Digestive System

The human physiological function—that is, all of the physical functions of the body—is directly affected by diet. Food must be properly digested in order for nutrients to be absorbed. When your digestive system is not functioning properly, the results can be nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, weight loss, weight gain, bloating, chest congestion, asthma, shortness of breath, and more. 

Everyone has different nutrient needs based on genetics, age, and even location. In addition, the foods consumed by a person are heavily influence by culture, upbringing, health perceptions, and habits. A diet analysis allows us to determine the amounts of protein, fat, and carbohydrates you are ingesting, and in turn help us evaluate vitamins, minerals, and nutrient intake. This information is vital to personalizing a nutrition program that is individual to each patient’s specific needs.

Adequate amounts of various nutrients and enzymes is pertinent to a healthy digestive system. A lack of any necessary nutrients can have negative effects on your body. After assessing your diet, Calmglow will offer support to help your digestive system function properly, thus freeing you from the side effects of an improperly functioning digestive system.


Food Allergies

People are frequently allergic to many things they eat or drink, often without realizing it. Allergic responses vary in severity. Reactions range from simple fatigue or skin rashes to life-threatening respiratory problems. Food allergies can also interfere with daily functioning.

Eating the same food can cause different reactions at different times depending on a variety of physical and psychological factors. The most common food allergies are: milk, wheat, corn, tomatoes, soy, chocolate, beef, and peanuts.

If you experience any physical or mental reactions after eating, consider being tested for food allergies. These sensitivities are highly individual, and range from small reactions to large ones. They can be felt right after eating, or even two to three days later.

Calmglow can help you identify and eliminate these foods from your diet. Once your allergies are identified, Calmglow will help wean you from these foods over 2-4 months. After that time, the food allergy is typically eliminated, and these foods can be carefully reintroduced to your diet.


Environmental Allergies

One in four Americans suffers from allergies. Some of the most common symptoms include: sneezing, watery or itchy eyes, runny or congested nose, asthma, eczema or hives, headaches, muscle and joint pain, and hyperactivity. Don’t let these allergies cut into the quality of your life! There could be a simple solution for you.

There is an alternative to partially-effective medications and time-consuming trips for allergy shots. People of all ages can find fast, lasting relief with under-the-tongue allergy drops that can be taken in the comfort of home.

The best part of talking with new patients…

I have worked with Dianne Hinton at Calmglow for 4 years. I receive calls from new patients every day. I think the best part of talking with new patients is that I give them the knowledge and hope in knowing that I–like all of Dianne’s staff–was her patient before her employee. I think that says a lot about Dianne as a practitioner. She is very compassionate and caring towards each individual patient.

Diane Hinton saved my life!

After over a year of traditional doctors misdiagnosing and mistreating my illness, Diane immediately got it right. She identified the root cause of my illness, and I went from being chronically ill to healed and healthy in less than a year. Diane listens to and cares for her patients like no one I’ve ever known. I highly recommend her for diagnosing the true health issues, rather than just treating your symptoms.

My husband and I just love Calmglow …

Just what is Functional Medicine?  Simply put…. I call it getting to the “cause” of a health issue. Rashes, High Pressure, Arthritis, Obesity, Insomnia, and Fatigue are a few of the issues she’s helped us with.  But what I really like best is; she doesn’t say “here, take this pill” and it’ll “treat the symptoms”.  She treats the “cause” of those symptoms so they truly go away without requiring “pills”.  Our bodies are healing, and the we feel we’re the healthiest we’ve been in a long time! What we’ve discovered about the manner in which our bodies “had been” functioning previously, from the in depth tests she recommends, was pretty astounding. We’ve learned so much since starting to see her as our practitioner, I would never choose to go back to an Allopathic doctor!
