“My interest in functional medicine started when I began to see that the traditional medical model had limitations in its ability to help patients overcome chronic disease and create sustainable wellness. Functional medicine uses a systems biology perspective and prioritizes identifying and treating the root causes of health problems, rather than prescribing more and more medicines to control symptoms of systemic dysfunction."
"Specialized testing or supplements can be part of a functional medicine approach when appropriate, but lasting solutions often come from working together to optimize sleep, exercise, stress management, nutrition and personal relationships so that your body can heal itself. You know your body best. I do my best to connect you with resources that will really work for you, especially when you have tried many treatments already.”
