What We Treat:
Traditionally scientific developments can take up to 20 years to make their way into main-stream clinical medicine. Doctors Franiek and Shintani specialize in putting into practice the latest medical advancements. Having made the investment in advanced testing, these developments are available to the client at Healix Health, today. This ability allows Healix Health to successfully treat a wide variety of conditions including:
Menopause Andropause Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, PMS
Healix Health utilizes an integrative approach which considers the balance between adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones to diagnose and treat hormonal deficiencies. Using the most up to date comprehensive hormone testing to assess and optimize sex hormone levels for both men and women.
Fatigue, insomnia, inability to cope with stress, weight gain, overwhelmed, cognitive impairment
The effects of chronic stress impact many aspects of our health, including our mental functioning, energy levels, ability to cope with stress, sleep health, and mood. Treatment involves addressing lifestyle factors and the resulting hormonal imbalances that contribute to and perpetuate these problems.
Cold sensitivity, changes in bowel habits, hair loss, cognitive changes, fatigue
Functional thyroid assessment with comprehensive testing and treatment protocols aimed at specific dysfunctions in the synthesis and metabolism of thyroid hormones.
High blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, metabolic syndrome
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and morbidity facing us today. Success will be measured in our ability to prevent cardiovascular morbidity, rather than just treating established disease. Using advanced lipid testing to assess current cardiac status and risk, and then proactively addressing the factors contributing to cardiac dysfunction.
Hypertension, increased blood sugar, cholesterol abnormalities and excess body fat.
Metabolic Syndrome, a combination of laboratory and physical abnormalities that increases our risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dementia and death. Healix provides a comprehensive assessment of early laboratory abnormalities, to prevent the development of metabolic syndrome and its consequences.
Optimal Gut Function
Acid reflux, IBS, Inflammatory bowel disease, cramps, bloating, bowel changes, and gas
We are not what we eat, but rather what we absorb. Gut dysfunction along with its concominant nutrient malabsorption leads to a variety of gut related symptoms, but it is also the leading cause of systemic inflammation. Systemic inflammation is now being considered as the main culprit in the development of chronic diseases such autoimmune disease, cancer, heart disease, and dementia.
Cognitive decline, brain fog, poor memory.
How your brain functions is an important determinant of your overall health and quality of life as you age. Our brain health can be compromised by physical injury, toxin exposure, psychological stress, inflammation, hormone imbalances and hereditary predispositions. We provide individualized assessments and interventions to improve cognitive function.
Uncovering Functional Nutritional Deficiencies
Comprehensive laboratory assessment to uncover "functional" nutritional deficiencies. Deficiencies that occur not only as a result of inadequate intake and absorption of nutrients, but also those that result from an increased functional need. Our individual functional need for specific nutrients are dependent upon our environmental toxin exposure, comorbid diseases and genetic variations in our body's innate ability to detoxify the chemicals we are exposed to.
