We are often asked can you treat
thyroid conditions?

Our answer is always, YES! We can confidently answer yes because at IWG, we believe that there is a cause for every effect which means there is an answer to your array of symptoms. Most importantly, there is a solution to your cause which will allow you to heal and have the knowledge to prevent it from arising in the future.

We are also asked, “What is it like to work with IWG?” All of our clients will go through an Onboarding Process which includes a rigorous review of systems and state of the art testing that is mostly done in-house. Our testing will uncover the root to your symptoms which will allow us to confidently and specifically construct a treatment plan. Our services can be accessed remotely so keep reading if you are not local to the area.

We have various programs to appropriately pair you with a doctor that is deeply knowledgeable and passionate about your specific needs.

But don't just take our word for it!

We know that it is an extraordinary honor to transform people’s lives. We are amazed and moved by countless people who tell us that this work has created a profound and meaningful change in their life. Our work opens people up emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It inspires people to take action on their dreams and live lives they once only imagined.


They want to answers and to uncover the root to their mystery symptoms

Brian was a 23 year old male who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at 9 years old. Throughout his life he struggled with his diet. Almost everything Brian ate irritated his gut....
Although he had some bloating in the lower abdominal region, most of his complaints were in the upper gastrointestinal tract. After seeing multiple physicians as a child and undergoing multiple scope surgeries Brian and his family received little information about his diagnosis. As Brian grew up his symptoms only escalated and again they received no education on diet or nutrition. Instead they put him on an immunosuppressive and chemotherapy drug to manage symptoms. The drugs were masking his gastrointestinal symptoms and after a year of taking the medication Brian was getting sick all the time. The drugs were suppressing his immune system and allowing him to feel better even though he was getting worse.
“I feel so grateful for finding IWG. My whole life I was told I had Crohn’s Disease and handed medication after medication. IWG was able to connect the dots to what was truly going on with my gastrointestinal system and I am forever grateful”.


Want more out of their healthcare experience. They demand to be heard, to be cared for, and want a relentless team that will stop at nothing to get results

Meet Jenn. Jenn had a career, a husband, a great home, and generally a life she loved. She worked hard and put many people before herself. She enjoyed taking care of everyone else and making an impact on the world through her career....
As she toyed with the idea of starting a family of her own, she decided to put that on hold and take a high demand promotion. She knew it would be a lot of work but she loved what she did.
She suddenly started having a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, lethargy which then turned into feeling completely debilitated and unable to get out of bed. It’s as if her world stopped. She had to leave her job, go on disability, and the thought of starting a family was impossible. She started seeing multiple doctors and received little information and no successful treatment options. By the time she arrived at IWG, she had seen over 30 doctors and spent close to $100,000. Despite her effort, she was sicker than when this all started.
Despite being extremely grateful and excited for this clarity after years of failed treatment, she had only a flicker of hope left. At this point, we knew that this was not just about healing her dis-ease but resolving her fears that she was going to be sick forever. Our approach is not just about providing the ability to heal but to make a profound shift mentally and emotionally that will transform your life forever. After 2 months of treatment, the patient (who is normally bedridden) was able to drive on her own and go to a family event which she had been unable to do for 8 years.
Her illness turned out to be a blessing in disguise, she was able to move away from a job that she was good at but didn't truly love. Her healing journey played a significant role in realizing her values which allowed her to move into a career and life that she wakes up excited to live. Despite the complexity of her case, when you understand the root cause, you can heal any “disease.”


They want to uplevel their health and their lives

Meet Abigail. Abby had a job that she absolutely loved, a budding singing/acting career, and adored the location she lived. She worked hard and at the end of the day felt totally exhausted....
Even though she loved her job and passionate about her growing career, the stress was rather overwhelming. She didn’t mind the work, and just kept pushing through it each day.
She suddenly started having a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, drastic changes in her sleep, which exacerbated her already tired feeling throughout the day. Due to a complication from a dental jaw procedure she had when she was younger, she was also experiencing long term jaw pain, severe clicking, clenching, and misalignment to the extent that she was unable to close her jaw completely. This affected her ability to chew comfortably, yawn, and sing to her best ability. With added family stress, the jaw pain was getting worse.
In beginning gentle, specific Chiropractic care in conjunction with Craniosacral Therapy, Abby quickly saw a reduction in jaw pain, improvement in the clicking, and improved emotions. She “felt like she was reborn,” and “was a completely different person now.” She was able to chew and sing without pain, her energy during the day was markedly better, and she had a glow about her that was a recognizable change. She previously got to the point that she honestly thought that “this is just the way it's going to be,” and that her jaw pain and clicking would be there forever. Abby no longer has that thought in her head, and is so much happier and full of life.

Still have questions? We have you covered.

99% of the time the answer is yes, our approach allows us to pinpoint the cause to reverse the effects.  This is what allows us to treat various conditions successfully.

Our approach is comprehensive and customized to every patient.  Our diagnostics and analysis dictate the treatment approach.

The doctors of IWG are Functional Medicine Practitioners and Doctors of Chiropractic. The received their doctorates from Life West Chiropractic College. Post doctorate education and training is in Functional Medicine, Biological Medicine, Craniosacral Therapy, Clinical Nutrition, Functional Neurology, and Energy Medicine.

We do not prescribe or make recommendations about prescription medications or controlled substances. IWG practitioners will collaborate with your prescribing medical doctor to manage all medications.

We serve people, not insurance providers. We remove the middle-man, co-pays, and unpleasant surprises [denials]. Insurance may cover some testing and services but not all. This program in general is considered above the standard of care and therefore elective as far as the insurance industry is concerned. We do everything we can to make sure Functional Medicine is affordable, and available to everyone including the ability to use Flexible Savings Accounts and Health Savings Accounts.

Yes, we offer long-distance consultations (national and international) via telephone or webcam (Skype or Google Chat) for those who live outside of the NJ Area. We offer Immersion Weeks for long distance clients at our NJ office.

This depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, how long you’ve had it, how much time, energy and attention you’re willing to devote to treatment, and how well you respond to treatment. In general, health programs for chronic illnesses last between three and six months, but most patients start seeing improvement within the first month. Patients may elect to continue with a maintenance program after their initial treatment plan is finished.

A majority of our patients have an 60-80% (or more) reduction in symptoms within the 1st 3 months of care. There are select cases that are more complex which will extend their healing process.

Functional Medicine is not just for the wealthy. Most of our patients are working class people who want to get healthy and feel great. We do not accept every patient. We only want to take on patients we believe we can improve their overall health. The application process would start with setting up an initial free phone evaluation. If you are accepted into the program, price depends on several factors, including the complexity of your condition, the extent of lab testing required, the combination of natural medicines and other therapies needed during treatment, and the number of consultations you receive. We do everything we can to make Functional Medicine affordable to the average person. Again, most if not all of our patients are normal, working class people who want to improve their health.

Yes. We’ve always backed our program with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Here’s how it works. Experience your initial consultation with one of our doctors. If you no longer feel that IWG is right for you, send us an email or call our client services team. After your initial consultation, if you decide to not move forward, your onboarding fee will be returned with the cost of the exam [$350} deducted.

The best way to determine whether you would be a good fit is to schedule an phone evaluation. This gives us an opportunity to learn more about your goals and needs, and gives you the chance to ask us any questions you might have. There’s no obligation. Then we can find out if a full Functional Medicine consultation with me is right for you. During the comprehensive consultation with me we would go over your health history in detail, and go over your past labs that you would send us before your consultation, in detail. We love our job and take Functional Medicine very seriously and care for our patients deeply. Working with them over the months they are with us, they become our friends and like family to us. We are humbled and honored to be a part of their journey into health.
