Are you looking for a solution to a health problem that modern medicine has been unable to address? You are not alone. Many of our patients suffer from conditions that the medical field has tried to stick a bandaid on with the help of antibiotics, medicines, and more. While these things are beneficial, you might be frustrated that the root of your condition isn’t being addressed. At our clinic, we strive to find the basis of your symptoms and help you create a plan to eradicate the source and get healthier every day. Our methods might include modern medicine, herbs, and holistic medicine, or lifestyle changes. We believe it takes making whole body changes to heal your entire body.


Functional medicine is a form of medicine that seeks to identify and address the root of a health problem rather than treat the symptoms. The primary goal of functional medicine is to pursue total body wellness through holistic care. Dr. Washatka combines her background in conventional medicine and extensive training in practical and holistic medicine to provide a unique approach to healthcare.


Functional medicine combines conventional medicine, homeopathy, herbal, nutrition, and applied kinesiology to individualize a patient’s treatment plan. It looks at the entire person– chemically, physically, structurally, emotionally, and spiritually, and uses every part of the patient’s life (birth, childhood, trauma, lifestyle) to understand their physiology. This approach is step by step since bodies are complex. Dr. Washatka will help you comprehend your entire individualized healing journey: what you eat and drink, your lifestyle, exercise, and sleeping habits. Let our clinic help guide you to better health.
