Experience Wellness With Functional Medicine

Poor digestion and malabsorption can lead to immune dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, mental/emotional disorders, and autoimmune diseases. The 5R Phases of Gastrointestinal Restoration: Remove offending substances from the diet, while adding targeted nutritional support to help remove unwanted compounds from the body. Specific herbs can provide nutritional support to help promote a healthy

There are 10 times more cells from microorganisms like bacteria and fungi in and on our bodies than there are human cells.Scientists increasingly think that these microorganisms have a huge influence on our health.
