Functional Medicine is a branch of holistic medicine that isolates the root causes of health issues rather than addressing symptoms. Functional medicine utilizes modern advances in lab testing to discover imbalances in our Gastro-intestinal systems, hormone system, metabolic function, and detoxification pathways… just to name a few. We then treat the imbalances we see using herbal remedies, supplements, nutritional counseling and lifestyle modifications. I have helped patients from two to ninety-two years of age to overcome chronic illness.
Recommended testing is customized to each patient and may include:
– Functional Bloodwork
– Dutch Hormone testing
– Saliva Adrenal testing
– GI Map stool testing
– Organic Acids Testing
– Myco-tox testing for mold and heavy metal exposure
Please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about how functional medicine can be helpful for your healthcare goals.
I've been going to Megan since the fall of 2016. After an ectopic pregnancy followed by a miscarriage four months later, I was devastated and my OB told me there was "nothing I could do" to improve my chances for a successful pregnancy in the future. Well, she was wrong. I started seeing Megan and she really helped me get on track through a myriad of lifestyle changes. Megan also helped me track my cycles, and she was able to pinpoint that I have a super short luteal phase which is linked to a higher rate of miscarriage. By working with her, we were able to move my ovulation up and increase the length of my luteal phase. That is something I never would have figured out on my own, let alone been able to correct on my own. No OB would have bothered looking at my menstrual cycle chart to figure this out either. Low and behold, in April of 2017 I got pregnant with my son, who was born in January 2018. I had a wonderful pregnancy. No nausea, felt great, and baby did great too. I attribute much of that to Megan's good work. If you are struggling to conceive and looking for a smart, compassionate person to get you on the right path, Megan is your person! She had so many tips and tricks for me along the way. On top of that, she is just an awesome, fun person. It is truly a joy to work with her. I am currently working with her again as we are gearing up to try for #2!
As a birth doula I have seen first hand how beneficial Megan's work can be for mommas preparing for birth, mommas past their guess date and those in the process of birthing their babies. She goes above and beyond to help mommas have their babies. As a client I know that Megan is warm, calm, reassuring, professional and knowledgable. She will make sure you are comfortable, that she has a full understanding of your needs and answers any of your questions before she begins treatment. I highly recommend Megan!
Megan has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. I now have two beautiful little ones because of her support -- really. She is a miracle worker - and not just for fertility. I have counted on her, even recently, to help get me through cold season because I had gotten sick 4 times within 3 months. Once I started seeing her again, I am proud to say, I haven't been since! I could go on and on about her, but I will leave you with this. Too few in this world are lucky enough to encounter people like Megan. I could not recommend her more highly.
It's hard for me to convey what a blessing Megan and her team have been in my fertility journey (read struggle) over the past five years. I first saw Megan after dealing with recurring miscarriage and a long bout of infertility. I had never done acupuncture before and quite frankly, I was skeptical. Megan's genuine and caring demeanor quickly alleviated my initial fears and skepticism and the treatment has since become a truly enjoyable experience for me. Megan has treated me in parallel with my fertility specialists, providing acupuncture treatment and just as importantly, loving moral and emotional support during an IVF protocol that was cancelled and converted to an IUI. That IUI resulted in a pregnancy and the birth of my baby boy. I could not be more grateful to Megan for both the acupuncture treatment and moral support I received along the way having been a nervous wreck after experiencing miscarriages. Skipping forward a couple years, I was told by multiple doctors that it was unlikely I would conceive naturally (or at least may take a long time) because I had only one tube and a low AMH score. Nevertheless, I went to see Megan to try to normalize and understand my cycle. Shortly thereafter and much to everyone's surprise, I became pregnant with my baby girl. Please go see her if you are struggling with fertility!
I got the results from my Doctor and they have confirmed my Pregnancy. Yay!! I am forever grateful to you Megan. We have been literally trying for 4 years now with no clarity on what was happening in my body. You are really what I was looking for "The Answers". We love you.
