RENEW YOU 2024

Detox & Re-set for the New Year 

If there is one thing we have learned from the past few years, it is that making our health a priority is vitally important. Many people’s New Year resolutions focus on getting back to healthy habits and clean eating, so let’s do it together!

Join Swathi for this detox and re-set that will help us prioritize our health by focusing on better health habits, using good, clean food as our best “medicine,” and all the ways we can optimize our health in 2024! We’ll talk about how to improve metabolism, create long term healthy habits, and as always, focus on how to EAT well, MOVE well, SLEEP well and POOP well to BE Well.

Swathi will begin with a good detox and then will introduce and guide everyone through the Mito Food Plan which combines phytonutrients, healthy fats, and proteins to give your body all of the energy & resources it needs. Each session the group will discuss their progress, share recipes, and dig in deep to learn about important topics including intermittent fasting, the importance of phytonutrients, healthy versus unhealthy fats, and feeling great from the inside out! Classes are preferably in person, but are available by Zoom if you are unable to attend.

What Actually is Functional Medicine? Class

Functional Medicine is an approach to health care that focuses on finding and treating the root causes of disease to prevent illness. Our providers look at each patient individually to assess how their unique history, genetics, environment and lifestyle influence their long-term health. 

On the other hand, traditional medicine focuses on treating specific problems individually. You have a cough? Here’s some cough medicine. You broke a bone? Here’s cast. You have high blood pressure? Here’s a pill.

Functional Medicine providers think much deeper than this and try to answer questions like: “Why did you get a cough?” “Is there an underlying problem that led to this broken bone?” and “Why is your blood pressure high?” Then the functional medicine provider can treat the underlying issue to resolve and prevent illness and disease.
