Do You Function to Eat or Eat To Function?

Welcome!  I am the managing director of Healthy Wealth for Functional Survival (HWFS). My approach to survival is called Functional Survival (FS).

In Functional Survival, we don’t just focus on your symptoms. Symptoms are the tip of the iceberg; we go for the whole iceberg! I take a thorough history, listen carefully to your concerns, consider results of lab work, take in who you are, and where you are in your life, and come up with a plan to gradually help your whole body get back into balance so you feel better. I work with you using individually designed survival plans, and individually tailored workable programs to support your body in healing itself. Here are some things you might want to know about Healthy Wealth for Functional Survival (HWFS) if you are considering partnering with us for improving your health.

Let Us Make Health Easier

Healthy Wealth for Functional Survival (HWFS) removes many of the obstacles that make a healthy lifestyle hard to achieve. We know, that simply being handed a list of “do’s and don’ts” doesn’t cut it as far as making permanent, dietary shifts. We focus on helping you go from knowing what to do, to actually doing it, from “information to implementation”.

Let Us Keep Latest Update To Date

We always keep up to date on current research, controversy and practice. Research and experience tells us that most people derive great healthy wealth benefits from reducing or eliminating refined carbohydrates and sugar from their diets, and focusing on a diet of clean, wholesome foods. How one does this depends on individual needs and circumstances.

Let Us Help You Identify Your Unique Body’s Needs

In 1914, Dr. Daniel David Palmer noted that “When Educated and Innate Intelligences are able to converse with each other … (a possibility which a not very distant future may disclose) we shall be able to make a correct diagnosis.”

In the statement he referred to two kinds of intelligence available to determine the health status and guide the healing of a person — the “Educated” intelligence and the “Innate” intelligence. The Educated intelligence is what we acquire in school and through life experience. Innate intelligence we are all born with and resides in our body whether we recognize it or not.

Innate intelligence is what allows every living thing to adapt to its environment in order to survive. For example, a plant will turn itself toward the sun if placed on a windowsill. A baby’s heart beats and her small body digests and uses nutrients for growth, without being taught how to do these things.

We can support our innate abilities by eliminating things that are harmful to the body and adopting behaviors that are healing to the body. It’s also important to approach healing in the correct order. If you cut your hand in the garden, you would clean it first, then apply a salve and then bandage it. If these things are done in a different order, the healing process can be impaired.

Let us use laboratory, academic, and research knowledge as the basis for educated intelligence. Nutrition Response Testing allows us to tap into innate intelligence. At HWFS let us use both to determine the root cause of health challenges. Nutrition Response Testing also shows us the exact right order to approach the healing process. It’s exciting to see the amazing successes that our patients report to us every day at Healthy Wealth for Functional Survival (HWFS). If you are not a Nutrition Response Testing patient, the technique likely won’t help you. But if you are a Nutrition Response Testing patient, it is my experience that you can achieve powerful results!

HWFS is natural-based health care that is focused on building health by restoring proper physiological functioning of the body. When you have multiple symptoms, they are clues to the ways in which your body is not functioning the way it should be. Rather than suppress those symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to “read” those symptoms to understand which systems of your body need support to get back on track and get you healthy again.

By looking at your whole picture -- diet, symptoms, illness history, medications, lifestyle, stress, lab work, toxic exposure, history of antibiotic use, etc., we are able to put together an overall plan. That plan serves as a trail map of the nutrition your body needs to regain health and prevent illness.

What can a consultation can do for me?

Help you identify the exact nutrition your body needs to get well and stay well. You are unique and your nutritional plan should fit you, your body, and your situation.

Give you a solution focused, dietary road-map for improved health and well-being.

Further questions

If you have any questions or are ready to schedule an appointment, please call: 9733 0932

1. Judy, you’re a genius! The supplements you recommended worked. Within a few hours yesterday afternoon my black mood lifted, and today I felt great when I woke up and my joint pain is gone! - J.P.

2. I experienced a lot of inertia, feelings of overwhelm, digestive disturbances, weight gain around my middle, and numerous other symptoms. Judy gave me a program that right away had me feeling like my “real” self again. I have new energy, motivation, and enthusiasm for life. I lost 2” off my middle. When I went back over the symptom checklist 6 months later, I saw how many symptoms I used to have but have no longer. Thanks Judy! - L.M.

3. I am feeling better and better all the time! My digestion has improved and my sinuses are much better - they’ve never felt like this. I’m not getting sinus headaches or burning in my face. I didn’t know what it felt like to be this healthy! - D.C.

4. When I first came to Judy I was in and out of depression, had no motivation to do anything, and had terrible itching on my head and shins. I’d had hot flashes for five years that made it difficult to think and focus. I didn’t feel like exercising. Since working with Judy the hot flashes and itching are gone, I’ve joined an exercise club for women, and have built up muscle and improved my metabolism through exercise. My depression is gone and I have more control over emotional eating. - J.H.

5. I was feeling sluggish and slow, confused, forgetful, unmotivated, depressed—I suspected food allergies but lacked the mental clarity to identify them. After just five weeks, my mind is much clearer. I can get organized, prioritize; accomplish things I could only daydream about before. I have lost weight and feel more fit, and the “brain fog” is about gone! - J.L.

6. I had a bone density test in August of 2009 which showed Osteopenia. My doctor told me to take more calcium. Thank Heavens I made an appointment to see Judy Stone, thinking she could instruct me on foods high in calcium. Judy had me get tested and discovered that I’m Gluten-Intolerant, which (I’ve learned) is a major cause of Osteopenia. She had me start on a gluten-free diet and some supplements tailored for my needs so that I could absorb calcium and other nutrients better. Judy is very patient and makes sure you understand which foods to avoid and which ones will enhance your health. I noticed improvements in my health very soon: Digestive symptoms have improved; my mood is better (and I’m no longer jittery); I have more energy, fewer aches and pains (much decreased use of over-the-counter pain meds); my sinuses are healthier; and I sleep more restfully! -D.H.

7. When I first came to Judy I had low energy, was sluggish, and had a lot of colon and digestive issues. Within six weeks my energy is up, I’m coping with my allergies much better, and my colon is calming down. - A.Z.

8. For the last 4 to 5 months my 10-year-old son was tired, wanting to sleep a lot and had episodes of sudden stomach cramps. He’d get flush, hot and was just miserable. An episode would last 2-3 hours and he’d be even more tired afterwards. Since bringing him to Judy his sleep is much better—deeper and more restful—he’s more alert, has more energy and there’s an overall improvement in his mood and well-being. The stomach cramping episodes have stopped almost completely and if they do arise the episodes are much shorter and less intense and the recovery is much faster. My son says, “I like coming to visit Judy—it’s a good experience”. - R.S.

10. I was trying to eat “good” food but I was hungry all the time; I took vitamins and minerals but wasn’t sure how or if they were absorbing. After working with Judy I feel calmer than I have for years, and I’m not hungry all the time anymore. - S.K.

11. I felt tired all the time and had difficulty doing all I wanted to do, and was having pre-menopausal symptoms. After starting with the recommended supplements and making the suggested dietary changes I noticed an immediate improvement in my energy level. I’ve lost weight and am sleeping better. My pre-menopause symptoms are more manageable. - A.M.

12. I visited Judy for the first time just before Thanksgiving in 2009 with a primary goal of losing weight. After reading my health history, and hearing how my life was controlled by Colitis symptoms (I couldn’t leave the house until late in the morning and couldn’t go anywhere unless I knew there was a bathroom close by) Judy said that my first goal had to be addressing my colitis. She recommended that I avoid all grain products for a period of time so my gut could heal, and several other dietary changes, along with some supplements to calm the inflammation, repair the damage, and support my digestion. Everything she suggested was helpful to me. In three days my symptoms improved significantly which motivated me to continue with the diet. During the next 6 months, I had several setbacks and my colitis symptoms returned, but we worked with those, and each time the flare-ups were less severe and shorter-lasting. I have now been symptom-free for over 3 months but have been able to eat some grains again. For me avoiding gluten has not been too great a sacrifice because of the well-being that has resulted. Now I am used to feeling well and am better able to address my other nutritional goals. - D.D.
