I’m Kari Lockrem, Functional Health Coach. The functional medicine model is an individualized, client-centered, science-based approach to health. Empowering clients to take control of their wellness by addressing underlying causes of illness and imbalance. I believe wellness includes mind, body, and spirit. I love to see beauty from ashes in every aspect of life. You don't have to stay stuck in toxic habits, thoughts or emotions. You don't have to resign to what you think you're predestined to because of family health history or even your own genetics. There are a vast amount of natural remedies to ensure your body is functioning optimally.
For years I have struggled with health issues; leaky gut, food allergies, inflammation, worsening outdoor allergies, acne and anxiety. I became frustrated trying to find a treatment since all of my labs came back "normal". This started my journey to find that “normal ranges” are different for everyone and that definition of range is based off of the standard American’s health. I wanted to feel better, I want optimal health, and I want to know my immune system can fight off all disease including cancer. What is considered normal ranges wasn’t enough. I have discovered nutritional deficiencies, stress, and eating the wrong foods lead to illness.
This lead me to study functional medicine. I want to help you get to the root without the run-around. My passion is gut health and how it pertains to weight loss and overall health.
If you are struggling with gut issues, metabolic issues or even managing stress, Getting proper testing done is the best place to start. I would love to help empower you to take control of your health.
