Functional Medicine

Dr. Russell’s approach to healing is called Functional Medicine.

Conventional medicine recognizes your symptoms, identifies an illness, and the doctor develops a treatment plan. The treatments work, as long as you continue the medication.

On the other hand, Functional Medicine treats the person instead of the symptoms. Diseases such as auto-immune conditions, cancer, or fibromyalgia, the team contends, are only the surface manifestation of altered physiology below. In almost every case, the cause is some kind of dysfunction, interference, deficiency, or imbalance of the body’s systems.

Dr. Russell embraces Faith-based concepts in his approach to wellness and the belief that true health is to be found in returning the body to its natural, harmonious state.

Passion Meets Compassion

The team can test for almost anything at the Natural Healing Center — offering blood chemistry tests, autoimmune panels, and genetic testing. They can do hormone, stool, hair, and even live blood analysis!

Among the therapeutic techniques you can expect to experience at the Natural Healing Center are red light therapy, dry-needling, and individual massage.

At your first appointment, Dr. Russell or Dr. Augustyniak will take an in-depth look at your health history, including any past lab tests or medical records. They’ll evaluate symptoms and your family history, as well as diet and lifestyle. Then, they’ll work with you to build a treatment plan that identifies — and treats — the actual underlying cause of your issues.

The team at the Natural Healing Center includes practitioner Dr. Julia Augustyniak, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State, and Amy Christenson, personal trainer and licensed sports and medical massage therapist. Barbara Dickenson, a licensed massage therapist who holds a Bachelor's Degree and an Associate Degree in Applied Science, is another core member of the team.

The team at Natural Healing Center in North Texas has a powerful mission: to bring complete wholeness and everlasting change to all of their patients.
