Hello and Welcome!
Your health is very important. And choosing the right doctor or health care provider should be just as significant to your healing and recovery.
You need a guide, coach and partner in health who will not only listen to you but will do their best to figure out the root cause(s) of why and how your illness began so that vitality can be restored.
With a Functional Medicine approach to your health care, the whole body is evaluated, taking into consideration your physical body, emotional and psychological health, social and community connections, financial/economic status, cultural and environment influences, genetics and spirituality.
Naturopathic Medicine, a very similar perspective to health, has been around for a much longer period of time and continues to professionally transform today. Naturopathic Medicine is the originator and the purveyor of the more contemporary and growing term Functional Medicine. Although different titles, origination dates, mildly different descriptions, education and clinical training, they share a very similar vision to root cause diagnosis, evidence based natural healing and whole person treatment.
Functional/Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes proactive prevention along with the understanding that the body has inherent wisdom and power to heal, re-balance and maintain itself. Essentially, give the body what it needs, eliminate the obstacles that are causing dysfunction and dis-ease and recovery becomes much easier for the body.
Functional Medicine/Naturopathic Doctors typically prepare an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan to best address the unique needs and preferences of each patient.
Functional Medicine/Naturopathic Doctors are motivational teachers that believe in educating and encouraging their patients to make healthier and more permanent lifestyle changes.
Functional/Naturopathic Medicine aims to lower long term health care costs and can often reduce or eliminate the need for pharmaceutical medications and/or surgery.
Dr. Kristi Tompkins is a professionally licensed Functional Medicine Naturopathic Doctor and is honored and happy to help you live a healthier, more fulfilling life.
Ready to get started with feeling better?
Schedule a 60-75 minute New Patient Appointment to discuss your medical conditions and symptoms and receive a comprehensive evaluation of your health, ordering of functional medicine lab tests to determine what’s occurring in your body and a treatment plan created specifically for you.
Not sure yet and still have a few questions?
Schedule a preliminary Discovery Session, a complimentary 15-minute session created for you to briefly ask questions regarding your primary health concerns. This is also a great time to inquire about what to expect as a patient during the New Patient and Follow up Appointments.
