Holistic Medicine For Gut & Brain + Body & Mind
Programs To Transform Your Health So You Can Live With The Freedom Of Wellness & Resilience
Partnering With Patients
I help people turn their brains and health back on by healing root cause metabolic problems (like overlooked inflammatory triggers, stealth infections, and nutritional deficiencies) combined with holistic neuroscience so you can heal the cause of what is preventing you from being well.
Using the synergy of holistic medicine, functional medicine testing, neuroscience, and mind-body medicine I partner with patients to heal the gut-brain connection (and everything in between). This approach focuses on investigating and identifying the root cause of your health problems so we can remove obstacles to healing and correct imbalances, allowing dysfunctional systems to heal.
I work with patients seeking help for digestive problems, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, brain fog, memory problems, and autoimmune-neurological conditions. The first thing we do is set the diagnosis aside and focus on you and your story so we can unravel the triggers and events that derailed your health. Then we create a personalized plan to heal your root causes, release toxicity, and nourish your body so you can recreate wellness and build your resiliency.

When modern medicine failed me, Dr. Sara came to the rescue! Her tests, diagnosis, and treatment were 100% accurate. I was completely healed and fully restored in 6 months.

Could not be happier. Possibly the best decision I've ever made.
I have had such a positive experience working with Dr. Sara. She recommended a series of lab tests that helped me find my root cause, and then started me on a regime of supplements to start the cleansing and healing. We also changed my thyroid medicine, and I have seen huge improvements with energy and clarity. Thank you Dr. Sara DeFrancesco!
