Functional Medicine - Getting To The Root Of It , For Good
This is the first step in learning how to ADDRESS THE CAUSE OF YOUR SYMPTOMS & CHRONIC CONSITIONS, ALLOWING YOU TO REBUILD YOUR HEALTH FROM THE INSIDE OUT, ONE STEP AT A TIME!
“Nutritional Counselors, as a tier of health care providers, could actually provide the infrastructure to people to make it easy to do the right thing” – Dr. Mehmet Oz
My Approach to Functional Medicine & Nutritional Counseling Offers You The Science-based Education, Hands-On Support & Compassionate Guidance That Is Required To Address The Underlying Causes of Your Symptoms
Due to the challenges of living in our modern world, many of us struggle to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We are constantly bombarded with contradictory information when it comes to health and nutrition. And when painful and often debilitating symptoms arrise, we are almost always directed to pharmaceutical drugs or even natural remedies to supress those symptoms, but don't address the underlying causes and can only, at best, offer temporary relief.
If you are curently struggling with any of these CHRONIC CONDITIONS, such as:
ACID REFLUX & GERD
IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME (IBS)
DEPRESSION AND/OR ANXIETY
FOOD & ENVIRONMENTAL ALLERGIES
ECZEMA & PSORIASIS
GOUT OR JOINT PAIN
POOR MEMORY AND CONCENTRATION
INABILITY TO FALL AND/OR STAY ASLEEP
Then you need to know that they ARE NOT JUST PART OF GETTING OLDER, THIS IS NOT PART OF THE NORMAL AGING PROCESS
THESE ARE ALL SIGNS THAT YOUR BODY IS OUT OF BALANCE, THAT IT IS BOTH DEFICIENT IN NECESSARY NUTRIENTS AND OVERWHELMED WITH SYNTHETIC TOXINS THAT IT CAN NO LONGER ELIMINATE.
Even with an earnest effort, and serious health issues that linger for years and don't ever seem to improve, many of us find ourselves at a loss to figure it all out, to know what to buy, what to cook, and what is actually going to make a difference in our health. We end up resorting back to old ways and unhealthy habits that make it impossible for long term health to become a reality.
So ask yourself these questions:
Are you interested in getting better - for good - but just don’t know where to start?
Do you wish you had more energy and vitality?
- Would like to have a knowledgeable, understanding guide in your corner who can help you finally reverse your chronic symptoms and create a sustainable healthier lifestyle for you and your family?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you have finally come to the right place.
With my Functional Medicine Nutritional Counseling Program, you will finally learn HOW foods affect your health, which ones to avoid completely, and which your body is desperately in need of. Instead of investing in diets and restrictive programs that are about controlling the QUANTITY of food that you eat, you will learn how to determine the QUALITY of foods that you buy and prepare, and how the RIGHT FOODS create the RIGHT BALANCE for long-term health and resiliance.
Through the many resources on this website, you will have the information and support you need to finally understand the cause of your chronic conditions, and what you need to do to reverse them. Take time to read how to naturally turn around diabetes, heart disease and obesity under "A Healthier Lifestyle", read my published articles on everything from the benefits of raspberries to the importance of sunlight. I am here to help you take your understanding of health and nutrition to higher level where long-term health and vitality is not just a dream, but a reality.
