What is a Functional Medicine Health Coach?
Lisa provides support and guidance to clients seeking to improve overall health and wellbeing or to clients that are struggling with chronic symptoms or illness. She is your ally, helping you reach a state of optimal wellness faster and better than you can on your own. From helping you craft and stay on a well-designed plan to evaluating progress towards better health outcomes, Lisa will de-mystify the path to thriving. Working independently or with other practitioners involved in your care, she takes into account all aspects of your unique life: nutrition, exercise, nutrition, sleep, toxins, workplace/household stress, relationships, spirituality, and other factors which have significant impact on overall health outcomes.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is a model of healthcare that addresses the underlying causes of disease through an individualized approach. Functional Medicine practitioners consider the complex web of interactions in the patient's history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique gentic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning. Functional Medicine care is patient-centered and practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-tem health and chronic disease. Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st Century. Health is seen as a positive vitality, not just the absence of disease. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole-person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Lisa offers compassion, accountability, and individualized actionable steps so you can achieve the best possible outcome in the least amount of time.
