The Functional Medicine model is a patient-centered, individualized, science-based, systems approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical and lifestyle factors, and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
Solve the root issue, not the symptoms...
By addressing the root cause, rather than only symptoms, the focus of care orients to identifying the cause & complexity of disease.
Integrative therapies are offered or resourced for my clients, to support the journey and help sustain the results they have achieved!
I look forward to hearing from you!
Who Benefits from this Approach?
Do you struggle with stubborn weight gain, digestive issues or persistent allergies? Maybe you are struggling with multiple symptoms that are unexplained or have several autoimmune conditions and you don’t feel heard by other providers. Perhaps you feel decent but want to optimize your health, peak your performance, and prevent conditions in the future. For health promotion there are Integrative Therapies, and discounts on services, supplements and products from our Trusted Partners!
Most programs will provide notable results in six months. These initially involve a detailed history and initial consultation and a minimum of one follow up appointment to review lab results as required and followed by personalized recommendations.
Tele-health visits are available after the initial Consult.
No matter where you are in life, the functional medicine approach is for you!
Getting to the root cause of your symptoms with a thorough health history, listening to your story and ordering extensive labs.

"It has been over seven years with over a dozen other providers, before I got clarity about my diabetes and other health issues with solutions that actually make a difference! Your approach is exactly what I needed to turn my life around.
Thank you! ~ Edward H.
"This is the kind of partnership for our health that we have always wanted. I think you spent 2-3 hours with us every week at the start. No- one else has done that and we are so much better for it!" ~ Connie C.
"I've seen some other functional medicine doctors and chiropractors, but they didn't have the experience or take training through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM.) They also didn't teach me about my illnesses like you have. Now I understand more how it all works together." ~ Michael H.
"As a health care provider myself, the fact that you provide evidence-based treatments that are considered complimentary or integrative is invaluable. My calls or questions are answered quickly - often within an hour of my call. "
~ Evelyn R.
"I know the time you make for your clients makes all the difference. I can tell how much you care about my health. I'm sticking with you!
~ Debra G.
"Before coming to Cheryl, I went to another functional medicine provider for over two years. Her depth of training and personal approach, not to mention the results, have been completely different!
I've made amazing progress in less than three months, taking just one third the number of medications and supplements."
