Disease begins in the gut. Or maybe a better way to put it – the gut is the gateway to health. Following in the functional medicine core beliefs, the body is connected and functions as a single system, not in pieces and parts. Whether you’re suffering from GI distress or anxiety or autoimmune disease, it all goes back to the gut and the inflammatory process created when the digestive system is compromised.
About 70% of the immune system is in the gut and about 90% of serotonin (your happy neurotransmitter) is produced by the gut.
My job is to help your body find that balance. Through testing, food modification, and lifestyle alterations, we can find your best place of health. Functional testing is key to understanding who you are at a deeper level and dealing with deficiencies or imbalances that are creating your frustrations. Functional testing can be performed through blood, saliva, fecal, breath, or urine tests. They are simple and take away much of the guesswork. This allows me to work with you as an individual instead of guessing what might be best for you. In time, this saves time, frustration, and money. We get to the root cause in a much more expedient manner which brings you closer to your best health.
