What is integrative and functional nutrition?

Integrative and functional nutrition takes a comprehensive assessment of your dietary habits, lifestyle practices, and environmental influences to create a customized, comprehensive plan for optimal living.  This type of care is client-centered, relationship based, individualized, dynamic and unique to your individual needs.

This model of care is evidence based and uses specific functional labs to investigate areas of concern including thyroid status, immune function, vitamin and mineral adequacies, and gut function.  Dietary recommendations are made with realistic meal plans that address the uncovered deficiencies, support various organ functions, and seal and heal the gut.  Pharmaceutical grade supplements may be used to boost levels of especially low nutrients such as Vitamin D3 and Magnesium.

Who can benefit from integrative and functional nutrition?

Anyone wishing to investigate unresolved issues that a traditional approach has not been able to improve on may find that any one of the following conditions can be addressed with this approach:

o   GI disorders such as IBS, Crohns, and Ulcerative Colitis

o   Stubborn weight loss

o   Hormonal imbalances – such as over or underactive thyroid, low testosterone and estrogen imbalances

o   Low energy

o   Mood swings

o   Skin issues including: rosacea, psoriasis, acne, dry and cracked skin

o   Blood glucose dysregulation such as diabetes and hypoglycemia

o   Elevated cholesterol or triglycerides

o   Detoxification issues

o   Adrenal fatigue
