Functional Medicine in Arlington
At ReAlign we believe in helping even those individuals who are suffering from chronic diseases. Dr. Demon Spraberry, CPT, FNS, CFMP continues his passion in the field of health and wellness by specializing in Functional Medicine. This new branch of health care, addresses the underlying cause of diseases, using a systems approach and engaging both the patient and doctor. Unlike traditional medicine where doctors look at “signs and symptoms” functional medicine goes far beyond and investigates the entire body for “the why” of the disease.
When the cause of the disease is located healing and improved health can begin. You will receive patient-centered care, a comprehensive examination and a complete review of medical history with diagnostic testing (if needed) to aid in the evaluation and location of the cause of the chronic disease. Afterwards, a treatment plan will be designed to help start the road to recovery and awesome health.
How is Functional Medicine Different?
Integrated Medical Practices: Functional medicine combines traditional practices with alternative and integrative medicine. This means we focus on not just treatment but prevention through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. Supplementation and stress management also play an integral part in functional medicine.
Care Centered Around the Patient: Treatments are tailored to the individual needs of the patient rather than the symptoms themselves. This allows us to gain a better knowledge of the patient’s story and history allowing us to provide the best care possible. Functional Medicine enables our clinic to practice proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
The Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a mind-body approach to help stress related conditions. Developed in the early 1980s by Scott Walker, DC, NET is a psychosomatic stress reduction intervention procedure aimed at improving health.
Dr. Walker developed a procedure (later to be called the Neuro Emotional Technique) using a specific chiropractic adjustment that achieved unprecedented results in dealing with the mind-body stress component of health. Encouraged by fellow chiropractors who were also seeing these dramatic improvements, the NET Seminar trainings were officially launched in May of 1988.
During the 1990s the Walker’s Home Run Formula was developed as a comprehensive model to address various components of overall well-being: Emotional mind-body stress (NET), Toxins (homeopathic support), Biochemistry (nutrition) and Structural factors. After years of clinical testing, Dr. Walker also produced homeopathic formulas that were made available in 1994 to specifically support the meridian therapy aspects of the NET process.
