What is Functional Nutrition?

Functional nutrition takes into account a person’s lifestyle, environment, cognitive influences, experiences, genetic predisposition, health history, symptoms and cutting edge diagnostic testing to determine an individualized approach to optimal health.  We, as practitioners, empower you with knowledge and evidence-based tools including dietary and behavior changes to support your challenges. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach and requires a mutual commitment. We are passionate about using food as medicine and are here to guide you each step of the way!
