BERMAN HEALTH AND WELLNESS - WHO ARE WE?
Berman Health and Wellness is a Functional Medicine and Wellness practice that helps individuals reach their goal weight and improve their gut health while avoiding needless medications and achieving the highest quality of life imaginable! Berman Health and Wellness specializes in treating problems and not just the symptoms. We look at the body from the inside-out to assess how we are responding to blood sugar levels, hormone levels, vitamin levels, and gut health.
Did you know that your GUT (Mouth, Esophagus, Stomach, Intestines) is truly your second brain?! Your gut is the start of many diagnoses and Autoimmune conditions out there. Details on this will be saved for another blog, but this is incredibly important if you are going to treat problems and fix problems to feel better indefinitely.
TREAT PROBLEMS, NOT SYMPTOMS
Diving deep into a person’s metabolism and performing an internal analysis is vital to identify the cause of various symptoms:
Another Did You Know (or two)....
Okay, one more
Berman Health and Wellness is here to help you reach your goals and achieve the highest quality of life imaginable which can be done by evaluating you as an individual, looking at your body from the inside-out, and treating you in an individualized, personalized, program with proper meal planning, macronutrient recommendations (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats), supplement recommendations and more.
We work with individuals one-on-one to develop a personalized meal plan based on the right types of foods, the right amounts of foods, and the right supplementations based on their needs. We monitor their blood work analysis throughout the wellness journey. The key to success is knowledge - what is best for your body specifically.
THE FACE OF BERMAN HEALTH AND WELLNESS
I am Jenni Berman, Physician Assistant-Certified. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Specialist, and Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor. I specialized in Functional Medicine years ago after working with and training under an Institute of Functional Medicine Doctor, Dr. Caroline Cederquist.
I developed a passion for Functional Medicine and Gut Health after going through my own long, painful, journey of gut issues which led to systemic (full body) side effects. You can read the longer version of my story in my book, The Berman Way - Treating the Inside Out. To save some time here, it was quite a journey with tons of medications, doctors, and hospital visits with no answers. Finally, we got the answer and it came down to my gut… food sensitivities, and vitamin deficiencies. After my wonderful husband, Jake Berman, DPT, PT, helped to identify the cause and get me on the right track to a healthy lifestyle again, we knew that we had to practice medicine differently. Jake and I knew that we did not want to be part of corporate medicine that just hands out pills and prescriptions, runs the mill, and moves on to the next patient. We have to be different. We have to actually treat the patients. We have to identify problems and fix problems, not just treat symptoms. After graduating with a Physician Assistant degree I first started out in Pediatric Orthopedic Medicine. I loved it. I was helping little kids. It was fun. It wasn’t my passion, though. My passion and my heart were in Functional Medicine. I was lucky? grateful? or whatever the term might be, enough to land the position with Dr. Caroline Cederquist and it changed my career, but even more, my life. I found the niche where I could actually do what I promised - to treat the individual and treat the problem.
Through research, Berman Health and Wellness continues to evolve and reach more individuals. Knowledge is Key.
