Food as Medicine

Foods provide more than just fuel. They have additional health benefits and support specific functions in the body. Dependant on your personal circumstances, specific foods can be incorporated into your diet to address imbalances and restore your biochemistry to help you thrive. Phytonutrients are especially important in this regard and the way they interact with our biochemistry makes food so much more than just proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Root Causes

Symptoms are clues from the body that something is out of balance. A functional medicine approach looks deeper to identify biochemical imbalances underlying the symptoms and diseases a person experiences. Considering all the information from your case history to include genetics, epigenetics, trauma, stressful life events, environmental factors, diet, lifestyle and symptoms, it is possible to connect to the root causes and address health at its core.

Re-tune your health

Our body is made up of many interconnected systems: immune system, neurological system, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, digestive system, musculo-skeletal system. Re-tuning all our systems allows us to bring harmony to our overall health and wellbeing. No system exists in isolation and to achieve optimal health we need to be in tune with our body at each and every level.

Beyond Nutrition

We are so much more than just a physical body. To achieve optimal wellness we need to also look at body, mind and spirit nutrition – the energetic body, the emotional body, the mental body and the spiritual body. Each layer of our being affects the others and the downstream affects of negative thought patterns, unresolved emotional trauma and a lack of connection with our purpose, our family and the natural world around us can eventually manifest as physical symptoms.
