Functional Nutrition

I specialize in an area of nutrition called Functional Nutrition, a key element of Functional Medicine. 
Functional Nutrition focuses on creating balance between the body's systems, realizing the body's systems are mutually related and dependent on each other to function optimally. The intention of functional nutrition is to treat the whole person with the goal of preventing chronic disease, or if chronic disease is already present, addressing the underlying causes of one's symptoms, and improving health and quality of life as much as possible.
 
Functional Nutrition and Functional Medicine take into account an individual's genetic makeup and life experiences, their diet, lifestyle and environmental influences as well as their medical history, medications, supplements, and both traditional and functional laboratory values to determine the best approach to healing.
