Functional Nutrition is nutrition-based health care that focuses on building health by restoring proper physiological functioning of the body. When you have multiple symptoms, they are clues to the ways in which your body is not functioning the way it should be. Rather than suppress those symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, we want to “read” those symptoms to understand which systems of your body need support to get back on track and get you healthy again.

By looking at your whole picture — diet, symptoms, illness history, medications, lifestyle, stress, lab work, toxic exposure, history of antibiotic use, etc., we are able to put together an overall plan. That plan serves as a trail map of the nutrition your body needs to regain health and prevent illness.

How to get started

  • Plan on 60-90 minutes for the first visit so we can throughly review your situation and what has led up to it.
  • Often I will suggest blood, urine tests or stool analysis to help identify nutrient imbalances or imbalances in gut microbes. These are things we know give rise to many / most symptoms and are key tools to creating an individulaized plan. Individual plans include eating guidelines based on your health needs, supplement recommendations if needed, lifestyle recommendations, support resources.
  • The cost of time spent reviewing test results and creating your plan is built into the first visit cost.
