Welcome to Flourish Clinic. Our specialty is treating CFS in the Calgary area.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is the most poorly understood and treated condition in all of medicine.
Conventional medicine will never help you overcome chronic fatigue. Instead, you’ll be dependent on multiple medications with no known studies on how those medications interact with each other. Your medications will likely cause side effects. Then you’ll be prescribed more medication for the side effects. It’s an endless cycle of symptom chasing.
Alternative medicine isn’t much better. Sure, you’ll avoid long-term use of medications, but you’ll be left guessing at what is actually causing your fatigue. Even alternative medicine neglects to identify and treat the root cause of CFS.
Following alternative medicine, conventional medicine, or some combination of the two will likely result in a great deal of frustration. You’ll be frustrated at the results – or lack thereof. You’ll be frustrated at all the time and money you’ve invested into weird diet plans, supplements, herbs, or meditation techniques.
If both alternative and conventional medicine fail to effectively treat CFS, what are you to do?
Enter Functional Medicine…
How we properly treat CFS in Calgary
The inherent problem with both alternative and conventional medicine’s approach to CFS is that both systems of medicine neglect to identify and treat the underlying or root cause. Even when they think they do.
When you don’t treat the underlying or root cause of CFS, no amount of supplements or medication is going to improve your energy. This is why your chronic fatigue never seems to improve.
Functional medicine goes deeper into the evaluation of your fatigue. Functional medicine unearths the root cause. Once you treat the root cause, your fatigue improves. It’s as simple as that.
At Flourish Clinic, we use the most advanced functional medicine testing to accurately identify and treat the root cause of your CFS.

Helping you better understand your fatigue
Every week, I hear stories of how confusing CFS is. If you’re like most of our patients, you don’t know where to turn for help.
One website says a keto diet is the best nutrition plan for CFS. But five minutes later you find another website that says keto diets are the worst possible eating plans for someone with CFS.

How we help you overcome fatigue in Calgary
We follow a four-step process in all of our chronic fatigue treatment protocols. The four steps to move you from fatigued to flourishing include:
1. Identify your fatigue-fighting nutrition plan
No templates here. We’ve developed a proprietary system to help you learn exactly which foods work with your body.
2. Identify and remove hidden gut issues
Even though your family doc or specialist says your gut is fine, most people dealing with chronic fatigue have hidden gut issues. Until these are identified and resolved, your fatigue will remain.
3. Balance your stress hormones
Being tired for a long time creates an imbalance in your stress hormones. An imbalance in these hormones will prevent your body from healing – no matter what you do.
4. Uncover the hidden toxins making you sick
Strange substances like mold, heavy metals, and other environmental toxins could be making you sick and tired. Until these are removed, you’re not going to get better.
It’s not that any one of these steps has magical healing powers. It’s the synergy that occurs when your practitioner helps you implement each of these steps in the correct order at the appropriate time. That’s when you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I know or have worked with hundreds of alternative medicine practitioners. And I’ve never seen any of them implement these four steps into a cohesive treatment plan for their patients.
Some offer food allergy/sensitivity testing but once the offending foods are removed they don’t know what to do if the fatigue remains.
Others specialize in gut health. But these knowledgeable practitioners forget about the stress hormones and hidden toxins.
Most practitioners know about stress hormones. But none of them know the 3 hidden causes behind them. Instead, they load you up with herbs and supplements. None of which end up improving your energy over the long-term.
I’ve not yet met any practitioners knowledgeable in the realm of environmental toxins. Weird toxins are all too often the root cause of strange illnesses like adrenal fatigue. Your condition will not improve until these toxins are identified and removed.
Why you should consider working with Flourish Clinic
Care and mastery are what make the difference here at Flourish Clinic.
By the time any of our patients find us, they’ll – on average – have seen 5 other healthcare providers. These range from family docs and specialists to energy healers and shamans.
Those working in conventional medical possess a great deal of mastery. But the care found in these clinics is almost non-existent.
In alternative medicine, you’ll often come across healers who truly care about your well-being – sometimes to a fault. But all too often this high level of care comes with a low level of mastery or understanding of your illness.
In order to overcome your illness, you need an abundance of care. And a practitioner with an expert level of understanding – or mastery – over your particular illness.
Care and Mastery are the foundation of the Flourish Framework. It’s these values that consistently gets us outstanding patient outcomes. Heart and brain synergy.
We’ve spent thousands of hours studying adrenal fatigue. No one in the Calgary area has an in-depth understanding and knowledge needed to help you overcome your fatigue.
