The functional medicine approach focuses on getting to the root cause of the problem. By definition, if you try to cut a weed at the surface, it will most likely grow back. However, if you pull the weed out from the root, you will most likely fix the problem and the weed will not grow back. This is the exact approach that we focus on using functional medicine. Instead of trying to cover up the issue by adding another medication, we will find out what is causing the problem and develop a customized plan to optimal wellness.

Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivity tests measure how your immune system reacts to different types of food. This kind of testing can help you uncover which foods are triggering many different kinds of unpleasant adverse reactions such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, headaches, acid reflux, inflammation, pain, fatigue, joint pain, and many more.
Hormone Testing and Balancing
There are many different signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance, so the best place to start is to check your hormone levels. Hormones work together in a symphony, and if something is off, it can throw others off as well. One of the first steps to optimal health is restoring balance in your body with your hormones.
Drug Induced Nutrient Depletion Consulting
Prescription medications have the tendency to deplete the body’s nutrients in one way or another. Taking a look at each medication and which nutrients it depletes is key to helping the patient feel better and function at a higher level. As a pharmacist, this is one of Dr. Jennie’s areas of expertise.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis measures the mineral content of the hair which can indicate both the mineral status of the patient as well as toxic metal accumulation. This kind of test measures important levels including zinc, magnesium, potassium, and sodium as well as heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, lead and arsenic.
Taking a deep dive into each patient leads to a specific and customized plan that includes necessary vitamins and supplements that will help restore balance and optimal health. In utilizing a detailed health history and targeted lab testing, each patient will get a roadmap to healing that includes supplement recommendations.
Based on the patient’s health goals and lab testing, each patient will receive a customized nutrition plan. Nutrition can be confusing with all of the different “diets” out there, but together we will break it down to make it manageable and realistic for each patient.
Losing weight can be difficult and confusing until you start to uncover the root cause that may be inhibiting a patient’s weight loss. Utilizing targeted lab testing can help create a plan that will work for each patient.
Through years of experience, Dr. Jennie has discovered the CBD brands that are the best in the industry and are reliable for the patient. CBD can be helpful for a wide variety of problems including pain, anxiety, depression, problems sleeping, arthritis, parkinson’s, nausea and vomiting, and acne, among others.
Using brands that are certified to be pure, therapeutic grade, essential oils can be used for many reasons including relaxation, pain, anxiety, nausea, headaches, muscle aches, insomnia or stress among other things.
