Bio-individuality

At Metabolix Health, we believe in the bio-individuality of each person.  This means that one standard solution doesn’t work for everyone. One diet plan doesn’t fit everyone - even when the latest celebrity plan seems to suggest it does and so many people fall for this philosophy.  In bio-individuality, we recognize each individual body will differ in their nutritional needs as a result of their external and internal factors like the foods we eat, our emotional thoughts, lifestyle patterns, and our surrounding physical environment. In a social media driven world, especially in the health and wellness sector and dieting sector, it can be very challenging even for those of us in the industry to discern what to filter out what we experience on a personal level. It can be very challenging when a medical doctor promotes the latest type of diet that is absolutely going to transform your life instantly.

Food is Medicine

Food is the original form of medicine, keeping our bodies healthy and functioning throughout our lives. In ancient healing traditions, food was considered the first line of defense against illness and disease. In Functional Medicine at Metabolix Health, we believe that the purpose of our work is to use food as a natural medicine first to heal the gut, correct nutrient deficiencies and restore balance to the body.  We then add in high quality nutritional supplementation to correct imbalances revealed in testing that require more than food. Our nutritional coach will work with you to help you create healthy eating habits. We will put together recipes and meal plans that work with your health systems such as hormones, gut health and metabolism.

We all have the potential to heal

The body's ability to heal itself naturally is not new or novel - we have all seen examples of the body’s ability to heal. A fractured bone will regrow and heal the break. Cut yourself shaving, and the skin will heal. There are many examples of our body's innate ability to heal injuries. At Metabolix Health a core value is that we believe that you can reverse your chronic illness. The ability to heal is intrinsic to all multicellular organisms. The capacity for self-healing is inherent in all of us and critical to our survival. We often require interventional medicine when this ability fails due to poor nutrition, unhealthy lifestyle, accidents, and diseases.

Good health is not the absence of disease

At Metabolix Health, we believe that health goes way beyond the absence of disease. It is our mission to teach our clients how to create a life of vitality and optimal health. Functional Medicine is function focused not pathology focused which is the conventional model of medicine. In the United States, up to 40% of deaths from the top five leading causes of disease are preventable. This is where functional medicine and Metabolix Health shines. Functional medicine is about reversing imbalances in all health systems such as gut health, blood sugar, minerals, fatty acids and detox systems. By focusing on prevention, we partner with our clients to help them learn how to change their habits for a greater sense of wellbeing and healthier systems. Health is the state of emotional, mental, physical, spiritual and social well-being.

Mindset before medicine

Health coaching and mindset changes are critical for your health journey from sickness to health. Your mindset is essential to making any lasting change. In the short term, you may be able to motivate yourself to work out and eat a slightly more healthy diet for a few weeks. However, without the right mindset you cannot expect to sustain long term reversal of your health.  Your willpower will not be sufficient.

“Thank you for giving me your hand at a time when all other doors of medicine were closed!”

Thank you for giving me your hand at a time when all other doors of medicine were closed! Thank you for giving me back my sleep at night, and the insomnia is already in the distant past! I’m so happy that I just wake up every day with a smile and hope like it’s Christmas.

People who sleep peacefully at night have no idea how lucky they are! Thank you for the fact that dizziness, fatigue, and depression are behind me and most of all thank you for being by my side. I know that I am not alone this time. I know it will be long, I know it will involve many trials and I will be taking lots of supplements, but I know, for the first time in my life, that this is the right path and I will take every step with you.

Thank you, Clare, you are my guardian angel!

“After seeing several doctors and receiving the wrong diagnosis, I gave up on regular doctors.”

After seeing several doctors and receiving the wrong diagnosis, I gave up on “regular doctors.” A friend suggested I see Clare and my life hasn’t been the same since! Clare discovered the “skin issue” that I had been struggling with. As we dug through the layers of my health we built a friendship. While I was ready to give up on everyone and everything, Clare never gave up on me. She pressed on to find answers and products to help me. She taught me about nutrition, health, supplements, and how to care for my family naturally. My 10-year-old is also a client. With some minor diet changes and supplements, he has been off of ADHD medication for a year. My case is very challenging and I am not healed yet, but I’m better than I used to be and every day I move one step in a positive direction to get my life back.

“From the first moment Clare exuded empathy and a real desire to help me realize my health goals."

From the moment Clare appeared on the screen during our virtual appointment, she exuded empathy and an earnest desire to help me realize my health goals. She confidently conveyed how she could help me regain my menstrual cycle and manage my anxiety and insomnia. 

Through key lab tests, Clare discovered the biological root cause of my symptoms and not only gave me several supplements to balance hormones and replenish depleted nutrient stores but also encouraged some critical lifestyle changes. She delivers her advice with such compassion! I’ve been on my protocol for a month and a half now and feel better than I ever have in my adult life. I’m so grateful for the steady energy and mood that I can count on throughout the day.
