“Why diseases don’t exist and what really makes you sick”

The title is quoted from Dr. Hyman’s recent blog. Dr. Hyman is a functional medicine doctor and mainstream well-recognized guru in the field of functional medicine. I encourage you to read this particular blog from top to bottom if:

  • You are 1 in 2 (yikes!) Americans that experience a chronic illness 
  • You have been give a name (chronic fatigue syndrome) for your illness, then it’s blamed (it’s because you have chronic fatigue syndrome) for your illness and then it was attempted to be tamed (here’s a medication).  
  • You don’t have results and are stuck in sickness.

My apologies if this comes across too harsh but the information is necessary.

Please read the blog here 

Always in your interest to be well,

Lynn

reeddavispicCome join Reed and I as we discuss the functional diagnostic nutrition approach to helping kids recover from health issues.

Learn why Reed Davis, began practicing nutrition and “labs”  with symptomatic individuals as far back as 20 years.  He is a pioneer as a practitioner, paving the way for an emerging specialty in functional diagnostic nutrition that merges clinical nutrition and functional medicine.

Reed Davis founded F.D.N.,Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® and has trained over 2,000 practitioners on how to practice with nutrition and labs.

In this interview :

  • learn why in F.D.N. we don’t ‘guess’ about systems, we ‘test’.
  • learn why Reed believes that good health is a ‘birth right’ and
  • the difference between symptoms and the importance of systems
  • what we can do as practitioners and as a parents to ensure great health.

Please listen to this podcast as Reed Davis shoots it straight and follow Kids Health 101 on iTunes.

rc1Welcome to Advocate for Healing.  

My name is Lynn Altieri-Need and I have one mission:

to help families find the tools they need so they can heal

You may find me discussing through podcasts, webinars and blogging:   Kids Health 101, Nutrition for Seizures, Stress Hormones and digestion as my main focuses but you’ll see by my testimonials that my training as a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner can help with nearly any symptom or illness that plagues an individual.   After all, I don’t treat the symptoms, I support the individual.  I don’t “guess”, I “test”. Come visit with me for a complimentary 30 minute consultation and be sure to sign up for updates on the right so you can be “in the know” of the most current knowledge available.



The best functional lab test for complex illnesses

sick

I hear so often from my clients that they’ve visited their doctor and that their lab tests are ‘normal’ or that they can’t find anything wrong even though my clients feel like crap (Diagnosis code ‘FLC’!).  In the functional world of nutrition we are looking less at symptoms and more at systems.  Hormones, the Immune system, digestion, detoxification, and neurotransmitters.  We are interested in stress hormones, sex hormones, the integrity of the digestive system, the backbone to energy (your mitochondria), the maximum ability to detoxify, nutritional deficiencies, the absorption of fatty acids, and if there are infections present.  It’s a multi-faceted approach targeted at one interest:  

Identifying the internal stressors and what supports need to be put in place.  

There is one test that can assess all of the above.  It’s referred to as the Organic Acids Test and it measures metabolism and assesses the body’s absorption of key nutrients.  It’s been invaluable in the field of biomedical intervention for application with:

Children with autism
Anxiety,
ADD,
Colitis
Digestive Issues
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Neurological Disorders
Seizure disorders
Movement disorders
Multiple Sclerosis
Alzheimers
Tic Disorders
OCD
Fibromyalgia
and so much more.

The great news is this test can be done in the comfort of your own home, via urine.  The kit can be shipped and the results come to me to evaluate and discuss.  You can read more about an organic acids test here.  Please note, an organic acids test ordered through an allopathic physician does not offer the same detail that a functional organic acid test offers. 

If you are experiencing any of the above disorders or want more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Stay tune for a webinar on this subject.

Be well,

Lynn

ADHD and ADD

“ADHD is a catchall diagnosis, into which the medical system too often tosses children who suffer from complex, metabolic disorders.  

ADHD has many diverse causes.

ADHD has many diverse remedies.”  Dr. Kenneth Bock author of Healing the New Childhood Epidemics  

Nutritional Deficiencies Self-Assessment

Nutritional Deficiencies

Welcome to the Nutritional Deficiencies assessment.  This assessment does not determine if a deficiency definitely exists but does provide guidance and information to share with your practitioner.  Nutritional Deficiencies are necessary in identifying needs of an individual experiencing any type of health problem.

Please complete the assessment to the best that you can. If you experience 3 or more of a symptom you may be experiencing a deficiency.  If you experience 5 or more of a symptom related to the vitamin/hormone/fatty acid, please consult with your practitioner.  

The results will be sent to me.  You will receive a copy as well.

I’m trained as a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner and will assist you with immune, digestive, detoxification, environmental stressors and neurotransmitters so be sure to add additional information that you think will be helpful.

You can reach me at the Contact Us page if you have any further questions.

Be well,

40 Healthy Gluten Free Lunch Ideas

lunch1

The Paleo Mom put together 40 healthy gluten free lunch ideas that trumps any other site I’ve seen.  It’s filled with pictures completing each meal with protein, fats and carbohydrates and VARIETY (something I severely lack in).  
Last year I implemented encouragement for my kids to make their own lunches the night before (thanks to my friend Annie).  I can see that they are lacking variety as well in building their lunches even though their enthusiasm remains.  I’m so looking forward to sharing these pictures with them.  Here’s a sample of one lunch with 39 to go.  Be sure to visit the site here.

 

Be well,

Lynn
