Dr. Sarah Williams is passionate about her work in Nutrigenomics, Genomics, Functional, and Homeopathic Medicine. As a Chiropractor she knows the importance of nerve function in maintaining good health. Other important aspects of health are nutrition, eating habits, exercise, emotional health, and spirituality. Eighty percent of the health conditions we face today are from lifestyle choices.
The genomic revolution has arrived. It is helping move the focus of clinical practice toward improving assessment, treatment, and prevention of complex and chronic disease through a deeper understanding of each individuals unique combination of genetics, environment and lifestyle.
As a Functional Medicine practitioner, Dr. Williams' practice focuses on personalized healthcare to prevent and find the underlying causes of disease, not just symptoms. She believes the entire "patient story" needs to be heard and understood in order to truly help the patient. With the addition of nutrigenomics, and genomics to her practice there can be an even greater focus on targeted, individual patient care.
Dr. Williams offers testing, from CLIA certified lab facilities, to assess nutritional status, nutrigenomics, pharmacogenomics, WGS (whole genome sequencing), digestive function, allergies, gluten reactivity and Celiac Disease. Gluten sensitivity is 6x more prevalent than Celiac Disease.
Functional medicine reflects a systems biology approach which involves an analysis of how
all components of the human biological system interact functionally with the environment over time.
Functional medicine, in agreement with modern medicine, holds that the entire "patient story" needs
to be heard and understood in context in order to truly help the patient.
"My impression upon consulting Dr. Williams was that, for the first time, I was talking with someone who actually practices medicine. Her practice is to understand and treat causes, not just treat symptoms. For fifty years I have had moderate to severe gastric and related issues. It now appears that they were all caused by a combination of food allergies that went undiagnosed and the aftermath of pharmaceuticals. After three weeks I told my wife that I was just about at the stage of saying that I never knew that the way I now feel (pain and symptom free) is the way one is supposed to feel."
