Why Functional Medicine?
Have you ever been in this situation? You are not feeling well so you decide it is time to visit your primary care physician. After spending 5-7 minutes with you, they order a variety of tests run and all your labs come back “normal”? This scenario is all too common and can be very frustrating. Our physician, Dr. Eric Djenge, spends time with you and digs deeper. With a functional medicine approach, he looks at the body as a whole. He spends time listening to your health history and examining genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can impact your long-term health and chronic disease.
Individualized Wellness Plan.
Once we have a thorough understanding of your health concerns and unique factors impacting your health, Dr. Djenge creates an individual wellness plan to support your body through the healing process. Our health coach, Ashley Parsons, INHC, is here to help you gradually introduce healthy eating habits, exercise, and stress management techniques. She hopes to reduce confusion around nutrition and increase confidence in your lifestyle choices.
Root Cause Approach.
By shifting from symptom management approach to root cause approach our team is able to reduce the burden on the body and allow for long-term healing to take place. Together, let’s create your path to healthier living!
