Functional Medicine takes a holistic approach to nutrition and dietary changes. Instead of simply focusing on reducing caloric intake or avoiding certain foods, the goal is to understand your individual nutritional needs and address any imbalances or deficiencies. This approach considers your age, health status, lifestyle, cultural background, and personal preferences to determine the most appropriate dietary modifications. We recognize the importance of nutrient-dense, whole foods and may suggest dietary changes, such as increasing the consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, to improve overall health and support the body’s natural healing processes. We will also consider the role of food sensitivities and allergies in contributing to chronic illness and may recommend elimination diets or other interventions to identify and address these issues. In addition to making dietary changes, we may also recommend specific nutrient supplementation based on your unique needs and health status. The goal is to support the body’s natural healing processes, reduce inflammation, and promote optimal health and wellness.
