“Let your food be your medicine,
and your medicine be your food.”
Functional Medicine is a science-based field of health care that deals with prevention of illness and underlying causes, instead of just treating symptoms. Functional Medicine uses nutrition – emphasizing food as medicine. We customize your nutrition and supplement plan to work with various dietary practices, such as kosher, raw food, vegan and vegetarians. In addition to nutrition, Functional Medicine also incorporates supplements, detoxification programs, exercise programs and stress-management techniques.
Functional Medicine helps in preventing disease by restoring the body’s function and is effective with many conditions, including adrenal stress, fatigue, digestive dysfunction, thyroid imbalances, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, attention disorders, autoimmune disorders, women’s health and hormone imbalances.
We also recognize that our relationship with food has can be impacted by how we are managing stress and expressing our emotions. Some people turn to food for immediate gratification and comfort, which so often points to a deeper imbalance that is taking place in the mind. Our goal is to help you work on every level so you can make lasting changes.
