4 Pillars Philosophy

Here’s what we believe at 4 Pillars Health & Wellness…

  • When you change how your think about your health, and recognize you are in control, you can accomplish anything.
  • You deserve Optimal Health. Optimal Health is not simply the absence of disease, but rather when you have energy and vitality, are free of pain, and can achieve your goals.  How do you want to feel?  Just making it through the day, or fantastic?
  • You have the ability to heal (even if other doctors have said you can’t) and deserve the opportunity to make that happen.
  • When you mask or suppress symptoms, you might feel better briefly, but this can lead to even more problems down the road because the true cause of the symptoms persists.  True health is achieved by identifying and treating the actual root problems.
  • No doctor or health practitioner can fix you.  The responsibility to achieve optimal health is yours.  We can provide education, guidance and support but the ultimate responsibility lies with you.
  • Make changes is hard; there’s no question about that.  However, remaining stagnant while your health deteriorates is harder.  You are able to change when you start putting your health and well-being as your top priority.
  • 4 key pillars… food, movement, relaxation, and community are the cornerstones to achieving optimal health.
  • You genetics are not your destiny.  Your environment, behaviors, and thoughts can affect what genes turn on and off (epigenetics) and are the major drivers of health and disease.
  • Functional Medicine, the new personalized paradigm for preventing and reversing chronic illness, is the best structure in which to help you achieve your health goals.
  • Functional Medicine is the model in which we believe; it’s the model by which we personally live; and it’s the model in which we practice.
