Functional Medicine Practitioner
I’m Meg Mill, a Functional Medicine Practitioner, Doctor of Pharmacy, and mom of three. I’ve been there, I get it, and I’m here to HELP YOU!
My practice is focused on helping people end headaches and migraines, balance hormones, heal the gut, reduce inflammation, increase energy, reduce anxiety and restore their immune systems.
A healthy lifestyle and preventative care have always been my passion. I graduated with a PharmD in 2002 from Duquesne University and continued with a residency at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in Ambulatory Care. After almost two decades in conventional medicine and seeing people survive rather than thrive in our current system, I knew there was another way. For this reason, I embarked on a journey to gain knowledge and certification in the field of Functional Medicine.
On a personal note, I was also a patient struggling for answers and not being heard just like you. I have been in your shoes and been told I was the picture of health when in fact I felt terrible. It is frustrating and confusing to be told you are "fine" when you know you should feel better. We are each unique and should not be treated in a "cookie-cutter" approach to health. I am told regularly, "You are the first health practitioner I have ever worked with who has really listened to me." You know when something is not right and should be heard. I promise to listen and dig deep to understand the underlying cause of your concerns instead of merely alleviating your symptoms, and provide you the support you need to get the transformation you are looking for
I am also passionate about empowering you to take control of your life, starting with your health. As your partner in this journey, my ultimate goal is to provide you with the tools you need to live and sustain your healthiest most fulfilled life.
The truth is health is not always just about labs and tests which is why I use a mind, body approach and provide the support you need to get the results you are seeking.
I see people locally and internationally through zoom.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a root cause approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a partnership.
By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with each patient, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique presentation of health and vitality for each individual.
By addressing the root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners can identify the complexity of disease. We may find one condition has many different causes and one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual.
