Meet Jenny Andrade

Nurse Practitioner

Like many others who have a calling to help those in need, I was inspired to be a nurse and help ease the suffering in the world. During my time as a bedside nurse, I worked in the intensive care unit, providing care to individuals who were critically ill with potentially life-threatening conditions. After a while, I noticed many patients with the same diagnoses would come back to the hospital time and time again. This had me thinking about how I could help them BEFORE they were in the intensive care unit. Fortunately, many of these diseases are preventable, which led me to return to school to become a nurse practitioner.

After obtaining my master's degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner, I thought NOW I would be able to make a difference. However, after working for several years in conventional medicine, I still didn't feel as though I was TRULY helping people. I wanted individuals to obtain an optimum level of wellness, and that was not possible in the conventional model I was working in.

Being a lifetime learner (and let's be honest, not satisfied with my job) I found functional medicine. Functional medicine allows me to discover the true root cause of what is causing someone's symptoms or disease instead of using medication to hide the symptoms. I now blend functional medicine with conventional medicine and can provide patients with more comprehensive care. I now focus on the WHOLE person, and not just their symptoms or disease.

Why Naturopathy

Why Functional Medicine?

It can help with

Digestion

Digestion can be impacted by a myriad of dynamics in the body. Functional medicine focuses on the cause of digestive distress instead of only focusing on symptoms. 

Fatigue

Chronic fatigue can be caused by several different factors. The functional medicine approach finds your specific reason and guides us how to get you feeling fantastic.

Detoxification

We must get rid of the toxins we consume through food, personal hygiene products, and normal cellular waste. Functional medicine helps to optimize the detox pathways for better excretion. 

Women's Health

Women are a delicate balance of hormones. When hormones are not in the correct balance you can have symptoms of PMS, PCOS and infertility. This approach gets to the root cause of the problem to correct the imbalance.

Weight Loss

Weight is a symptom, not a diagnosis itself. Functional medicine gets to the root cause of your weight gain.

Stress

Stress is not only outside influences but also stress on a cellular level. Functional medicine allows us to combat stress to optimize wellness.
