FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE LOOKS AT EACH PERSON AS A WHOLE SYSTEM.
It is a science based, personalized healthcare approach. Therefore it assesses and treats underlying causes of illness through individually-tailored therapies. It helps to restore health and improve body’s normal function.
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.
Dis-ease in the body precedes disease. Therefore it is the evidence of imbalance, blockage, and/ or impairment in natural functioning.
Do you feel exhausted? Do you have lack of energy? Are you overweight? Are you on medications with aggravating side effects? Do you suffer from acid reflux, bloating, gas, indigestion or any other digestive-gut problems? Do you suffer from hair loss and insomnia or hypertention? Do you have PCOS or any other hormone imbalances?
Are you frustrated to have acne, rosacea, eczema, dermatitis that you can’t get under control despite using topical medications or skincare products? Are you frustrated to battle melasma and hyper-pigmentation with the laser treatments and/or peels? And feel like it’s a revolving door.
Despite what you might hear in the media, it does not have to be that way!
Functional medicine addresses root causes of imbalances, dysfunctions and many disease dynamics in the body.
I work remotely all over the world helping people with autoimmune diseases, skin diseases (psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, vitiligo, acne, ichthyosis), gastrointestinal, SIBO, asthma/allergies, type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease, hormone, PCOS, thyroid, detoxification, hypertention, fertility issues.

You can heal your body. You can feel healthy and vibrant again!
And, YES you can feel vibrant, energetic and have glowing skin again without using any medications that have negative side effects. 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 health problems into remission without the use of drugs.
Our biochemistry (digestion, endocrine, immune, metabolism, nervous, detoxification) is interactive. All of these systems are interconnected with each other. Imbalance or dysfunction in one of those systems is affecting the rest of the systems thus an overall health and wellbeing. Functional medicine helps to bring the entire biochemistry into balance.
Therefore I view the body as an interconnected whole, and recognize the importance of these connections in health and disease.
Functional medicine takes a powerful look at the overall human body with the understanding that everything is interconnected.
A diagnosable disease does not appear out of the middle of nowhere, ever. There are always early signs and signals and symptoms of disease. So, it is critical to respond to those signs, the sooner the better. Read about my personal health challenges and how functional medicine has rescued my health here.
