How is this possible? Our nation is getting sicker by the day and more in debt from health care costs that for the most part can be solved by creating healthier lives. No one has to die from heart disease unless they have a significant genetic variant. Let's take diabetes for instance...type 2 diabetes has a root cause in what we call modifiable lifestyle factors. Nutrition, exercise or movement, environmental factors, stress, sleep issues. These factors are extremely controllable, if you realize they are part of the root cause and choose to do something about them. If you are not sure how you came to be where you are let's dig in and figure it out. Research shows an increase in overall health as a result of working with a health coach. Illness does not have to be your future...lets work together to create your best life. A life free of inflammation, poor energy, sleeplessness, depression, weight gain or any other multitude of issues you might be experiencing.
The difference between traditional medicine and functional medicine is that traditional medicine treats the symptoms and doesn't look at the body as a whole. Functional medicine looks for root cause, treats the mind-body and spirit and your health as a whole person. This link will help you understand Functional Medicine and how it will save the future of our health as a nation and put us back at the top of the list. www.ifm.org
