Scientific Research proves that all of the systems in our bodies are interconnected, all parts of a whole, and if one part isn’t functioning properly, it can negatively affect other systems, and even the whole. These interactions occur between the neurological, immune and endocrine systems. Recurring conditions such as weight issues, mood disorders, digestive problems, irritability, fatigue, insomnia may be a result of disturbances in one or more of these three systems. It is this integrative approach to medicine that considers all of these parts and how they affect our overall health and wellness.

Functional nutrition utilizes supplements and herbs to target specific organ systems to bring them back into balance and improve whole body health.

One of the foundational contributing factors to our overall wellness is our nutrition. Functional nutrition focuses on how  our body function and health are affected at a cellular level, so improve cell function improves organ system function, and improves body health. Nutrition is so much more than taste and calories. One way to look at it is to see food as medicine and medicine as food.
One reason that our health may be compromised, and therefore organ dysfunction, is due to toxicity. Toxins enter our body through the air, water, and the food we eat which can be the cause of chronic illnesses and even cancer. Detoxing the body and/or the use of functional nutrition can restore healthy function to the body.
