Holistic versus Drug

Chronic Pain Clear Lake WA Green Plant

In America, one of the greatest challenges you will face in health care, is that it is a drug culture. This means that regardless of your problem, your underlying damage, the possible side effects and addictive nature, or even current medical research - the first medical treatment that will likely be offered for most health concerns is a pharmaceutical intervention.

At Averio Health Institute our approach is three tiered:

First: "Test not Guess"
A unique aspect of care at AHI is the expansive bio-chemical, nutritional and neurological testing that occurs before a care plan is established. This is our philosophy of “Test Not Guess.” Your results depend on the most accurate treatment plan possible, and that requires an accurate assessment of the damage in your body, your nutritional deficiencies, your imbalances – we offer many functional assessments to help determine the cause of your health concerns.

Second: "Concentrated Care"
There are many great treatment and therapy options. However, a patient often lacks results because they did not receive enough care, frequent enough care or enough stimulation to give their body a chance to reverse its damage. At AHI care is concentrated, meaning that you might receive the same amount of functional neurological adjustments in one day that you could receive over the course of three months in a different clinic. Your body is dynamic and can adapt; concentrated care in our office is showing greater spinal change results in one week than was previously thought to be possible in one year.

Concentrated care may be the future of medicine!

Third: "Educate, Educate, Educate"
From our philosophy it is mandatory that you know how to manage and preserve your health to the best of your ability. Our Averio Team makes it a priority to take the time to explain to you your test results, what that means for you and what changes you need to make to give yourself the best chance of success.
