Website Launch!!!

It is finally complete!!!! Many of you know several years ago I set out on a quest to find natural healing for my youngest son. I gave up my company of nine years and went back to school to obtain a BS in psychology with an emphasis in substance abuse and now obtaining a Masters in clinical nutrition centered in Functional Medicine. I have finally completed my website today and I have never been more ready to launch our non-profit than I am today.

We would like to ask you if you could find it in your heart to help share our site so we can get our message out to others. Mental health and addictions touch many of our lives in one way or another. Astounding Victory Over Intoxicating Drugs (AVOID) offers a long standing viable scientific solution to combating the horrific side effects that come with these diagnoses.

A.V.O.I.D. is a non-profit organization who Advocates, Educates, and works with clients and their families to uncover root causes for those who suffer with mental/emotional and addiction struggles. We offer a Functional Medicine solution by considering nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle factors that often are at the root cause of the individuals symptoms.

We offer biomedical testing for a wide range of symptoms. These types of test uncover root causes in metabolic pathways where there could be a blockage that hinders the pathways too effectively and efficiently function in an optimal manner.

Most all modern day psychotherapy is treated by observation, with the assumption that the patient has a brain chemical imbalance based on a set of symptoms, hence the reasons for some of the psychotropic drugs, such as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs). Nevertheless, a functional medicine practitioner believes the gut holds a very critical piece to the underlying causes of symptoms related to mental health. Additionally, research suggests there is a variety of lifestyle, environmental and nutritional imbalances that may be the driving force behind the individual’s symptoms. We are not so much what we eat, but we are more about what we do or do not absorb. We do not believe nutrition alone is the sole culprit behind mental health or any disease or disorder, but we do believe it is a very essential piece to the puzzle. Yes, we believe HAPPINESS begins in the gut! We also believe there are other possible causes to the development of mental health symptoms. Working with a functional medicine practitioner can help you navigate through the symptoms to find the probable root cause.
