What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional nutrition is a specialized approach to addressing the root cause of dysfunction on a case-by-case basis. It utilizes an in-depth review of what we eat, how we sleep, move, think, and find connection to understand the interwoven nature these components add into the bigger picture of health. By addressing all of these lifestyle factors in concert, it becomes possible to see improvements in energy levels, mood, performance and overall zest for life!
