What Is Functional Medicine? 

Functional medicine is a holistic approach to medicine that focuses on discovering the root cause of illness. Its goal is to restore the human body to optimum functioning by using a true patient-centered approach to screening, diagnosis, and treatment. 

How can I support you?

I will be an active and compassionate listener, like a health detective, helping you figure out the root cause of your health concerns. 

Instead of looking at you as an illness or cluster of symptoms, we will work together to considers your lifestyle, genetics, and environment, nutrition (epigenetics) when diagnosing and recommending treatments.  My goal with Functional Medicine, is to empower you to take an active role in your own health and to find holistic- root cause solutions that won't leave you with nasty side affects.

Why Does Functional Medicine Work And How Is It Different From Conventional Medicine?

Functional Medicine views each patient as a unique human being whose biochemistry is influenced by genetics and their particular environment. Sleep, nutrition, stress management, relationships, genetics, and exercise are all part of your primary nutrition. 

When there is a deficiency or excess in any of these areas you may experience irregularities in your hormones, energy levels or general state of mental clarity or happiness. Functional Medicine looks at your health from a holistic perspective and aims to create balance where it may be needed.

Conventional medicine looks at health concerns and compartmentalizes the symptoms, often without addressing the root cause. Although you may get short term results to acute problems with medications, the underlying root cause and the problems causing your symptoms may not be understood or resolved.

What will happen in my first appointment?

I will spend about an hour and a half with you for your first appointment, via tele-health or in person.  I will actively listen and collect information needed to create a customized treatment plan. You’ll be asked about daily habits, prior illnesses, environmental exposures, and genetics. I may recommend specific lab tests, including blood, saliva, urine or stool, to determine how your systems are functioning. You will then be scheduled for a follow up session to review your lab work results and receive your specific treatment protocols. This may include nutritional recommendations, herbs, nutrition and formulas, exercise and stress management techniques or  botanical medicines. 

Are you ready to finally understand why you live with pain, limited energy, or simply don’t enjoy your life as much as you could? Do you know your health could be better?
