What is integrative and functional nutrition?

Integrative and functional nutrition is not just about the foods you eat; it’s about understanding how your unique body uses food for healing, energy, and overall well-being. This approach combines the best of modern science with traditional wisdom to identify and address the root causes of health issues, rather than just treating symptoms.
When we look at your nutrition through an integrative and functional lens, we consider everything from your medical history, lifestyle, and food preferences to your genetic makeup and environmental exposures. This comprehensive view helps us understand how various factors influence your health and how we can tailor your diet to support your body’s natural healing processes.
