After 2 ½ years without a proper diagnosis, someone recommended Tressa Breindel. I am so thankful that she knew the correct testing to do and has been my lifesaver ever since. She brought me from living in a fog, depressed, tired, emotional, anxious and not wanting to cope with life to actually living and loving my life.

Gut and digestive health

Healing begins with the gut

Your gut is the foundation of your health. Research connects imbalances in the gut to everything from chronic inflammation, brain and mood disorders, skin issues and the menstrual cycle. Even autoimmune conditions may only exist in the context of a gut health disruption known as intestinal permeability or leaky gut. Whether you have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), skin problems, or brain fog, investigating and optimizing your gut and digestion is essential to healing—and we can help you do that.

Recover from chronic disease

Living with a chronic health condition but not getting the support you need? Whether it is an autoimmune disease, chronic Lyme disease, mold or biotoxin illness, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), fibromyalgia (FM), or something no one has been able to diagnose—we’re here to help. Rather than simply prescribing medication to help you cover up your symptoms, our cutting-edge Functional Medicine approach allows us to identify and heal the root causes of illness in your body. We’ll work with you to develop an effective, evidence-based treatment plan and help you to experience a new level of wellness.

 

Optimal aging

Promote life-long wellness

As you age, your cells and bodily systems decline in efficiency and maintenance. This often leads to symptoms like fatigue, aches and pains, hormonal changes, trouble sleeping and a decline in overall vitality. However, there is a great deal you can do to delay and mitigate the aging process. Through personalized diet and lifestyle plans and advanced Functional Medicine techniques, we can help improve both your potential lifespan and your quality of life.

 

Hormone dysregulation

Boost your wellness through healthy hormones

Hormones are complex signaling networks in your body. Different hormones (such as thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones) significantly affect your health, including your metabolism, energy, immune system, aging, and sleep. Dysregulations in hormone signaling can result in fatigue, mood irregularities, brain fog, menstrual issues (PMS, painful periods and menstrual migraines), and fertility trouble, as well as contribute to pain and immune dysfunction or inflammation throughout your body. We help you balance your hormones, using labs like DUTCH hormone testing, so that you can live your best possible life.

Support your best self

Struggling with obtaining or maintaining your optimal weight? Weight is largely a side effect of your overall health and well-being and is highly dependent on factors like hormones, nutrient and inflammation irregularities, stress, insufficient sleep or physical activity, and an unhealthy relationship with food, eating and yourself. We help you investigate and optimize these areas of your life, bringing your weight naturally into balance as a result.
