What is Functional Nutrition? The functional approach to nutrition uncovers the root cause of imbalance that results in a myriad of symptoms and often chronic disease. Lauren’s belief in food as medicine helps guide her clients to create dietary and lifestyle changes that are unique to the client and aide in forming a state of optimal health. Lauren will start with an in-depth, comprehensive health screening to uncover the dietary, environmental or lifestyle factors that are contributing to your symptoms. This process will uncover foods that are contributing to inflammation or chronic symptoms that don’t seem to resolve. Functional nutrition counseling is a bridge that connects the client with the knowledge and skills to achieve desired health outcomes. Lauren is passionate about helping you rise out of chronic states of disease that keep you from fully enjoying life. She enjoys helping clients with digestive issues, detoxification, auto-immune conditions, nutritional imbalance and more. A comprehensive action plan is created for you to implement new habits. Supplement, herbal and lifestyle changes are also recommended. Lauren welcomes anyone who is ready to make lasting changes to prevent chronic disease and live a life of optimal health.
