“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." ~ Thomas Edison
What is Functional Nutrition and Why Should I Try It?
Functional Nutrition works to eliminate the multitude of underlying causes of disease instead of treating the disease itself.
Functional Nutrition focuses on diet and lifestyle as prescriptions instead of medications.
When practicing functional nutrition the first premise is to test, not guess. Instead of focusing on symptoms or complaints given from the client/patient, functional nutrition calls for us to actually test the internal processes of the body. By doing so, we can identify dysfunction and attend to healing opportunities in the body. I've seen over and over again how people, even other health and fitness professionals, will hear a symptom and say, “Hey, you should try this! That worked for me”. Not that whatever their suggestion may not work, but there are many instances where that suggestion could make the person worse. This is why we value the the detective work in functional nutrition. You can't truly give someone the best care unless you know internally how their organ systems are functioning. This is why working with a nutrition coach can help you immensely with health issues and overall wellness.
Our holistic program addresses not just diet, but recovery techniques, supplementation, exercise prescription, and stress reduction techniques as well.
Functional lab testing is the key to unlocking answers to our most common health issues.
