What is Functional Nutrition?
Functional Nutrition is not a diet plan, rather it seeks to correct underlying deficiencies and imbalances in your metabolism based on lab results, not just guesswork.
Significant life stressors, illness, infections, and toxins can lead to oxidative stress in our cells, deplete our nutrients, and make it harder to detoxify and thrive.
Food sources of nutrients may be discussed, but in order to achieve therapeutic effects, supplements are often recommended.
A personalized Functional Nutrition plan can help with:
- Chronic pain
- Hormone imbalance
- Digestive problems
- Anxiety and depression
Comprehensive testing reveals your:
- Vitamin and mineral levels
- Amino acids and essential fatty acids
- Detoxification issues
- Oxidative stress and need for inflammation support
- Genetic predisposition to deficiencies
I often start with the comprehensive NutrEval blood and urine test by Genova Diagnostics to discover your nutrient needs and may recommend other tests depending on your history or other lab results.
