Nurturing Breast Health through Functional Medicine with Dr. Jenn Simmons


Identify Root Causes of Symptoms, Not Suppress
By investigating factors such as genetics, environmental influences, lifestyle choices, nutrition, and stress levels, functional health practitioners seek to understand the interconnectedness of various bodily systems. This comprehensive approach seeks the underlying causes, promoting true healing and long-term wellness rather than temporary symptom relief.

The Empowerment of Education
Education empowers individuals by providing them with a deeper understanding of their health, enabling them to actively participate in their healthcare decisions, and encouraging them to take ownership of their well-being. Through education, personalized plans, and collaborative relationships with practitioners, functional health empowers individuals to make informed choices, implement lifestyle modifications, and proactively work towards optimal health and vitality. By shifting the focus from passive patients to active participants, education empowers individuals to take charge of their health and pursue a path of wellness.

The Benefits of Fasting and Grain-Free Diet

When it comes to eating clean and healthy, it is good for clients to try a sort of fasting. Some benefits include:

1. Fasting and cutting grains can decrease inflammation levels in the body, which is associated with various chronic conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, and certain cancers

2. Avoiding grains can promote better digestive health and alleviate conditions such as bloating, gas, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms.

3. Fasting and cutting unnecessary foods can promote weight loss by reducing calorie intake and stimulating the body’s fat-burning processes. It may also help regulate appetite, improve metabolism, and aid in cancer and autoimmune conditions
