Functional Medicine

At our clinic, we offer a patient-centered approach to healthcare through functional medicine.

Functional medicine is a science-based approach to care that seeks to find and address the root cause of health issues, rather than treating and quieting symptoms. By treating the underlying cause, we can help prevent relapse and promote long-term health and wellness.

Functional medicine aims to optimize overall health and wellness by focusing on lifestyle – like nutrition and stress management. Genetic tests help clarify epigenetic triggers so we can adjust lifestyle to maximize your health.. Research shows we can achieve better health outcomes, such as improved energy levels, enhanced mental clarity, and reduced reliance on medications when we focus on lifestyle.

We use lab information to understand your body's biome and identify biomarkers that help us choose the right supplements and treatments for you.

And who doesn’t like a good report? Getting good labwork results can be a major motivator as you move forward on your health & wellness journey..

Work with Gigi Khalsa to create a personalized plan that fits your unique needs and lifestyle, empowering you to take control of your health and well-being. Whether you are looking to address chronic health issues, optimize your nutrition, or simply feel better in your body, our functional medicine services can help you achieve your goals.



Herbal medicine

We take a holistic approach to healthcare by offering a range of herbal medicine options. Dr. Gigi, our licensed acupuncture physician, specializes in Chinese herbal medicine, which is a sophisticated system that uses ingredients in combinations or formulas to treat a wide variety of health conditions. Chinese herbal medicine formulas typically contain 6 to 20 ingredients that are carefully chosen to work synergistically. These ingredients come from the animal, mineral, and plant kingdoms, including roots, barks, fruits, berries, twigs, stems, leaves, and flowers. We offer our patients Chinese herbal formulas in various forms, including granules that are dissolved in hot water and drunk as a tea, as bulk herbs, tinctures, or pills.

In addition to Chinese herbal medicine, Dr. Gigi has extensive experience with a range of botanical products native to Tibet, Europe, and North & South Americas. We make regionally grown and harvested western herbs available to our patients as well. Many are familiar substances, and easy to incorporate into our daily lives. As with Chinese herbal medicine, Western herbs come from various parts of plants, such as the root, bark or flower. Our western herb collection includes wild-harvested and organic bulk teas, tinctures, salves, and vinegars.

Dr. Gigi can work with you to create a personalized herbal medicine plan that incorporates both Asian and Western herbalism to address your unique health concerns.

Our herbal supplements and botanical products are lab-tested to assure they are free from harmful additives, preservatives, and fillers.

At our clinic, we believe that herbal medicine can be an essential part of achieving optimal health and well-being. We are committed to empowering our patients with the knowledge and tools they need to take control of their health.



Lab Tests

Our clinic offers a range of lab tests that can provide valuable insights into the underlying causes of health issues, allowing us to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs. From comprehensive blood panels to specialized testing for food sensitivities, hormones, and more, our lab tests can help uncover imbalances and deficiencies that may be contributing to chronic health problems.

Our functional medicine approach emphasizes the importance of addressing the root causes of symptoms, rather than simply managing them with medication. Lab testing is an essential tool in this process, allowing us to gather information about a patient's unique biochemistry, nutritional status, and hormonal balance and even genetics. With this information, we can personalize your treatment plan and help you stay motivated.

We offer a wide variety of lab tests, including comprehensive blood panels, hormone analysis, food sensitivity testing, stool analysis, and genetic markers. Each test is carefully selected based on the individual needs of the patient. We work closely with leading labs to ensure accurate and timely results. Once the results are in, we review them with the patient and develop a personalized Care Plan that may include nutritional supplements, dietary changes, and other therapies designed to restore balance and promote optimal health.

At our clinic, we believe that lab testing is an essential tool in the journey towards optimal health and well-being. Whether you are struggling with chronic health issues, or simply looking to optimize your health, our lab tests can help uncover the underlying causes of your symptoms, allowing us to develop a targeted treatment plan that is tailored to your unique needs.


Nutritional Supplements

We offer our patients high-quality nutritional supplements to support their health and achieve their health goals. Our supplements are carefully selected based on lab test results and individual patient needs. We provide professional quality supplements that are not available in stores, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible products to address their specific health concerns.

Using nutritional supplements as part of your health plan can be essential to maintaining optimal health. Often, it can be difficult to get all the nutrients your body needs from diet alone, and supplements can help fill in the gaps. Additionally, nutritional supplements can be used to address specific health concerns, such as nutrient deficiencies or inflammation.

At our clinic, we believe in the importance of using only what you need when it comes to supplements. Our lab tests take the guesswork out of nutritional supplementation by identifying exactly which nutrients are deficient or imbalanced in your body. By providing personalized supplement recommendations based on these test results, we can help our patients avoid wasting money on unnecessary supplements or taking too much of certain nutrients.

Our supplements are of the highest quality, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible products for their health. We also offer the convenience of home delivery, so our patients can easily integrate their supplements into their daily routine without any additional hassle.

By using lab tests to guide our supplement recommendations, we can provide our patients with a personalized approach to functional nutrition that is tailored to their unique needs.


Holistic Nutrition &
Meal Planning

At our clinic, we believe in the power of nourishing whole foods to promote overall health, manage chronic conditions, and boost performancy and energy levels. I view Food as Medicine and offer a holistic nutrition & meal planning program to help our patients seamlessly incorporate targeted nutrition into their lives.

Functional nutrition is a vital aspect of attaining optimal health, and our digital meal planning tool is designed to support our patients in this journey. With access to thousands of healthy recipes, our patients receive a new customizable menu each week, tailored to their dietary preferences, intolerances, and goals. (The planner even creates your shopping list based from the menu.) Lab tests can often offer helpful information as we select approaches that work with your unique physiology and history.

More than just providing recipes, what matters most is empowering you with the confidence and skills to prepare nourishing meals that cater to your unique body. Join my nutrition and cooking workshops, where I'll guide you in unlocking the therapeutic potential of food and seamlessly integrating functional nutrition into your daily life. Regardless of whether you're managing chronic conditions, looking to boost energy levels, or aiming to eat for mental & emotional balance, our holistic approach, combining lab work, nutrition guidance, and meal planning, is here to support you in achieving your goals.

Dr. Gigi relies on the use of lab test data to create highly personalized wellness plans tailored to an individual’s unique characteristics. Lab tests play a pivotal role in understanding an individual’s health status and guiding targeted interventions. The importance of the currency (timeliness) of lab data cannot be overstated, as it directly impacts treatment and outcomes.

1. Diagnostic Insights: Lab tests provide valuable diagnostic information about a person’s current health status. This data can uncover existing health issues, such as nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, or metabolic abnormalities. It serves as the foundation for developing a personalized wellness plan.

2. Establishing Baseline Data: Lab tests establish a baseline of an individual’s health markers, serving as a reference point for future comparisons. This baseline helps healthcare providers track changes over time and assess the effectiveness of interventions. Without up-to-date data, accurate monitoring becomes challenging.

3. Personalized Recommendations: Lab results enable healthcare providers to make tailored recommendations for diet, exercise, supplements, and other lifestyle modifications. These recommendations are based on the individual’s unique biomarkers, ensuring that interventions align with their specific needs.

4. Disease Risk Assessment: Some lab tests assess an individual’s risk of developing certain health conditions in the future. Timely data allows for proactive measures to prevent or mitigate these risks, improving long-term health outcomes.

5. Treatment Monitoring: For individuals already undergoing treatment, lab data is essential for monitoring treatment efficacy. It provides insights into how the body responds to interventions, facilitating real-time adjustments to treatment plans when necessary.

Having up-to-date lab test data is integral to Precision Wellness. It ensures that we can make informed, timely, and personalized recommendations and interventions. Up-to-date data allows for more accurate assessments, treatment adjustments, and improved overall health outcomes.
