Personalized Functional Medicine Care Via My UltraWellness Center Colleagues
Here at The UltraWellness Center, we take pride in our amazing staff. If you’re not familiar with our history, UWC was founded in 2004 to provide patients with a safe place to get to the root cause of their health problems. This clinic was created around my passion for Functional Medicine and taking a comprehensive systems-based approach to the body to find long-lasting wellness. I have gathered some of the most talented minds in Functional Medicine to join me, some of whom I’ve worked with for more than 20 years. From Functional Medicine doctors to nutritionists, nurses and physician assistants, we have a wide range of staff with an immense knowledge base, ready and waiting to help you feel your best.
To help you get to know a few of our staff, we’ve put together a short video of exclusive highlights from my recently released docu-series, Broken Brain 2.
In this video, you’ll hear from the following practitioners on a variety of topics we are often asked about at UWC:
- Dr. Elizabeth Boham dives into the topic of metabolic flexibility and carbohydrate intolerance, sharing how we can create a personalized diet that truly supports our unique metabolic needs. She also addresses how to assess food intolerances and when to employ special diets, like the ketogenic diet, for optimal results.
- Dr. Todd LePine discusses the important issue of inflammation and how it relates to our immune response. Inflammation plays a vital role in the aging process; Dr. LePine talks about how we can age optimally and the importance of detoxification and why limiting certain environmental exposures, like electromagnetic frequencies, is a major part of that.
- Dr. George Papanicolaou sheds some light on the new research of the glymphatic system, which is how the brain connects to the immune system, and explains why having leaky gut leads to a leaky brain. He also gets into the topics of neuroplasticity and cognition and how oxidative stress impacts mitochondrial health.
- Nutritionist Lisa Dreher breaks down the importance of balancing blood sugar and how to do it with real foods, as well as who can benefit from a gut healing diet. Lisa shares some inspiring tips on how to start with small attainable goals to find lasting success.
- Nutrition Director Maggie Ward discusses the benefits of stool testing, understanding our bacterial diversity, and how this impacts more than just the gut. She also talks about SNPs and nutrigenomics and how we can tailor supplements for our individual genetic needs.
This short video contains a wealth of valuable information and highlights several of our wonderful staff that are here to support you.
We hope you’ll check it out and keep these helpful topics in mind during your next visit.
Wishing You Health and Happiness,
