Our 90-minute conversation lets us take a deep look into what’s going on with you, assessing your symptoms, health history, lab-work, your health goals and your frustrations in reaching those goals.
Using the functional-medicine model, we'll search for the clues and causes that help explain your symptoms, with the goal of restoring optimal physiological function . Functional medicine provides this crucial trail of breadcrumbs; for only by identifying the root causes of disease can we address them and follow the trail back to health.
My recommendations for you will cover diet, herbs, supplements, and lifestyle modifications along with any mindfulness or breathwork practices that seem relevant and are welcomed.
Follow-ups allow us to monitor your progress, tweak your program and continue to brainstorm solutions. It's good to remember that since you didn't get sick overnight, it's unlikely that you'll feel better overnight either (though small steps can sometimes yield huge gains).
Think of a huge ocean-liner making a 180-degree turn in the ocean....it is turning, but it's a process.....and turning around takes time.
Let me help you set small goals and accompany you through the maybe-fast, maybe-slow, but lovely turnings that your life will take once you focus on what you want and then clear a path to get there.

A plant-based, Mediterranean-type diet has been found to be as or more effective as medication to treat GERD.
