A functional approach to medicine - helping you nourish your roots

Since I was a teenager and throughout my career, I have been exploring and learning about food as medicine as well as natural ways to supplement. It also has been a passion of mine to help others improve their health and well-being.

After over 15 years helping companies improve their financial health, I had an a-ha moment while attending a class at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Why not shift my focus from helping companies to helping people?

I have seen how the pressures of business and life can impact your health - both first-hand experience as well as seen in colleagues around me. Your body is not meant to be in a heightened sympathetic  "fight or flight" mode for extended periods of time. Stress is a big factor in how your body responds to and handles your internal and external ecosystem.

I found acupuncture medicine theory to be so inspirational and it seemed to make so much sense to me.

  • Helps the body to function optimally so that your body does not go into a diseased state

  • Focuses on the underlying causes of disease versus treating the symptom


This approach and philosophy really resonates with me.


I am really looking forward to helping you in your journey to improved health and wellness.
