"You don't need healthcare to get healthy."
Dr. William Davis
Welcome to your health journey
Valerie Burgess M.D.
I am a physician, trained in Family Medicine. I left conventional medicine after being frustrated at the “system” that healthcare has become, both for the patient and the doctor. Since then, I have spent my time investigating things that actually heal the body. Many of these ideas and concepts fall under the areas of Integrative and Functional Medicine. The premise of Functional Medicine, which I agree most closely with, is that when body systems are out of balance then the body has symptoms. Finding the root cause of these imbalances and correcting them - through dietary changes, getting the correct gut microbes, dealing with emotional/spiritual issues, eliminating toxins correctly - then relieves all the downstream symptoms. The body will heal itself if given the correct tools and environment. I have a passion for helping people learn these concepts for themselves and taking back control of their own health. This website is a compilation of resources dedicated to those seeking a new direction in their health journey. While I no longer manage specific health conditions, I provide personalized wellness plans that focus on cellular healing and detox, as well as offer a variety of online classes.
