Your Guide on Your Journey to Restore Hope and Health

Individualized Functional Medicine Nutrition and Longevity Lifestyle Therapies in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”  Hippocrates

Food has the power to create illness and food has the power to halt or reverse chronic illness and restore vibrant health. Food is not my only therapeutic modality but it is largest and first, consistent with the Functional Medicine principle, “Food First”.

Conditions and Symptoms that Functional Medicine Therapies are powerfully helpful for:

  • Metabolic imbalances:  Type 2 diabetes, fatigue, polycystic ovary syndrome, high blood lipids, low HDL (good cholesterol), high blood pressure, insulin resistance, excess body fat

  • Immune imbalances:  Autoimmune diseases (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Rheumatoid arthritis, etc), allergies, multiple chemical sensitivities, adverse food reactions

  • Neurological imbalances:  Migraines and headaches, brain fog and difficulty focusing, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and fibromyalgia

  • Gastrointestinal imbalances:  Acid reflux, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis, eosinophilic esophagitis

  • General:  Idiopathy or “diseases of unknown origin”, those of you who have been told that there is nothing wrong with you or it’s all in your head.

And much more.
