. Many of us have health issues that have not properly been addressed. Everyone also has a different idea of how they want their health to look Whether that is learning to eat healthier, decreasing inflammation, lose weight, have a certain physique, live pain-free, build cardiovascular endurance, increase energy, think clearly, feel happiness, ultimately, it is all about enhancing who you are and understand what is happening with your body at a cellular level. It starts with making goals and committing to them. That is the tricky part. It is easier to write a goal down than to actually complete it! Sometimes we need that extra guidance to help us get to the starting line. Sometimes, even prioritizing goals can feel overwhelming and hard to know where to start.
Speaking from experience, I know it is a struggle to accomplish health goals. Especially when I had so many unanswered questions from medical doctors. At times, I felt I was so far away from the right path that I felt hopeless. But after many struggles, and many roadblocks I crossed the (first) finish line. I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy, but it is so fulfilling to succeed in attaining goal. I wanted to help others feel this same feeling of accomplishment and new sense of health. I also wanted them to have the guidance and support that I lacked on my journey. Functional Wellness is for those who want to enhance their health but feel stagnant. We want to make the journey a positive learning process and not just a race to the destination.

- Overall wellness
- Chronic pain
- Attention problems

Because we look at the big picture we require all initial paperwork, previous labs, medical records and imaging (if any) to be submitted prior to the appointment. This gives us time to thoroughly investigate and review your history as well as come up with a tentative hypothesis/plan. Further testing will be done during your initial visit. These tests can include medical imaging and further lab testing. Please feel free to email the office if you have questions.
NOTE: Paperwork must be received three days prior to your appointment. It is important we have time to collaborate and make a plan. We sometimes spend a few hours reviewing cases before a patient comes in. If the paperwork is not received, your appointment will likely be rescheduled.
