Identify the Root Causes of Health and Wellness Issues with Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is a biology-based approach to wellness that focuses on identifying the root cause of an issue. When addressing a health concern such as hormone imbalance, thyroid dysfunction, gastrointestinal problems, anxiety, or sleep issues – finding the root cause is essential to healing. While a conventional medical approach masks issues by treating symptoms, functional medicine restores the body to optimal health through suitable natural remedies and lifestyle changes.
At Luminous Health and Yoga, we know your health history tells an important story. Rather than just addressing the symptoms, we look at how the entire system of your body works together. Using both functional and conventional lab testing to reveal imbalances and serve as a launching point for the healing process, we focus on optimal levels rather than just “normal” ranges. Once root issues are established, we work with you to discern what elements may be necessary to support your body in restoring itself.
Functional Medicine Treatments may include:
| Nutrient Repletion |
A natural pharmacy program that addresses medication-driven nutrient loss in the body. If a patient is or has been taking medications, it is wise to consider correcting nutrient loss with high quality supplementation.
| Professional Grade Supplementation |
All supplements are not made equal. Taking what your body needs in the form that your body can recognize and process is essential. Betsy uses her pharmaceutical background combined with over 18 years of experience in holistic practice and multiple post-graduate studies to utilize products safely and effectively.
| Authentic Yoga |
An authentic yoga practice is a holistic, universal approach to health and wellness for a client’s entire being. The physical benefits are only the beginning of what an authentic practice offers. Gaining an awareness of all aspects of our being opens up many opportunities for a deep sense of peace and full-body healing.
