Foundational Medicine by Dr. Todd Cameron, N.D.

Foundational Medicine

I have coined the term “Foundational Medicine” to describe the concept of building a firm foundation to support a strong, healthy body/mind/spirit. Intuitively we may understand that gaining and maintaining this goal requires constant attention in key areas.

Dr. Todd Cameron

Dysfunction in one or more of these foundational areas seems to be common to most people; our post-industrial pathos inherited from generations of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers living in the Jetson age…if you will.

Although individual treatment plans will vary, the analogy is straightforward: clear away the sand, get down to bedrock and lay a firm foundation.

Foundational medicine explores 5 basic areas affecting our healing potential:

Stress/Hormonal Balance/Endocrine
Exercise/Conditioning/Physical Optimization

We obtain information about you in each of these areas with: intake forms, questionnaires, history and physical exam, anthropomorphic measurements, laboratory studies.., et cetera.
