“As a functional medicine practitioner, I help my patients see the whole picture. Symptoms are simply symptoms – a symptom of a larger issue. Let’s take a step back to figure out where these symptoms are coming from and to address the body as a whole.
I teach each of my patients the physiology of what is going on in their system. Once they understand this to the degree that they can explain it to their friends and family members, this motivates them to work on things because now, it makes sense to them. They are able to connect the dots between what is happening between their system and their symptoms.” ~ Angela
