We Can Help You Achieve a Healthier Immune System!

The immune system is the key to keeping the body active, keeping it healthy, keeping it growing and not deteriorating as the years go. So at Mountain Health, we take a look at your entire body. We take a look at the central nervous system first –  to determine whether or not there’s disc malfunction or as we call it, subluxation, which is an interference with the nerve that can have effects on different organ systems, different muscle systems and different hormone systems and the immune system itself. So that’s where we begin.

From there, we take a look and see what you’re actually eating, what you’re drinking, what your habits are. Are you moving? Because often times, we find that there are a lot of things that need to be changed.

There are reasons why an immune system becomes weakened. It’s because the body is not getting either the nutrients, the hydration, the exercise that it needs. Or there’s an interference within the nervous system itself.

So when all of those factors are evaluated, we look at it more from a functional medicine approach as opposed to looking at okay we have this symptom here … what can we do to fix that?

A better question is, Why do we have that symptom there in the first place?  What is it that’s creating it? What pathways within the body are malfunctioning? Acting like a check engine light on your vehicle to say, Hey, there’s something wrong here and I’m giving you this symptom because you’re not working the way that you’re supposed to.

Your body is no different than your vehicle. You can ignore it and hope that the ‘check engine light’ goes away. Usually it doesn’t. Something else can start to malfunction and then you’ve really got to make some changes.

We try and eliminate the need for that. Anything that we can do to keep out of a crisis situation is what we’re going to be looking at. So once we have all the evaluation done, then we can make changes. It may be adjustments; it may be the use of technology like cold laser; it may be supplementation and nutraceuticals that are required. It may be an exercise program. It may be some yoga, some meditation. The list of things is extensive.
