Cellular Healing & Functional Medicine

Metabolic + Immune Reset

Cellular Root Cause Areas of Focus 

Cherish Functional Wellness is known for its metabolic and immune reset, giving back your health to you. However, in functional medicine, we take holistic systems approach, consider all interconnectedness of nodes like gut health, microbiome, immune, energy, hormone, elimination, toxins, transport, structural integrity, mental, emotional, and spiritual/purpose, nutrition, stress, sleep, and movement.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is dedicated to understanding the root cause of illness and restoring health and well-being by addressing the whole person!

Every system in our body is intricately connected, and thus, one can influence another. Therefore, even though you may come to us with gut issues, we will look into other systems, such as mental, emotional, spiritual, immune, cell mitochondria, hormones, microbiome neurotransmitters, elimination, and detox. You will receive holistic care from Cherish.

What is Cellular Healing?

We know that cells are the basic building blocks of our body and life. Cellular healing focuses on the health and well-being of cells by helping the body heal itself through a functional medicine approach.

We all can understand the need for thousands of bricks to build a house. Cells are like those individual bricks of the house. The human body is made up of about 30 trillion cells, working together in harmony and carrying out specific functions that are vital for maintaining life, health, and well-being. Imagine if those bricks suffer physical damage, weathering, erosion, water damage, mold, etc.; the house will not be strong and may not be inhabitable.

In the same way, our cells of the body may go through physical damage, injuries, exposure to environmental pollutants, toxins, chemicals, pathogens, parasites, infections, and poor maintenance, to name a few. Mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of life are other inseparable components of health and well-being.

What are the Vital Functions of Cells?

Some of the vital functions of cells that are essential for the survival and functioning of our body include:

Cellular energy: Cells produce energy by converting nutrients into ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). This process happens in the Mitochondria of the cells, which is also called the powerhouse of energy. If you are fatigued, cellular energy is one of the matrix nodes we look at.

Metabolism: Our cells carry out metabolic processes, such as nutrient breakdown and regulating biochemical reactions, including protein, fat, and carbohydrates.

Communication: It is fascinating that our cells talk to each other and respond to various stimuli through hormones, neurotransmitters, and nerve impulses.

Homeostasis: Our cells maintain harmony and balance by regulating factors such as pH, temperature, water content, and ion concentration, which are needed for life.

Immunity: Cells are also our armies! Cells of the immune system, such as white blood cells and other immune cell components, defend the body against pathogens and foreign substances.

Reproduction: Cells have an amazing ability to reproduce for growth, development, and replacement of damaged or old cells. Research shows that red blood cells get replaced every four months, and liver cells can regrow within days/weeks.

Transport: Cellular transport occurs at the individual cells, facilitating the transport of molecules, ions, and other substances through processes like diffusion, osmosis, active transport, etc. After the cellular transport process, our circulatory and lymphatic systems facilitate the systemic transport of nutrients, oxygen, waste products, etc.

Structural support: Cells help maintain the structure of tissues and organs. Examples include collagen, elastin, bone-forming cells, muscle cells, nerve cells, epithelial cells, glial cells, and stromal cells. In intestinal permeability (leaky gut), we work to heal the intestinal epithelia cell lining along with immune cells.

The keys to cellular healing are to remove, restore, repair, reduce and rebalance at the cellular level.

Inflammatory + Autoimmune Support

Typically, our immune system protects us—it’s our body’s army friend. However, when we are exposed to harmful triggers for a long time, leading to chronic inflammation, our immune system can no longer tolerate them. Instead of protecting us, our immune system starts to attack us through various mechanisms, leading to autoimmune illnesses. Autoimmune diseases affect millions of people worldwide. Women account for about 80% of all autoimmune conditions, and four out of five autoimmune sufferers are women.

The good news is that inflammation and autoimmune conditions may be calmed down or reversed naturally through Cherish’s cellular healing individualized program. We have living proof.

Metabolic Syndrome Support

Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that together increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and many other serious health problems. According to the NCEP guideline, you may have metabolic syndrome if you have any three of these conditions: increased abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, or low good cholesterol. In the US, one out of three adults has metabolic syndrome.

The good news is that, for the most part, working with Cherish Functional Wellness may prevent or reverse these conditions.

Gut Health Support

“Death begins in the gut.” Gut health refers to the well-being of the stomach, small and large intestine, and other associated organs. The gut hosts 70% of our immune system. A healthy gut is essential for overall health and plays a crucial role in food digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, and the microbiome (the community of microorganisms living in the gut).

The good news is that our comprehensive, personalized gut health protocol may mitigate many gut issues through lifestyle, immune support, advanced tests, and microbiome restoration.

Gut Health Issues Include:

Heartburn, GERD, Acid Reflux
Chronic Constipation or Diarrhea (IBS)
Leaky Gut
Food Allergies and Sensitivities
Undernutrition and Malabsorption
Hidden Bacterial, Fungal and Parasite Infections
Dysbiosis and Microbiota Imbalances
