What is Mindfulness Medicine?

In addition to identifying and correcting for root causes, both in the body and the mind, we also educate clients along the way. Comprehensive health education helps empower clients to take an active role and engage with creating a lifestyle and eating habits that will sustain robust wellness. We want people to understand mechanisms behind disease and how choices they make affect their wellbeing. This promotes informed decisions with understanding about how and why behaviors impact health.


  • Functional Medicine Lab Testing
  • Research-Based Treatments
  • Root Cause Resolution
  • Nutrition / Lifestyle Protocols


  • Mindfulness Practices
  • Mind Root Cause Resolution
  • Emotions / Thoughts / Beliefs
  • Attitude / Worldview / Purpose


  • Client-Clinician Collaboration
  • Compassion / Empathy
  • Presence / Perspective
  • Deeply Touching the Heart
After illness is reversed and preventative practices are established, there is an opportunity to focus on character development. Many approaches to wellness would stop at prevention. We, however, both address prevention and work toward dynamic growth. Mindfulness practices can propel people forward into greater happiness and help cultivate resilience in the face of stressors. We bridge the fields of functional medicine, mindfulness, and personal development through integrating root-cause resolution plus frameworks and practices for personal & professional evolution.

Mindfulness Medicine Integrates Together:

  • Functional Medicine (Evidence Based + Root Cause Resolution + Prevention)
  • Mindfulness (Addresses Mind + Supported by Robust Research + Daily Practices)
  • Personal Development (Motivation + Decision Making + Relationships + Purpose)
