Functional Medicine is the practice of patient-centered wellness, not disease-centered care. It is an approach that works to reverse illness, promote health, and optimize function by addressing root causes, symptoms, and functional imbalances in the interconnected biological networks. It is founded on the principles of bio-individuality and a functional understanding of the way physical systems impact and are impacted by your individual lifestyle and life experience. Functional Medicine also incorporates the impact of social determinants, including psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of health & disease.
My approach is to use these principles to educate you on the root drivers of imbalances you may be experiencing, such as asthma/allergies, anxiety/depression/stress, autoimmune disease, headaches/migraines, sleep disorders, hypertension, IBD or IBS…. which will empower you to take control of your own health destiny.
Traditional medicine practitioners just don’t have enough time to ask the questions, discover interconnectedness in your unique body or offer you a tailored personal approach and keep you on track. I will take the time to make a deep dive to address your specific goals and the needs of your whole person.

Traditional medicine excels at acute care. If anyone needs acute care (auto accident, stroke, head trauma, fall, etc.) bring us to the nearest ER or call an ambulance! We have 100% confidence and respect for this type of care. The skills, medications, and tools for acute care are exceptional.
