Functional Medicine at
Life in Balance Wellness

Do you have low energy, which makes it challenging to get through your workday without multiple cups of coffee? Have you repeatedly tried to lose weight, but can’t get the scale to budge? Or perhaps you suffer from digestive distress or experience anxiety, and haven’t found success with medication or other conventional treatment. We want to help you get better and thrive.

At Life in Balance Wellness, we focus on getting to the root cause of an issue. That’s one of the reasons why we chose to offer functional medicine. While medication has its place, it primarily serves as a bandage, only masking the issue. Our approach will identify the underlying cause and then provide an effective and natural solution.

What to Expect

You will be given some paperwork to complete. You can fill this out online beforehand or in the office.

Initial Consultation

You will meet with Dr. Chris for a consultation. He will ask you about your condition and your goals for care.

Saliva or Blood Testing and Analysis

These lab tests are highly effective in identifying specific problems. Dr. Chris will determine which ones you need depending on what you’re presenting with.

Treatment plan

As no two patients are alike, we provide personalized plans to get the best results possible. Your plan will include the following:

  • Customized dietary recommendations
  • Stress reduction techniques
  • Customized exercise program
  • Nutritional supplementation
  • Unlimited support
