Our Approach

Why We Use Functional Medicine

What is a functional medicine approach?

Functional and integrative medicine delves into the root causes of your symptoms and health conditions.

Rather than just treating each symptom separately, we aim to understand & address why these symptoms occur in the first place.

Our approach holistically considers all your organ systems, providing a comprehensive path to resolve the underlying causes rather than merely masking your symptoms.

Diving Deep

How do we find those root causes?

Comprehensive
Life History

The story of your life is one of the most powerful pieces of information. Often, symptoms are addressed in isolation, overlooking the interconnectedness of our body systems and past experiences. To uncover the root causes, we gather a detailed life history and dedicate a focused 90-minute initial appointment to dive into your lived experience & symptoms.

Laboratory
Testing

We use conventional & functional lab tests to analyze biomarkers related to your symptoms & potential root causes. We are very strict with what lab companies we trust. Functional lab testing is a confusing maze with lots of misleading overpriced tests. We only use the most reliable, research-backed tests with high quality evidence to get you trustworthy, cost-effective results aligned with your needs.

Dietary
Interventions

If a good test doesn't exist, the next step we take is to test how your symptoms respond to different dietary tweaks & changes. We use this valuable information to tailor our treatments specifically for you. That way you know exactly how your body is responding to the food you eat. And no, we do not support the use of long-term restrictive diets.

*Please keep in mind our laboratory testing is not meant to be diagnostic, all diagnoses must come from your medical doctor.

Our Philosophy
Our Philosophy​

Are you anti-medications?

Definitely not! The heart of integrative medicine is in the name, we integrate the best that exists in conventional medicine with the best in botanical & herbal medicine. That way you get the best of both worlds with the most effective and safe solutions. We are firm supporters of a woman’s autonomy & will support you in the decisions you make.

Safety & Efficacy
Safety & Efficacy

Are herbs safe?

Many don’t realize that herbs can often be safer than many pharmaceutical drugs we have. Unlike drugs that target specific areas rapidly, herbs are meant to encourage the body’s return to normal functioning, rather than a quick fix. We also take great care in ensuring that the herbs used in our treatment plans meet established criteria of efficacy and safety.
