I am deeply passionate about the power of functional medicine. As a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, I use a rich breadth of functional medicine know-how, supporting my clients as unique individuals with fully customized programs.
Dr. Mark Hyman has defined functional medicine as “a science-based, personalized healthcare approach that assesses and treats underlying causes of illness through individually-tailored therapies to restore health and improve function.” The emphasis here is on “underlying causes” vs. simply treating symptoms. Eliminating disease processes in the body instead of simply managing them, using nutrition as a primary resource, and taking all components of lifestyle into account. Also honoring that everything in the body is interconnected and that all parts effect the whole and each other. For example, someone may have joint pain and the root cause may be food sensitivities. Or, someone may have brain fog and the root cause may be a hormonal imbalance.
Furthermore, functional medicine goes beyond rapid relief and focuses on restoration and maintenance of health for the long term.
Finally, my clients get so much more than just valuable information, they achieve transformation. It is all about behavioral change, the way they perceive nutrition and health will change radically. If they already prioritize health, I take them from good to great, if they don’t prioritize health yet I guide them to push it up on their scale of priorities.
As a guide and a mentor, I am fully present when I speak to clients. I practice mindfulness in every single session. The reason being, I truly value the relationship with my clients, I love them up and I help them face their truth, their essence.
If you would like to explore how Functional Medicine applied to Health Coaching can help you, feel free to set up an Initial Consultation with me (in person or remotely). During this session we will discuss your health and lifestyle to determine how I can best support you in achieving your goals.
I believe strongly that functional medicine is going to completely revolutionize healthcare in the next 20-30 years. It’s not a wish; the movement is already well underway. And I am delighted to be on the front part of that curve, benefiting everyone.
Taking care of our Health is not optional anymore. We have a great opportunity now to look after underlying disease dynamics in order to tackle whatever life throws at us.
I really look forward to hearing from you and helping you feel the best you have ever been!
Love yourself. Your body. Your mind. Your spirit. And surround yourself with those who love you.
