  • What sets ALA apart?

    ALA is unique because we have merged two technologies together: Qest 4 Bio-Energetic scanning and Frequency Specific Microcurrents. ALA utilizes Qest 4 scanning to determine which therapeutic frequencies clients benefit from. Clients receive the therapeutic frequencies via a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) in the comfort of their own homes. Our clients, in particular, are successful because they receive individualized care in addition to lifestyle and nutrition support and education. 

  • Do you take insurance?

    Insurance does not cover comprehensive wellness programs, but that’s actually a good thing for all of us! Our wellness programs are designed to provide lasting results. We do not want to be limited by insurance companies, so we encourage all of our clients to make a long-term investment in their health. Doing so will foster independence and help you avoid reliance on short-term, bandaid solutions like pharmaceuticals, invasive surgeries and other painful procedures that cost way more money and time in the long run.

  • Are ALA programs affordable? 

    Yes, we have different financing options to fit most budgets. Ultimately, your investment in your health now will save you time, money, and grief in the long run. As the saying goes: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

  • Are there any risks associated with bio-energetic treatment?

    Bio-energetic treatment is non-invasive and low risk. Few individuals may experience detoxification symptoms. If you have questions regarding your program or supplements, contact your primary care physician before starting. 

  • How long until I feel better?

    The healing journey is unique to every individual. Length of recovery depends on the severity of the injury, the overall health of the individual, and the level of commitment to recovery and health. Everyone will experience a benefit immediately.

  • What types of health problems do your treatments address?

    At ALA, we will work with anyone interested in investing in their health, no matter where you are in your journey. We believe that all health conditions can benefit from our 5 pillars of health and our tools. We see patients of all ages, from all backgrounds, dealing with a variety of acute and chronic health problems, such as pain and inflammation, hormonal imbalances, gut health disorders and more.

  • Why should I trust you and not my doctors?

    I’ve been studying health since the 3rd grade – specifically how to harness the interconnections between the organs and systems of the body to help people heal. I have a Masters degree in Nutrition and have been studying wellbeing and preventative medicine for many years, while your doctors have been studying sickness, disease management and pharmaceuticals. While pharmaceuticals have their place, they can be very harming to the body and they don’t support the body’s natural healing processes. Rather, they may temporarily mask symptoms without addressing the root cause of most chronic health issues. 

    I’m not saying your doctors can’t be trusted – stay with them; they are quite valuable! But due to legal regulations, they are limited in their abilities to really help their patients. I truly want to help my patients achieve optimal health so they can live a joyous life and don’t have to rely on medications to feel better.

  • What is Qest 4 Bioenergetic Scanning?

    Qest 4 Bio-Energetic scanning is a quantum software with specialized equipment that can detect the energetic patterns of the human body. These energetic patterns can become disrupted or knocked out of tune by stress, diet, toxins, emotions, thoughts, nutritional deficiencies, the presence of pathogens, and more. Qest 4 evaluates the energetic patterns and then determines what frequencies patterns will balance the energetic patterns of the individual – much like tuning an instrument.

    The scanning process takes 30 to 45 minutes and is non-invasive and easy. Clients are scanned every 3-4 weeks to determine what their bodies need energetically and nutritionally to facilitate the healing process. 

  • What is Frequency-Specific Microcurrent (FSM)?

    By the late 1800s, many medical and osteopathic physicians in the US and UK had been using electrical therapies and frequencies for stimulating healing and for treating a great number of conditions. In 1995, Dr. Carolyn McMakin acquired a list of frequencies and a machine made in the 1920s by an osteopath in Canada. Since then, she has dedicated her life and career to teaching and researching the therapeutic effects of Frequency Specific Microcurrents (FSM). Now, FSM is being successfully used by many medical practitioners to treat myofascial pain, tendonitis, irritable bowel syndrome, nerve pain, peripheral neuropathies, arthritis, shingles, herpes, kidney stone pain, fibromyalgia, and other medical conditions associated with inflammation.

  • What are the benefits of FSM and what can I expect from my treatments?

    A frequency is the rate at which a sound wave or electronic pulse is produced. Various frequencies can potentially reduce swelling, repair tissue, and reduce pain. Depending on the tissue involved, specific frequencies will be selected to encourage natural healing of the body and pain reduction. FSM is non-invasive and painless. During the treatment, clients may feel sleepy. FSM should not be used for people with pacemakers, implanted pumps, pregnancy, or uncontrolled seizures. 

  • What is functional medicine?

    Functional medicine seeks to identify and address the root cause of health problems. Rather than simply chasing and masking symptoms, as is often the case with conventional medical treatments, we drill down into where and why dysfunction occurs and empower our clients with the 5 pillars of health. This provides the added benefit of ultimate freedom – clients can treat themselves right in the comfort of their own home and be free to work, travel, and live without becoming dependent on family members or other care providers. 

  • What are the 5 pillars of health?

    Nutrition, detoxification, gut health, physical activity and mentoring. When implemented together, and in combination with our bio-energetic treatments, they provide exceptional results for clients who are struggling with all types of inflammatory health conditions – from skin and gut disorders to hormonal imbalances and chronic pain.

  • Where is ALA Located?

    Our office is located in Albuquerque, NM, in the southeastern corner of the Montgomery and Carlisle intersection in the Carlmont Office Plaza. Take a right after the white gate and go to the southern entry.  The address is: 4300 Carlisle Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87107.

  • Do you work with long-distance clients?

    Yes. ALA does offer a home care plan so you can do the treatments on your own time in the comfort of your home.
