About Bridget Bergens
OTR/L, ABAAHP, CPHWC, CFSP – Integrative Wholelistic Anti-Aging Health Practitioner
As a Board Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Certified Professional Health and Wellness Coach, Certified Food and Spirit Practitioner and Registered, Licensed Occupational Therapist…
I have a practice that is focused on a Wellness- Based approach of Functional Medicine. I will help you find answers and solutions to the causes of your illness and nutritional imbalances that are triggering your fatigue, brain fog, pain, poor sleep, poor digestion, and inflammation. Functional Medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach to healthcare that looks beyond just treating symptoms but rather identifying why illness occurs.
My focus is addressing the root cause of your issues with the end goal to restore your health.
Using cutting edge lab testing and customizing the needed interventions I focus on your specific needs as an individual. I use diet, lifestyle changes and/or natural supplements to restore balance in the body. I have found most illness begin in the gut.
Today most people choose a diet and lifestyle that suppresses their good gut microbes and increases the growth of bad gut microbes. This loss of gut bacteria balance eventually throws off the wellness balance of your whole body causing you to feel ill. A healthy gut contains healthy bacteria and immune cells that prevent overgrowth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. A healthy gut communicates with the brain through nerves and hormones, which is important to maintain general health and well-being.
