Methodology

Our foundation is the promise of resilience — the resilience to recover from pain, sorrow and life’s stressors. Each of us has the capability to recover, but life can deteriorate our resiliency skills. By mitigating the effects of difficult life transitions, urban living, and technological impact, the Resilience Lab Methodology reverses this natural pattern with a unique integrated and monitored approach to wellness. An individualized plan is designed for each Resilience Lab patient based on extensive assessment to identify personal narrative, skill strengths and deficits and symptom improvements. Key elements of the Resilience Lab Methodology include:

Physical/Medical Health

  • Primary care coordination (initial and annual blood work, Vitamin D, inflammation, etc.)
  • Chronic conditions monitoring & support (thyroid, metabolic, digestive)

Social Rhythm Metrics

  • Sleep and wake cycles (disturbances)
  • Eating schedule, quantities, nutrition

Exercise habits/deficits (daily activity)
