conditions and symptoms

fatigue

Fatigue is a common symptom, and is often the most concerning symptom, for many of my patients. Fatigue has varied causes, including insomnia, stress, depressed mood, and inflammation. Properly treating fatigue requires meticulously sorting through all of the factors contributing to a patient's fatigue, as well as obtaining appropriate labs to help deepen understanding of fatigue's health impacts.

Fatigue

leaky gut

Leaky Gut is a descriptive term for disruption of the intestinal lining that is both a result of and a contributor to activation of the Gut-associated Lymph Tissue (GALT). Leaky Gut causes include, but are not limited to, Celiac Disease, SIBO, food intolerance, stress, medications, alcohol abuse, heavy metals, and dysbiosis. Leaky Gut can lead to the development of autoimmune disorders and other inflammatory conditions.

autoimmunity

Autoimmunity is a condition in which a person's own immune system creates antibodies that can go on to attack organs including the thyroid, joints, skin, connective tissue, kidneys, blood vessels, eyes, and intestinal lining. In functional and integrative medicine, it is thought that autoimmunity develops when there is chronic inflammation in the small intestine that results in Leaky Gut. Avenues of autoimmune treatment include healing the gut lining and restoring healthy intestinal bacterial balance.

Autoimmunity

excess weight

Overweight and obesity are epidemic in our society. The cause of excess fat formation is multifactorial. It is not simply a matter of excess calories. My approach to weight loss focuses on the primary goal of fixing physiology and restoring health. Sustainable weight loss can then occur without the gimmicks and excessive will-power that is required in most fad diets.

“I have two somewhat rare health conditions (neither of which was diagnosed before I saw Dr. B.) which caused a severe health breakdown in 2014. Dr. B. identified the conditions and their relationship to multiple co-existing conditions. She always had thoughtful, accurate, understandable recommendations. She continued to stick by every change, up and down, and has helped me manage a very complicated medical situation. “NO OTHER DOCTOR WAS ABLE TO INVEST IN ME AND MY HEALTH. The BEST!”
