We combine conventional and unconventional medicine to help you feel like yourself again. Instead of using a band-aid approach to treat your symptoms, we get to the root causes of your condition by learning about your bio-individuality and doing comprehensive lab testing. Then we find solutions using nutrition, supplements, lifestyle and exercise that address those causes.
The birch tree is a symbol of new beginnings, growth, and healing. It’s also incredibly resilient when faced with harsh conditions—just like you. At Birchwell, our mission is to be the last stop on your search for answers and the first step on your path to real healing.
A different approach to healthcare
My path to functional medicine started when I had to take my health into my own hands. I was battling a cocktail of skin, gut and hormonal issues. The conventional care pathways were not helping me feel better. I received band-aid solutions like (yet another) prescription. I was told that my health issues were "just in your head" and that everything is fine because my labs came back "normal." Red flag.
At the time, I was a Dartmouth College Math and Computer Science grad working in tech and consulting. But I realized I wanted to use my A-type personality to optimize peoples’ health instead of software—starting with my own. So I went back to school to get my Master's of Science in Nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. I learned many people have the ability to heal themselves with thorough personalized dietary interventions, therapeutic supplementation, and targeted exercise and lifestyle modifications. Along the way, I discovered functional medicine testing and treatments - and I finally started to see real improvements in my patients' health.
After spending years studying evidence-based nutrition from both a conventional and unconventional lens, I’m sorry to say there are no shortcuts or perfect algorithms. However, we have more power than we think to profoundly change our lives through advanced functional medicine practices.
At Birchwell, we want you to heal. We want you to relish your relationships, crush your goals, and truly live.
