What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional nutrition is a practice designed to identify the underlying causes of your health challenges rather than suppressing symptoms. Symptoms are your body’s cry for help and we need to listen to them.
For example, if you’re bloating after eating then that is a sign that something is wrong in your body. We work to figure out WHY you are bloating and get the bloating to stop for good instead of temporarily suppressing the bloating with medications.
We don’t believe in what works for one person will work for another. Everything that we do is tailored specifically for you and your body’s needs.
We do diet and supplement analysis and recommendations as well as going beyond what’s on your plate to look for things like leaky gut, bacterial overgrowths, impaired digestion, hidden food sensitivities, vitamin, mineral and hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle patterns that may be unknowingly hindering your health.
Blood and Functional Testing
Blood and functional testing is available to get accurate information into what’s going on in the body. Tests available include full blood panels including CBC, Vitamin D, thyroid and lipid panels, MRT170 food sensitivity test, GI-MAP Stool Analysis, SIBO breath test and more. All testing comes with an in-depth analysis and customized protocol based on the findings.
