We must remember that our bodies hold onto all of our life experiences and emotions. It is a crucial aspect of treating the whole person. There are three areas where chronic illness stems: chemical, mechanical, and emotional.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR HEALTH
My method of Chiropractic treatment has evolved with practice and experience. After years of working with patients and discovering that pain is not always mechanical, I began identifying patterns with my patients. Certain patients were experiencing pain that would not heal with physical medicine. My methods included diving deeper into potential underlying causes, looking at internal, biochemical patterns along with emotional burdens and past traumas. Once these areas were addressed, the areas of pain healed!
I began taking Functional Medicine courses while in school to get my Doctorate. Weekends were spent learning about autoimmunity, gut health, neurology, and blood chemistry. I worked in a Functional Neurology and Functional Medicine clinic for 1.5 years while in school getting real-life exposure to patient experience and on-sight lab analysis. Functional Medicine education is an ongoing process between continuing education and patient experience. My current weekends are still spent learning, while also educating the public! It is a fun and rewarding profession to help people on a deeper level.
I am a Board-Certified 100-hour Acupuncturist here in Colorado. I was taught Traditional Acupuncture along with adjunct therapies, such as electroacupuncture, dry needling, and Chinese cupping. Looking at your health from both a Western and Eastern perspective allows a comprehensive approach to treatment

How would you describe Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of your illness, looking at each system in the body as interconnected. It is a personalized, patient-centered model of care. Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic diseases. There are three elements that we always address when an individual is seeking health and wellness-physical, chemical, and emotional. At Katas Health, we utilize bloodwork and lab analysis as a way to track your progress and improvement.
