Emily Jensen, RN, IFMCP, INHC

Emily is a Registered Nurse (RN), Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Certified Integrative Health & Nutrition Coach providing individualized health coaching services that are rooted in science-supported, lifestyle and behavior modification techniques. Working as a team, Emily helps clients achieve their health goals and improve their quality of life from the inside out. 

 

Emily began her career in 2005 as a Registered Nurse. Throughout her many years in nursing, Emily noticed that prevention of illness was a minor focus - if not ignored entirely - in the hospitals and clinics where she worked. Patients had minimal time with doctors and were seldom asked about their diet, lifestyle or family history. She saw patients come and go, but rarely did they learn how to take charge of their health and wellness. It's not that they didn't care, but Emily couldn't shake the feeling that she and her colleagues were failing their patients. Emily was determined to bridge this gap in healthcare. 

In the years that followed, Emily dedicated herself to studying the research and application of Functional Medicine. With this renewed worldview of health and wellness, Emily became a Certified Practitioner in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), and a Board Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition - both renowned for their rigorous, scientific and comprehensive programs. 

 

Using evidenced-informed and personalized lifestyle and behavioral modification modalities, Emily helps clients of all ages and backgrounds achieve their health goals and live happier, more fulfilling lives.​

What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine emphasizes optimal healing and vitality, not merely relieving symptoms through quick fixes. 

 

Using a multitude of evidence-based modalities, Functional Medicine seeks to uncover and resolve the root causes of symptoms and disease. It also promotes prevention of disease through modifiable lifestyle factors and other methods. 

Functional Medicine does not fall into any one category of healthcare. It may combine protocols from conventional (i.e. pharmaceuticals) and naturopathic medicine (herbal remedies), if that is what the patient needs or desires.

It considers the unique individual by examining biochemical individuality and exploring the interconnectedness of the body's different systems (for ex, brain + gut connection).

In doing so, Functional Medicine uses personalized treatment plans created through a partnership between the patient and their provider(s).
