5 Pillars of Health 2018-03-06T16:02:02+00:00

Our mission at weMED Wellness is to find and correct the underlying cause of your health conditions.

We “test, not guess” with regular testing for multiple hormones over the course of a day, nutritional and food intolerance, gut flora composition, and intestinal parasites. Then we design your program based on those test results, along with your nerve, circulation, and meridian examinations to create your Traditional Chinese Medical Diagnosis.

The Five Pillars of Health guide us in striving for and achieving total health. The Five Pillars are:

  1. Nutrition
  2. Detoxification
  3. Hormone Balance
  4. Fitness
  5. Brain Health

Nutrition

The Nutrition Pillar includes the foods you eat and how your body processes nutrients to support your biological functions. You need the highest quality nutrition to have the healthiest possible version of yourself. If you are experiencing allergies and sinus problems, weight issues, declined strength, cancer, heart disease, or chronic illnesses, you need to make sure that your nutrition pillar is as strong as it can be.

When you eat properly and your body processes nutrients correctly, your body weight evens out, you see improvements in the quality of your hair, skin, and nails, your mood improves, and you sleep better. Sugar cravings reduce, and energy increases. Additionally, The Nutrition Pillar supports the other pillars by preventing inflammation from blocking the nervous system, aiding in your body’s natural detoxification process, supporting your exercise routine, promoting clear thoughts and improved brain activity, and protecting your body’s production of serotonin and dopamine.

  • Digestive Health & Nutrition

Over the past decades, one of the most significant discoveries in medical science concerns the balance of gut flora in the human body and how the gut is like a second brain. Research now points towards healthy microbiota for reversal of weight gain, hormonal dysregulation, and fatigue. Fixing your body’s bacterial diversity can reverse chronic disease and inflammatory processes.

There are over 500 million neurons associated with the digestive tract, and they are responsible producing 90% and 50% of the body’s serotonin and dopamine levels, respectively. Now we understand why our “gut feeling” is so right! A happy gut comes with a happy mood, restful sleep, and good energy. We know the key to digestive health, which is why our program is effective and medication-free. Many of our clients have seen a fantastic reversal of their ailments, finding relief from autoimmune diseases, hormone imbalance, chronic fatigue, and obesity.

Fitness and Meditation

The Fitness and Meditation Pillar ensures your physical strength and the health of your muscles, tissues, and vital organs. To achieve strength and healthy organs, you must give your body enough oxygen and a robust circulatory system. If you suffer from stress or anxiety, weight gain, loss of strength and flexibility, loss of coordination, hormonal imbalance, stroke recovery, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, any chronic conditions, or the inability to stay awake, strengthening your Fitness and Mediation Pillar will give you relief.

When your Fitness and Meditation Pillar is healthy, you will notice decreased stress levels, increased energy, higher quality sleep, and stable moods. Additionally, a stable Fitness and Meditation Pillar helps regulate your hormones and associated processes. It encourages a healthier state of equilibrium by aiding in detoxification. It also supports Nutrition, which provides the nutritional building blocks to repair muscle and gain strength during exercise.

Hormones

The Hormones Pillar balances and regulates the chemicals that control your body’s processes. Without balance, hormones can interfere with your body’s functions. Poor sleep, lack of restorative sleep, aggressive thoughts and behaviors, food cravings, unexplained hunger, dips in energy, thyroid disease, menstrual irregularities and reproductive issues, digestive problems, memory loss, mood changes, and brain fog are all signs that you need to pay more attention to your Hormones Pillar.

When your Hormones Pillar is in harmony, you improve your tolerance for stress, sleep better, have more energy throughout the day, experience enhanced reproductive function, regain sharp mental focus, and control your eating habits. Off-balance hormones often indicate the underlying causes of weight gain or nutritional deficiencies, which directly impact the strength of your Nutrition Pillar. Hormone levels also support your body’s detoxification processes, build up your nervous system, and give you more energy to invigorate your Fitness and Meditation Pillar.

Detoxification

The Detoxification Pillar prevents dangerous toxins from accumulating in your body and inhibiting the function of different organs. Detoxification works through your body processes to eliminate toxins, using processes from exhaling to excretion. If you have constipation, inflammation, a large belly, regular brain fog, difficulty concentrating, aches and pains, chronic health conditions, or cancer, then your Detoxification Pillar needs some work.

With a robust Detoxification Pillar, you will see inflammation disappear, bloated stomachs shrink, joint stiffness clear up, and belly fat recede. Bowel movements will become more regular, and symptoms of chronic conditions will become less severe.  A strong Detoxification Pillar helps the Nutrition Pillar by eliminating toxins that block nutrient absorption, the Nervous System Pillar by reducing toxins that sabotage communication between nerves, the Fitness and Mediation Pillar by increasing energy, and the Hormones Pillar by supporting your body’s crucial production of serotonin and dopamine, which regulate brain function.

Nervous System

The Nervous System Pillar manages brain function and the interchange between your brain and your nerves, which your brain uses to control every single bodily function. If you experience symptoms like mobility difficulty, difficulties with motion, weak motor skills, loss of strength, and flexibility, tremors, memory issues, moodiness, you need to strengthen this pillar.

With a well-functioning Nervous System, you sleep well, experience lighter moods, enjoy enhanced memory and sharper focus, suffer fewer aches and pains, and enjoy improved strength, flexibility, and coordination. You might even see benefits to your digestive, cardiovascular, and circulatory systems. The Nervous System Pillar controls the other pillars–you can’t improve your fitness, regulate your hormones, or enjoy the effects of healthy detoxification without it. In turn, the Nervous System Pillar is dependent on both detoxification and nutrition to shield the brain from toxins and produce essential hormones that impact your mood, memory, and sleep.
