I wanted to take a moment to introduce our newest team member to Mint Health, Renee Beyer Boudreaux FNP- IFMCP. Renee is truly an amazing woman, and below she shares her story and journey with us, so get ready to be inspired! Over the upcoming weeks, we each, as providers, want to share with you our stories of how Functional Medicine has changed our lives profoundly (as that is why we work so diligently to do what we do in the Functional Medicine practice at Mint Health!), as well as a little more about what Functional Medicine really is (there are many misconceptions out there!). We know many of you have stories that overlap with our own navigating this lovely but imperfect life! We want you to know that we are right here with you (regular people, real life, as well as your diligent health care team!). More than anything, we want you to know what is possible when you have the right tools and the right inspiration.
Renee is a Family Nurse Practitioner who is certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), just like me. We both chose IFM to further our health knowledge, because IFM is truly the global leader in promoting change in how we think about wellness versus illness. You can check them out more here https://ifm.org/
to get a glimpse of what the hype is all about.
Renee is experienced in addressing autoimmune conditions and immune dysfunctions, gut imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, food intolerances, detox, genetics, eczema, chronic illness like obesity and diabetes and heart disease, fibromyalgia, developmental delays and spectrum disorders in children, ADHD/ADD, hormone imbalances for women and men, mood disorders, dementia, and more. With her extensive background, she is very experienced in working with not only women, but also children and men! This is one reason she is such a great new asset to us at Mint Health!
As our team grows, we look forward to being able to spend even more time with you in the Functional Medicine area of Mint Health. We truly value the extra time and tools that this approach allows for us in being able to go beyond what sometimes seems impossible (as you’ll see in Renee’s story below)! We know and experience daily that caring for others is a huge responsibility and a privilege, so we always welcome your feedback and what each of you teach us every single day.
