How would you feel if you no longer suffered from headaches, fatigue, bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, constipation, aches, pains & any number of other complaints?
Functional Medicine is a science based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of health complaints and disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
By addressing root causes, rather than just symptoms, you become oriented and knowledgable to identifying the complexity of disease. With these facts at hand you may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions.
Every aspect of our lives determines who we are and how we think and feel day after day. Every single one of us is unique for this exact reason.
Or to put it another way, each person is unique, having lived uniquely different life experiences.
Because of this, my approach is to work in a completely personalised way! What makes one person sick, is not the same for someone else.
My program brings your body back to its optimal health. We work as a team to achieve your individual goals and health needs; and most important: you learn how to sustainably maintain that, day after day!
Food is information to your body. You can feed your body health or you can feed your body disease!
Your personal program comprises of:
• Two 60 minute online consulting sessions per month
• Follow-up session summaries via email

• The foods and nutrients your body needs and craves
• Clarity of thinking
• Restful sleep
• Clearer skin, healthy hair and harder nails
• A more connected YOU
Your Health Journey Program
The first session takes 60 to 90 minutes. During this time we discuss your health history form, your symptoms, supplements, lab work (if you have any) and we will start looking for the root causes of why your body is presenting the specific kind of dis-ease you have.
- We start investigating what are the interconnected points that are leading to your complaints.
- I give you insights and try various options for rapid relief while digging further into your condition for the following sessions to come.
- We meet every 2 weeks, during 3 months. Each session brings us closer to finding the real root cause of your dis-ease.
I highly recommend that you get a full blood work lab done in order to address deficiencies that you might have, to look for interconnected factors. This also allows for a proper recommendation on targeted nutrition and potential supplements needed for your unique way back to good health.
NOTE: Other exams might be needed, such as stool and urine samples to access the health of your gut or metabolites.
After each session you receive an email containing all the main points discussed in that session, the supplement(s) recommended, nutritional recipes and any important reminders for you to follow up on during the following weeks.
60 mins each
In order to see and achieve the best results, longevity and consistency are essential.
I always say this up front because from previous experience, the most successful results come from individuals who have followed a nutritional & functional medicine program of between 3 to 6 months.
