Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Counseling

Functional Nutrition serves the needs of the individual. It recognizes each person’s unique capabilities for making the diet and lifestyle modifications that foster the physiological and psychological shifts that enable their body to cultivate its ultimate healing potential. Functional Nutrition does not exist in isolation of other health or medical support, but in tandem with it. That’s because Functional Nutrition recognizes the role of the patient in their own health care. The Functional Nutrition Counselor is the guide to help determine the best and most fitting modes of patient-centered self-care.

Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle looks at the bio-individuality of each person- zooming out to your lifestyle, habits, behaviors, mindset, and environment, then zooming in to look at the intricate functions and physiology of all the body systems. Assessment won’t be based only on symptoms, but on a complete history.

The Holistic or Functional Wellness approach recommends habits and lifestyle adjustments. As part of a therapeutic partnership, the practitioner tracks results with the client, making adjustments as needed.

Functional Wellness meets the person where they are and guides them to where they want to be in their health and wellness.
