WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION?
Functional and Holistic Nutrition is nutrition-based care that is focused on building health by restoring the proper physiological functioning of the body.
The principled approach used by Functional Nutritionists involves evaluating each client through a holistic lens and then working together to design a customized diet and lifestyle treatment plan aimed at achieving whole body wellness.
Functional Nutrition is for anyone suffering from a variety of complex issues, chronic disease or simply for those that want to improve their overall health and well-being. While Functional Nutrition does not treat disease, it does work to support the body's innate ability to heal itself. Our programs empower individuals to take back control of their health by educating them on how to treat the whole person and not just an array of symptoms.
HOW CAN YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES BENEFIT FROM FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION?
If you were asked to give an honest assessment of your health and wellness today, how would you rate yourself? All too often, many of us spend the majority of our lives suffering from the adverse effects of poor health.
Over time, poor health leads to a host of irritating symptoms and/or chronic disease. When these symptoms begin to interfere with our daily life, our first plan of attack is to seek medical care. In most cases, conventional healthcare succeeds at providing relief by focusing on the narrow range of patient symptoms. Understanding, however, the underlying or root causes for those symptoms requires a more comprehensive patient history and analysis.
The Functional Nutrition approach views chronic disease as a manifestation of underlying nutritional and metabolic imbalances and/or toxicities. As a Functional Nutritionist, our client care begins by analyzing all the contributing outliers of a person’s health, along with the current symptoms affecting them. This assessment includes evaluating our client’s current diet, lifestyle, environmental exposures, illness/medical history, family history, toxic exposure, history of antibiotic use, etc. With a complete client history, along with functional medicine tests and lab work, our approach can then be utilized to build a personalized nutrition and supplement based treatment plan that will help you achieve what you've always wanted:
