A functional medicine practitioner takes an evidence-based approach to systematically assess an individual’s health parameters whilst still understanding that everyone is unique. They look for the cause of the cause of the cause – on in other words – the initial imbalance that lead to the illness, symptom or condition.
Jasmin still considers herself as a naturopath, nutritionist and herbalist, however functional medicine training has allowed her to enhance her evidence-based approach and has also provided a more structured process on how to assess each client thoroughly and individually.
Jasmin therefore utilises aspects of naturopathy, herbalism, nutrition and functional medicine in her treatment and assessment. Her background in biomedical science compel her to be evidence-based, but not evidence limited. Many of her clients are allied health professionals, such as nurses, paramedics, scientists, chiropractors, dietitians and nutritionists looking for an evidence-based approach to their health concerns.
