AFMC Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner

Serving clients in Boston, MA and beyond

Your healthcare should be as unique as you are

Functional medicine practitioners treat underlying causes of disease, using individually-tailored therapies. 

Conventional medicine lives on the principle one size fits all. Whereas functional medicine looks at each person through the widely unique collection of factors. Because my life experience and system are not the same as yours.

As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in Boston, Massachusetts I’ve completed a rigorous training at The School of Applied Functional Medicine which is an Accredited Continuing Medical Education (CME) Provider.

WHAT IS AFMC CERTIFICATION (Advanced Training in Functional Medicine)?

Dedicated practitioners commit to 620+ hours of rigorous training in advanced functional medicine sciences and validated application through clinical case studies.

Through intensive study of chronic disease etiology, functional physiology, and evidence-based intervention, along with hands-on clinical practice, AFMC certified practitioners are uniquely qualified to provide individually targeted strategies that address the multifaceted nature of today’s complex health challenges.

The result: root-cause resolution to any imbalance, dysfunction and dis-ease dynamic in the body, empowered patients.

My Journey to becoming a

Functional Medicine Practitioner

In 2016 I developed debilitating health problems that back then seemed to appear from nowhere. What started out as hair loss, fatigue, trouble sleeping, then morphed into anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, hot flashes. And even memory loss.

I was desperate for answers and solutions. When I saw several physicians, this is the point when I was expecting to get guidance for recovering my health. Instead the only solution that I received was anti-depressants. For a person who has never taken any medications, it was not acceptable answer.

I felt defeated and frustrated. Intellectually with every cell in my body I knew that there must be logical, physiological reasons for my health problems. This is when I decided to take healing into my own hands. Which lead me to the path of intense learning of Functional Medicine science. After completing a rigorous 2 year advanced educational program, I have become a certified Functional Medicine practitioner.

It is my passion to help others and share a hope that it is possible to heal the body and feel healthy and vibrant again!

I utilize functional medicine science to optimize body’s function from the inside out while providing a personalized wellness approach. By addressing the root causes of a problem I help clients put their skin and health problems into remission without the use of drugs.
