How is functional medicine different?

Functional Medicine is true health care, unlike the disease care model of Conventional Medicine. We now have the knowledge to go beyond the current crisis care model and offer patients a much better approach to their health. We can incorporate lifestyle medicine, nutrition, supplements, stress reduction and exercise to improve the functioning of organs as a means of preventing disease and creating vibrant, sustainable health. We can address the healthcare needs of the 21st century!!

What is the functional medicine partnership?

Working with a dietitian who is trained in functional medicine requires the patient to be more involved with the healthcare process, establishing a life-long partnership with your provider. While we provide the recommendations and tools to make lifestyle changes for optimal health, you take the responsibility to modify your habits.

Who can benefit from the functional medicine approach to nutrition counseling?

Everyone!

Do you do laboratory testing?

Based on the information that you provide at your appointment, your health status, and your budget, we may recommend functional medicine testing to help guide your nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. Some labs are able to send a phlebotomist to your home to draw your blood.
