What is Integrative and Functional Nutrition?

A whole-foods, whole-person approach to nutrition and health.     
                                                                                                    Functional Medicine is the practice of client centered wellness, not disease centered care. It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine looks at a client’s history and the interactions between genetics, lifestyle, environmental factors that can all influence their long-term health and wellness. At its most simple definition, “It works on the roots, so the entire body can thrive.”
Wellness Coaches do not diagnose or prescribe, but rather help to educate, simplify, encourage and empower clients towards change.
