How We’re Different
Here at Lemont Natural Healthcare, we take time to listen to our patients.
We don’t rush you in and out. The initial history is an important part of the evaluation process as are your ongoing consultations. Most of our patients positively comment on how much time we spend with them. Our comprehensive forms and detailed consultations are necessary for the diagnosis and management of your condition.
We evaluate and manage the many different systems of the body and how they interact together. This is an important part of holistic therapy. You can’t just look a condition without also considering other factors affecting it like the immune system, the neurologic system, the digestive system, other hormones and diet and nutrition. Your neurologic system controls all other systems of the body. You can’t ignore the master system that controls all the functions of the body. We are one of the few clinics that add functional neurologic therapy into our health recovery programs.
At Lemont Natural Healthcare we evaluate and balance your digestive system.
Did you know, eighty percent of your immune system involves your gut? Your gut is a barrier that allows nutrients into the bloodstream and keeps toxins out. When this barrier is broken down, toxins leak into your bloodstream, which stresses your immune system. This is called intestinal permeability or Leaky Gut Syndrome. LGS is the precursor to autoimmune conditions. This must be diagnosed and managed to achieve maximum results. Also, any infections in the gut can weaken your immune system. Proper diagnosis and management of these infections is critical for relief. Finally, optimal levels of good bacteria, called probiotics, in the gut are essential for digestive immunity and the breakdown of food.
We customize a diet based on your individual lab tests. There are foods that everyone should eat and foods everyone should avoid. We create an individualized diet based on generalized healthy foods, foods that should be eaten or avoided based on your health concerns and specific foods that may be causing you an immune reaction based on lab tests. What about bread and pasta? That depends on your lab tests. We test for cross-reactive foods: foods that can cause an immune reaction like gluten. Also, we test for alternative grains. Gluten free breads and pasta have flours of quinoa, tapioca, rice, amaranth and others. What if you have an allergic reaction to any of these grains as well as gluten? We won’t guess, we will test these other grains and know for sure if you can eat them.
At Lemont Natural Healthcare we are diligent about finding the cause of your condition.
Once we know the cause, based on your lab tests, we will know exactly how to manage your condition to provide maximum relief of your symptoms. Holistic therapy involves finding the underlying cause of health problems, as well as evaluating and managing the different systems of the body and how they interact by using natural therapies that work with your body.
No one can cure an autoimmune disorder but we can balance it once we find the underlying cause.
Medications used to treat autoimmune disorders actually shut down your immune system. At first you may feel better but eventually you will get very sick because you have NO IMMUNE SYSTEM! Also, if you do not balance the immune system it can attack other tissues in your body and cause other autoimmune disorders. It’s much easier to prevent these other autoimmune disorders.
We evaluate and balance your nervous system.
Your nervous system is the master system of the body. It controls all other systems: the immune system, the digestive system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system. If you turn on a light switch and the light does not come on, you can replace the bulb or you may have to switch on the circuit breaker. If you just change the light bulb, you are just treating the symptom, when there may be underlying circuit breaker shut off. Addressing the circuit breaker is like addressing the nervous system, which is the master control system of the body. Evaluating and managing the nervous system is unique to our office and is critical for balancing and managing complex disorders.
