What We Do
A Personalized Approach to Health and Wellbeing
At Optimal Health & Wellness, we emphasize addressing the root causes of disease through well researched and deliberate dietary and lifestyle modifications. Interventional tools such as an elimination diet, condition-specific dietary modifications, exercise quality and intensity, stress management strategies, detox support, and nutraceutical supplementation all play major roles in the overall healing process and we address these at every visit.
A Functional and Integrative Approach to Medicine
The current system of medicine in the Western world is not effective, and is driven by profit. We believe that there needs to be a shift to a functional and integrative approach to medicine, which focuses on preventative care and treating the root causes of disease. We emphasize a personalized approach to healthcare and aim to prevent chronic disease and promote overall health and well-being.
We Help Guide You on Your Journey Towards Optimal Health
We offer medical consultations using a Functional Medicine approach, including advanced testing and education on lifestyle modifications. These consultations can be provided in-office, at the patient’s home, or at a public venue, and can be provided to individuals, families, or groups.
