Functional Medicine Seeks the Root of Common Symptoms

Patients’ health problems are too often overlooked by conventional testing methods that ignore common symptoms, says Jennifer Clemente, a clinically trained, board-certified nutritionist who specializes in a whole-body approach to health and wellness. Bloating, fatigue, skin conditions, digestive issues, weight gain or loss, brain fog, mood swings, sleep disturbance, pain, sugar imbalances and hormonal issues are among the many symptoms that can indicate an underlying problem, she says.

In her practice, Body Bliss Nutrition, Clemente uses cutting-edge testing to help uncover the deeper layers and root of her patients’ health concerns. Those tests include, but aren’t limited to, hydrogen/methane breath analysis for small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), food intolerance testing, stool analysis and genetic nutritional evaluation. “I will assess prior testing from a functional perspective, utilizing a much more stringent set of guidelines that often reveal problems where conventional lab analysis overlooks them,” she says. “If you’ve been to several doctors only to be told there’s nothing wrong, a functional evaluation may be for you.”

Clemente says her approach offers a unique alternative by combining natural therapies with nutritional plans tailored specifically for the patient’s needs. “The right plan will remove triggers of inflammation, optimize nutrients and magnify health by supporting the body’s immune, metabolic and detoxification pathways. All conditions may be improved by supporting the function of the body.”
