Welcome to Path to Health and Healing
Hi there, my name is Laura Dankof and I am a functional medicine nurse practitioner. I help women to heal their guts and balance their hormones so that they can reclaim their health and vitality by using my L. A. S. approach (Listen.Advise.Support).
You deserve to be heard and have your symptoms validated!
I know that finding a practitioner that can help you get to the root cause can be a struggle and very frustrating. I know this because my journey into functional and natural medicine began when I experienced the shortcomings within the conventional health care model when it came to my youngest daughter’s health challenges and then my own. This set me on a crusade to help others. I have since helped thousands of women just like you get to the root cause of their digestive issues, hormone imbalances and more.
If you are ready to take the necessary steps to reclaiming your health and vitality, let me help you.
Are you suffering from digestive issues such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or heartburn? Do you lack the energy to do the things you want to do? Maybe you suffer from hormone imbalances. Do you have Hashimoto’s, premenstrual or menopausal symptoms that are leaving you fat, fatigued, irritable, sleep deprived and suffering from hot flashes? Having any one of these condition can keep you from enjoying life the way you want to enjoy life.
What is even more frustrating is when you go to your health practitioner and you are told everything is fine when you don’t feel fine. Time and time again you walk away with no understanding why you feel the way you do or how to resolve the issue. You feel like no one is listening. So you continue to feel afraid to go out to dinner with friends or family fearing you are going to suffer with gut issues for the next 3 days. You continue to feel exhausted and feel like you are missing out on things. You continue to see your work and home life suffer because you can’t focus or think clearly. If this sounds like you, isn't it time you had answers?
Path to Health and Healing takes a Functional Medicine approach in order to get to the root cause and help you to restore balance. You have a say in your health. By partnering with us, together we will work to achieve your health goals. Your body systems do not work in unison, but collectively work in concert with the whole. Therefore, Laura takes a whole body approach to help to identify the root causes of illness and identify biochemical imbalances throughout the body. Too often, conventional medicine addresses only the symptoms of conditions. By asking "WHY" things happen, together we can get to "HOW" to treat YOU as an individual and not just your symptoms or diagnosis. The first step is Listening to your story. Once Laura has heard your story, she will Advise you on the next steps you can take towards reaching your health goal and Support you in seeing your health vision become a reality.
"If you are looking for a medical partner that really listens, then Laura Dankof is your #1 choice. I have never felt rushed and she asks good questions to help get to the bottom of my issue. She discussed alternative ideas and I'm happy with what treatment techniques we landed on. I am made to feel comfortable, where I can share information that was never able to share with other medical practitioners, and didn't feel judged. Five stars out of five!" Teri
"I approached Laura when I was looking for a natural therapy and was in considerable pain and not having success with regular medical doctors. She diagnosed my Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, as well as a host of other issues like MTHFR and leaky gut. Laura made me feel understood! That there really is something going on even if the conventional system didn't understand. She allowed me to explain how i was feeling and what didn't seem or feel right in my body. We worked through each challenge. I never felt stupid. Laura provided testing and resources to get more information on my condition along with options for treatment. She made recommendations for alternative therapies. Who new I needed sauna to help me properly detox! I am grateful for her patience, support, knowledge and listening skills!" Eileen
