Functional Medicine is Nutritional Medicine!

Betty uses the Functional Medicine model with numerous nutritional assessments to determine optimal nutrition for you. Nutritional assessment testing is not meant to diagnose or treat any disease; the information provided is intended to assist you in making healthy eating and supplement choices to manipulate and optimize your biochemistry.

Functional Medicine based in Nutrition goes way beyond just eating plans and menus, we help you evaluate your metabolism, genetics propensity, biochemical pathways, nutrient levels and reserves with how well your digestion is working so you can take bio-individual actions to maximize your nutrition.

Functional Medicine Nutrition – The Basics!

The foods you eat provide fuel for your body. The nutrients you consume each day are your body’s source of raw materials. A shortage of any nutrient can shut down the “assembly lines” that are your body’s biochemical pathways.

Each person’s body has unique needs called bio-individuality. We customizes diet, vitamins, minerals and amino acids to fit your body’s unique metabolic needs. We optimizes wellness and helps prevent disease states from occurring and may reverse the cellular and metabolic aging process.

Test! Don’t Guess!

Health is a continuum. At one end is peak energy and vitality; at the other is disease, even death. Many of us live much of our lives somewhere between the two extremes: not quite ill, but not truly well either. Optimal nutrition can help us move positively toward peak health, with fewer illnesses and more vitality, even as we age. Nutritional and Functional Testing can help you do that.

Why Should I evaluate my Biochemical Activity?

Nutritional testing reveals your body’s unique needs by combining information from measurements of digestion, nutrients and vitamin and mineral deficiency as well as cell and organ dysfunction.

For instance, the Metabolic Blueprint evaluates your methylation pathway and your ability to burn fuel (foods) and create energy at the cellular level. To burn carbohydrates, fats and metabolize protein requires nutrients such as B-vitamins, CO Q10, lipoic acid, minerals and carnitine to name a few. All of these nutrients come from foods but may be in short supply based on your personal metabolic blueprint. Nutrient needs are highly individualized — just like you.

The Metabolic Blueprint can determine where you might be missing nutrients that affect your unique ability to burn fat or fight fatigue. The Metabolic Blueprint evaluates your amino acid profile. Amino acids are the “building blocks” of proteins that factor in chemical processes affecting physical, mental and emotional biochemical reactions such as improving serotonin levels and cellular energy.

Based on your Metabolic Blueprint lab test, you will receive a comprehensive report and program to optimize your dietary recommendations, nutrition, supplementation, lifestyle and diet to correct your metabolic issues resulting in optimal health. No more one size fits all diets and supplements. The Metabolic Blueprint is tailored specifically to your body and your metabolic needs.
