Stress Reduction Resources and Techniques

“Your mental and emotional well being as affected by stress is perhaps more potent and powerful than any other factor in affecting and manipulating your health for worse or better. Emotional well being and peace of mind if missing can worsen and trigger disease. ~Dr Rashel Tahzib Here are a couple of handouts that include tools and other nourishing ideas for reversing patterns of chronic stress.

How to Succeed in the First Six Weeks

The first six weeks of our partnership with you and the start of your journey to optimal health and well being are extremely important.

This is the time when you start to rebalance your system (through diet, supplements and in some cases, medications) and we start gathering important data to help decipher what’s really going on in your body.

We put together a handout that outlines how to get started on your healing journey:

The Right Order of Things

Peeling the Onion of Chronic Disease: In the practice of medicine, healing depends not only on doing the right things, but also doing them in the right order.

The Right Order of things is written by Dr Mark Hyman to give patients a road map of where to start and the plan that Functional medicine physicians will use to peel away the layers of chronic disease.

Where should I purchase my supplements?

You can purchase supplements by calling the office and or ordering by email

Dr. Rashel explains why it’s crucially important to get your supplements from a reliable source:

Thank you for choosing our store for your supplement needs. At our store you will find a wide array of products I have hand-picked to address specific conditions and cover the nutrient bases you might not be getting even if you’re eating fresh, whole, real foods.

Buying quality supplements from the right sources is so important because unlike pharmaceutical drugs, supplements are not regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The manufactures I carry in my formulary have strict criteria. All the manufactures adhere to Good Manufacturing Practices standards.

When choosing supplements it is important to be very careful and weary of third party vendors, online, and especially big box retailers.

We order direct from most manufactures and guarantee our quality control regarding temperature and storage. Many Supplements sold in grocery stores and big pharmacies and advertised online are filled with fillers, allergens and even toxins.

Purchasing quality supplements from the right source is critical and becomes crucial to obtain the highest-potency, effective, synergistic, pure nutrients.

When you obtain your supplements that are Doctor approved, you can rest assured products are guaranteed to be safe, effective, allergen free, toxin free, research based, effective and targeted.
Most of these products I have hand picked, used myself and clinically studied and chosen.
