Does this sound familiar?......

You walked out of the doctor’s office, prescription in hand, with more questions than answers.  There has to be more to feeling better than taking another pill.

 

You’re tired of being tired.  You’re sick of feeling old. You want to feel better.  You’re not ready to accept that getting older means feeling exhausted and sick all the time. 

 

You’re looking for answers. And you’re ready to step outside the box of conventional medicine and take your health into your own hands. You’ve got a life to live and so much to do.  You are ready to get your energy back!

Deciding to take charge of your own health is often the first step to finding the vitality you crave.

But where do you start?  There is so much information out there.  How do you know what will work for you? 

 

That’s where I come in.

 

My name is Leah Bookhamer and I am a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.  I use a functional approach to nutrition and lifestyle to find the WHY of your health concerns.

 

I help my clients not just feel better, but be better.

Why Choose Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine

 

Investigates

Addresses underlying cause. Thus leads to more profound and longer lasting results.

Holistic

Views the body as an interconnected whole, and recognizes the importance of these connections in health and disease.

Safe

Protocols have mild or no side effects, and other unrelated complaints often improve spontaneously.

Client-centered

Protocols are highly individualized based on client needs.

Participatory

Client is respected, empowered, educated and encouraged to play an active role in their healing process.

Interrogative

Emphasizes importance of diet and lifestyle and testing.

Restorative

Tests and protocols designed to promote optimal function, prevent and reverse disease, and improve quality of life.

Preventative

Guided by the Hippocrates, the father of medicine’s, saying to “let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”.

Evidence-based

Based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals, and uncorrupted by corporate and political interests.

Conventional Medicine

Superficial

Masks or suppresses symptoms, but does not address underlying cause, which creates “patients for life”.

Dualistic

Views the body as a collection of separate parts, each of which has its own doctor (i.e. cardiologist, podiatrist, etc.)

Side Effects

Treatments can have side effects and complications.

 

Disease-centered

Treats the disease, not the patient. Patients with the same disease get the same treatment, regardless of their differences.

Autocratic

Patient’s opinion is often discounted or ignored, little time is spent on education, and patient may be discouraged from playing active role.

Limited

Relies almost exclusively on drugs, in spite of their risks and complications.

Palliative

Tests and treatments designed to prevent death and manage serious disease, without dealing with the underlying cause.

Reactive

Focused on managing disease after it has already reached an irreversible state.

 

Profit-driven

Heavily influenced by profit-driven pharmaceutical and insurance companies.

Has This Happened to YOU?

When you see your doctor, you fill out a brief health history.  You have a few, precious, minutes to describe your symptoms before the doctor makes a diagnosis. Then you are rushed out the door.  The average appointment with a primary care doctor is 17.4 minutes.

 

At the end, you walk out with a diagnosis and a prescription that only addresses your symptoms. 

 

Most doctors won’t help you understand:

  • What your Lab Markers mean

  • Why you got sick in the first place

  • The potential side effects of the medications they are prescribing

  • How to correct the underlying problem that is causing your symptoms

When We Work Together,

YOU are My #1 Priority!

 

We take the time to dig deep.  I don’t just take a cursory glance at your symptoms and give you a pharmaceutical bandaid.  I am a wellness detective.  I look at your history, overall health, your symptoms, your concerns, and your lifestyle to get to the heart of the issue.

 

I get to know you. And then we work together to figure out why you don’t feel well.  We create a plan together to balance and detoxify your body so you can feel your best. I guide and support you all along your healing journey!

 

I  look at the big picture of your life and health by considering the following:

  • Your full health history

  • All your symptoms and health concerns (not just the obviously troublesome ones)

  • Which foods may be preventing you from feeling your best and what to eat instead

  • Simple lifestyle changes that make a big difference

  • How you can reduce your exposure to toxins and safely detox them from your body

 

We work as a team.  My job is to empower, educate, and encourage you to play an active roll in your healing journey.  My primary goal is to teach my clients to listen to their bodies so they are liberated into taking charge of their own health.

Knowledge is Power!

 

You will learn how to:

  • Listen to your body’s signals

  • Figure out your food sensitivities

  • Detox safely

  • Make lifestyle choices that support your health

  • Adjust your mindset so making healthy choices comes more easily 

Are you ready to take control of your health and feel alive?
