What is Functional Nutrition?

Functional Nutrition helps the body to function at its best. It’s a modality that works not just to support, but to educate the patient on what’s going on in their body, what factors may have contributed to their current condition, and how to make uniquely targeted diet and lifestyle modifications that help them to meet their goals.
