Nutrition and Functional Medicine
FROM DR LuAnn Morrow:
I am pleased to offer my newest clinical addition: Functional Medicine. Over the last 2 years I have been quietly and diligently working with some of the best and brightest teachers and practitioners in Functional Medicine so that I can offer the community what so many of you have asked for: a system of medicine that considers the whole body and its function, in order to uncover the root cause of what is ailing you.
Through the Functional Medicine approach we can find answers to health questions such as, “Why am I so tired?” “Why can’t I concentrate well?” “Why do I wake up every night at 3am?” “Why can’t I lose this weight?” “Why am I so bloated?” “Why do I have such a foggy brain?” and “Why don’t I feel good?”
Together we will piece together your specific health puzzle and create a wellness protocol to move you into vibrant health.
Functional Medicine shifts the focus to the function and integration of people’s physiology in order to uncover the root cause of what is robbing their health. In functional medicine, we use comprehensive intake paperwork, extensive personal history, blood-work, hormone (saliva), digestive (stool) and other tests to gather objective evidence. Then we narrow conventional laboratory reference ranges and look for patterns, as many people will feel unwell before they test out of lab range normal, which means disease has already manifested.
Together we can create a unique personal plan, based on our findings. This includes a wellness protocol of diet and lifestyle changes and quality nutritional supplements that I have hand-picked specifically for my patient. Because often there is loss of proper function (fatigue, depression, sleep problems, weight gain, etc) before there is disease, I consider this method of analysis true “preventative medicine.” I am excited to offer more security in their present and long term health.
My studies are now focused on integrating the system of Functional Medicine with my 27 years of experience as a Chiropractor and nutritional counselor. I am proud to announce that I am certified for practice by the prestigious Functional Medicine University, the premier provider of programs dedicated to a degree in clinical nutrition.
