What is functional (Fx) nutrition?
"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, client-centered, science-based approach that empowers clients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It relies on a detailed understanding of each client's genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes." ~Institute for Functional Medicine website
I will work with you to address the root cause of your condition, rather than simply treating symptoms. One condition may have many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, my mode of treatment targets the specific manifestations of biochemical imbalance in each client on an individual level. I take a holistic whole-systems approach and apply genetic information to target nutritional plans for more precise results.
