Nutrition Counseling, a Functional Medicine Approach
The whole health perspective is gaining credibility due to misdiagnosing and over medicating the body. Functional Medicine’s approach is to not only cure the symptom, but the of those sycausemptoms. Dr. Valerie Skow and Dr. Juliet O’Donnell provide individualized recommendations for our patients, as part of their overall healthcare. Many patients find they are lacking guidance in reaching their goals. Some common concerns that are discovered during discussions with the doctors are:
|Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)||Diabetes|
|Chronic Fatigue||Joint Pain/Arthritis|
|Menopausal or PeriMenepausal symptoms||Depression|
HCWC offers an in-depth examination of your daily habits, health history, and short and long-term goals. This helps resolve these physiological anomaly(ies) with a specific regimen that is practical, achievable and affordable. These symptoms CAN be addressed, and do NOT have to be expectations of age or a stage in life!Medications may relieve symptoms, but often do not treat the source of the condition. Natural, or nutracuetical, treatments focus on the cause of symptoms or your condition and look to provide optimum support for an imbalance or stressed organ system. Often medications have harmful side effects or cause damage to other organs in small doses over time. Nutracuetical treatments provide the body with the building blocks necessary for your body to heal on its own. Nutracuetical treatments are specific to your body as an individual rather than treating a condition. After a thorough history, specific health goals are reached by using natural, clinical grade supplements at a dose and frequency targeted to get results.
