Philadelphia, PA – Dr. Sy Powell is a nutrition coach and the founder of Balance to Bloom, where she empowers women to achieve vibrant health.
Prior to launching Balance to Bloom, Dr. Powell had been a traditional gynecologist struggling with her own health issues, when she realized that she could no longer look to conventional medicine for help.
That’s when Dr. Powell discovered Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine separates acute care issues from chronic diseases that plague the majority of the population, like obesity, hypertension, diabetes. It looks for the cause of diseases and allows the body to use its own natural, innate ability to heal. Today, Dr. Powell is a conventional medicine doctor second and a functional medicine doctor first.
“In medical school, nutrition is not treated as the cornerstone of health that it is,” says Dr. Powell. “My understanding now is that food is medicine.”
Indeed, digestive health is health: what we put into our body determines our experience. When it comes to interventions to improve our health, they must be customized to each person’s unique needs. Our body is not a bank; it’s a complex chemistry lab. All calories don't elicit the same hormonal response.
Of course, health isn't just about the physical body. It's about body, mind, and spirit. Through a 12-week Conscious Eating4 Well Being program, Dr. Powell helps her clients understand the disempowering beliefs that keep them stuck. Together, Dr. Powell and her clients create goals to overcome their health challenges.
“We have to change how we nourish our bodies,” says Dr. Powell.
