Holistic. Personalized. Affordable
Get to the root of your chronic illness and achieve improvement through an approach involving nutrition, lifestyle and Functional Medicine.
Let me paint you a picture. You develop symptoms or have a chronic disease and visit a physician. They see you very briefly, run some lab tests and prescribe some medications. But you don’t really have an answer of what’s wrong, or more importantly why! Maybe you were told it’s nothing to worry about or that you’re just getting older or that it’s all in your head. Maybe no one took the time to listen to you. You have a deep feeling that something is wrong and needs to be fixed. Sound familiar?
The picture I just painted is exactly how our healthcare system works right now for chronic disease. A lack of quality time with a physician, lack of personalized approach and an over emphasis on prescription medication without taking a holistic approach. I should know the conventional system, because I was trained in it. During my training, I was fortunate to witness the many positive aspects of our healthcare system when it comes to handling acute care, such as trauma, strokes, heart attacks etc. However, when it comes to chronic disease and symptoms that have a less obvious cause, our system does not have an approach that gets to the root of the issue.
That’s why I started this practice. My approach aims to look at the root cause rather than focusing on individual symptoms. I see the individual as a whole, and determine how best to address the underlying physiologic disturbances that led to the development of disease processes and how best to rebalance the body. I includes aspects of diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress relief and sleep as well as more advanced testing. More and more people are waking up to the realization that this model is the best approach for chronic disease. I welcome you to find out more below!
