What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is ALL about YOU!  You become an empowered partner in your healthcare. as we dig to uncover the root causes of the symptoms you are struggling with. We investigate and identify imbalances in how your body systems are functioning, and look for other internal and external factors that all work together to affect how your body functions so that we can optimize your health.

Instead of merely masking your symptoms, we dig deep to identify their causes and resolve those issues by removing triggers and supporting healing with nutritional therapies and lifestyle medicine. By resolving the underlying issues, the body gets into balance and symptoms are naturally reduced or eliminated.

My goal is to make you well!!  We focus on  achieving long term results with a individualized program based on where you are and where you want to go. We identify: the WHAT – what is happening in your body; the WHY – uncovering the root causes and triggers; the HOW – what needs to be done to support your healing and how you do that (your personalized plan for optimal results). 

Lack of energy, chronic pain, brain fog, digestive issues, cardiovascular issues, gut health issues and more interfere with your ability to enjoy your days to the fullest, or even to get the basics done when you need to sometimes.  Or maybe you're watching your labs moving in the direction of outright disease , and you don't know why, or how to connect the dots between the different measures, and you want to be proactive and STAY healthy!  This systems biology approach that is Functional Medicine finds the root causes so the body can re-balance and heal itself! 

YOU want to stay strong and be well enough to be able to live the life you really want to LIVE long into your future!!   Whether you are being proactive, or have outright disease, this system optimizes your health.  You become a partner with your clinician who uses your story to create your personalized program for change.  Let us help you be proactive so that you can LIVE the life you truly want to live, healthy, happy and strong!

“I hit my bottom when I had to make a few trips to the ER Walk-in Clinic.

I had major gas pains which were all the way up into my chest. Sometimes it was unbearable to even move. I have been so miserable and having a hard time existing and living my everyday life.

Then I found Nancy. She has given me my life back. I am happy! So happy! I am calm and not so easy to fly off the handle. I can live in the moment. I started running again. I lost 10 lbs. No stomach ache, no gas or diarrhea. I feel great! I had no idea how food could have related so much to all of these issues or had so much control over my body.”
