Many modern medical theories focus on suppressing symptoms, at the cost of ignoring the root of your health imbalances. At Native Sun Nutrition and Functional Medicine in Las Vegas, NV, we believe in a different approach. Discover the benefits of functional medicine and how this personalized practice can help you maximize your healing potential, elevate your well-being, and set you up for not just longevity but increase quality of life.

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a practice that focuses on enhancing overall well-being through the body’s ability to heal itself. Dr. Caroline Williams at Native Sun Nutrition and Functional Medicine is here to help your body restore balance through a holistic approach that integrates scientific findings, mental and emotional health awareness, and detailed medical histories. Functional medicine addresses many common health imbalances and healing damage in the body, including gut dysbiosis, leaky gut/gut hyperpermeability, adrenal insufficiency, thyroid imbalances, and overall dysfunction of the endocrine system.

What are the main benefits of functional medicine?

We aim to investigate the root cause of your health imbalances, whether that means addressing nutritional deficiencies, promoting elimination of toxin accumulation, clearing stealth pathogens, or even changing negative thought patterns, as well as exploring a family history of dysfunction to support a healthier future. In addition, a functional medicine approach can lower your risk of developing other disease processes in the future, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

What can I expect from a functional medicine treatment process?

When you embark on your journey to better health, you will begin with a treatment plan that seeks to balance your endocrine system, promote mineral replenishment, and detoxify your liver and digestive system, etc. Dr. Williams will help with balancing the immune system to reduce the potential for allergy response, the reduction of inflammation, and the promotion of improved circulation. Note that this is a general outline - your treatment plan will be customized to meet your individual needs.
