Nutrition + Functional Nutrition
DO YOU HAVE:
Digestive irregularities or problems?
Fatigue, even when you should feel rested?
Get sick often or experience allergies?
Chronic pain or ongoing, unexplained health issues?
We can help with these problems and many more. Functional medicine is truly the future of conventional medicine, and it's available now. This system of healthcare identifies and addresses the root causes of disease and views the body as one wholly integrated system, not just a collection of independent organs to be treated separately. When the whole patient is treated instead of just the organ, often patients can find true healing.

Often, our patients are able to leave the first day with some knowledge about what's going on in their body and with simple steps to start healing. Then, once the results of your testing are in, we'll sit down and walk through the results together, with the doctor. A step-by-step healing plan is recommended- usually something that can be started that very day. As an additional bonus, all of our Functional Medicine patients have email access to address any follow-up questions or concerns as they arise during their healing process. We truly care about our patients and want to see you get well. Where else will you receive such personalized service?

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
Turns out, it’s true! This old saying holds a lot of truth; the nutrients we receive from food is vital to our overall health & wellbeing. If we give our bodies the raw building blocks necessary for healthy function, our body can then use these nutrients to keep us strong and active. While the need to “eat right” this isn’t breaking news for any of us, the application can be surprisingly confusing. (This diet, that diet... wheat, vegan...what's right?)
STARTING YOUR PERSONALIZED ANALYSIS
A customized process of analysis will get to the root cause of your specific problems. We start each patient out on a five-point analysis:
Can nutrition REALLY tackle the hard health problems? Heather saw results!
As a generality, our country tends to eat poor-quality foods that have been stripped of valuable nutrients. We do not consume enough fresh fruits and vegetables; to complicate things even further, research is showing that the fruits and vegetables grown in today’s depleted soils have just a fraction of needed vitamins and minerals. Many times, our protein sources have been raised in such deplorable conditions that it becomes a health hazard to consume them. Today we have to worry about what our food eats!
Additionally, we eat a tremendous amount of prepackaged, pre-made meals. Americans are simply overfed and undernourished. We have also been led to believe that fat is to be avoided at all costs—a hypothesis that came from ONE study and still is pervasive today! This has led to an epidemic of not only obesity because we replaced fat with carbohydrates and sugar, but also severe deficiencies in fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K. These vitamins are only absorbed if there is fat present. These vitamins are essential for immune and hormone function, especially vitamin D!
To further complicate our nutrition situation, alarmingly high numbers of adults and children are being diagnosed with crippling food allergies, autoimmune conditions and chronic lifestyle-related diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
There is good news: under the right conditions, your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. When your body is given the right nutrients, healing can finally be achieved. HealthWorks will help you to sort through the myths to find what will work for your body, your goals, and your lifestyle. Let us do the hard work to find a plan that will work to get you the results you've been looking for.
