About Signature Wellness

Signature Wellness is focused on getting to the real reasons why you feel “off”.

We find and resolve the root cause of your symptoms so you can get WELL and LOVE the way you feel!

Does This Sound Like You?

Is brain fog slowing you down and destroying  productivity in your job?

Do you feel exhausted in the morning and then crash in the afternoon?

Fatigue or exhaustion turning basic tasks like laundry and groceries into grueling chores?

Have social outings and hobbies become a thing of the past (you don’t have enough energy to get through the things you have to do, let alone the things you really want to do)?

Are changes like thinning hair, weight gain, and even adult acne keeping you from feeling your best?

You could have a hormone imbalance!

Finding the Root Cause of your Hormone Imbalance

Our approach to hormone imbalance is different! Instead of just reaching for the prescription pad, we look at the factors that could be causing your symptoms, then get to work to help you resolve the issues so you can get back to feeling like yourself again.

To balance the “symphony” of your hormones, other factors also have to be examined, such as gut health, food, environmental toxins and lifestyle factors that may be creating issues.

Rediscover You. Rediscover Living.

Our Core Values Of Care

An Integrative Approach

Unlike conventional medical care, we first help patients heal and then empower them with the knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now... with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!

Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date functional medicine testing, nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to help you achieve hormonal and gut balance.

Dedicated Attention

In your typical 7-minute doctor's visit, there is little time to understand the potential causes of your symptoms and do deeper on how they may point to some more serious imbalances. During your in-depth intake consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your chronic symptoms. This review includes your past medical history, potential hormone issues, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of your symptoms.

Personalized Care

We don't follow a "one-size-fits-all" approach because each person is unique and has unique health challenges . There are so many factors that may be to blame for your symptoms, but oftentimes we see primary imbalances in four major areas or "pillars". These pillars greatly impact each other and must all be balanced to allow your body to thrive . The pillars include hormonal balance, digestive health, lifestyle habits and environmental toxins. We focus on these four pillars with testing and nutrition but also educate our patient on how to balance them for continued health once they are free from their symptoms and regain their energy.

Innovative Treatments

Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.

At Signature Wellness, we are trained in up-to-date medicine – including the best, most advanced testing and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals .

Root Cause Resolution

"I just don't feel normal, not like myself". We hear this all the time from our patients and it's hard to understand why when you haven't yet discovered the major root causes that are to blame for your symptoms.

We have specifically created programs based on the best blend of traditional and functional medicine to unearth the root causes of you symptoms. This includes in-depth hormonal and gut testing, discovery if you suffer from toxic overload, if you have undiagnosed food intolerances and allergies, and even how your mindset impacts your choices.

Co-Creating Health

Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of getting healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.

We also leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We also harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.
