Functional medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease.A functional approach targets the cause of the autoimmune diseases not just the symptoms.
Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness. A cause such as inflammation may lead to a number of different diagnoses, including auto immune diseases. The precise manifestation of each cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression. As a functional medicine consultant, I will integrate the introduction of whole foods, mindset and fitness on a bio-individual plan. Each person is different and what works for one does not necessarily work for all.
In the labyrinth of life, some individuals face an extraordinary array of health challenges, weaving a tapestry of ailments that seem insurmountable.
Debra Korn, a resilient soul and a Naturopathic Doctor, emerged from the shadows of chronic illness to become a beacon of inspiration and healing. Her story, rooted in a childhood marred by persistent discomfort, unravels a narrative of tenacity, discovery, and a commitment to holistic well-being. The genetic cards dealt to Debra were far from favorable, with a family tree branching out into the realms of diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. But Debra Korn was not one to succumb easily. Instead, armed with an indomitable spirit, she embarked on a quest to unearth the roots of her ailments and discover a path to true healing.
It unravels Debra Korn’s transformative journey from a life ensnared by illness to the realm of holistic wellness, where she not only conquered her own health battles but emerged as a beacon of hope for others navigating similar storms.
Drawing on my knowledge of nutrition, fitness & the immune system, I work with clients wanting to implement nutrition & lifestyle changes for a sustainable, healthy way of living.
Reduce inflammation & heal the body from autoimmune diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto Thyroiditis, MS, Lupus, Celiac, diabetes, various connective tissue disease, and skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea & acne.

We’ll co-create a personalized action plan to move you toward your ideal vision of health that will allow you to implement lasting changes to maintain balance in body, mind, and spirit.
I believe it’s important to look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins, or to create lists of restrictions or good / bad foods. Instead, I work with clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that’s flexible, enjoyable, and rewarding.
I empower you through ongoing support & guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health & happiness. We’ll navigate the world of contradictory nutrition & health advice together to explore what truly works for you.
