The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
Learning about Functional Medicine helped me revitalize my life and my health. I have learned to heal myself and those around me by simply nourishing the body and mind using Functional Medicine. I can guide and motivate individuals to live up to their health goals and improve their lifestyles, based on their true values. I specialize in synchronizing the mind, body, and soul to create a healthier, happier, more balanced version of you. My role is to help you easily adhere to a gradual life-style change, and to become the best possible version of yourself. Often people experience a gap between what they know they need to do to be healthy and actually doing it. Health and lifestyle changes can be incredibly difficult to stick to on your own, therefore I make it my priority to help you find the best ways to achieve your personal health goals, to evolve to new levels of health and happiness!
