When I began my journey in Functional Medicine in 2012, I was trying to find some answers for my own health. I wanted to understand what was happening in my own body that suffered from fatigue, eczema, asthma and acne. I began exploring the root cause of illness and looking at the body more as a whole organism and not always dividing the body into individual organs.

I completed an extensive certification program through the Institute for Functional Medicine which relies on an integrative evidence based approach.

I weave together the pieces of a person’s story to get a more complete picture: genetic (family history and genetic data if availalbe), epigenetics (lifestyle, environment, diet, stress, sleep, relationships), and past illnesses/surgeries and current symptoms.

It is nice to be able to take extra time to dig deeper into a person’s story to decode complex symptoms with the purpose to compliment traditional medicine. Areas of interest include but not exclusive: general wellness, digestion issues, autoimmune disease, lyme disease, mold illness, hormone replacement, detoxification of heavy metals and toxins.

I’m excited to be doing Functional Medicine consultations through Minds In Motion on Mondays, Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday afternoons, and Thursdays starting August 21. Click here to schedule: https://mindsinmotionco.com/schedule-appointments-medical

Summer is finally here! It is short and sweet and there are a million things happening around us. How do we feel about the things happening around us? Fear of missing out, as I learned from my millenial friends, is referred to as FOMO. It is this frantic push to make sure we fit everything in and do as much as we can with the people around us and not miss a thing that is happening. FOMO is reserved for more social examples, but I'm interested in looking at our tendencies to not want to miss out on ANYTHING..... that outdoor activity, that gardening task, that concert, and the list continues. With such a short summer, what this creates is a sense of what we are doing isn't enough, or we don't have enough time. I'm home for two more weekends before school starts again, and I've caught myself in a funny FOMO paradox. I don't want to miss out on all the things we have booked for ourselves (camping and trips) and yet I don't want to miss out on being home for lazy summer days in Steamboat. I have found myself wanting both worlds and not wanting to miss out on either experience. The irony is I'm not missing out, but I have FOMO anyway, and I'm caught in a losing battle. Sound familiar?
