Functional Nutrition is focused on building health by restoring proper physiological functioning of the body. Seemingly unrelated signs and symptoms give clues about the underlying cause of illness or disease. Instead of suppressing the symptoms with natural or pharmaceutical agents, I piece them together to get a picture of the root cause(s) and create a plan offering the appropriate support.
Together, we explore your personal story and look at diet, symptoms and physical signs, health history, lab work, lifestyle, activity, family and social life, toxin exposures, stress, sleep, etc. to develop an approach that is right for you.

What does Holistic Mean? “The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts”
In modern Western medicine, we tend to treat parts of a person- dividing up care and denying the interconnectedness of our bodies. Holistic means that the person as a whole is treated, with attention paid to all aspects of the human experience- biological, psychological, social, spiritual and environmental.
