Functional Nutrition is about nourishing all of your body’s systems to work optimally together for vibrant health.
For example, instead of looking at the digestive, immune and nervous systems as separate entities, we look at their combined, synergistic effects. If you can digest your food well, you’ll avoid food allergies and sensitivities, absorb more nutrients so you can stay strong and healthy, and make calming neurotransmitters in your gut, the “second brain” that profoundly affects your mood, thoughts and decisions about ongoing food choices! Every choice we make has a cascading, ripple effect.
Functional foods with abundant nutrients and optimal hydration help you avoid or heal the underlying causes of acute illness and chronic, degenerative disease. We can do our best to offset genetics, environmental influences and the stress of modern life by taking a holistic, integrative approach to natural health.
A functional nutrition approach is right for you if:
- You have different symptoms that need to be looked at together, to see how they are related.
- You have been to various doctors or specialists, conventional or alternative, but do not feel well yet. Worst of all, you may have been told that your problems are “in your head.”
- You have worked with health coach, but need a practitioner with advanced clinical knowledge who can help you navigate a science-based course of action.
- You believe that food is the best medicine!
