What is Functional Medicine
At Fundamental Wellness, we take helping you reach optimal health and vitality very seriously. We work to identify the unique underlying causes of disease and treating them. We practice a new model of medicine that incorporates the best diagnostic tools and technologies from conventional medicine, as well as emerging tests and tools that help us identify the critical imbalances that are at the root of all illness. We provide a safe space for people that offers patient-centered, not disease-centered, medicine.
At Fundamental Wellness, we take a “Back to Basics” approach. Here’s how we do it.
1) DNA Testing
We like to understand your body’s programming by seeing exactly what your genetic blueprint looks like. Struggle with knowing which food plan is right for you? With DNA Testing…question NO MORE. We will look at your body’s instruction manual to give us the answer.
2) Real-Time Nutritional Analysis
We examine blood and urine testing to see how your body utilizes nutrients and identify deficiencies to understand why you don’t feel your best. With this knowledge we are able to make necessary nutritional adjustments to meet your body’s individual unique needs.
3) Optimize Gut Health
Without a proper functioning gut, your whole world can be disrupted. You can’t absorb nutrients well and it can be the main player in the cause of chronic inflammation. With this stool test, we fully understand what the gut’s health looks like at a microscopic level.
4) Putting it all Together
Using the data gathered from testing we customize your “Forever Food Plan” and correct the “errors” your body has to get you on the path to feeling your best!
As a Nurse Practitioner and busy wife and mother of 4 children. There was a time in my life I was simply “surviving.” Work, kids, wifing, and housework had me living like a powder keg ready to explode. Thankful I survived each day (and so did my children). I would stress eat and cope in other unhealthy ways to just survive the hours and the necessary workload I had with my many responsibilities. Fortunately, I found the Health Coach Institute that gave me a window into healthier ways of coping. I began to understand WHY I had certain behaviors and with that new found insight, I was able to begin to change my behavior. Much of this began with a change in my mindset. With my health coaching you will learn how to overcome unhealthy coping skills. My specialty is emotional eating. I like to combine my Functional Medicine approach with my health coaching. Be sure to check it out or book a free DISCOVERY call with me to learn what may be holding you from achieving your goals. You made it this far. What do you have to lose? Sometimes all it takes…..is that very first step towards change.

Not long ago, I found myself in a place that I knew I couldn’t stay. I was living a life that was very unhealthy and bound to take me on a path of self-destruction. I had been gaining weight for years, suffering from severe heartburn daily, doctoring for conditions like swelling and iritis but not finding answers. I felt achy, exhausted, insecure, and had zero self-confidence. I was feeling frustrated and discouraged, because no matter what I tried, NOTHING WORKED! I found myself in a downward spiral. That’s when I discovered Fundamental Wellness. I enrolled in the RECLAIM Your Life program and Jenna started working with me. Before long, I was getting the answers I was in desperate need of. We worked through issues like food sensitivities and understanding genetic predispositions, to relationships with not only those around me but with myself, and much more. Jenna helped me set goals that didn’t overwhelm me and provided me with the support and encouragement that I needed to meet them. The best part is that she helped me rewire my brain so that I can be different without having to think about being different. With my new mindset, I feel confident that the new lifestyle changes that I’ve adopted will be ones I can live with for the rest of my life. I was able to get off all prescription meds, I am down 50 pounds, have more energy than I’ve had in I can’t even remember when. I feel like I am ALIVE again. I can be the person I want to be, and let me tell you, that feels AMAZING!
I used to struggle with self-worth. I had settled as a spectator in my life because I didn’t think I deserved more. I let traumatic situations, fear, and failures define me. My marriage was strained as we dealt with years of infertility and 3 miscarriages, but we persevered through. However, a piece of me was gone with each child that I lost. I had become a shell of a person who refused to dream or be excited for the future. I simply waited and always expected the worst to occur. I ate to numb the pain rather than deal with emotions, fear, and worry.
Jenna helped me begin the path to living my best life. She helped me to see my challenges as lessons to be learned and grow from. She dared me to dream of my perfect life and put it into action. I now see myself as a resilient and empowered wife and mother of 2 and have more energy than ever!
