BS, MS, A-CFHC, NBC-HWC
After a long struggle with post-concussion syndrome, Julia discovered functional medicine and started her journey back to health. While the non-linear and open-ended recovery process was challenging in many ways, winding through autoimmune disease and environmental illness, each twist and turn created opportunities to experience the incredible impact that the ways we eat, live, and breathe have on our overall health.
Through simple (but not necessarily easy) changes like replacing inflammatory foods with more whole, nutrient dense options; living in a clean, healthy environment; and learning basic breathing, self-care, and stress-management skills, Julia saw how much power we each have to look, feel, and be better. Her experience ignited a passion that led her to become an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach and National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach to support and empower others on their wellness journeys.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. (Source: IFM)
Rather than just diagnosing and managing disease, functional medicine practitioners also focus on removing barriers to health, supporting balance in the body, and optimizing wellness. They’ve learned that finding and addressing the root cause(s) of dis-ease can be much more successful at restoring health than silencing those same symptoms with a pill.
