What is Functional Medicine and Why is it Important to Your Health?
Many health concerns and conditions are complex in symptomatology yet connected to one or more common root causes. Functional Medicine is an approach to patient care that focuses on biological systems and their complex interactions to address these root causes and their associated symptoms. Unlike conventional medicine that tends to just treat symptoms and body systems individually, Functional Medicine recognizes how symptoms and systems are interacting and interconnected. This approach allows for more personalized treatment options that look at the patient as a whole rather than individual parts.
Functional Medicine can be life changing for those who have complex conditions, multiple potential causes for a condition, or multiple conditions caused by one underlying factor. Because we believe that everything in the body is connected to everything else in the body, we treat the entire body as a connected system, unlike conventional medicine which focuses on individual systems.
Rather than simply writing prescriptions for each symptom, Functional Medicine prefers holistic, natural and nutritional treatments over medications when possible. Family history, lifestyle, diet, life stressors, and biochemical results are all considered to form a personalized treatment plan. Functional medicine always seeks to meet a person where they are to create a customized course of treatment that is both accessible and effective.
In addition, the treatment options offered by conventional medicine may not reverse the root cause or even completely remove the symptoms; Functional Medicine can often reverse the cause over time while also treating the symptoms.

Integrative Nutrition Coaching
Integrative nutrition is where nutrition, medicine, lifestyle, and wellness meet. It prioritizes eating nutrient dense whole foods and improving your relationship with food. While "on the plate" nutrition will be the primary focus of consultations, our PA will also encourage you to deeply examine how you show up for yourself every day. This integrative approach is vital because if you are undernourished "off the plate" then you likely won't reap the full benefits of a clean diet. Topics discussed may include phytonutrients, macronutrient distribution, gut/brain connection, gut microbiome, mindful eating, proper digestion, body shame, yo-yo dieting, body awareness, physical, emotional, and mental health, sleep, movement, spirituality, creativity, joy, relationships, home environment, and much, much more. We will help you create an individualized healthy, balanced lifestyle that will decrease your systemic inflammation, help you feel more comfortable around food, and help you break free from the restrict-binge-guilt-restrict cycle.
What We Will Cover:
• We will discuss your health history, eating habits, and diet history so we can appropriately meet you where you are
• We will discuss any concerning health symptoms you may have and discover whether an imbalanced gut or food sensitivities are a possible cause of your symptoms - We will create an open communication channel that is empowering and non-judgemental as you embark on this discovery journey
• We will work together to select an evidence based food plan based on your bio-individual needs
• We will discuss macronutrient distribution and serving sizes based on your bio-individual needs
• We will discuss phytonutrients and how to incorporate more into your diet (regardless of food plan)
• You will have access to online patient education tools that discuss your specific food plan
• We will explore limiting thoughts and beliefs around food and eating
• You will learn to listen to and honor your hunger and fullness cues
• You will build body awareness
• We will discuss the gut-brain connection and proper digestion
• We will challenge negative self-talk and prioritize self-compassion
• We will utilize the Circle of Life tool to ensure you are well nourished both on and off the plate
• We may discuss food sensitivity testing
• Much, much more!

Dermaplaning – Dermaplaning is a physical and mechanical exfoliation that immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the top layer of skin cells from the stratum corneum along with vellus hair (peach fuzz). It is highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars while leaving the skin smooth and vibrant.
Brightening Peel – The Brightening Peel is effective for anti-aging and overall brightening. It helps with even skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. It works towards hyper-pigmentation (sun damage) and melasma (hormone induced dark patches). This peel is NOT recommended for clients with sensitive skin. This peel is recommended for 6 treatments, weekly or bi-weekly then monthly maintenance to follow.
Mandelic Acid Peel – The Mandelic Peel is great for fine lines, melasma, sun damage, large pores, acne, and clients with Rosacea. This is GREAT for clients with sensitive skin. This peel is mild and penetrates more slowly which means less topical irritation, it also helps exfoliate and stimulate cell renewal. This peel is recommended for 6 treatments, weekly or bi-weekly then monthly maintenance to follow.
Jessner Lite Peel – A once a month lite peel designed to rejuvenate and improve the skin's overall appearance and health. This is ideal for first time peel clients. Mostly used for anti-aging and acne prone skin. Jessner removes multiple layers of the skin, evening out skin tone and improving texture.
Are you having a horrible allergy season? Recovering from the flu? Traveling soon? Had a rough night
in the town and feeling dehydrated? Having a migraine? Overall, would you like a little pick-me-up?
IV Hydration Infusions may be your answer!
IV Hydration provides your body with immediately bioavailable vitamins and minerals needed to boost your immune system and help promote better overall health and wellness. While taking oral supplements is very important, sometimes our digestive tract has trouble absorbing certain nutrients, especially if the gut microbiome is not healthy, you’ve had gastric bypass surgery, colon resections, or have some autoimmune disorders. IV Hydration bypasses the digestive tract and delivers vitamins directly to your vital tissues, ensuring you can use them up as intended! All infusions listed below can take from 30-60 minutes. Be sure to bring a comfy sweater, a book, or some headphones to watch your favorite show!

Well Woman Exams
Our PA-C Kacie can perform your routine well woman pelvic exam and PAP smear right here at IHS. Routine PAP smears are important as they screen for cervical cancer. Our cash pay rate is $125 for the entire 30 minute visit (not including the lab sample). This DOES NOT replace the need for your primary care provider or annual wellness exam and is not intended to be used for female gynecological problems (yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, etc.), but DOES provide an alternative service should you prefer your routine well woman exams be performed here at IHS. The lab samples themselves will be sent to LabCorp, which can be billed to insurance if desired.
