A Good Fit?

At Shine Functional Health, we are all about root cause resolution… digging deep into what causes your disease. Start your journey to health today with our unique functional and lifestyle medicine program.

Conditions Treated

Functional Medicine is a new approach to addressing complex medical problems. It is often described as ‘root cause medicine’ – as it searches for your unique reason for your symptoms, whatever they may be. Conventional medicine is disease-oriented, where treatment plans are formulated based on the diagnosis, and is the same for every person with that same diagnosis. 

 Functional Medicine is patient-oriented, taking into account the unique biochemical individuality of every patient. Utilizing cutting edge diagnostic tests, Functional Medicine finds the underlying cause of disease and address these problems with a holistic plan to prevent or reverse chronic disease. We commonly treat the following conditions:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Celiac Disease
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • PMS
  • PCOS
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Pre-Diabetes, Diabetes
  • AutoImmune Diseases
  • Adrenal Dysfunction
  • Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity
  • Headaches, Migraines
  • Anxiety, Depression, Stress
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Chronic Fatigue

At Shine Functional Health,  you will have the best of both worlds. Dr. Lechner is not only  board certified in both Family and Obesity Medicine, she also is a certified Functional Medicine physician through the Institute of Functional Medicine.  This extensive education allows Dr. Lechner to use not only the best of conventional medicine but also the newest, evidence-based alternative diagnostic and treatment modalities. 

You additionally have the support of a clinical nutritionist to ensure the fastest return back to health and the most complete system of care.

Our integrative medicine approach focuses on:

  • Using a variety of treatment modalities, using food as medicine along with state of the art testing and evidence based protocols.
  • Focusing holistically on all the areas that impact your health… including sleep, emotional health, stress and exercise.
  • Focusing on optimal health, based on your unique biological needs, not just the absence of symptoms or disease.
  • Teaching patients how to take an active role in health creation, so that they can heal and/or keep chronic illness at bay. Our goal is to teach you how to take care of you – so you don’t need us!
  • Acknowledging the multi-factorial nature of complex causes of illness, the body’s many systems do not work in isolation of each other. Dr Lechner’s training in functional medicine gives her the ability to connect how the different systems are interacting, and restore balance.
  • Using natural, non-toxic therapies, as much as possible, harnessing the body’s amazing ability to heal itself.
