Initially trained as an acupuncturist and herbalist, I recently became a Functional Medicine convert because I see it as the smartest, most scientifically valid and effective approach (often in combination with other modalities) to relieving and in many cases resolving chronic illness.
Functional medicine is detective medicine. For this reason I find it useful to begin with a baseline analysis of GI, nutritional and/or hormone health, based on presenting symptoms and health history.
Feel free to message me. Sample reports are available upon request. It’s all quite fascinating.
