Metabolic Health

Integrative and Functional Medicine Approach to Optimize Metabolic Health

Integrative Collaborative Care: When indicated, we will recommend evidence based natural therapeutics to help support Metabolic health from Naturopathy to Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Homeopathy. Furthermore, collaborative referrals to appropriate provider(s).

Functional Medicine is a new emerging field, that helps to address numerous imbalances within our physiological system, by using objective functional tests, detailed history, relevant diet analysis, lifestyle questionnaires and comprehensive physical exam.

Metabolic risk factors are a group of conditions that often occur together and are a major cause of heart and vascular disease. Over the past decade, researchers have discovered that controlling heart disease is not merely a matter of driving serum cholesterol down. We now know that 50% of people who have a heart attack have normal cholesterol levels. Why is this problematic? Because there are other risk factors and variables involved.

Common metabolic risk factors include:

  • Pre-diabetes, or insulin resistance and later diabetes
  • High cholesterol and/or high triglyceride levels
  • High blood pressure
  • Excess body weight and or obesity

Metabolic risk factors that are often overlooked but are addressed in our clinic:

  • Increased Inflammation
  • Unhealthy gut microbiome
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • High stress
  • Toxic load and burden
  • Genomic propensities
  • Poor lifestyle including limited physical activities

While each one of these factors increase your risk for heart disease, when combined together, the chance for early and severe cardiovascular disease (such as heart attack, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease) is greater.  Early assessement and treatment not only reduce your risk but also prevents the onset and progression of cardiovascular disease.

Personalized Metabolic Plan

Our personalized evidence based metabolic plan is designed for patients at risk of or already diagnosed with cardiovascular disease or metabolic conditions, which share many underlying causes, including but not limited to the following:

  • Increased inflammation
  • Poor gut health
  • High toxic load
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Insulin resistance
  • High stress.
