Conditions we treat
Dr. Lenz can help guide you on your path to health using the principles and tools of Functional Medicine. She works with patients with a wide range of health concerns as well as a desire for optimal healthy aging.
Some of the conditions she focuses on are:
Hormone Imbalances (including adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones)
Digestive Problems and Gastrointestinal Health
Cardiovascular Risk Assessment and Reduction
Cancer Risk Assessment and Reduction
Metabolic Problems (weight, blood sugar,diabetes)
Fatigue, low energy and poor sleep
Patients who do best under her care are:
*Highly motivated and willing to play an active role in their healing process
*Don’t want to rely on unnecessary drugs and medical intervention for the rest of their lives
*Are interested in discovering the underlying cause of their problems, rather than just suppressing symptoms
*Are willing to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to support health and well-being
Dr. Lenz’s roles can be thought of as that of both a detective and teacher. She focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of an illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms. Like all detectives, she uses a variety of tools in her investigations, including , detailed questionnaires, a thorough medical history and examination, and comprehensive laboratory tests (blood, urine, stool and saliva testing). She then will instruct you in the use of nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, supplements, stress management, detoxification, lifestyle changes, and—in some cases and only when necessary—prescription medications, to eliminate triggers and restore proper function and balance.
