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.

Functional Nutrition Coaching
Functional Nutrition Coaching uses the tools of diet and lifestyle as a means for decreasing systemic inflammation to help alleviate chronic symptoms… so you can feel better! Functional Nutrition Coaching is an individualized approach to health. There is not a one size diet fits all! Health goals, genes, internal and external environments make functional nutrition coaching the perfect fit for designing a personalized plan for your optimum health. Appointments accommodate sessions to teach what Functional Nutrition is, answer any questions or give further diet and lifestyle assistance where needed. If interested in making more long-term sustainable changes, consider the Bootcamp Health Reset Program. The Bootcamp Health Reset Program is customizable to reset your health and meet your health needs. All facets of the program incorporate diet and lifestyle to decrease inflammation. However, this program can be customized to include a natural weight loss solution with real food, a medically assisted weight loss program and food sensitivity testing for a deeper dive into the root cause of your inflammation. Inflammation can cause numerous and seemingly unrelated symptoms in the body. Symptoms can range from digestive issues including constipation, diarrhea, heartburn to systemic issues including low energy, brain fog, aches & pains to metabolic issues including high cholesterol panel & high glucose panels.
The 10 week Bootcamp Health Reset Program helps people who want to help themselves feel better by naturally alleviating chronic symptoms, releasing inflammation AND resetting to a healthy diet and lifestyle for long term, sustainable results. It is a transformation, not only of your physical body, but of your thoughts, behaviors, habits and beliefs about your health and what is possible for you! If weight loss is also a goal of yours, many people are able to release 20-25 pounds while, at the same time, reshaping their physical, mental and spiritual body to feel better. The education and support from this program allow you to establish healthy diet and lifestyle patterns, as well as unlocking subconscious patterns and old habits that are blocking you from feeling your best self. These changes will profoundly impact your overall health and happiness as you establish the life that you want. The Bootcamp Health Reset Program corrects, not just the symptoms of inflammation with its numerous chronic symptoms, belly fat, weight gain and the difficulty of losing weight, but the overlooked causes that drive the body to become inflamed in the first place. The Bootcamp Health Reset Program paves the way for sustainable diet and lifestyle changes for optimum health and, if interested, permanent weight loss as well.
Whether you want to address optimizing your health, inflammation, weight loss or chronic symptoms, schedule today to see how Functional Nutrition Coaching can help you.
1. A diet of whole, real anti-inflammatory foods.
2. GI support to help to repair the intestinal lining and balance the microbiome. These are two big underlying causes of inflammation and resistant weight loss.
3. Metabolic support to help to balance the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal-Axis (HPA Axis). This cell signal pathway plays an essential role in regulating stress, blood sugar, hormones, metabolism and the nervous system – all essential for successful and sustainable weight loss and overall health.
4. Intermittent Fasting to decrease inflammation, while increasing both gut healing and weight loss. Fasting gives your digestive system, endocrine system and immune system a break, allowing it to heal. It also re-establishes and regulates healthy hunger signals and pattern.
5. Empowerment with comprehensive education and actionable steps about your Circles of Influence and how your daily choices of diet and lifestyle impact your overall health.
6. The ability to personalize your Bootcamp Health Reset experience by incorporating weight loss and food sensitivity testing.
Special note about food sensitivity testing:
Did you know that millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities, not just from “unhealthy” foods, but “healthy” foods as well? Conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, constipation, acid reflux, migraine and other headaches, obesity, resistant weight loss, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, skin eruptions, brain fog and many other uncomfortable chronic health symptoms are often directly related to specific immune reactions to the healthy foods you eat, therefore, causing inflammation in the body.
With food sensitivity testing, you can identify what are healing foods and what are inflammatory foods specifically for you! No guessing. No elimination diets. Knowledge at your fingertips through a simple blood test. Laser focus testing gives your Bootcamp experience the edge you need to give your immune system a break and allow deeper healing to occur so you can feel your best!
