About

Many of us have struggled with conventional medicine.  It has failed to meet our needs to resolve chronic health conditions.  In recent decades, an entirely different model has emerged.  Functional Medicine seeks out the root causes of illness and chronic symptoms.  Treatments target imbalance in the immune system, the gut and detox pathways. This model of care addresses the whole person, to support the body’s innate healing capacity.  A whole-foods, nutrient-dense diet is one pillar of this approach.
