6 Ways Functional Medicine is Transforming Health Care

Tired of taking drugs that not only don’t help you, they make you feel even worse?


The standard model of care for conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, low thyroid, acid reflux, and autoimmune disease is inadequate. Conventional Medicine is failing us.


The good news? Functional medicine is transforming healthcare.


Here are 6 ways that, as a functional medicine practitioner, I am doing this:


1. I don’t settle for “mediocre” health standards We when look at health stats here in the U.S., it’s abundantly clear our population is getting sicker. I want to reverse the increase of

  • Heart disease

  • Metabolic disorders

  • Autoimmunity

  • Cognitive decline

  • Hormone imbalances

  • + so much more


2. I fill in the missing gaps

In functional medicine practitioners spend time creating customized wellness plans tailored to a client’s unique biochemistry. I not only spend adequate time (usually at least 60 mints) with each client to help them, but I teach my clients the information and skills they need to maintain their health.


I also understand that SO MANY things can influence the course of a disease and treatment including:

  • Environment

  • Health history

  • Genetics

  • Diet

  • Sleep

  • Movement


You won’t find standardized treatment plans here -- only plans customized to the individual!

3. I know medication deficiency isn’t the reason why people are getting sick Did you know that more than 100,000 people die each day because of the side effects from drugs?? 💊 Functional medicine is NOT anti-medication, however, for any person with any health issue, we look for the most effective option that causes the fewest side effects. 🙌 Sometimes that does mean medication, but whenever possible, it means supporting the body back to good function

so that it doesn’t need medication. 4. I realize genetics are not the problem Did you know that 90 percent of our longevity is determined by the choices we make – not by genetics? This truth has been established by the emerging field of epigenetics. Even if a person has a genetic predisposition for certain diseases it’s the interaction between our genes and:

  • The foods we eat

  • Stress levels

  • Sleep

  • Physical activity

  • Exposure to toxins

...that determines our health. 5. I believe the best medicine is at the end of our forks “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food.” - Hippocrates How far have we come that the words of the founder of modern medicine are considered to be threatening to modern medicine? Don’t believe me? Just take a look at commercials on t.v. and watch the nightly news.



6. Functional Medicine personalizes health care. Functional medicine practitioners treat each patient as an individual and design customized healing plans for each client. There’s no ‘one size fit them all’ treatment protocol - every case is different.


Imagine this:


You and your best friend suffer from the same problem: let’s say acne!

She went to the doctor and was prescribed loads of creams, face washes, tonics and even the pill - so you think: why go to the doctor myself, I’ll just ask her the name of the products and BAM! That’s solved, we will both have smooth healthy skin. 🙌


A few months later you realize that: the face wash makes your skin red, or that the face cream makes you itchy and the pill - well you don’t even want to talk about how bloated you feel.😡


Different people might have the same apparent problem and symptoms but they don’t necessarily need the same treatment.


Now what?


So if you want to:


  • Wake up energized every single morning

  • Have an abundance of energy throughout the day

  • A calm, centered mind that can handle any stress that comes your way

  • Move your body without aches and pains

  • Feel like you can connect deeply with your loved ones



Then the way I see it, you have 3 options to achieve that:


1. Spend hours and hours trying to figure it out yourself. Getting few results.


2. Do nothing and be in the exact same place 6 months from now. Still sick & frustrated.


3. Invest in someone who is a health expert with a proven track record in helping people just like you overcome their health issues to help them lead a vibrant life full of the above.


I say, you are worth the investment!
