Functional Nutrition assessment and recommendations go the extra length. Not just addressing your emotions and behaviors around food that affects your moods and emotional eating struggles. They also help us understand how binge eating behavior plays a role in mood health, poor gut health, heart health, and liver health. Gut bacteria imbalances, hormone imbalances, chronic inflammation and digestion, absorption, activation and utilization of nutrients can all be the root causes of your struggles with mood, food, weight, and eating.
Functional nutrition testing and recommendations will support these body systems through food and nutrition supplements. You will learn how to use food and supplements to restore bodily functions, decrease cravings and stabilize weight and moods.
Any suspected disturbances in the thyroid, adrenal and sex hormones will be referred to your PCPs and/or Functional MD.
