After identifying causes of inflammation which result in symptoms or signs of disease, we support the patient’s body so the patient can eliminate those causes.  Our ultimate goal:  We want to alleviate symptoms so that the patient “feels good” without taking a lot of medicines.

EVERYTHING we perceive IS energy according to E = mc2.  Living bodies are miraculous creations capable of maintaining a healthy balance of energy . . . up to a point.  When energetic imbalance occurs, disease happens.  “Nutrition” (nutrients plus the energy they contain) provide building essentials the body needs for repair.

No, but you would not be reading this if what is already being done were working to your satisfaction.  What we do relies heavily on supplying the nutrition needed by the patient’s body in order to make the repairs necessary.  Every traditional approach assumes the patient receives proper levels of nutrition, but few ensure that it happens.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will your treatments conflict with what is already being done?

How can “nutritional energy” help the patient?

What is the goal of your approach?

We PREFER to work with your doctor!  That way, if an emergency arises, or if conventional tests need to be performed, there is someplace to go where the patient’s details are already known.  The only problem is that many traditional doctors may not accept what we do.  We are always happy to share what we have learned.

Can you work with the doctors I already have?

Achieving optimum health is a journey and not a destination.  Time needed to solve health problems is proportional to their severity and duration because chronic inflammation (which causes symptoms) results in damage to organs.  The more damage, the more time it will take to repair it.

In the beginning, monthly testing will be necessary to determine the next stage of therapy and to be sure that treatment is “on course.”

But even after the patient has achieved the goal of symptom-free optimum health (if that goal can be achieved), we still recommend (less frequent) health checks because “life happens” and we want the patient to be prepared for the consequences asap.

How long will it take the patient to achieve this goal?

It is quite common for people to ask if we have success with "these kinds of cases," but actually, according to our point of view, there is no such thing as "these kinds of cases." That is, every patient is a unique individual and the patient’s "case" is equally unique — with unique causes, effects and treatment requirements.

The question is based on familiarity with the conventional paradigm.  The traditional approach to solving disease problems is to make a diagnosis based on conventional diagnostic procedures with which you are familiar.  Then, given the diagnosis, the clinician uses his or her knowledge of pharmacology and surgery to suggest different treatments in hopes of finding one that will counteract the symptoms at hand.  (The "Here, try this" method.)  The ideal scene for the conventional practitioner would be to possess knowledge of a drug or surgery for every symptom.  If you subscribe to this medical paradigm, then your question is perfectly appropriate.  But, we believe that modern medicine is moving beyond that outdated and imperfect paradigm.

Basically, what we do that is different from the conventional approach is to test the patient with the goal of determining the causes of the condition. Then, instead of suppressing symptoms with drugs or surgery, we help the patient's body to eliminate the causes. If we are successful at the latter, symptoms will disappear unless irreparable damage has occurred.  Even if all symptoms cannot be alleviated in some cases, the next best thing is to be able to help the patient arrest progress of the condition.

Bottom Line:  Can you help with this patient’s health problem?

Even if you provide a “diagnosis” on which several health care professionals agree, we won’t know anything until we actually test the patient.  [A “diagnosis” is usually a description of the set of symptoms and does not describe their causes.] 

There are two ways to set up an appointment for testing the patient:

1. Call our office at 530-666-7322 and speak with a member of our staff.  This is the fastest and easiest way to start, and staff can also answer many of your questions.

2. Request an appointment by email at  This may take a little longer, but it may be the best choice if you live at a great distance and want to avoid telephone charges.

We hope we have the opportunity to help and we look forward to working with you toward a common goal!

Sincerely,  Bert & Melissa Brooks
