What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine is a whole-body approach to disease prevention and health restoration and looks "upstream" to determine the root cause(s) of symptoms and diseases.
Nothing happens in isolation within the body. For example, skin issues can be directly related to imbalances within the gastrointestinal tract and painful joints can be caused by food intolerances (this is different than food allergies).
Everyone is unique and it takes a highly individualized approach to correct the underlying dysfunctions and imbalances within the body. In some cases, health can be completely restored after years of problems.
What is it Like to Work With Me?
We will work as a collaborative team and take a deep dive into your health history, lifestyle, current symptoms, and lab work. I'll create a lifestyle plan which may include changes in food, supplements, movement, sleep, and stress.
I work in a therapeutic partnership with all of my clients- team work makes the dream work. Cliché but very true when it comes to restoring health. It’s not a journey to do alone. I’m your co-pilot and can coach you through what to do and how to do it but you are in the driver’s seat to make the changes in your life happen.
