Applications Of Functional Medicine

The Functional Medicine offerings at Alive and Well in Boulder, CO, have demonstrated significant success across a range of health challenges.

Our strategy is to uncover the fundamental causes of these allergic responses, which frequently include diet, environmental elements, and immune system imbalances. Through customized dietary adjustments, treatment plan, and specific nutritional supplements, our healthcare professionals have enabled clients to greatly diminish or entirely rid themselves of allergic symptoms.

Brain and Mood Health

For those battling mood fluctuations, anxiety, brain fog, depression, or other mental health issues, we investigate gut health, nutrient deficiencies, and hormonal imbalances.

These measures often result in better mood consistency, clearer thought processes, and an overall more optimistic life perspective.

Weight Loss

Our approach to weight loss goes beyond the conventional diet and exercise regimen. Acknowledging the complexity of weight management, influenced by factors like metabolism, hormonal equilibrium, and emotional health, we provide personalized nutrition guidance, address hormonal imbalances, and suggest lifestyle adjustments. Our clients have not only achieved their weight loss objectives in a healthy and sustainable manner but also report enhanced vitality and a deeper understanding of their body's requirements, leading to lasting health improvements beyond mere weight reduction.
