My Approach

Our health can be complex and often there are numerous factors that play into our overall wellbeing. Using both naturopathic and functional medicine, I seek to identify obstacles, clarify your goals and build a health plan that is personalized and proactive.

Here’s what building a health plan for YOU looks like:

1. Initial Assessment

We will spend 60 minutes reviewing your:

  • Story
  • Health concerns
  • Goals
  • Past medical history
  • Family history
  • Emotional, mental and social health
  • Obstacles to optimal health

We will discuss what integrative medicine looks like for you and the direction we want to take your treatment plan.

2. Advanced Testing

Laboratory testing is often a viable part of the diagnostic process and can determine the appropriate course of treatment. Using comprehensive and innovative testing allows us to fully investigate the cause of symptoms.  Here are some of the tests I use:

Hormones

  • DUTCH complete urine hormone test – Precision Analytical
  • LH, FSH, testosterone, estradiol and progesterone blood test – LifeLabs

Cardiovascular health

  • PULS Cardiac test – LifeLabs
  • Lipid assessment – LifeLabs
  • ECG – LifeLabs

Digestive

Energy

Metabolic

  • Metabolic profile – LifeLabs
  • PureGenomics

3. Personalized Care Plan

Taking into account your unique health concerns, history and laboratory testing, I will develop an individualized care plan that uses both modern and alternative medicine. Your care-plan will outline:

  • Goals
  • Treatment Stages
  • Benchmarks
  • Proactive long-term plan

4. Collaboration

I believe that it takes a team to provide you with the best care possible. I collaborate with, recommend, and refer to other healthcare practitioners to ensure all your health needs are met.
