Do you feel frustrated and hopeless about your health?

If you do, we understand your frustration, and that’s why we’re here to help.

We understand the disappointment of only being offered prescription after prescription for symptoms that never go away. We understand how hard it can be to not feel heard, understood, or worse, taken seriously for your chronic symptoms.

At Rising Tide Wellness, you will be empowered to take charge of your own health. Through functional medicine, we will give you the tools to know your body inside and out and to feel and look your best.

Why Rising Tide Wellness?

“Something isn’t right!”, “I don’t feel like myself!” We hear this time and time again from new clients who have seen many providers and even specialists. We know how frustrating it is to feel like something is wrong, only to be told over and over that, you are FINE – but the good news is that you’re finally in the right place!

Unlike many health providers who are allowed 15 minutes with their patients and have limited access to treatment options, outside of prescription medications, we take a personalized approach to helping you heal your body. By using advanced lab testing, in addition to addressing each of the pillars of health creation, we help you identify exactly what’s out of balance, and help you learn what your body needs to thrive.

Our Approach

Our functional medicine approach is unique, personalized, and comprehensive. Our goal is much more than just resolving your chronic health complaints. We want to help you feel strong and resilient and to be a version of yourself you are proud of. We achieve this through a blend of traditional and functional medicine modalities to safely create optimal health and well-being.

After our in-depth intake and exploring both past and present symptoms, we’ll craft a personalized treatment protocol to move past chronic health issues and set you up for long-term health.

Discover Root Causes

At Rising Tide Wellness, we ask the question “Why?” We focus on getting to the root cause of your symptoms by addressing imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

We focus on what people struggle with most as they age. We look at all the triggers of chronic illnesses – including gut and hormonal imbalances, toxicity in your environment, systemic inflammation, impaired liver detoxification, and nutrient insufficiencies. We look for the reasons WHY you feel so fatigued, can’t release stubborn weight, and face symptoms such as moodiness and brain fog.

Why We Are Different

Functional Medicine is the medicine of the future. We use it to restore your body’s innate healing potential, and not just treat symptoms. It uses a combination of diagnostic testing with healthier lifestyle practices, to treat the whole person and not just parts of your body.

A “one size fits all” approach never works. This is why people often don’t get the answers they are looking for from their primary care doctors. At Rising Tide Wellness, we don’t rely on basic solutions or guesswork, we pinpoint the real reason why you don’t feel well – even if you’ve been told that “everything’s fine”.
