Since 1993, it’s been a privilege to help so many on the road to health and to see the way their lives are so wonderfully impacted. I take an individualized approach to each person who comes to me for treatment, trying to carefully listen so that what I do can truly make a difference in their lives.
Today we have an epidemic of disease and poor health that can’t be reversed with medications alone. In fact, the diet and lifestyle of the American patient is often at the root of many drug interventions and functional disorders. Chinese Medicine not only addresses the existing disease, but can also prevent illness and boost immunity. When combining ancient Chinese Medicine principles with modern Functional Nutrition research, illness can be reversed, blood work normalizes, the need for medicine is reduced, and a person can feel greater energy and joy. Prescribing a Chinese Herbal formula for one’s individual body type helps positive change take effect more quickly.
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION ? Functional nutrition emphasizes the importance of high-quality foods and phytonutrient diversity to address clinical imbalances and move people to highest expressions of health. Food is powerful medicine and we harness it’s power to heal. It’s an individualized approach to rebuilding one’s health. Functional Medicine treats the underlying cause of disease. It focuses on the patient instead of the disease, and is a personalized method of optimizing health based on one’s genetics, lab values, lifestyle, and more. There are no generic meal plans, because each person is unique. Based upon your needs and your goals, together we will craft a plan especially for you !
