Functional Medicine



I was blessed to find Christine in March, after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in February. She gave me such hope of getting to the root cause of my inflammation, and I followed her course of diet and supplements carefully! With her knowledge of Functional Medicine, she was able to help me turn my inflammation around. Just a month after seeing her, I had my positive bloodwork rechecked.....and I was astounded with the news! My Sedrate had gone almost halfway down...from a 42 to a 25! My RFactor went from a 14 to a 9! All of my bloodwork is now negative! I am now eating clean, using supplements to help with inflammation, herbs to treat my gut(which I had NO IDEA had anything to do with my inflammation), reducing my stress, sleeping more, physical therapy, massage and gentle exercise for now. I have put down all my medications from the rheumatologist...and NEVER intend to return to them! Am I grateful to Christine? You bet I am! She is extremely knowledgeable, super sweet and kind, and continuing to support me on my new journey. I can't recommend her enough to everyone...you don't have to have RA to go see Christine if you just want to clean up your food, get healthy, and turn your eating around...to feel better and healthier, I would run, not walk to her office! I am telling everyone about her! Thank you, Christine! I am forever grateful! See you soon!!!
