Naturopathic & Functional Medicine
When it comes to health, it isn’t always just a question of what is wrong, it is why. Getting to the root of the problem and treating the whole person is the foundation of functional medicine, and at 2B Well, our experts, Katrina Bogdon, ND, and Betsy Burris, R.Ph., moves beyond the traditional symptom-chasing approach and deliver a true paradigm shift in medicine. Together they bring a wealth of experience to their practice and offer you a holistic, yet scientific approach to health care.
Dr. Bogdon and Betsy truly get to know you and spend time with you, learning your story while looking for the underlying obstacles to optimal health.
Functional medicine is less pharmaceutically based than conventional medicine, but with a true complementary approach, there is a greater emphasis on lifestyle and nutraceuticals. Relying on her extensive experience, Betsy incorporates the best medical practices by blending traditional Western medicine with an integrative approach, and use the latest lab testing and other diagnostic techniques. For each client, individualized lab tests are ordered as needed and foundational lifestyle factors are examined – looking closely at sleep, exercise, nutrition, stress levels, relationships, and genetics.
Naturopathic healthcare combines knowledge of modern medical science with traditional natural health practices. Dr. Bogdon partners with you to find the least invasive and most effective methods to restoring your health through lifestyle recommendations, herbal approaches, homeopathy, supplements and hydrotherapy recommendations. She offers specialized testing and makes referrals to medical professionals, where appropriate. Trained at the oldest naturopathic college in North America, Dr. Bogdon is trained to safely integrate natural health recommendations along with the care of your conventional doctor.
Through this process we are able to create a supportive, therapeutic partnership with you, and address the role that diet, lifestyle, genetic predisposition, and environment plays in your health. This individually tailored approach allows us to employ numerous wellness techniques and practice proactive medicine while empowering you to take an active role in your own health and well being.
