Functional medicine is changing the face of medicine in Lafayette.
At Nouriche, we practice integrative medicine, combining elements of traditional internal medicine and functional medicine. Both Dr. Cobb and Jennifer Menard-Piker, PA-C are students of The Institute for Functional Medicine. They are actively working on the highest level certification offered and regularly attend conferences and seminars to keep up with the latest in functional medicine.
Our weight loss patients start with an appointment with the doctor or one of our PAs for a check up to determine the underlying causes of their weight gain. The program is set up in six week blocks which include all supplemental weight loss food needed and weekly weigh ins and support meetings.
Vitamin deficiency can cause a lot of health problems including include hair loss, depression, forgetfulness, and fatigue. We use vitamin assessment and testing to determine if you are suffering from any vitamin deficiencies. If you are experiencing any unusual symptoms that you think may be linked to vitamin deficiency, schedule a medical appointment at Nouriche for a vitamin assessment. We can help you correct vitamin deficiencies through supplementation and dietary change and order vitamin testing if deemed necessary by our medical team.
IV administration of nutrients can achieve blood concentrations not obtainable with oral (pills or liquid), or even intramuscular (IM) administration. For example, an IV of Vitamin C can raise the blood levels 50 – 100 times higher than what a person can do taking it orally.
