Functional Nutrition looks beyond alleviating immediate symptoms to identify the underlying causes of digestive issues.

If recommended, we can utilize specialized Gut Microbiome Testing (GI MAP) & food sensitivity testing to uncover any imbalances that may me contributing to your condition.

Follow-up consultations are typically scheduled based on your progress and individual needs.
