The success of functional medicine depends on how well a person can implement lifestyle changes.
It’s common knowledge that diet and lifestyle play a large role in our well-being. People seek and try a variety of therapeutic lifestyle interventions, but with so much information, how do they know what is right for them? After trying so many different methods and not experiencing positive gains, it’s easy for people to feel doubtful that they can make a difference in their healthcare outcomes.

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”
– Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

These lifestyle changes have enhanced the work I'm doing with my medical providers.
“Lara and I just did the PureGenomics webinar you helped us organize. We had 15 who registered, and 8 were present, and we have booked 4 of them for appointments in the hour since we completed it.”
