areas:
All symptoms and disease come from imbalances in the above-mentioned five areas. The following are examples of symptoms and disease caused by underlying imbalances:
An imbalance is defined as levels falling outside of the “optimal” range which means we do not utilize “normal” ranges for interpretation.
Are you in the “optimal” range?
Many patients are on medications that control symptoms without addressing underlying causes. Many of them have had lab tests reporting them to be in the “normal” range. The real question is whether they are in the “optimal” range.
It is important to note that optimal levels vary from person to person. In other words, what is right for me may not be right for you. The good news is that when the underlying imbalances are corrected and optimal levels are achieved, the body is protected against degeneration and you will experience happiness and the feeling of being revitalized.
What can you do to achieve optimal health?
I can guide you to restore your body to its prime functioning ability by addressing the five essential areas: hormones, nutrients, toxin clearance, mind and body. Together, we will achieve this by doing the following:
When you optimize the hormones and nutrients that protect your brain, bones, heart, breast/prostate, eliminate toxins and balance the mind/body connection, you can most certainly achieve optimal health and wellness from the inside out.
Dr. Chua is a board-certified neurologist with a special interest in Integrative Medicine. She completed her neurological training at Northwestern University and a fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Weil. Her focus is on taking care of the whole person, rather than treating a specific symptom, through nutrition, mind-body approaches, and balancing the neurohormonal, immune and digestive systems. She guides patients in discovering the body’s innate capacity to seek wellness, look for balance, and heal itself, and works as a partner in identifying treatment options that reflect a patient’s unique needs and life circumstances.
