Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is a personalized, science-based approach to understanding, preventing, and treating the ROOT CAUSES of disease.

Functional Medicine is an evidence-based approach to healthcare that puts the patient, not the disease, front and center. You are seen as an integrated whole – mind, body, and spirit. FM doesn’t just ask “WHAT is the problem?” but asks “WHY has this unique person developed this problem?” and “HOW can this person be restored to optimal function with minimal intervention and with maximum benefit?/

IF YOU DON’T LOOK, HOW CAN YOU SEE?  The Functional Medicine approach uses targeted laboratory tests to look “upstream” at the complex web of physiological interactions occurring deep within your body in order to see what’s really causing your “downstream” symptoms. No band-aiding here. No one-size-fits-all prescribing of medications or therapeutic agents. You are unique – from your genes and hormones to your metabolism and lifestyle. Dr. Jamie partners with you in a therapeutic relationship, working to connect the dots of your symptoms and to see clearly the constellation of your health within the context of your life story.

Functional Medicine Consultation & Personalized Treatment Programs

The hallmark of the Functional Medicine approach is to understand the underlying causes of your symptoms. Dr. Jamie does this by taking the time to understand every aspect of your health story in a comprehensive health consultation. During your initial consultation Dr. Jamie spends an hour with you discussing your medical and family history and other key factors impacting your health such as your lifestyle, dietary habits, genetics, toxic exposures, emotions, stressors, and spiritual life. Dr. Jamie will then suggest the most relevant specialty lab tests to help find the root causes of your unique health issues.

Your second visit with Dr. Jamie will focus on understanding your lab results and discussing your restoration plan. Dr. Jamie will design for you a customized treatment program that includes one or more of the following: nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, bio-identical hormones, and stress management techniques. Follow up visits are typically once every 2 to 3 months to monitor your progress and to modify your program accordingly.

Chronic Stress Reset / Adrenal Fatigue Program

The science is absolutely clear: chronic stress damages your health and impairs your brain and your body. Whatever are the sources of your stress – mental/emotional, dietary, or inflammatory – the physiological result within your body is the same: HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) dysfunction. Your brain and body progressively fail to respond to stress appropriately (maladaptation), and you will feel it most commonly as:

  • fatigue
  • anxiety / depression
  • fat gain
  • hormonal imbalance
  • digestive issues
  • sleep issues, “wired but tired”

Dr. Jamie utilizes Functional Medicine Adrenal Stress Hormone tests to see just how much stress has affected you. She carefully interprets your lab findings, reviews your lab results with you, and designs a customized treatment program for you to reset your stress response, alleviate your symptoms, and restore you to optimal health.

*price does not include cost of lab testing and supplements.

Dr. Jamie is able to work with clients via video conferencing or over the phone because the health programs she designs are based on the results of lab tests that can easily be done in the comfort of your home. The types of tests that Dr. Jamie uses are stool, saliva, urine, or bloodspot samples. Not an ounce of connection, compassion, or detail is lost in the video or phone consultation – the only thing different is that you don’t have a commute!
