Specializing in Precision, Functional & Preventative Medicine in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Natural Balance Wellness is a multidisciplinary medical center focused on Precision Functional medicine. Established in 2008, we are known nationally for our novel genetic-based approach to complex illness and preventive-wellness medicine for adults and children
Our team's passion is to help those suffering from puzzling health problems not yet resolved, as well as individuals seeking the highest level of genetic-based preventative & anti-aging medicine available.
Our clinic blueprint is to succeed where other clinics or approaches have failed to provide answers or bring relief.
We do not follow ANY prevailing paradigms related to your diagnosis per se, but rather we leave no stone unturned in discovering each person's genetic predispositions, current biological imbalances, and pre-disease or actual medical states. We then cross reference all factors to each other to provide our patients with the answers they have been seeking regarding symptoms, illness, and future predispositions.
We use medical, genetic, and neurological assessments combined with an array of other novel diagnostic tools to develop a treatment plan unique to you and your specific needs.
Our goal is to resolve ALL stressors (biological, environmental, psycho-emotional, or otherwise). Be it inflammation, infections, toxicity, nutritional deficiency, life hardships, etc, ALL stressors are central to one's health decline because they reveal our genetic weakness as we age and become constitutionally weaker over time.
We ALSO understand such stressors, biological imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies pull on both ends of our chains so to speak, and where we break is where we are genetically weak! For some people such breaking leads to autoimmune conditions, for others diabetes. Some will develop mood problems, hormonal issues, etc. Critical stressors during early development become cognitive and learning challenges, etc in our children. Often these conditions "run in the family." Sometimes they are unique to the individual with no family history otherwise.
The key to our success lies in addressing all such hidden imbalances, deficiencies, infections, inflammation, dysregulated immunity, etc., while ALSO addressing the underlying genetic weaknesses that allowed such illness and dis-ease to take hold in the first place. Essentially, we focus on fortification of your castle and the consequences of its fallen state on your quality of life, mood, energy levels, hormone balance, pain levels, etc (i.e. the misery factors). Our approach is truly wholistic rather than merely a lip service or tag line as such!
After reviewing all genetic and medical findings to your satisfaction, we will co-create a personalized plan of care with you which might include lifestyle-dietary modifications, nutritional supplements, modalities such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, detoxification sauna, neurofeedback, and any number of other treatment approaches available to us.
