An integrative approach
to natural healing.
Illness is caused from imbalance usually brought on
by food, thoughts and past trauma. To treat illness we
need to address all of these factors and free ourselves
from the weight of past accumulations.
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Nearly every day, people ask me, “What is functional medicine?”
So I decided to put my thoughts into writing and explain
why I value functional medicine, what it is,
and what types of conditions it commonly treats.

What My Patients Say
I was struggling with hormonal and emotional fluctuations. I’m a yoga teacher in very good shape, and I eat well. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong! My cycle and moods were all over the place! Dr. Sommer White examined my diet, environment, and emotional well-being. Dr. White gave me the tools to get my body back in order and feel as though I’m in control again. My cycle comes on time every month, and my moods are more stable. Thanks Dr. White for helping me find a natural way to heal my body and to feel really great again!
Dr. White has helped me with many medical problems when no one else could. I had suffered from painful menstrual cycles for years, and I was at the point where my OB/GYN wanted to do surgery to correct the problem. I saw Dr. White, and she recommended a few dietary suggestions. After following her recommendations, my next cycle was pain free. She saved me from having surgery! Dr. White is now the first person I consult whenever something isn’t right with my body. She digs deep to fully understand my condition and then prescribes a customized plan. You can’t find what she provides from the internet or in books. Her knowledge and intuition set her apart.
My 9 year-old was diagnosed with ADHD and ASD in the summer of 2015. My husband and I were interested in a holistic approach without using medications. Dr. White looked at my child’s environment and how he was nourishing his body. She saw things in his diet that were contributing to his condition that I couldn’t see. We implemented the dietary recommendations, and did specialized testing which allowed us to tailor his supplements. After working with Dr. White for over a year, my son is a completely different child. He is much calmer and kinder. He notices things around him whereas before he was very self-absorbed. He has friends at school and is able to maintain those friendships because he’s not as impulsive as he once was. I fully attribute the speed of his progress to the way he eats and the changes that were implemented based on Dr. White’s recommendations. She knows the ins and outs of medicine as well as how diet contributes to overall health. Words can't fully express my gratitude for Dr. White and her practice.
After living with Crohn’s Disease for 20 years, I had accepted that my health and well being “status quo” was feeling fair to not great. Since my diagnosis in 1997, I have taken medications for the illness and in the last few years I started taking immunosuppressant medications. With the support of Dr. Sommer White, I have successfully been able to stop taking those immunosuppressant medications and start to heal my body with supplements and food. Under the care of Dr. White, I feel better than I have in decades. It has truly been a gift to work with a provider who is teaching me how to heal my body and use food as medicine. I highly recommend Dr. White’s services.
