Of course, as a Functional Nutritionist, I can help you to ensure your dietary intake is not the culprit—and if it is, we can figure out how to resolve that.
Beyond the nutrition approach, I collaborate with a doctor of oriental medicine, Dr. Heidi Golding. She and I work closely on difficult cases to bring a fully integrative approach to your health.
While fatigue is common, you don’t have to suffer. We can get to the root cause of your fatigue and bring you lasting relief.
