Nutritional Approach and Philosophy

Paulette uses the Functional Medicine (FM) approach to help patients recover from illness or to reach a higher state of wellness. The goal of functional medicine is to understand the root of the symptoms or disease and offer recommendations to improve each individual’s health. The process of understanding comes through extensive information gathering, physical observation and nutritional testing. While it is true that genetic predisposition can play a major role in disease development, predisposition does not have to result in its manifestation. The sooner one starts making positive changes, the more likely a person will prevent persistent health problems. It is well-known that the development of disease is greatly influenced and perpetuated by our environment. Environment can be defined as anything that impacts our body’s chemistry such as emotions (i.e. excess anger, stress); diet that causes nutritional deficiencies or excesses, physical activity level, too much medication, caffeine or alcohol, and exposure to pesticides, pollutants, and toxins. Using the Functional medicine approach an individual can learn how to support their own body's needs by proper diet, supplements, herbal medicine, and detoxification. Creating a life that promotes emotional and spiritual balance is strongly encouraged.
