Functional Medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease, so that you can get well and stay well. Instead of focusing on the disease or an isolated set of symptoms, we shift the focus to the individual in front of us and practice a more patient-centered approach. An initial intake can take up to 90 minutes where a thorough history is taken looking at the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and chronic disease.
As a functional medicine practitioner, I am able to treat a wide variety of health problems, including (but not limited to):
Biotoxin illness/Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS)
Digestive disorders (IBD, IBS, GERD/Reflux)
Environmental and food allergies
Female disorders (PMS, Menopause, Infertility, PCOS)
Mercury and heavy metal toxicity
Metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, insulin resistance
Migraines and headaches
MS (Multiple Sclerosis)
Overweight and obesity
Sleep disorders and insomnia
A functional medicine assessment employs comprehensive testing to formulate a treatment plan that is custom to YOU.
