The type of medicine that is practiced by most physicians is oriented towards acute care. Although the prescribed treatments, such as medication or surgery, can be life-saving at times, a more functional approach is required to address complex and chronic diseases, which are on the rise in our modern Western society.
If you are suffering from an ongoing health issue such as diabetes, heart disease, or an autoimmune disease, if your symptoms are vague, or if you are simply tired of not feeling your amazing self, then functional medicine is for you. Together, we will aim to understand the 'why' of your symptoms and work towards achieving a sense of wellness through nutrition, diet and lifestyle. We will do this in conjunction with laboratory testing, supplements, detoxification programs and other approaches that take into account your history, physiology and the impact of the environment on your health.
If you want to take charge of your health, we can work on a plan that is unique for you, to help you thrive and be the best version of yourself. I am dedicated to helping you improve your awareness of the biochemical, environmental and emotional aspects of your health to achieve balance and wellness.
