RocketVitality offers a powerful functional coaching sequence to identify, target and accelerate individuals towards their optimal health goal, a prerequisite to achieving life's audacious goals. Optimal health means you are at your healthiest self—your personal best. We start with a comprehensive "Systems Check" as a baseline and establish a Personal Mission Plan, a holistic focus with the aim of attaining the best possible health outcomes by promoting healthier behaviors and not merely the absence of disease. The Functional Medicine model evolved from the insights and perspectives of a small group of influential thought leaders who realized the importance of an individualized approach to disease causes based on the evolving research in nutritional science, genomics, and epigenetics.
Functional nutrition follows this philosophy and considers a unique health and nutritional approach based on everyone's individual health journey. Our bodies are designed to work optimally and be free of disease. If you have ever felt your body and mind working optimally, where nothing stops you and you are working from your own innate power—you know what I am talking about! If you haven't, fasten your seat belts!
In reality, we often experience unidentified "system breakdowns", leading to an overall decline in health and wellbeing. The Power Sequence program is designed specifically to evaluate the interaction of all systems of the body to find and re-balance those disruptions with drug-free, common-sense, yet powerful approaches that help the body heal itself.
What are some of those system breakdowns? Well, digestion is probably the most prevalent dysfunction in health today where the body is unable to extract the vital micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids) from the macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) we eat. Therefore cells are malnourished, leading to bodily dysfunctions. Fixing stomach acid abnormalities such as GERD and acid reflux falls into this category. Other such dysfunctions are blood sugar handling and diabetes, adrenal exhaustion and hormonal abnormalities—just to name a few.
Our Power Assessment will give you a clear picture of how well your body's systems are functioning, which enables us to set and attain goals via our Power Coaching strategy.
