Functional Medcine Health Coaching


Food IS medicine.  You can manage many diseases just with lifestyle modifications and thoughtfulness with what you put in your body.  A healthy body retains proper function which often leads to less need for medications.  You can influence aging and even genetic expression by choosing the right foods.  Many diseases stem from a breakdown in your intestinal barrier which leads to inflammation in various areas of the body (autoimmune disorders, diabetes, heart disease, depression).  
Conditions treated with lifestyle modifications include but are not limited to type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, autoimmune disorders, GERD/reflux, depression, anxiety.  Imagine treating the root cause of your symptoms instead of throwing a medication in the mix as a band aid to temporarily relieve symptoms only to possibly make them worse with time.  
I strive to help each individual with their own unique plan.  The goal is to identify specific nutritional needs, restore function and and if we can work to cut down on the medications taken, it’s a win-win.
My goal is to listen YOUR personal story, identify your goals and your barriers to reaching your goals.  We will work through setting SMART goals to help you achieve your goals by utilizing your strengths and prior successes and set up a plan for accountability.  I will be there as your support throughout the entire coaching process. 

This service is ideal for patients with chronic conditions such as autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, reflux/GERD, IBS or SIBO.  Also applicable to individuals wanting to optimize their health, slow the aging process and optimize gene expression to reduce the development of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and autoimmune disease and learn about what foods affect their body and how they can best support their unique body system moving forward.   
The process will start with the completion of intake forms which will provide information on your health history and symptom burden.  In our initial meeting we will dive deeper into your medical and social history, your environment and discuss an appropriate approach to nutrition, intestinal barrier support, reducing toxins that may be contributing to your symptoms and supplementation (if desired) to help you achieve optimal health.  Every person has a different story, a different body and different goals.  We will work together to help you achieve your goals.  
Support between sessions is always offered - you’re always welcome to contact me with questions throughout the process.
