Certified Functional Medicine Coach,
Developed her holistic toolbox while studying as an herbalist’s apprentice, working as a chiropractic assistant, and being a nutritional supplementation consultant at a regional store. She would refine her knowledge base by becoming a passionate learner of herbology (both medicinal and culinary), fermented foods, and back to her roots of organic gardening.

What is Functional Medicine?
Welcome to Wholestic Nutrition and congratulations on taking this important step to optimal health! We are honored to be part of your healing journey. Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating healing modalities, not separating them. We harness the power of functional medicine to heal the unified system of your body. As a Functional Medicine practice, we work with you to identify and address the root causes of your health symptoms so that you can reach your wellness goals.
The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that healing is an act of integration, not separation.
Our practice is unique in the Functional Medicine space because of our boutique approach. Instead of addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to address the common issues that affect the unified system of your body.
Since the founding of his practice, Dr. Sentissi and our team have helped clients heal from a variety of challenging health concerns.
No matter where you are in your healing journey, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find effective solutions that will empower your lifelong health.
Why Wholestic Nutrition?
Wholestic Nutrition specializes in root cause resolution of chronic conditions, such as gastrointestinal ailments, autoimmune conditions, and weight gain using an integrative functional medicine approach. We treat you as an individual capable of healing, not as a disease or number.
Our Principles as a Functional Medicine Practitioner
- Practitioners prioritize quality over quantity with their clients. A practitioner will only make recommendations after listening carefully to a client’s history, documenting their personal choices and health history.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritized over wait-and-see approaches.
- Prioritization is placed on utilizing the most modern and advanced assessment and healing modalities available.
- Clients are not made to feel that they have taken a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encourage to take an active role in improving how they feel.
We offer multiple programs to assist you on your healing journey
Wholestic Nutrition’s Customized Programs are designed to address the root cause of your symptoms and understand the underlying mechanism of your condition.
Every program begins with a 90-minute new client session and thorough health history evaluation.
Unlike your typical healthcare appointment which usually lasts only 7-10 minutes, this one and a half hour initial session allows us to go deep into your health history, lifestyle, health concerns, goals and expectations.
From there, your practitioner will recommend the appropriate assessment tests and begin crafting a customized wellness program to address your unique health concerns.
