This model assists Dr. Murfin in organizing client health by focusing on the patient as a whole. Each node in the Seven Nodes of Healing (our approach) represents a set of biological functions that are interconnected, much like a web, all influencing each other. Through detailed quantitative testing and keen analysis, we look at the overall function and organ efficiency of each system in the model.
Seven Core Nodes of Healing
Functional Medicine Approach
Improve gut health
Our practice will work to improve gut health by clearing out allergens, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Food sensitivities and digestion improve with enzymes, probiotics (good bugs) and prebiotics (food for good bugs). Essential healing nutrients also stimulate your vagus nerve for optimal digestion and absorption.
Boost brain power & mood
Get your three-pound energetic genius (your brain!) functioning optimally again through neurotransmitter balancing, nutrient repletion, hormonal balancing, mitochondrial energy re-booting, gut healing, detoxification, lowering bodily inflammation, and examining the mind/body connection.
By testing adrenal gland function, the thyroid hormone, and insulin together, LMMD can work to balance homeones by revealing the interconnected relationship within the body’s Neuro-Endo-Immune (NEI) system to facilitate better communication among your body’s cells.
Enhancing cellular function involves awareness about your air, food, water, organs, and the electromagnetic fields you expose yourself to. Detoxification can lead to tangible improvements in your endocrine and reproductive systems.
Restore heart vitality
Give this hard-working organ (your heart!) some help by replenishing its four key nutrients: Magnesium, L-Carnitine, COQ10, and D-Ribose to maximize your heart's supply of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).
Optimize immune balance
By assessing biomarkers of the immune system (cytokines) as well as your genomics to determine where there may be frailties or imbalances, LMMD pinpoints the problem at the source.
Understanding your body’s metabolism involves knowing how energy is produced and where it may be blocked in its mitochondrial cells - and supplements paired with immune-boosting intravenous infusions serve to clear out damaged cells while supercharging your body.
Mind / Body / Soul / Spirit
Striving to heal your being (mind, body, soul and spirit) involves fully examining your meaning and purpose in life, what has value to you, and how you achieve connection with yourself, your family, your friends, and your community.
