You’re not alone!
More people than ever before experience chronic and long-lasting illnesses. More than half (51.8%) of adults have been diagnosed with one chronic condition, and 27.2% of US adults with multiple chronic conditions.
The Bigger Problem?
Patients aren’t getting better because conventional diagnostic tools focus on symptoms without considering the underlying cause of the disease! Doctors & patients alike are feeling the need to make changes and move beyond the pharmaceutical approach.
Identify and remove the exposures, toxins, hidden infections, stressors or other triggers that negatively affect your body and health
Identify imbalances and replenish missing elements like macro- or micronutrients critical in the healing process
Balance your nervous system with lifestyle modification, stressors and self-care to increase resilience to stress
Once you remove the stressors, replenish the missing elements and restore your nervous system, your body regains the ability to heal itself
Instead of masking unwanted symptoms, I take the time to dive into what's happening in my patients' bodies and lives. Oftentimes this is through functional lab work, thorough intake questions & symptom-tracking. Once I have a good sense of what's going on, I'll work with them to develop a highly-personalized roadmap to get us from point A (where you are now) to point B (feeling so much better!). This roadmap to health involves supporting your body in many different ways.
Through my 17+ years of clinical experience in the healthcare field, both as an emergency physician and a family physician, I've come to recognize how much "care" & "healing" are lacking in the conventional healthcare space.
I realized that the conventional medicine model fails at managing and curing chronic conditions, including chronic fatigue, chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, IBS, anxiety, depression, ADHD, obesity, thyroid issues, and more. Conventional medicine assigns symptoms to the disease name; it then treats the symptoms but fails to address the underlying causes. Patients end up with little hope and are offered an endless road of pills and procedures. There is very little focus, if any, on the root causes of these now-too-common chronic health issues. I realized that by utilizing a Functional Medicine approach, I can determine the cause of my patient's symptoms, allowing me to prevent further suffering.
I'm passionate about delivering a better experience for my patients. My approach is personalized, patient-centred & collaborative, with an emphasis on long-term solutions.
