What We Do

Restore Health From a Functional Medicine Perspective

We strive to uncover the true causes of your chronic diseases and other health issues.  When we do this we will address the root cause of the disease and not merely treat the symptoms!  In this way we won't just cover up your health problems, we will restore health to your body for good!


If you have been suffering from a health ailment for a long time, if you have been told that your labs are “normal”, if you just plain do not feel good most days and do not know why; a functional medicine approach could help you! If you want to be proactive about your health and reduce the need for medications then we can help with customized supplement programs, customized diets, health coaching, and lifestyle changes.

BodyTalk is a complementary therapy based on the theory that the body has the wisdom to heal itself. BodyTalk communications are based on neuromuscular biofeedback. Through these communications, the BodyTalk practitioner identifies "energy circuits" within the body that are weakened, stressed, blocked, or broken 

BodyTalk integrates the latest discoveries from science, physiology, genetics, psychology, quantum physics and ancient wisdom of eastern medicine to help reconnect lines of healthy communication within all levels of the body-mind. 

Health challenges arise for a variety of reasons.  BodyTalk practitioners are trained to look at the whole-person: emotional, physical and environmental influences - the true underlying causes of "dis-ease" can be revealed.

 "I rave about Daily Apple Wellness Center to everyone. People notice my weight loss or that I'm eating differently and I tell them all about my miracle worker practitioner! Lol.  But I really  do tell everyone about how great you are and how much you've helped me!"

 “After many years of battling continuous weight gain and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I really was almost to the point of coming to terms that there was no hope for losing weight-until I met Amanda!  I’m so thrilled that I’m finally seeing & feeling so many positive changes including a four pound recent weight loss in past three weeks (I’ve actually lost a total of 11 lbs since I’ve been seeing Amanda).  Amanda has given me back my hope and I actually look forward to my light workouts.  

We’re so fortunate to have Amanda here in the lake area because without her professional guidance I know I still would be struggling”

 "In my struggle with autoimmune disease I’ve tried several things in order to achieve remission. After 4 years of trying different prescriptions and diets with no relief from constant blood in my stool I was afraid to eat anything. After meeting Amanda and just 3 months of following her direction I had achieved remission and the blood in my stool was gone. It’s now been a year since we first met and I’m still feeling great and my bloodwork shows it, I’m clear of inflammation! She’s been an answer to prayers!!"

Mark says:

 "Have you been on the “Auto-Immune” traditional medical treatment protocols for awhile now? Do you find yourself achieving your goals, but lacking that final “something” that actually makes you feel great again? Have you switched diet plans and supplements but still falling short? Want to find out why...without revisiting your traditional medical doctor who typically adds another prescription medicine to your already full list of prescription medicines? Are you willing to open your mind and your ears to try an approach that is specifically oriented around your particular situation? Really, what have you got to lose, you’ve tried many options, Will one more highly effective attempt change things for you as they did mine? I still, and always will, have the need for traditional medical approaches, but combined with the protocols designed for me by Daily Apple Wellness Center, I have landed on the results I’ve always strived for!

Can just (1) appointment be life changing? My answer is YES. I encourage you to research for yourself, and if you truly are willing to make a few small step-changes, then you too can feel better."

 Good Morning Amanda, I just wanted to let you know I’m back on track, thanks to you. It’s amazing how a couple really good food & supplement days can change the way you feel.

"With Amanda's guidance I began using supplements a few months ago to help with PMS symptoms. It seems like since my last baby my periods have been way different than they ever have. The supplements, as well as following the diestary suggestions Amanda made, have helped so much! The moodiness and cravings and extreme tiredness are all much better!"

What does the lab analysis entail?

Your lab work will be analyzed from a functional medicine perspective. From a functional medicine perspective we are looking to stop problems in the body BEFORE they happen, so our lab ranges are much more narrow and strict than conventional lab ranges. We are looking at your labs as a whole not just  one test a time, in doing this we are looking for patterns in all the tests that could tell the story of why you are having symptoms or point out a potential future issue that we can put a stop to before it is a problem.  Consider Functional Lab testing as a way to view the different body systems and how they interact with one another. 

What are first appointment consultations like?

 Before your first appointment you will fill out a questionnaire that will spell out your symptoms in length. You will send that questionnaire back to us before your first appointment. We will take a couple of hours to review your symptom questionnaire and do any research needed before we meet, that way we are completely prepared for our first meeting. When we do meet we will go over all of your symptoms and we will ask you questions for more details, you will have a chance to tell us your story. Based on the work we did before you came in and our conversation together we will suggest different diet and lifestyle changes and supplements to improve your current situation. We might also suggest some lab work to help us uncover the root cause of your symptoms. 

What are follow-ups like?


In our follow ups we will see how you are doing with your new health plan.  We will also review any lab work that was recommended at the first visit.  From here we are supporting you on your journey and adding to your plan or removing things from your plan as needed. What challenges you are having? We will help you overcome them. On a follow up we might add some supplements or remove some, we will discuss ways to make your lifestyle changes easier, we might share some recipes, or even set up an appointment to go grocery shopping with you, etc. After a few months we may run some more labs to see how you are doing as well. As you heal your health plan will change so we will keep fine tuning it!

What exactly do you do?

 Our training is to get to the bottom of what is causing your health issues and educate you on how to restore health so your symptoms will go away. We look at your body as a whole, not piece by piece. For example, if you came to see us with migraines, our job is to analyze your symptoms and lab work to see what is causing the migraines. We would suggest some diet, lifestyle, and supplement changes to help rid of the migraine pain as well as changes to help heal what is causing the migraines so the migraines will eventually go away for good. We are not doctors; we are not here to diagnose and treat, but rather to restore health! 

What is a BodyTalk session like?

During your initial visit, we will answer your questions about BodyTalk, explain what the session will look like and partner with you to identify your wellness goals. BodyTalk uses a gentle and relaxing form of neuromuscular biofeedback (muscle checking) and gentle tapping on specific energy points that redirect your body's healing energy. During the entire session, you will be lying face up on a massage table, fully clothed or the session can be done with the person seated. The BodyTalk practitioner will muscle check for priorities using a protocol chart that acts as a guide. This protocol chart is a helpful map of the body's physical, emotional and energetic systems. 

Your neuromuscular biofeedback responses guide the session, bringing awareness to your natural healing system and directs energy to areas that are out of balance. BodyTalk involves gentle tapping on the head and on the sternum/heart center as well as the client contacting specific energy points. All of the techniques can be done without physical contact on the body so people who are sensitive to touch enjoy BodyTalk for this reason.
