What Makes Us Different

We are not your typical healthcare clinic. Instead, we specialize in integrating aspects of Functional Neurology, Endocrinology and Immunology...

We take the most cutting-edge knowledge in Functional Neurology, Clinical Nutrition and Functional Endocrinology and Immunology to approach a patient's health.

Practice Gears

It is the integration of these 3 disciplines that is the KEY to what makes us very different.

In fact looking at these three areas of a patient's health is something that very few clinics around the world do!

We're committed to looking at the causes, not just symptoms. And we think that personal attention plus thorough diagnosis can lead to the most effective customized plan possible.

So please allow us to kindly, but firmly say…"If you're looking for a quick fix or a superficial diagnosis, please look elsewhere."

We don’t rely on the medical opinions of others to guide treatment.

Instead, we start from the beginning, working with patients to get a good picture of their past, present, and future health before embarking on the road to lasting well-being.


Essentially, we bring together ALL aspects of a person's health to determine the best way to get results in the shortest amount of time.

We truly are a category of one in that we are one of the very rare places in the world that actually looks at all aspects of health. Our treatment is not "hocus pocus". We provide evidenced based results you can measure.

3 MAIN reasons Wellness Institute is different:

1. We focus on the brain-body connection

It's simple science really—the brain controls our body, and our body provides feedback to the brain. When this relationship breaks down, so can your health. We work with patients to identify and address these discrepancies. So, when you have an issue, condition or health problem... we locate the issue in the body and see how it is tied to the brain.

If you only look at one area of a person's health—rather than the way the brain and body are fully connected—it's very difficult to fully comprehend the degree of dysfunction within the person. Therefore it results in a slowing of or a lack of progress for the patient.


2. We specialize in the integration of Functional Neurology, Clinical Nutrition and Functional Endocrinology and Immunology.

Because of this approach, we are able to offer our patients vast, cutting-edge knowledge in the area of the brain-body connection. This fact alone makes us different from other practitioners out there you can choose to work with.

A traditional medical neurologist is trained to find gross problems such as strokes or brain damage. In a NeuroMetabolic practice, we take a functional approach, looking beyond external symptoms to find core issues.


3. We give a very comprehensive exam to all of our patients.

There are very few doctors that look at the function of the whole body and brain as it relates to:

  • Immune Function
  • Endocrine Function
  • Nervous System Function
  • Structure and Physiology

And then take what they've found and develop an innovative plan of wellness that involves the patient in restoring proper function of their body. We have been trained to evaluate the human function—in a VERY comprehensive way.

Our functional diagnostic testing allows us to consider all symptoms…from major health crises to everyday issues like balance problems, dry nose or mouth, ringing ears, or dizziness. Once we've identified your core issues, we can work with them at your core—not with life long medication or complicated, expensive surgeries—which allows your body to begin healing itself.
