Feb 27, 2015 06:44PM
Nurse practitioner Amy Byers, founder of Byers Functional Medicine, is accepting new patients at her new location, 4433 North Oakland Avenue, Suite B, in Shorewood. She promises a refreshing, personalized type of health care, where the art and science of functional medicine involves a natural approach to healing the body and preventing chronic illness.
The clinic focuses on common and poorly treated or misdiagnosed health conditions including weight gain, fatigue, depression, sleep issues, female hormone balance and digestive problems. Treatment involves correcting the root cause of these health complaints by restoring the three main body systems: hormones, digestion and detoxification. Tools used to create individual wellness plans include exercise, stress management and lifestyle guidance with diet changes and proper supplements, based on a patient’s unique health history, goals and lab assessments.
Byers states, “Natural therapies have advanced to the point where we can now use the perfect blend of science and nature to create lab-guided, providerrecommended supplement programs and nutrition. Using the latest technologies, we can accurately assess specific nutrient deficiencies, measure hormone levels and test for infection and inflammation to determine the best therapeutic protocol for correcting many chronic health conditions. This technology can also be used on a preventive basis to maintain healthy functioning in those without any current health problems.”
