"When a flower doesn't bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower" - Alexander Den Heijer
The Hansell Center for Functional Medicine’s goal is to partner and collaborate with patients to help them achieve their optimal health. As an athlete, Dr. Hansell understands that health is not simply the absence of disease, but the ideal function of all the body’s systems working as one, with the ability to heal itself with proper support.
Is to educate and empower our patients. We will provide you with a different framework, one that seeks to uncover the root source of your problems, not just give you medicines or supplements to mask the symptoms. If your list of medications and supplements are overwhelming, our goal is to get your body functioning where it needs to be, to hopefully come off some, if not all, of those once we have repleted your system. Our belief is that symptoms and illness occur when the amount of toxins our body is exposed to is greater than its capacity to clear them. We use multiple modalities to get the body to help itself and do the work it was designed to do innately.
We believe that there are five foundations that lead to optimal health: nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental health, and our ability to detox. We refer to this as our ‘Wellness Bubble’. When one of the pillars falls, the domino effect can result. When we nurture these five foundations, we are able to change the way our genes are expressed, ultimately preventing and treating disease.
