    Integrated Approach

    to do more than manage symptoms – to make you well.


    At Optimal Health and Wellness, Julie offers testing and treatment options that not only address your condition, but also answer the question Why do I have this? She listens, assesses and puts together a plan just for you, to improve the balance and function of your body’s systems, and lead you to improved health and optimal wellness.

    Root Cause

    Julie digs deep to reveal the root cause of your symptoms.
    Knowing what’s causing you to feel bad will help guide her treatment plan for making you feel your best.

    The Key Three

    Many conditions marked as “female issues” – from mood swings to osteoporosis – can be due to breakdown in your body’s hormonal, digestive or detoxification systems.
    Julie specializes in restoring these three
    key systems.

    Whole Health Testing

    Julie relies on a wide range of medical tests to tell how your body’s systems are functioning – including blood and hormone panels, adrenal assessments, stool cultures, food-sensitivity testing and testing your detoxification pathways.

    Optimal Wellbeing

    is the objective – you deserve nothing less.
