The journey to health can be as subtle as the journey to illness or disease. It takes a partnership: my guidance and support and your commitment and patience, which will lead you back to optimal health. Your goals may be pain-free digestion, increased energy, vibrant immune system, healthy weight and body composition, and/or restful sleep. These are all attainable. We will identify and address the root causes of why your body is out of balance. Once I review your information I’ll be able to recommend a program that will provide the best support for you meeting your goals.
Your journey will not look like anyone else’s. It starts with you completing a comprehensive intake and health appraisal that allows me to get to know you better and guide the development of a plan that will best meet your goals.
Completion of a 7-Day Diet Diary will help me learn more about your food choices, where you may have nutrient deficiencies, and about other aspects of your lifestyle.
Lab work tells us a lot! I review your labs from a functional medicine perspective, and in combination with other assessment tools will help provide the best framework for developing a program that will bring you lasting results. Depending on your symptoms, health appraisal and traditional lab results, it may be necessary to also run other functional laboratory and digestive tests.
Unfortunately, the food we eat does not always provide enough of the nutrients our bodies need to function efficiently and effectively, especially when our body systems are compromised with illness or disease.
