Functional nutrition is an approach to dietary and nutritional planning that focuses on supporting and optimizing the body's physiological functions. It goes beyond traditional nutrition by considering individualized needs, biochemical imbalances, and the impact of food on various bodily systems.
Functional nutrition practitioners assess an individual's unique health history, genetics, lifestyle, and environment to create personalized dietary plans. The goal is to address underlying root causes of health issues rather than just treating symptoms. This approach often involves using whole, nutrient-dense foods, as well as specific supplements if necessary, to promote wellness, prevent disease, and support the body's natural healing processes.
Functional nutrition takes into account factors such as gut health, hormonal balance, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies. It emphasizes the importance of a holistic view of health and recognizes the interconnectedness of various bodily systems. This approach is often utilized in integrative and holistic healthcare settings to complement traditional medical treatments and promote overall well-being.

The first step of the program includes an intake of every factor of your life, beginning with your health records, diet, lifestyle, existing blood work and medical tests, and a drug and supplement assessment, and ends with a comprehensive symptom analysis.
Hello, hardworking and busy woman.
You've taken care of everyone else's needs and forgot to take care of your needs.
You've gone to the doctor only to hear "everything looks normal" "that's part of aging" "you're a mom, those things are expected."
But lately you’re feeling like…
You don't have the energy you used to. You're "wired but tired" at night, you wake up in the middle of the night and start thinking of all the to-do lists, only to wake up exhausted.
Diets that have worked in the past no longer work and your weight keeps increasing.
Social gatherings that once left you energized are now making you feel anxious.
You're impatient, have low mood or lack of motivation.
