- What is functional medicine?
- The history of functional medicine & how it’s changed over time.

Dr Krista Coombs
Dr. Krista Coombs has been practicing Chinese medicine for over two decades, and in the last 9 years has also integrated Functional medicine into her practice, elevating her ability to help patients regain their health and to truly thrive.
Through her own experience learning to manage a complex autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, she eventually realized the need for reverence around the fundamentals for health. Ensuring the fundamentals are being mastered is crucial to do either before or at least while digging deeper for answers using fancy testing and while including supplements and medications.
This realization lead her to the development of her online group program, The EASY Way with Dr. K, which teaches the lucky Members how to establish the foundations for healing, in an empowered, low cost way, so that their stubborn metabolism gets reset, weight is appropriately managed, and the body’s varied systems start functioning better and better together as Nature intended. It’s a 4 EASY Foundational Pillar approach to health.
She has seen for herself and hundreds of patients how this renewed focus on the foundations reduces the need for more complex treatment strategies, all giving the power back to the patient to direct their lives and increase their health span.
