“You don’t have to settle for just “ok”… merely existing in survival mode with unexplained symptoms and no answers.”

What is Functional Medicine?

In Functional Medicine, we look for the underlying cause of each symptom or disease. Instead of throwing a pill at a symptom or disease, we believe there is ALWAYS a reason why the body is not functioning properly. People ask “what exactly do you do?” It’s simple.

  • We ask questions. 
  • We dig deep into your history. 
  • We run state of the art testing that you will not find in your regular doctor’s office. 
  • We listen to you and understand your concerns. 

All of these things point us in the direction of getting your body back to the normal homeostasis that it is meant to have. 

I began my journey into functional medicine when my son was struggling. I thought he had Autism, he was struggling with sleep, social interaction and our daily life was miserable. Through Functional Medicine, he completely changed. He began sleeping, he was able to interact with peers, he was no longer having tantrums all the time. From there I became extremely interested in FM and how to help other families who were struggling with similar things. It has now blossomed into helping women, men, and children with many different complaints.

Sarah Campbell, MPAS, PA-C

Clinic Co-Founder & Functional Medicine Provider

Sarah has had the privilege to practice as a board-certified Physician Assistant for eight years. She has worked in many different settings: inpatient hospital setting, family medicine clinic, skilled nursing facilities, and surgery.

Over the years, she began to notice people were getting sicker {ranging from random illnesses to very severe illnesses} at a higher frequency and a much younger age. This bothered Sarah because as she was treating younger patients who should be healthy, they were far from it. Yet, when she ran all of the tests that she knew to run at the time, they all came back normal. This left both her and the patient feeling frustrated because she had no explanations for what they were experiencing even though she believed them 100% about the things that were ailing them {joint pain, chronic fatigue, bloating, abdominal pain, weight gain despite dieting, brain fog, random/recurring fevers, poor focus, etc}. She continued to see these patients and only had prescriptions {band-aids that covered the real root issue} to offer them.

It wasn’t until her own family started on a difficult journey with her children that she began to find answers. She has three children, and right before her youngest was born, she and her husband noticed that their middle child was starting to have tantrums and meltdowns all the time. He would tantrum every 3-5 minutes and wake up 4 – 5 times per night; he was chronically constipated with very pale skin and dark circles under his eyes. He battled recurrent ear infections and was not able to communicate his needs effectively, which resulted in even more tantrums. They finally got a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder for their son, and things started to make sense. But, they found themselves in survival mode. Sarah then heard about Functional Medicine from a friend. At first, she was skeptical, but she knew they needed to do something. So she sought out help from a Functional Medicine provider. They began their journey with testing, diet changes, and supplementation. Within 3 weeks of his diet changes, his teacher at school said, “he is a completely different kid in class… he is actually talking to other kids and participating. He is starting to smile now in class!” At home, they also saw improvements. His tantrums were significantly less frequent, he only woke up 1-2 times a night, and when he did wake up, he went right back to sleep.

It was a miracle!! Thus began Sarah’s obsession with Functional Medicine and how it applies to behavioral health for children and teens and chronic ailments for adults.

Sarah has had the privilege to treat numerous families, children, and adults to find the root causes of their complex ailments and behavioral/developmental delays. Sarah considers herself honored that God chose her to be the vessel for healing for so many people, and it is her passion to advocate and educate for true health and well-being for all.

Amy Nold, PA-C

Functional Medicine Provider

Amy Nold, PA-C, is a board-certified Functional Medicine Physician Assistant trained in Functional Medicine. She has 10 years of experience in women’s health, and it is her passion to help others find answers to their health concerns. Amy was intrigued with Functional Medicine when she saw a few of her colleagues posting about their Functional Medicine journeys.  As she continued to treat women for hormone imbalances, depression, anxiety etc. she began to observe that the treatment (birth control, antidepressants etc) was often ineffective or it created more problems.  This is when she began asking the question “Is there something more to all of this that we are missing? What is the root cause of these imbalances and why aren’t we treating those?” 
 
She then began to think of her own family’s health. Her son was being treated for eczema, allergies and constipation and wasn’t improving.  Also, her husband had been diagnosed with high blood pressure at the age of 16 and had been on medication since. In both of these situations, no one had ever asked the question “WHY are they struggling with these conditions in the first place?”  She began researching and treating her own family and within a few months, her husband was able to stop his blood pressure medication.  Amy also had her own hormonal health journey after being on birth control for over 12 years which caused a cascade of side effects.  Through very specific testing, practicing a balanced lifestyle, making sure she is fueling her body with proper nutrition and optimizing detoxification, Amy has managed to heal her hormones and feels better than ever!
