Why Trillium Functional Medicine?
The Trillium plant is native to the Pacific Northwest forests. It is an indicator species in our local forests. If Trillium are present in the forest, then the local environment is likely very healthy, one that supports the ecosystem.
Like the trillium in the forest, human health and vitality can only be achieved in conjunction with a healthy environment. Whether it be chronic stress, poor nutrition, lack of movement, toxins, chemical exposures, or genetic predisposition or a combination of some or all of the above, an individual’s health becomes compromised.
At Trillium Functional Medicine, we strive to examine all the factors which might impact health. We work together with you to create healthy internal and external environments which, like the Trillium plant, enable the health and vitality of an individual.
