From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

Chronic disease including diabetes, digestive, autoimmune, hormonal & thyroid disease are very responsive to a personalized Functional Medicine approach. People can often stop the progression of disease and in some cases even reverse disease.

We are proud to offer care to women who are currently going through breast cancer treatment by supporting them through the many difficult decisions they have to make regarding their cancer treatment. Treatment will address minimizing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and helping the body heal after these treatments and surgery. Once conventional cancer treatment has been completed, we work on a comprehensive plan to restore vitality and reduce the risk of a reoccurrence of cancer.
