At Tao of Venus, we practice what’s called Functional Medicine. Functional medicine involves taking all aspects of a person’s history into account (not only biochemical and physical but emotional, social, and environmental). It also involves giving the best, most effective care, not the care that drug companies and insurance companies want us to provide, but actually providing the best care available. This requires reading medical and scientific literature “between the lines” with the knowledge that the most effective therapies often aren’t the most popular.
We are dedicated to educating ourselves as healthcare practitioners so we can provide you with the best, most up-to-date, most unbiased and most effective care possible.
Physical and environmental aspects we measure include genetics, blood chemistry, stool testing, toxin testing, immune testing, hormone testing, food sensitivities and much, much, more.
We care for you holistically and get to the core of your emotional experience and health symptoms so we can guide you in the process of healing to living a vibrant life.
We (and functional medicine practitioners in general) also understand that magic bullets are few and far between. You need a healing plan, not just a patented, synthetic chemical in a pill to mask your symptoms. You want to really heal. And you need dedicated time spent on your case to find real answers, not a quick 10-minute conversation and a slip of paper with a prescription on it.
At Tao of Venus, we aim to give you the care you need, with the level of deep investigation required and the time spent giving you education, support, and solutions that actually work… from the inside out.
