Functional Nutrition Counseling is a unique, holistic approach to healing using food as medicine.
A conventional medical practitioner will use medicine to treat symptoms and disease. These medicines often only mask symptoms. Rather than just manage symptoms, a functional approach looks for root cause resolution while considering the whole person, not just treating a symptom or a diagnosis.
What you eat matters! Did you know that up to 80% of your immune system resides in your gut? It makes sense that what we eat deeply affects our health. The foods we eat influence our microbiome, the diversity and composition of bacteria in our gut, ultimately affecting our immune system, which in turn affects our ultimate health.
As a Functional Nutrition Counselor, my role is to fill in the gap that currently exists in our healthcare system… thinking functionally; discovering the root cause of your symptoms and/or illness and then working together to bring resolution and healing.
We all have a desire to be well. A desire to feel our best in order to be our best for all those we serve and love, and for ourselves. If you are experiencing symptoms of chronic illness, or just looking to discover your optimal health, I would love an opportunity to come alongside you to help you discover how you can live your best life through nutrition and lifestyle modifications. We will work to discover your unique needs and desires and create your personal health goals. This is not a conventional “treat x with y” approach. It is not a quick fix. We will both commit to working hard together to get to the root cause of your symptoms, leading to resolution.
