Is the Functional Medicine Approach Right For You?

About Functional Medicine

Functional medicine differs from traditional medicine in that it does not focus on specific symptoms, disease or medical conditions, but instead on the underling root causes. Functional medicine sees the body as a set of interconnected systems that all work together.

Your Power to Heal

You already have the power to heal yourself.

Barbara will provide support by educating you, giving you choices, answering your questions, making recommendations and coaching you through the process of changing your health habits. The mind and body are made to self-diagnose and self-repair, and Barbara will help you activate those self-healing powers.

Personalized Wellness Plans

There is no such thing as “one size fits all”.  Because each client presents with a unique set of conditions, symptoms, situation, and bio-individuality, Barbara provides a personalized treatment plan that is developed in partnership with her clients.  She takes into account your lifestyle, your preferences, your inner wisdom and your capacity to make long-lasting change.
