How Are We Different?

An Individualized Approach As Unique As You Are!sm

At Human Nature Natural Health, we practice true holistic medicine. Our doctors draw freely from a variety of traditions and are not bound or limited by any single approach or paradigm. All are grounded in traditional, therapy-based naturopathy enhanced by the BioPhenotype theory, an understanding of your Elemental Type, as well as the new evidence-based approach to naturopathic medicine espoused by modern naturopathic schooling and research.

We consider ourselves to be a community resource when it comes to natural therapies. Our therapies are available not only to our patients, but we are glad to take referrals from other health care practitioners who may feel that their patients could benefit from the healing power of our array of modalities. The public is also invited to make use of our facilities. A screening visit with one of our doctors is the only requirement to make sure that the therapies you desire will be safe and beneficial for you.

Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment.

When a patient visits a doctor, the first question usually asked is, "What brings you here to see me today?" This is a question never asked in our Comprehensive New Patient Exam. The patient typically responds with a history of pain, limitation, disability, etc. These are all symptoms. If we treat the symptoms, you may feel better for a while, but the underlying problem hasn't been resolved. Once the treatment wears off, the symptoms return. Symptoms are not the problem, they are merely the body's method of letting you know that something is wrong. If we conduct our examinations without knowing the symptoms, it keeps our minds free to discover the underlying weaknesses that are actually causing the problem.

Our diagnostic methods lead us to information about the underlying problems that you won't find in many places. While we are versed in interpreting the latest laboratory and imaging findings offered by modern technical medicine, we are also adept in discovering valuable information from your body itself. Your pulse tells us about the current state of your body. Your biophenotype and constitution tell us much about you. There is information about the state of your inner organs that can be seen in the iris of your eye. Even your fingernails can tell us about your state of health. Pressure points on the abdomen tell us more. We gather all of this information before we know your history and symptoms. We can then focus our treatments on correcting the underlying problems as revealed in the examination.

Our method of treatment is different as well. We recognize that your health is inseparable from your way of living. If you wish to transform your health, transform your way of life. Our comprehensive treatment plans of dietary changes, exercise recommendations, nutritional supplements and natural therapies guide you in making changes that will bring about lasting health in abundance.

The difference is in the details. When you walk into our office, you will notice that the air seems as fresh as a mountain top. That's because of our investment in a sanuvox air treatment system, which destroys 99% of pollutants and biological contaminants in our air. We also invested in low volatile organic compound (VOC) construction and materials, so that people who are environmentally sensitive can feel safe and comfortable here, and all of our patients and staff can relax knowing that they are in a clean and pollutant-free haven that is dedicated to healing in a natural way.

The difference is in our staff. We have carefully drawn together a group of people who are dedicated to natural healing, and dedicated to service. Human Nature Natural Health exists to help you attain the best possible health. Our staff knows that we all, whether we're the person who answers your phone call or the doctor who prescribes your treatment plan, play a role in helping you achieve this goal.

To understand how the Air affects your physical, mental and emotional being, you need to consider the qualities of Air in nature. Air is essentially cold, dry, and light, floating above the Earth Air can have a very light touch as it gently passes over the objects in its path, or it can move with great force, as in a tornado or hurricane. Air as wind constantly changes speed and shifts direction. The wind cools, dries, scatters and erodes as it blows.

How to Recognize the Effect of Air on Your Physique: The stamp of the Air element on the physical body is of a dry quality leading to a bony, knobby thinness, as if the flesh and substance had dried up and eroded away. This effect becomes more prominent as we enter our later years. The cheekbones stand out on an elongated, narrow face. . The long, slender, sinewy neck connects below to prominent collar bones and a narrow chest. The shoulders, elbows, wrists, and knees protrude from the slender arms and legs. The hips are slender. The voice becomes hoarse when overused.

How to Recognize the Effect of Air in the Mind and Emotions: Air is both the contemplative aspect of the mind that brings inspiration, and the nervous agitation, fear, and anxiety. Often, these alternate within the same individual to varying degrees.
Air is the element that reaches to bring new insights, revelations, discoveries, and knowledge down to Earth. No matter the field, Air reaches high for its inspiration and creativity. Anyone with strong intuition has a connection to the Air element. Air is indispensable for refreshing or charging the world with new concepts and ways of doing things.

At the same time, the Age of Anxiety is most certainly the Age of Air. Because Air’s connection to the world and life is as tenuous and thin as Air itself, security seems an impossible dream. Air is preoccupied by and fascinated with ideas, concepts, theories, and philosophies, and takes them up eagerly only later to be plagued by doubt. None of them withstand Air’s restless scrutiny. Air always finds another explanation, another theory that seems equally plausible. The Air person tends to be mentally scattered, jumping from subject to subject. They sit down to a task determined to see it through, only to see their focus taken away by the sound of the ringing phone, or something they wanted to check online. They may stop in mid-sentence to concentrate on a new thought that pops into their mind. Their quick mind instantly understands what you want to say and impatiently wants you to finish your sentence, possibly finishing it for you.. Air forgets as quickly as it comprehends, and anything not written down runs the risk of vanishing forever from their consciousness.

The Air intellect can be lofty and expansive, but largely in a theoretical, academic way. They are the classic “book smart”, as their knowledge may be at once encyclopedic and superficial. The Air’s connection to their interior world is very strong, and the Air spends a lot of time day-dreaming, theorizing, and philosophizing.

Air people are easily overwhelmed and over-stimulated in groups of people, and often need to retreat to solitude to soothe the agitation of the nervous system. Air people tend to be very delicate, sensitive, and aware. They frequently feel socially awkward and are often very self-conscious. They can spend hours ruminating over imagined slights and fretting over things they said or did.
Air people are restless and irritable, and often fidget and pick at themselves.. Air sits cross-legged with the dangling foot bouncing frantically in an attempt to discharge the excess nervous energy pulsing through their bodies.

Career Choices for Air People: Air people often have a gift for communication, and therefore are naturally suited to teaching and counseling. Those who have worked through their own fears or addictions make excellent guides for others. When Air is Balanced: An Air person achieves balance when the turbulent and chaotic aspect of Air is quelled and the pure, still, and clear attributes of Air are emphasized. This often requires a disciplined life with steady practices such as meditation and yoga. A balanced Air person is creative, intuitive, flexible, adaptable, and fAir. What causes Air Imbalances: An Air imbalance is created when the environment becomes too “Airy”. As Air is changeable (think here of the shifting of the wind), too many changes can bring about imbalance. This can be as simple as a change in the weather or climate, that naturally occurs during changes of season, especially as summer fades into autumn. Travel, whether for business or pleasure, always affects the Air system, as it increases the Air qualities of movement and change. Major life changes such as marriage, divorce, a new job, a move to a new home, and even minor changes can shift Air into imbalance. Stresses of all sorts are experienced in the Air system, and can lead to an Air overload. Too much communication, such as occurs with cell phones, text messages, emails, and TV watching increases the Air element’s imbalance. Overwork and over-stimulation, twin hallmarks of the modern era, aggravate the Air element. For people of the relatively delicate Air body type, heavy exercise, such as running to exhaustion to calm an over-stressed mind, also contributes to an Air imbalance.

How to Recognize Air Imbalances: The nervous system is the area to keep in mind when considering the way Air works in the function of your body – any nervous habit, hyperactivity, or anxiety is a sign of Air. Insomnia is often seen during times of Air disturbance, as the restless, relentless mind struggles to find the peace and relaxation required to drift into blissful sleep. The most frequently seen physical Air disorders occur in the digestion in the form of gas, bloating, abdominal cramps, and constipation with dry, hard stools. Rushing through meals, eating when upset, angry or nervous, or eating on the fly all contribute to the formation of gas and bloating.

The hands and feet of the Air person are often cold, naturally more so in the cold seasons. Spasms, tremors, tics and twitches are all disturbances of the Air in your body. Excess Air working in the skin causes flakiness, dryness and cracks,. Air imbalances that frequently accompany aging include hardening of the arteries, osteoporosis, balding, wrinkling and thinning of the skin, and liver spots. Irregular heart rhythms and palpitations may result from excess Air, especially as fear often accompanies and aggravates this condition.
How to Remedy Air Imbalances: Air is balanced by foods, therapies and lifestyle choices that oppose its natural dry, light, cold, shifting tendencies. The word “grounding” sums up the gist of the following recommendations. In general, the Air –dominant person needs to cultivate a lifestyle that deliberately creates stability, calm, and peace, all natural qualities of the Earth element. There should be a daily routine in place that introduces a steady rhythm into life to counter the erratic nature of Air.

Resolve to awaken early to allow ample time for all the things that need to get done before the work day commences.The morning is the most peaceful time of day, and it is an excellent start to get outdoors for a morning walk or other exercise and fill your lungs, eyes and ears with the clarity and peace that this time offers. A period of meditation, prayer, contemplation, yoga or t’ai Qi will help to cement the feeling of centeredness and peace into place before the craziness of the work day begins. Once the dinner dishes are done at the end of the day, the evening should be devoted to winding down toward a peaceful night of sleep.. Foods that are warm, dense and moist counter the effects of Air, such as a bowl of oatmeal, rice, steamed vegetables, or soup

Fire is the source of heat and light, as well as being the agent of transformation, the driving force behind change. Fire lights the way; it is indispensable. Yet, at the same time, there is no other element with such potential for destruction and ruin. How to Recognize the Effect of Fire on Your Physique: The Fire-dominant person has a medium build, with smooth contours to the trunk and limbs. In youth, the Fire person is lithe, flexible and agile. The Fire may put weight on later in life, but loses weight rapidly if they exercise and watch food intake. The face is shaped like a heart, rather more full than the long face of the Air person, but not as round or heavy as the Water and Earth types. The eyes are piercing and bright, and may seem to have the uncomfortable ability to look within you. The voice is sharp, loud, and penetrating, commanding attention. The appetite for food, experiences, adventures, and excitement can be ravenous.

How to Recognize the Effect of Fire on the Mind and Emotions: Just as Fire in the outer world is both a boon and bane, so too is Fire in the inner realms of mind and emotion. Fire is enlightenment, illumination, and radiant brilliance. It also can be rage, hatred, greed, envy, and the desire for revenge. Tending to your inner Fire, maintaining its warmth and illumination without letting its destructive, rapacious aspect control your life is of the utmost importance for the Fire person. Fire will always burn to the limit of its fuel and oxygen supply. Learning to regulate and temper your inner Fire is your task.

Fire is desire. It is motivation, ambition, and zest for living. It’s the spark that ignites your passions. Fire is fun. It’s the "Fire in the belly" that wants to win. It’s the "Fire in the eye" that sees the prize and wants it. It spurs athletes to greater heights. It spurs leaders to want positions of power and authority. Anger, irritability, impatience, and frustration are common indicators of the Fire within. The Fire person wants action, wants to make things move and change. Bureaucracy, red tape and cautious proceedings are anathema to them. Under stress their head turns red, the veins on the temple bulging and the blood pressure shooting up.

The Fire mind is capable of clear, perceptive, and discriminating judgment. It can digest and synthesize large amounts of material. The words "bright" and "brilliant" as used to describe intellect are Fire references. Fire can be extremely focused as it acquires knowledge and works inexorably toward its goals. If tempered and balanced, the Fire intellect can produce a noble presence. Often, however, The Fire’s judgments are harsh and critical, especially of themselves. They deliver their judgments in scathing attacks, and love to argue and win. They are articulate and excel at persuasion. This type of intellect dominates in the fields of law, science, and engineering.
Fire people are iconoclastic. They reject traditions that don’t serve them. They want to blow up the old and bring on a new, better way. They see change as progress, especially if it helps them attain a goal.

Where Air is theory, Fire is practice. Air has the visions and dreams; Fire makes them reality. Fire loves the process of planning and doing, as long as things move smoothly along. Fire loves to mix it up in the world, to do things better and faster, and has the ability to pull it off. They invent new technology if the old doesn't work or gets in the way. Fire wants to be the center of attention, and often is. They love awards and prominence and making speeches. They wants notoriety for their achievements and gifts. Fire wants to be seen and talked about, and dresses in a way to draw attention.They want to lead, and indeed, are well-suited to it.
Career Choices for Fire People: Fire people enjoy material gain, action, and recognition. They excel as leaders, administrators, and directors. They can make tough decisions, love to argue and are persuasive, making them ideal for politics and also for leadership in the armed forces. As scientists, designers, architects, and engineers, they can make use of their focus and intellect. They are the courageous pioneers who excel as entrepreneurs. They excel also at research into new technologies and applications for science. Since they enjoy competing and debating, they do well in the practice of law.

When Fire is Balanced: Fire becomes balanced when the flames of passion are cooled, and the radiance of the light emerges. This often requires maturity, discipline, and hard work on the part of the Fire person. Balanced Fire people possess focus, judgment, understanding, and reason. The Fire element comprises the Divine Fire that produces spiritual illumination and enlightenment. It is also the brilliance of scholarship and erudition.

What Causes Fire Imbalances: Fire people slip out of balance most easily in the Fire season – summer. Hot spicy foods, sour and salty foods can contribute to imbalance. Coffee, alcohol (FireWater) and recreational drugs aggravate the internal Fire. Conflict and competition bring out the Fire in the Fire person, as does praise and reward for winning.

How to Recognize Fire Imbalances: When the inner Fire becomes too hot, predictable consequences follow. The appropriately named heartburn is probably the most common physical symptom. Ulcers are another condition of excess Fire in the belly. Red, angry rashes, fevers and all inflammatory conditions come under the Fire heading. High blood pressure often results from prolonged excesses of Fire.

How to Remedy Fire Imbalances: In some ways, Fire is the hardest element to balance, because Fire often enjoy the way they are. Fire people love to excel in what they do and . activities, foods and practices that balance Fire may seem boring. Fire people should seek cooling of their Fire on all levels. Non-competitive swimming is an excellent exercise for Fire. All exercise should be done for "burning off" excess energy, and not for competition or getting a runner’s high. Foods should be cooling, especially green vegetables and appropriate fruits. Fire people are balanced by quiet and contemplative activities. They need to consciously gear down in the evening, and avoid the temptation to get an edge by working zealously into the night.

Water is flexible and compliant; it adapts to the shape of whatever container holds it. Water clings to itself, which is why rain falls as drops. In the elemental scheme, Water is the carrier of emotion, and the glue that binds the world together. The Water Element includes all bodily fluids with the ability to flow, and the tendency to collect together.

We all have very compelling evidence of Water this: our own salty tears. Many people have learned to habitually stuff our emotions away, which in effect dams up the Waters within. When the dam gives way and the tears finally flow, we get to feel the power of the Water that holds our true emotions.

How to Recognize the Effect of Water on Your Physique: The skeletal frame of the Water person is fairly substantial, but the musculature is not overly developed. The Water person tends to put on weight that is very soft. The face is round and the arms often lack firmness or definition. For the Water person may find it very hard to remove weight once it is put on. The expressive features of the face are prominent, with soft, Watery eyes and full lips. The voice is smooth, soft and melodious.

How to Recognize the Effect of Water on the Mind and Emotions: The experience of the Water person is dominated by feelings. They are less interested in abstract conversation and long-term objectives, than in how they are feeling at the moment. They like to relax, be comfortable, and “go with the flow”.

The Water person’s life is built around family and friends. Entertaining and serving a delicious meal to others is important. Their feelings are very tied to how the important people in their lives are doing right now. The Water person is compassionate rather than competitive, and wants others to enjoy success as much as they do. When they ask how you are doing, it is out of genuine interest rather than mere courtesy, and they will listen and empathize with your complaints and problems.

Loyalty is very important to the Water person, whether to family, friends, or ideas. Once an idea, norm, cause or custom is adopted, it tends to become fixed.

The greatest gift of Water is unconditional love. Water Woman is the archetypal “Mother Earth”. They are nice to be around, even when they say nothing. It just feels good to be in their presence. If you know a person with genuine love for humanity in their heart, chances are Water is predominant in their makeup. Water can be tolerant and easy-going. “Live and let live” is a Water phrase.

On the flip side, Water people can be smothering with their love. While Water people often make wonderful parents, Water is also the parent who can’t cut the apron strings. They manipulate the family with their tears in order to secure compliance with their wishes. They wants her adult children present for every holiday, and use guilt to get their way. Their love can become needy and greedy.

Water is susceptible to depression. They feel as if they are under Water and drowning in dark emotion. The world becomes dark, and they want to stay in bed, or eat excessively to avoid their overwhelming feelings. Nothing interests them; it all seems so hopeless. They live by their feelings, and if their feelings are hurt by betrayal or insult, it seems too much to bear.

Career Choices for Water People: Water people find their center in the home, and are most likely to be content being a stay-at-home parent. Water also makes a good teacher, as it is patient, nurturing, and compassionate. Restaurant work is a good choice, but the restaurant should be a place where food is prepared and served with love. Water people often have a very keen sense of texture, aroma and taste when it comes to food. Many of the world’s top chefs, particularly those that cook without recipes and create interesting combinations of flavors, are Water types. Water people are often content with routine work as long as the setting and co-workers are pleasant, and they make up the rank and file of many organizations. Since Water flows in the realm of love and emotions, many artists and musicians.

When Water is in Balance: It is relatively easier for a Water person to find balance than it is for Air or Fire , the more volatile elements. Water is adaptable, molding itself to whatever container in which it finds itself. The balanced Water person is loving, kind, easy-going, and tolerant above all, heeding the motto, “Live and let live.”. They have a sensuous relationship with food, and love to gather friends and family around a delicious meal. They are compassionate, and cares for all creatures and the Earth itself.

What Causes Water Imbalances: Water people often have trouble dealing with late winter and spring, when they are prone to colds, flu, and sinus congestion. They may feel particularly lethargic at this time of year, and simply can’t wait for spring and warm weather to come and balance their cold, boggy natures. Oversleeping can create Water imbalance, as Water tends to stagnation if not stimulated. Overeating causes similar problems. A lack of structure in the schedule, and an absence of activity lead to lazy days in front of the TV for many Water types.

How to Recognize Water Imbalances: The most common Water imbalance is obesity, with all of its attendant problems of heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc. Water types are particularly susceptible to conditions of excess phlegm in the respiratory tract, such as asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, colds and flu. Cysts are common in the breasts and ovaries for the Water woman. Depression is common for the Water type who has experienced excess emotional pain. The digestion can be slow and heavy, and nausea and constipation are a problem for many Water types. The constipation differs from Air constipation in that the stools are moist rather than hard and dry.

How to Remedy Water Imbalances: Water people need to stay active and stimulated. Intellectual and physical activities are a must. Working up a good sweat through heavy exercise is beneficial, as are saunas and steam baths. The diet should be light and stimulating, high in appropriate vegetables and low in carbohydrates and animal proteins, with moderate spices and no salt. Water people frequently love their homes, and benefit from exerting themselves in the care and maintenance of the home and yard.

Once crossed, however, they will hold a grievance with the same tenacity that they apply to their goals.

Career Choices for Earth People: The ideal career choice for the Earth person has often to do with the secondary element in the profile. For example, an Earth-Fire person will generally be more motivated to start up a business with an idea toward establishing a lasting legacy that they can pass down to their children. When Water is the secondary element, they will generally be more easy-going. In this case, working with food and running a restaurant may be appealing. Many very fine chefs are of the Earth and Water types, as these groups enjoy an intense relationship to foods, textures, aromas, and flavors. If Air is well represented, they may be drawn to the arts, especially music. Not surprisingly, Earth types like to work the land, and make up a good proportion of farmers.

The obesity of Earth is somewhat different, as the Earth frame conveys an impression of strength and force even when excess weight is present. Earth is also susceptible to a dark, apathetic type of hopeless depression where every exertion seems not only monumental, but meaningless. In such cases there is a tendency to overeat and oversleep.

These molecules play many roles in the function of your cells, and therefore in the function of you as a whole, including what foods are right and wrong for you, what type and how much exercise you need, and even in the way your mind processes information. The BioPhenotype tells us much about you, and acts as a guide in making your prescription of diet, exercise, supplements and therapies.

BioPhenotype A corresponds with blood type A.
The greatest strength, and at the same time the greatest weakness, is the mind and nervous system.
BioPhenotype F corresponds with blood type O.
High animal protein consumption and heavy exercise are both necessary to keep healthy.
BioPhenotype G corresponds with blood type B.
In the middle between the A and F. An analytical type, balance in diet and lifestyle is the key health.
BioPhenotype AG corresponds with blood type AB.
The most rare of the types, this is a combination of A and G types.

Bear in mind that we are all unique individuals and the extent to which the descriptions ring true depends on many factors, such as your upbringing, and your current state of health.

Every cell in your body is surrounded by a membrane that is coated with specific chemical markers, called glycoproteins. Collectively, these markers are called the glycocalyx, or sugar coating, by biologists; chemical sugar molecules projecting out from the surface of every cell. Biologists are interested in them because they are discovering that they play key roles in the functions of the cell and your body as a whole. These sugar molecules intermingle as cells touch each other, and every molecule that enters the cell, be it nutrient or chemical pollutant, contacts them first. They are known to affect cell to cell communication, and they interact with the immune system as well.

We at Human Nature Natural Health are also interested in them, as we have learned to use knowledge of some of these sugars as a guide in learning about you and how your body functions. You may already be familiar with one aspect of it - your blood type is actually a cell surface sugar, a chemical marker found on each cell. You have up to two million molecules of your blood type sugar per cell, and even free floating in the blood, saliva and every fluid in your body. Research in the medical literature has recognized since the 1920's that there is a difference in distribution of certain diseases according to the different blood types.

Your BioPhenotype

ABOUT YOUR BIOPHENOTYPE

BioPhenotype is a term coined by Human Nature Natural Health to refer to the functionally critical coating of molecules that project from the surface of every cell in your body. As each individual is unique, this coating, which is involved in cell-to-cell communication and many other activities in the body, is also unique to you. By testing your blood, we are able to determine whether some key molecules are present or not. At present, we are most concerned with the carbohydrate or sugar molecules that define your blood type. Research is ongoing with other key markers.

You have about one to two million of these sugar markers on the surface of all of your cells, not just the blood cells, and sometimes a much smaller amount of other blood type molecules on each cell. Your BioPhenotype comes into play whenever cells touch each other, as the surface molecules of neighboring cells intermingle to form a network. Additionally, all substances that enter the cell, including foods, touch the BioPhenotype molecules before being taken in by the cell. It follows that these molecules play many roles in the function of your cells, and therefore in the function of you as a whole, including what foods are right and wrong for you, what type and how much exercise you need, and even in the way your mind processes information. The BioPhenotype tells your doctor much about you, and acts as a guide in making your prescription of diet, exercise, supplements and therapies.

As you read through the descriptions of the various BioPhenotypes, concentrate first on the part that corresponds to your blood type. That will give the most information about you. Look next at your secondary BioPhenotype. As this portion of your BioPhenotype is smaller, you may find that some parts of the description seem pertinent, while others are less relevant.

BIOPHENOTYPE F
If your BioPhenotype is F, it means that that there are approximately one million fucose molecules on the surface of your cells. These are the sugar molecules that define the O blood type. The presence of fucose indicates a high need for dietary protein, including often generous portions of red meat such as bison and beef. However, there is at the same time a need for heavy aerobic, or cardio, exercise. If a person of this type attempts to consume red meat without exercising regularly, there may be a buildup of toxins in the blood, as the meat won’t be properly metabolized. If this is your type and you try to exercise without properly fueling your system with protein, there is a danger that you will run your body down rather than build it up. Both protein AND cardio exercise are important.

Exercise plays a vital role in the mental and emotional health of this type as well. This is not to say that people of the F type love exercise, many would much rather sit on the couch. Once you get going, however, you notice how good it feels to exercise, and you enjoy the pleasant, relaxed feeling that it brings when you are done. If done first thing in the morning, exercise can help keep you centered, balanced and focused throughout the day. Good, hard exercise brings clarity to the mind for this type. Long sitting brings about a comfortable sluggishness. Therefore, you will get the most out of your potential if you exercise daily, and interrupt long periods of sitting by getting up and moving periodically.

People of this type generally have the potential to be quickly decisive, but often lose their decisiveness through over-thinking their dilemmas, and asking others for their opinions. Learn to trust your gut instincts and follow your heart. You are born with a reliable guide in the feelings in your body. If you follow them rather than the distractions of your mind, you will find that the answers to seemingly difficult decisions can come to you swiftly and easily.

BIOPHENOTYPE A
This BioPhenotype corresponds with blood type A, and indicates the presence of one to two million N-acetyl-galactosamine (NAG) molecules dotting the surface of your cells. The greatest strength, and at the same time the greatest weakness, of this BioPhenotype is the mind and nervous system. When at peace, the mind is intuitive, creative, even visionary. The A mind answers questions quickly and cleverly. However, under stress and pressure, the A mind loses this ability, and there may be a tendency to say things you later regret. It is possible for BioPhenotype A’s to recognize when they are feeling pressured, as it typically produces a tightness in the pit of the stomach, just under the ribs. It is wise to learn to recognize this sign from your body, and use it as a signal to back away from the situation, and let the mind regain its composure before jumping in with an answer. You will find that if you wait until you are relaxed that your intuition will supply you with the clever answer to which you are accustomed.

Stress is at the root of many of the physical problems BioPhenotype A’s suffer with. The digestive organs tend to be delicate in function, and may produce many symptoms such as gas, bloating, irritable bowel, constipation and worse when there is stress. Likewise, stress tends to shorten and tighten the muscles, leading often to headaches and spinal pain. Learning to master the nervous system, to make the most of your natural strength through techniques such as meditation, yoga, tai chi and qi gong , is vital to the health and happiness of the A. A’s should not attempt to quiet their nervous systems with heavy exercise, as this only wears them down in the long run.

Healthy A’s have a limited need for dietary animal protein. As you get stronger, you will find that your doctor will tend to wean you off animal proteins to a great extent, and substitute vegetable proteins such as tofu, nuts and legumes. Dairy and wheat products are to be avoided by this type.

BIOPHENOTYPE G
The letter G denotes the presence of the glycoprotein D-galactosamine in the BioPhenotype. This type is commonly known as blood type B. People of this BioPhenotype tend to be analytical and methodical in their approach to problem solving. They have a natural affinity for order and systems, and are uncomfortable in work situations that are run haphazardly. They are easily bored by repetition, and enjoy seeking new challenges to stimulate their gift in problem solving. They do best when they have authority and free reign to put their talents to work, and are often quite successful in business. They are characterized by a sort of healthy skepticism that questions everything, and asks pointed questions until they thoroughly understand and are either in agreement or disagreement. They thrive when they run their own company or departments in larger firms and are able to creatively problem solve.
Many people of this type find that other people often quickly feel comfortable around them. You may find that strangers or people you barely know open up readily to you and listen to your advice. Many type G people are naturally drawn to counseling professions for this reason.

Exercise can be moderately vigorous for this type, although they are not quite as sturdy as people of the F BioPhenotype. Likewise, they can benefit from yoga or tai chi if they prefer. This same flexibility is seen in the diet, which can accommodate animal protein, although not in the same proportion as the F, or can tend more toward vegetarianism.

BIOPHENOTYPE AG
This somewhat rare type corresponds to blood type AB, where there are the sugars that define both the A and G BioPhenotypes in relatively equal proportions in the BioPhenotype. This type is seen as a sort of hybrid of A and G as described above. We look to see whether there is a predominance of either the A or G in the type, and treat accordingly on the scale between the two types.

Every system of traditional medicine has used pulse diagnosis as a method of assessing deeper information about how the organ systems are functioning.


Abdominal palpation is another tool that tells us about both dietary intake and inflammation in the digestive tract and abdominal organs.

Philosophy

Optimum health is a balance between
appropriate inputs and outputs to the system.

When we teach each person what's optimum for them,
they can make better, more balanced choices in their life.



Our understanding of the body;
the diagnostic techniques that we use;
the individualization of the diet, supplements and treatments;
are unique to HNNH.


No other clinic,
naturopathic, alternative or otherwise,
does what we do.

We have a 3-stage model of how the body works that guides us in understanding you. This model is a result of my experience over the last 20 years, combining my training and experience as a naturopathic doctor, a licensed acupuncturist, and various constitutional systems, BioPhenotype (blood type markers), Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

At the core is your Constitution, a combination of the BioPhenotype and Elemental Balance– who you are when you’re healthy, and therefore what we’re aiming for in your healing. We are not all the same, and without an understanding of what your core needs are, and where you’re heading towards, it’s impossible to know what the body needs to get healthy. Historically there were many healthy cultures that did different, almost contradictory things to stay healthy – how do we know which one should be your guide?

Next are the Organ systems – what’s functioning well, and what’s having difficulty are fundamental questions. If you don’t know where the weaknesses in the system are, you can’t know where to focus.

Finally, the Manifestation-Disease – what symptom is actually manifesting in the body as a result of the imbalances.

Once we have an actual understanding of why you have the condition, we can treat to help resolve it. There are 3 basic tools –
Diet, Supplements and Treatments.

Diet is core – but Diet is really baseline maintenance for the body. Proper Diet keeps the body healthy, but if there are weaknesses in the body, it isn’t enough to repair it.

Supplements are for repair – concentrated nutrients, whether as vitamins, herbs, or glandular help the organs and tissues of the body repair and heal.

Treatments to clean the body and repair organs – we use the widest array of treatments to clean/detoxify the body, and help strengthen weakened systems.

Asthma is a simple example to look at. We can give herbs and nutrients for asthma and people will get better, but they are still asthmatics taking our supplements to compensate for imbalances in the body. But if we apply our model to understand the body, we can potentially clear the condition completely. For one person eating dairy and a weakness in the Lungs might be the key, while for another, the Stomach and poor digestion is the cause.

So, if you want to heal your body’s weaknesses and experience yourself at an optimum level of health, our
Individualized Constitutional Medicinesm approach is the best way.
