PLAN FOR A BETTER YOU.

PrivaMD |Wellness specializes in Functional Medicine practice and services where you can create measurable progress toward personal health and wellness goals so that you can achieve optimal health.  Functional Medicine is a biological systems–based approach that focuses on identifying the root cause of a symptom and/or a disease.   With this approach, a diagnosis is always viewed in light of one’s genes, environment, nutrition, and lifestyle.  Therefore, careful consideration of all factors that impact your health is essential.

Functional Medicine practitioners realize the importance of:

+ Taking a customized approach to treatment.
+ Taking the necessary time to deeply understand your specific health drivers.
+ Placing a strong emphasis on preventative care.

Your first visit with your health coach takes about an hour where you’ll go through the Living Matrix Assessment in order dive deep to discuss your health history, your goals, and any concerns you may have.

Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a revolutionary treatment method that offers healing from physical and emotional pain and physical disease. Without the use of needles, this form of acupuncture uses the fingertips to stimulate energy points on the body. EFT works by tapping on acupressure meridians to release blockages while voicing your concerns and bringing in positive affirmations. When these blockages are released, you restore your mind/body balance for optimal health and healing.

Infrared Sauna

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. Near, mid, and far infrared saunas work by emitting a certain bandwidth of energy that resonates with the water and organic cells of the body. This pulsating of water molecules causes an increase in core temperature, which mobilizes the lymphatic system. Studies show that saunas help detoxify and stimulate metabolism. Regular use can aid in weight loss and improve longevity by using a heat to activate heat shock proteins that prevent cellular damage. A combination of near, mid and far infrared can boost immune health, lower blood pressure and aid in wound healing.

Food Sensitivity Testing

Food Sensitivity testing measures your body’s IgG immune response to foods that are commonly found in western diets. A food reactivity is different than an immediately life-threatening food allergy. It’s a delayed immune response by the Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody, the most abundant circulating antibody in our immune system. Studies suggest that an IgG immune response may contribute to headaches, joint pain, eczema, gut malabsorption, and other chronic conditions. An improvement in food sensitivity symptoms such as eczema, IBS, brain fog, and pain after eliminating the triggering food source make this test an ideal information gathering tool.

It vibrates at a specific frequency to activate your hormonal, cardiovascular, lymphatic and nervous system simultaneously. Your muscles contract and relax to create the feeling of exertion.
