Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe)

Let's Bring Medicine HOMe

Founded by Dr. Ted Achacoso, the mission of HOMe is to build a community of doctors and practitioners that will change the paradigm of health.

HOMe is Foundational Medicine: All other healthcare disciplines benefit from HOMe balancing.

HOMe is Wellness Medicine: Just because you're not sick does not mean that you are well. It only means that you are not sick. HOMe is built for optimization and resilience.

What could you do if you felt better than ever imagined?

What if you stopped getting sick all the time?

Where would you travel?

Who could you help?

Get certified. Get access to a turnkey practice platform. Have mentors facilitate every step of the way.

Medicine begins at HOMe

Allopathic Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Alternative Medicine, Complementary Medicine, and Functional Medicine are all “Illness Medicine” practices. They all diagnose and treat disease.

HOMe on the other hand, detects and corrects imbalances using the sciences of Clinical Metabolomics, Epigenetics, Bioenergetics, Gut Immune System, Exposomics, Chronobiology, and Evolutionary Medicine – subjects currently not taught in medical schools.

Don’t guess, Test!

In HOMe, there is no guessing. By enrolling in our HOMe educational and practitioner programs, we will teach you how to measure and interpret borderline deficiencies and subtle toxicities, starting with the major hormone and nutrient networks. We follow this with a deep dive into the art of balancing and optimizing using reference value ranges that are vastly different than those used in illness medicine.

Clinical Metabolomics

The metabolome represents the collection of all metabolites in a biological cell, tissue, organ or organism that are required for maintenance, growth, and optimized function. Examples include vitamins, minerals, cofactors, oxidants, antioxidants, amino acids, as well as metabolic products of cellular energy production and even gut microbiota.

Your genetic code (or genome) is static. Your Metabolome, on the other hand, reflects what is actually happening at the cellular level. And for this reason it is here where we start the process of Health Optimization.


Our environment controls the expression of our genetic code. Both our external environment as well as our internal environment will determine what genes are turned on, and which are turned off. Using HOMe, we can coax the body towards an environment that promotes optimal health.


Mitochondria power the cell, and without them, there will be no human life.

Bioenergetics focuses on measuring and improving all aspects of cellular energy function, starting at the mitochondrial level, and climbing all the way up to your daily dietary protocol.

The Gut Immune System

Our gut microbiota play a vital role in our health and immune system function. They are far from passive observers and have the potential to do great harm or be trusted allies.

HOMe teaches how to measure and balance gut dysbiosis. The result is decreased inflammation and a strengthened immune system capable of withstanding the stressors of the modern world.


In the modern world, toxins such as heavy metals are ubiquitous. Detecting and ridding the brain and body of these toxins gives it a clean slate upon which metabolic processes can function efficiently.


We sleep. We wake. We work. We take a break ... We play. We share. We eat. We come to meet ... And when day is done, we welcome sleep again.

All biological systems go through cycles in time. By respecting those cycles, we are "swimming with the current", and optimal health is much easier to attain.

Evolutionary Medicine

The machine that is the human body was built over many millions of years, under a wide variety of conditions. Keeping our evolutionary past in mind helps us make the dietary and lifestyle changes needed to build well-being in the present and through to the future.

Before you optimize, You have to measure.

The Science of HOMe is in measuring metabolites, especially the major hormone and nutrient networks. We compare these measures to the optimal ranges seen in healthy adults aged 21 to 30, and then balance them using active forms of nutrients and bio-identical hormones. We call this process Network-wide Range Shifting.

The Art of HOMe is in modulating the entire network of the body, such that borderline deficiencies and subtle toxicities are corrected. Improvement in well-being, resilience, and health follows naturally.
