Giske Ursin, direktør ved #kreftregisteret holdt et flott innlegg på @_tekna_ biotek sitt arrangement hos @kreftforeningen sitt vitensenter 🤗📈🗃. Hun etterlyser en god løsning for å få informasjon om #legemidler inn i registrene, for å finne ut hvem som har best nytte av hvilken behandling #personalizedmedicine . Hun påpeker også utfordringene med bruk av både papir og flere ulike datasystemer i Norge 🖥📑💊💉. #SykehusapotekeneHF er involvert i utvikling og bruk av flere slike IT-løsninger, samtidig som faxen går varm📠😉.

Today I saw a wonderful partner in healing. We’ve been working on parasites. She came in originally with profound fatigue and food intolerances. We’ve been working together for over a year. She came in set to focus on parasites, but meds only weakened her more. We backpedaled to build her up. Our breakthrough? Free amino acids! These were broken down and easily absorbed even when she was so deconditioned. Her body started to rebuild digestive enzymes. Her food tolerance improved. She became more resilient in mind and in body. We also used liposomal mitochondrial and adrenal support, and Oxy powder and GI detox (global healing center and bio botanical research respectively) to regulate the bowels. The clincher? Her relationship with herself. Not giving up and allowing her body more time for rest and recovery- not feeling hopeless at the slower rate of healing for her, but simple gratitude for the healing curve. I’m very proud to be on this journey with her. #lessismore#parasites#functionalmedicine#rahavwellness#chronicfatigue#chronicillness#personalizedmedicine#itspersonal#nyc
✨I’m honored to be the featured doc for St. Louis Institute of Integrative Medicine! This fantastic group of health professionals is raising the bar of healthcare for our patients. Check out the post below.
My name is Dr. Jason Wibbenmeyer, and I am co-founder of Innovative Health Partners. I am a chiropractic physician, who utilizes a whole body approach to health through functional medicine, specializing in gut health.
My path to practicing functional medicine began as my health philosophy and my personal health was compromised and challenged. I always connected with a natural approach to health and knew that chiropractic would be a strong foundation to cultivate a fresh approach to transformative healthcare. However, when I was in chiropractic school to become a healer, I was seeing parts of my health decline. I started experiencing anxiety to the point of panic attacks, and at the same time, I was beginning to develop health concerns with my GI system that seemed “out of nowhere.” Also, during this, I had two sisters diagnosed with two different autoimmune diseases -- Lupus and Celiac. It was at this time I realized my lifestyle choices were not supporting me and they were incongruent with what I wanted. Plus, knowing what I knew about autoimmune diseases and how they develop, I knew I’d be next in line if I didn’t clean up. I realized I had to gain control and implement lifestyle changes that would support me. By experiencing this journey, I was able to transform my health and be the best healer for my patients that need me to be my best.
As someone who tries to enjoy life to the fullest, I want my patients to not only get by and just feel better, but to push themselves toward optimal health so they can experience the richness that life has to offer! I believe as functional medicine doctors, we have this awesome opportunity in front of us to make massive changes in our patient’s health and ultimately, our world. It is because of this that Innovative Health Partners is transforming our healthcare delivery to meet patients where they are both locally and around the world 🌎✌🏼
There’s nothing more rewarding than coming back to work on a Monday and putting your thoughts into action after a weekend of learning. Meryl had the privilege of attending The Science of Precision conference in Arizona this weekend- and came out learning so much to better her work.
It was wonderful to meet with so many amazing thought leaders in Functional Medicine. Many wonderful connections were made including the Dr. Larry Smarr, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. Patrick Hanaway, Dr. Jill Carnahan and the chance to meet and greet with the father of medicine himself- Dr. Jeff Bland.
This conference did not disappoint, instead it has made us proud to be part of this wellness movement with these amazing professionals. Looking forward to bringing this new knowledge into our practices as we all strive for optimal health and wellness in the most natural ways.

Whether you’re male or female,
pre/peri or post-menopausal,
trying to prevent breast cancer, or have
active or personal/family history of breast cancer:
it is important to know what YOUR
estrogen metabolism looks like.
In practice I test estrogen metabolism & use estrogen metabolites as a biomarker for detecting my clients’ susceptibility to breast & other estrogen-based cancers.
Stay with me here 🤓:
of the 3 pathways in phase one estrogen metabolism, the 4OH pathway is the most malign & can increase risk for breast & other estrogen-based cancers.
Think of it this way: if most of your ‘estrogen cars’ are taking the ‘4OH highway’ out of your body, we want to be made aware of this— because there’s a lot we can do to redirect this estrogen traffic pattern!!! 🙌🏻
Imagine how much we can do to decrease risk & incidence of breast & other estrogen-based cancers in women & men just by looking at estrogen metabolism & responding appropriately.
As a provider who truly prioritizes prevention,
THIS MOTIVATES ME BEYOND WORDS.
I want you to be CEO of your own health.
Being CEO requires being informed.
If you are serious about breast cancer prevention,
don’t you want this information about yourself?
Are you ready to prioritize prevention?

Obrigada @drjeffreybland pir inspirar profissionais no mundo todo. Vir do Brasil por 2 dias de congresso é um grande prazer #personalizedmedicine @instituteforfxmed @institutoassaly @lalifestylemed
There are a lot well-meaning, well-known persons who claim they have the cure for X/Y/Z health issue with a "cure-yourself package." In my practice, we DO NOT recommend this approach because the CAUSE(S) of one person's health issue are NOT THE SAME as the next person. In fact, the causes can be VASTLY different. Each individual, each patient is unique.
Determining what a patient needs requires an in depth history and medical investigation. We need to know about symptoms, lifestyle, environment, and the patient's goals. We tailor our treatment plans and protocols only after spending A LOT of time understanding the patient. #treattherootcause#functionalmedicine#eachpatientisunique#eachtreatmentisunique#personalizedmedicine
What is functional and integrative medicine anyway?
Functional medicine is a very specific area that focuses on: finding the underlying cause of a patient’s health problems, using a laboratory based analysis system to determine what is wrong, using supplements to correct problems with medications as needed, and focusing ever more and more on lifestyle changes such as #diet#exercise#sleep and meditation.
#Integrative medicine is a term that is used more broadly. An integrative medicine clinic, such as ours, has many facets. We integrate treatments for our patients using many modalities often at the same time with the same patient complaint. As an example if someone had constant severe headaches they might get a chiropractic adjustment, nutritional assessment for magnesium deficiencies and a food allergy test to see if diet was a trigger and if they didn’t want to do an adjustment they might end up with a massage for their tight neck muscles or #acupuncture .
Someone suffering from depression might have a holistic psychiatric work up, nutrient testing, neurotransmitter testing, and hormone testing. A good integrative clinic takes into account many different approaches to #healing and wraps them together into the best possible package for an individual patient.
Integrative clinics “integrate” conventional medical services (prescription medications, minor surgeries, etc) with #naturalmedicine (as discussed above)
#Functionalmedicine clinics all share a few common characteristics, they all order “functional” lab testing. Meaning lab tests that are specific to functional medicine and look for “functional” problems, i.e. a problem with organ function that would appear prior to the onset of a disease process. ie, a functional test for heart health might detect low levels of antioxidants whereas a conventional test for heart health might detect a blocked artery. ---
OUR medicine always strives to catch problems in their earliest phases when early intervention is possible and always includes significant #lifestyle changes as part of treatment plans
Come see how we are #different
