“When many demands compete for attention or when we are tired, we often fall into rote patterns of emotion and behavior. We eat according to the clock, stay up too late, and react without thinking. We can become trapped in our minds or indulge in immediate gratification too often. A lack of self-awareness can lead to poor decisions, poor health, and poor relationships. Living on autopilot is a coping mechanism, yet conscious choices and decisions can dramatically improve your health and wellbeing.
Mindfulness practices offer tools to anchor yourself in the present, and can increase self-awareness. You can grow your ability to be self-aware and mindful—and every step you take will improve your health and happiness.’

Our Functional Health Team works with clients to discover their default coping mechanisms, and find the mindfulness practice that will allow them to form new habit patterns. This can include:
I signed up for the 3 month FRESH Integrative Medicine Program to see Dr. Robert Graham, Michelle Miller, and Julie Graham. It’s been a great program so far. It gives me some accountability, I’ve tried different health programs in the past, but I never stay motivated enough to see it all the way through. It has helped me jump-start my life to develop better habits.
“After seeing Michelle for nutrition for a few months, we did a second blood test, and it was great to see such positive results in such a short time.”
