Supporting with Nutrition and Lifestyle Modifications-
We use food, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle modifications to shift the terrain in the body, at the deepest level, towards health and to get the nutrients and precursors we need to nourish our organs, glands, enzymes, hormones, barriers, microbiome, neurotransmitters, immune system, and tissues so we can function our best. We use food, herbs, supplements and lifestyle to reduce inflammation, boost immune function, nourish adrenals, ease autoimmunity, improve digestion, balance hormones, increase energy, and build overall resilience. We provide the focus, attention, encouragement, partnership, and accountability that is lacking today in healthcare. We are on team YOU.
Empowering Through Education-
Teaching people the biochemistry and physiology of what is going on in their body empowers them, it helps them to connect the dots between choices and symptoms, and gives them the motivation to make changes. When we understand what is going on inside our body we can take an active role in healing. Very few things are good or bad inherently, instead if we understand the mechanism at which certain things affect us is depending on who we are and what our genetics and history is, then we can make better choices for ourself. I want to help empower YOU to take your health back.
Investigating with Curiosity-
Symptoms and diseases are messages that our body is dysfunctioning somewhere. The symptom is rarely the problem but instead a sign that something is off upstream. By looking closely at lifestyle, history, lab work, genetics, mindset, biochemistry, symptoms, diet, and more we look upstream for imbalances that are causing downstream symptoms. We are constantly asking “why” and searching for root causes of symptoms. We use labs, history, tracking, and symptoms to determine what shifts in lifestyle and nutrition and supplementation we need to get at the upstream cause. We use your body and your story as our guide.
Often we don’t realize our symptoms or diseases are messages that something is off upstream and needs tending to. General symptoms indicating an imbalance that needs to be addressed include headaches, fatigue, insomnia, brain fog, pms, weight gain, infertility, rashes, achey joints, attention problems, constipation, depression, memory problems, anxiety, irritability, trouble focusing, low sex drive, bloating, gas, water retention, menopause discomforts, and more. Most often those symptoms are not the problem, but instead an upstream imbalance that is causing those symptoms. How loud they have to knock before you listen is up to you.
Integrating Healthcare and Ancient Wisdom
I believe in utilizing the best of natural medicine, biochemistry, nutrition, herbs, labs, western medicine, functional medicine, mind/body therapy, spirituality, and ancient forms of healing to achieve our own personal best health. My journey in healthcare began in Yoga and Ayurveda, the ancient and powerful medical system from India, as a yoga teacher first and then an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist. My connection with the earth led me to herbs and the rhythms of nature. My admiration for women led me to birth work. My desire to understand more of the hard science led me to nutrition, functional medicine, and western natural medicine. The love of my life, my husband John, is an emergency physician and helps me understand how important western medicine is and how these modalities can and need to work synergistically to maximize health. I believe in community and partnerships and enjoy connecting with other physicians, healthcare practitioners, or anyone on your team. Let’s do this together!
