Educate Empower and Evolve

Spring is in the air!!! I am so ready and excited for the change into Spring. I can hear the birds starting up in the morning, it has been getting warmer to get out and be active, and it is a good time for change, a catalyst to focus on internal and external changes to benefit our personal Wellness and Health goals. Working on becoming the best versions of ourselves.

I had the wonderful opportunity recently to meet with one of our newest partners, and I am really excited to share with you about Ms. Brenna Galves who owns and operates Reset Medical Solutions. I hope I can do justice to the palpable passion you can feel when she shares her vision, expertise, and ambition to Educate, Empower, and Evolve her clients and the community into better Health and Wellness.              

Ms. Galves was originally driven to become a Nurse. Born and raised in San Diego, CA she also had an abundant community filled with alternative sources of health and wellness. “My mom would take me to herbal shops before antibiotics”, she mentioned. When asked what she wanted to do in the hospital as a nurse she would convey to her family and peers that, “I want to be on a floor that would help people heal.” Though she knew that healing wasn’t always the case in the hospital setting.

When she realized that the path of a nurse in that setting would not give her the satisfaction of her driven mission to heal the world, the opportunity arose for her to attend an Acupuncture school in San Diego, where some of the best Acupuncture Schools are located. She received her Associates Degree then quickly dived right into her Masters Degree where she was not only educated in acupuncture, but intensively learning over 350+ individual herbal medicines, compounding herbal remedies, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Acupressure, Cupping, Reiki, Lymphatic Activation, “Tui Na” Massage, and integration of sound in healing to touch on a few. 

Eight years later her passions still remain the same, if not more galvanized by our current system of health care. Where there exists a fundamental problem in our current healthcare system that treats symptoms with a lot of patients finding themselves on a life long regiment of prescription medications, often not being reevaluated throughout their lifespan on necessity or the possibility of alternatives that may have fewer side effects on the body’s systems as a whole.    

Ms. Galves expresses, “My spirit is irritated, you come as a helper to help people, and you see what we’re being offered (health care options) and it’s irritating. My spirit is irritated because I know that there’s better for people, and it’s just gotten so chaotic now we all can’t ignore it. Being an advocate for people… and truly talking about preventative medicine with them, is when we will truly see change.” 

Ms. Galves is not against western medicine at all, she conveys “Western medicine has done an amazing job in a certain capacity… though there needs to be an understanding of when and where each is needed”. Ms. Galves actually loves collaborating with Physicians, most of whom she works with see the need for true preventative medicine for their mutual clients.

Educate Empower and Evolve

For example some of that collaborative work is to help clients get off of long term prescription medication and to lessen those side effects that accompany that medication regimen. She talks about the importance of this kind of collaboration to uniquely meet the needs of her clients and balancing the right time and place for both Western and Traditional Medicine. 

A lot of the clients that walk through her door feel powerless, her goal, her mission, is to meet them where they are at, to best understand what they need, and Educate, Empower, and Evolve their personal health and wellness giving them advocacy and agency. She calls it the three “E’s”

Educate, Empower, and Evolve”

  1. Educate her clients and the community, on the Traditional and Scientific approach to discovering true Health and Wellness.
  1. Empower clients with options to their care, in the amazingness of their body, understanding that there can be alternatives to a lifetime of prescription medications or only being told that surgery, or enduring chronic pain is their only option, to have a voice and say in their Health and Wellness. 
  1. Evolving of personal health and wellness on an individual level as well as a systems approach to community and societal Health Care as a whole.

The interesting part of this model is it is always in motion, once a client feels that their health has Evolved the cycle may return to Educate or Empower to further advance a clients personal health goals or in the development of new goals.

Part of her education is what she describes as “Tradition meets Science” listen to how she describes this kind of integration:

          A Traditional approach to Health and Wellness is supporting the body’s natural pathways and immune response systems to correct imbalances occurring in the physiology of the body. It is understanding the science and the physiological body processes, identifying possible dysfunction and/or dysregulation and how to naturally support the body’s own ability to correct those internal pathways naturally and flourish to its homeostatic natural state. Seeking to understand the root cause of a client’s alignments and correcting that, instead of just focusing on relieving symptoms while still enduring the underlying dysfunction. With the use of natural dietary recommendations, lifestyle adjustments, herbology to replenish essential nutrients, proteins, amino acids, minerals, etc. along with other modalities like lymphatic drainage, cupping, and acupuncture to be able to get to the root of each clients’ unique needs. 

A new client experience is a balance between a thorough 90 minute intake assessment through consultation, a thorough health history, and client’s personal perceptions about their health. Ms. Galves then assesses what their body is actually saying through a thorough physical assessment to better understand what parallels between the two assessments as well as what the objective signs that the body is conveying that hadn’t been indicated during the verbal and written consultation portion of a new client assessment. Some of her most helpful intake questions are:

  1. In your opinion what has happened to your health?
  2. When was the last time in your life that you felt 100% with your health?
  3. What are your top 3 health care goals in the next year?

          These questions are her most helpful in being able to meet clients where they’re at in their self-care and wellness journey. These questions are continually readdressed, not only on the initial intake assessment but are reevaluated during every appointment to ensure the client’s goals are guiding the direction of care.

At Reset Medical Solutions, based on the aforementioned assessments, clients may be recommended for a variety of treatment options or an integration of several, some of those include Acupuncture; Reiki; Cupping; Herbology; An integration of Acupuncture, Message, and “Tui Na” Soft Tissue work; Whole Body Cosmetic Wellness; Lymphatic Activation; Sound Bathing; and Health Coaching to name a few. 

Educate Empower and Evolve

                   She conveys that she doesn’t want to overload herself, and through this eight (8) year journey so far, she continually receives abundance and signs in the fruition of her mission and goals. This seems to be what continues to propel her to heights not often taken on by small business owners. What felt like a title wave of complex endeavors ahead, she talks about her goals with a calmness and excitement that was felt across the room. It’s as if her internal compass has always pointed to True North and she listened, even in the toughest parts of her journey. 

          Locally, Ms. Glaves plans to expand her clinical treatment space, doubling it in size, adding some group work sessions, integrating a Registered Nurse Licensed Clinical Nutritionist in her practice, and is also hosting a health fair coming up in Johnstown, CO in May 2023. 

          She is looking to grow her connections with local community partners, establishing an integrative health network among like-minded community health providers, physicians, and the Chamber of Commerce, and with this network her biggest goal is the creation of an Integrative Hospital here in Northern Colorado. 

Educate Empower and Evolve

Ms. Galves has also been presented the opportunity to be on a non-profit board for medicine, and through that connection she is opening up a satellite Clinic and Wellness Center in the mountains of southern CO near Monument Lake off the Legends Hwy, 30min into the mountains from Trinidad, CO.

          She is also working on putting together a 3 day wellness festival there, bringing together providers and professionals from all over the nation, along with the community, speakers and experts in the field of Traditional Medicine, Integrative Care, Health and Wellness, all with the goal to come together to share on best practices so that this collaborative knowledge and expertise can be brought back to their own communities to help Educate, Empower, and Evolve!

      We’re excited to have Reset Medical Solutions as a trusted partner with Pure Drip IV Health and Wellness, and recommend, if you’re on a journey of self-care, health, and wellness, to take a moment and check her out!

Biological Dentistry: seek the safest least toxic way to treatment.

ALOHA! ~ 

As I continue down this road of discovering my personal Wellness and Health Goals, one of the health focused areas I personally take to heart is good dental health. 

We often don’t realize how our dental health is so closely integrated with our total body health and what systemic effects it can have from our Heart Health, Endocrine System, to our Respiratory Function, Chronic Systemic Inflammation, and so much more!  

www.agd.org/docs/default-source/self-instruction-(gendent)/gendent_nd17_aafp_kane.pdf


One of the most recent reviews I’ve done is on “Biological Dentistry”. Sure, I know what you might be thinking, isn’t dentistry biological anyway? What’s the difference from my current dentist to someone who practices Biological Dentistry?

iaomt.org/intro-articles-biological-dentistry/


The more I’ve looked into it, Biological Dentistry is a specific approach to how care is planned for each client and the fundamentals on how dentistry is approached. It could be from eliminating metal fillings and replacing them with a more biocompatible material to recommendations to help the body’s natural pathways support good dental hygiene and immune support. The goal is to support the body’s natural processes of detoxifying and eliminating toxins, as well as support our body’s healing capabilities in the least invasive way to accomplish each patient’s dental health and goals.

To get a little science’y, it would be good to understand that Biological Dentistry first began in the mid-1980s by Dr. Gary M. Verigin and co-founder Dr. Edward Arana. They had first met at a conference at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Honolulu in 1984. During this conference they were first introduced to the study and practice of “German Biological Medicine”.

The fundamentals of German Biological Medicine was rooted in “Homotoxicology”. Here comes the technical biology:

Homotoxicology is based on the principle that diseases are caused by homotoxins. According to Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg (founder of Homotoxicology), illnesses are agent-determined reactive processes in which homotoxins can cause the body to react with inflammation. He described a homotoxin as “any substance that creates a direct or indirect toxic burden in the human organism.” The target structure of the homotoxin is the extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix or space acts as a molecular sieve between the capillary system, the lymph vessels, and the cells which are to be supplied with nutrients or have their waste removed. All substances and information reaching a cell are filtered through the molecular sieve of the extracellular matrix (ground substance). The sieve can become clogged, but can be restored to functionality through appropriate detoxification measures.”

Cell Matrix to provide example of Biological Dentistry

“Homotoxicology represents a unique synthesis of healing disciplines designed to strengthen the organs of detoxification and excretion, to remove the toxins accumulated in the extracellular matrix, to stimulate and modulate the immune system, and to regulate the whole by rebalancing the diseased body system. The methodology of homotoxicology differs from that of conventional medicine in that illness is viewed as much more than the mere presence of clinical symptoms. Homotoxicological therapy approaches the patient as a whole. It attempts to detoxify the body, to correct derailed immunological processes through immunomodulation, and to support cells and organs.”

So, back to Dr. Verigin and Dr. Arana. They wanted to develop a way to apply this “Homotoxicology” to their practice of dentistry and since their methods would parallel German Biological Medicine, the American Academy of Biological Dentistry was born. The organization continues today as the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine.
