Taking a functional nutrition approach to gut health can not only address the annoying to debilitating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress but also get to the root of these imbalances. Functional Nutrition combines the most appropriate dietary measures combined with what is called a 4 R (remove, replace, repair and reinoculate) protocol approach that is tailored to you in order to bring your gastrointestinal health back into balance. Also applying Functional GI stool testing when needed takes the most advanced and comprehensive assessment of complete GI health, assessing the root cause of most gut complaints.

A functional stool test can provide immediate, actionable clinical information for the management of gastrointestinal health. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies and biomarkers, this test offers valuable insight into digestive function, intestinal inflammation, and the intestinal microbiome in order to make meaningful changes in diet, lifestyle, and microbiome health for optimal gut health and for all the other systems and organs impacted by our gut health. Your gut is the epicenter of your physiological and mental health.

If your health goals include a better immune system, better digestion and elimination, brain and mood health, skin health, hormonal health, weight loss, and chronic disease prevention, then start with your gut!

I can’t say enough great things about Leona. She has absolutely changed my life. After suffering with GI issues for some time, she put together a tailored approach based on my genetic makeup, allergies and sensitivities I have, and my overall health goals. Within a period of 4 months, I have completely transformed my diet, lifestyle and overall health. All of my blood work is now within healthy ranges, I’ve lost 25 pounds and I absolutely feel great! And most importantly my GI issues are completely gone!

I have battled a serious intestinal issue for over 7 years that was basically running my life. After intense personal research, visits to over 15 health care practitioners (both eastern and western) and spending tens of thousands of $$, my ill health and my frustrations were nearing their limits. Finally, I was referred to Leona West . I have been working with her for the past 6 months and at age 56 I can say I am now enjoying the best health I have ever had. Not only has she actually cured what was a chronic condition, I have more energy and vitality than ever before.

Her approach is methodical, intelligent, thoroughly thought out and tailored to me. She is fully committed to getting to the root of the issue and with me she did. Leona is an exceptional and rare find. I feel extremely fortunate to have her available to me.
