Get Your Health Back
Our Approach is Different
We understand how you may feel let down by the conventional healthcare system.
Pills are often prescribed for a wide range of conditions, such as insomnia, depression, constipation, and anxiety. Unfortunately, these medications can sometimes lead to new issues or unwanted side effects, like weight gain and decreased libido. It can be disheartening to experience these additional problems.
It’s essential to address the root cause of your symptoms to truly feel well, and that’s where a Functional Medicine approach comes in. We take a personalized approach to address the root cause of your symptoms and promote optimal health and well-being. It’s a better way to achieve lasting wellness.
We start by taking the time to learn about all the details of how you are feeling, instead of taking 5 minutes to focus on 1 symptom
Then with advanced lab tests, we identify obstacles standing in the way of your health, such as hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and inflammation. With this information, we create a personalized plan tailored specifically to your needs, helping to remove the things that are making you sick and replacing the things you need to get well.
As part of our commitment to your success, our team will be with you every step of the way, offering health coaching and guidance to help establish healthy lifestyle habits. And while our approach often means saying goodbye to prescription medicines, we may suggest bio-identical hormone replacement to help you feel like yourself again. We will also help you determine which supplements you really need and which ones you don’t!
Our goal is to help you get well so you can love the way you feel!

How it Works
We start with an in-depth consultation and questionnaire to evaluate your current condition. Based on your medical history and your goals, you’ll undergo a series of comprehensive tests to assess your hormonal balance, your nutritional status, your stress levels and your risk for chronic disease.
Based on your symptoms we may check:
- Sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone)
- Stress hormones (cortisol, DHEA)
- Thyroid hormones
- Metabolism (blood sugar metabolism and hunger regulation hormones)
- Kidney and liver function
- Complete blood count
- Vitamin D levels
We may also order the following advanced tests:
- Comprehensive digestive analysis
- Food sensitivity testing
- Exposure to heavy metals
- Evaluation of nutritional status
- Body composition analysis (body fat/muscle mass)
Markers that may predict future health risks. This may include tests such as:
- Genomic testing for inherited risk factors
- Inflammatory markers
- Advanced cardiovascular risk factors
- Estrogen metabolism for cancer risk
- Urine bone breakdown markers indicating osteoporosis risk
We’ll do a deep dive into your nutrition and create a customized dietary plan just for you. Not only will this help you reach your weight loss goals, but it will also target medical issues impacted by your diet and digestion. The food you eat and how your body processes it can affect everything from joint pain to mood swings to high blood pressure and more.
Once all of the analysis is complete, we will create a personalized wellness program to meet your goals and address any current health issues and symptoms you are experiencing. Our program is tailored to your specific needs and may include medical weight loss in addition to your specialized nutrition plan, hormone replacement therapy, stress management counseling, and a regimen of pharmaceutical grade vitamins and supplements. Then together, we’ll get to work.
Once we have put together your plan, we will stay in touch with you regularly, in-person and virtually via telehealth, to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your program so that you can see results more quickly.
We will repeat labs as need to evaluate your progress. By the end of the 6-month program, we will collaborate with you to decide on the best ongoing treatment plan to keep you on the path to a healthier, happier you.
