Jen Miller, Functional Medicine
About Jen Miller
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner passionate about health and wellness. I believe that the human body was designed to achieve health if given the right tools. I have a Master’s of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University and have studied functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine, the Arizona Institute for Integrative Medicine, and the Kresser Institute. My experience is broad having worked for over 14 years in family practice, urgent care, pediatrics, and women’s health caring for complex conditions in people of all ages–newborns through those at the end of life. I specialize in hormone rebalancing, thyroid health, women’s health, weight loss, gut health and nutritional healing for all ages.
Twelve years ago I experienced a radical health transformation. I was 30 pounds overweight–having gained steadily after each of my pregnancies and struggling to feel comfortable in my own body. I spent years trying everything conventional medicine taught me to do–low fat, low carb, low calorie, and exercise more. I was motivated to change, but nothing seemed to work. I felt trapped in a stranger’s body, wondering how it happened. I felt hopeless. I no longer felt beautiful. This was not the vision I had for my life or for the life of my family. I started on a journey to find a new way forward.
What I discovered was functional medicine. Functional medicine goes beyond the surface and searches for the root cause of health dysfunction. Functional medicine is the science addressing the root cause of illness, health dysfunction and disease. I wanted to know why my body would not cooperate with my efforts. I studied hormones, gut health, nutrition, stress, immune function and adrenal fatigue. I radically changed my diet, I became excited about exercise, I began to reduce stress through good sleep habits and seeking connection through relationships. I not only lost the 30 pounds, but I found emotional freedom from the weight struggle. I now have freedom to dream about what comes next.
I have spent the past twelve years helping others discover the same freedom and hope. I spend the time needed to get to the root cause of your condition. I am no longer satisfied with treating symptoms. You and I, together, dive deeply into your history including your childhood health, environmental exposures, life stressors, medications, illness…all of those little things adding to your health picture. I want to know it all. What are your health goals? What do you dream of doing if you could achieve your ideal health? What is standing in the way? I order specialized labs and tests when needed to help me understand how your body is functioning. Armed with all of this information, I am able to create a specialized plan for your health. Your body was created to do amazing things and my goal is to help you heal, transform and find freedom.
