Have you been wondering what functional wellness is and how it can impact your health? Here at Pursue Wellness, we are functional medicine practitioners, which means we promote wellness based on assessing every individual’s needs. We seek to look at the bigger picture of health, and instead of only treating symptoms, we strive to understand you as a whole and address the root of the problem. Every person’s needs will greatly differ, which is why we look at every aspect of your health, diet and overall lifestyle when assessing your needs. We love that functional nutrition is never a one-size-fits-all; instead, it’s a highly customized holistic health approach that will help heal from the inside out. So, why should you work with a functional dietitian, and what are the benefits of having one? Read on to learn more!

Why should I work with a functional dietitian?

Functional dietitians look at you as a whole, and are able to identify what foods can help your body, what exercises would be beneficial, and how you can reduce stress to help your body heal. When you work with a functional dietitian (such as the team at Pursue Wellness), we will tailor a plan based on who you are as a person, what your needs are, and what’s right for you. We do this through therapeutic diets, customized meal plans, and cooking advice. Functional dietitians are also able to help you identify what roadblocks are preventing you from being successful, and will help you overcome them by giving you the knowledge, skills, and motivation you need.

What are the benefits of working with a functional dietitian?

Functional dietitians are different from other practitioners in that we deal with more than just symptoms. We understand why a body is out of balance, and will provide a plan to help restore that balance. This can be anything from diet, exercise, stress management, supplementation and/or proper sleep, but a functional dietitian will be able to tailor each of these to improve your lifestyle and overall health.
