You know that worrisome health problem that just won’t go away?
Why not find and fix it at the root? Quite possibly for good.
If you want to regain lost energy and vitality, to lose weight and keep it off, stop joint pain, gain strength and flexibility at any age, to look and feel your best, I can help.
As a full-time Functional Health Practitioner, my job is to help you take back your perfect health. Millions have done it. I did it. Now, you can, too!
What is a “Functional Health Practitioner”?
The practice of Functional Medicine is focused on finding the root cause of your health concerns, then working with you to repair those malfunctions using only natural methods.
That means no drugs, no surgery, no invasive medical procedures. And no guessing!
To uncover the root cause of your health concerns, we start with a free 30 minute consultation. You’ll describe your health challenges, then we can talk about your options for resolving them.
We may (MAY) take advantage of lab tests: hair, spit, urine, blood, and/or stool. The results along with your detailed health history and description of symptoms, will guide your healing, putting you squarely on the path to vibrant health.
Just to be clear, I am not a doctor. I don’t diagnose or treat a specific illness. I don’t prescribe drugs. Nor do I work to suppress symptoms and call it a day.
You and I will note your symptoms, then take effective steps to relieve them asap. Feeling poorly is no way to live. But we don’t stop there. Symptoms are only part of the big picture.
Because Feeling well is not Being well.
Conventional medicine almost always stops at symptom suppression: get rid of the symptom, feel better, the disease must be gone, right?
^ ^ ^ That assumption could not be more inaccurate. Or more dangerous!
While we are happy to be feeling better, if the root cause is not thoroughly addressed, what’s still happening in your body?
Exactly. The gremlins are still about their dirty work and, sooner or later, symptoms will re-appear. Worse, they often surface as a different, more complicated ailment altogether!
We all know someone who felt good right up to being diagnosed with stage # cancer? Or “suddenly” hit with an auto-immune disease: joint pain, arthritis, fatigue? Who starts losing eyesight or hearing “out of the blue”? Cannot get relief from persistent and painful UTIs that started up with no warning? Can’t remember someone’s name or gets confused navigating familiar territory? Begins having GERD, bloating, gas after eating with no prior digestion issues? Suddenly has allergies to foods and/or animals?
It’s a big list and here’s why:
We don’t “catch” fatigue or cancer or UTIs. The conditions in our bodies that promote disease have been there for awhile. If you are not feeling your best, whatever is causing that current discomfort did not begin when you started feeling unwell! It’s been developing for awhile, sometimes weeks, months, and often years.
Here’s the miracle of functional medicine:
You can get well again.
With a little patience and time — yes, you have time — you can return to vibrant health. It requires only commitment to the process. If you have that, you are halfway there and I’m not kidding. EVERYBODY wants perfect health. Many are not willing to go the distance.
In fact, most have felt unwell for so long, it feels normal! Normal does not equal healthy. Look around you. Most of those unhealthy-looking people feel normal. I sure did. But I was far far from a well woman!
That was then — I am healthy now and I’ve got the lab tests and vitality to prove it! Now it’s your turn.
Are you ready to be well?
You are reading this with at least one specific health complaint in mind, looking for relief. I can help you get relief as well as actual recovery!
We start with that free 30-minute chat (click below to schedule). You’ll describe your health situation and what you’d like to accomplish; I’ll describe how I work and what you can expect. We’ll go over your options for getting well and how you’d like to proceed.
Here’s how I charge:
$50/session, sessions are 60 min. max (we often don’t need that long after the first few sessions) and sessions are recorded. You get the audio recording right after the call so you don’t have to take copious notes (unless you want to).
We’ll use Zoom and can talk via video or phone, whichever suits you.
To get set up, go to zoom.us, open a free account, download the app to your phone or device. If you prefer to use your computer, just go to the site at our appointment time. On the site or in the app, you click “join a meeting” and enter the Meeting ID# that I’ll have sent you via text. We can talk via video call or phone, whichever works for you.
