Everyone is genetically unique and thus has unique nutritional requirements. For the body to function optimally, it requires a specific optimal nutrient intake. From a Functional Medicine - Alternative Services perspective, many symptoms that people experience, symptoms often attributed to disease, are due to poor biochemical function. This poor biochemical function is usually the result of a combination of genetic constitution, toxin exposure, and poor nutrition. By removing toxins and optimizing nutrient intake, patients can function at their best, resulting in the alleviation of symptoms and better well-being. Simply put...if your body is functioning well, you will feel well. At Center for Holistic Care, PLLC, our Alternative Services and Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the biochemically-unique aspects of each patient and then individually tailoring a program that achieves balance and total wellness. As a Board Certified Chiropractic Internist, Dr. Sandrine Martin, DC, DABCI is able to offer a comprehensive wellness plan that specifically suits your individual condition, needs, and lifestyle. Think of it like this: Within everyone there is a web-like interconnection among the body's physiological processes. This web directly affects how well you are able to function in everyday life. Most imbalances can be addressed in order to restore you to optimum function and others can be substantially improved. Virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by a gradual breakdown somewhere in the body, an imbalance that needs to be identified and effectively managed – the earlier the better.
