Our Functional Nutrition Programs Are Transformative
Functional nutrition uses food as a natural medicine to help restore balance, nutrient deficiencies, balance hormones, and heal the gut. AGAPE’s functional nutrition plans consider food as a tool to help address the underlying cause of various conditions.
We use advanced laboratory results as evidence of inflammation and imbalances that may cause triggers. Dr. Pauletti works closely with our patients to establish unique nutrition plans that encompass their lifestyles while addressing unwanted symptoms and restoring balance in the brain and body.

Best Individualized Plans
At AGAPE, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all dietary plan. Each person has a unique genetic makeup, health history, emotional state, and lifestyle. Therefore, we do not develop a generic nutrition plan based on a “medical diagnosis” only.
There are many components that we encompass that other traditional nutrition programs do not cover and that make our nutrition plans unique. We consider your emotional, physical, and nutritional needs when developing a plan. Therefore, our guidance, coaching, and goal setting will always differ from individual to individual.

Functional nutrition is based on the idea and concept of functional medicine. Functional medicine is a unique way of treating and preventing illness. Looking at the entire body and brain systems, it addresses the root causes of diseases and not just the apparent symptoms.
With functional medicine, the doctor does not write a prescription to manage the symptoms. Instead, he tries to address why you developed these symptoms in the first place.
These exact same principles are applied to functional nutrition. With functional nutrition, food is considered part of the remedy. It is about using food as medicine, mainly to help a patient increase their health and wellness.
In a traditional standard diet, the nutritionist may suggest a particular meal plan, standard to all patients. A functional nutritionist would never suggest a diet without a thorough series of tests and investigations.
They may test food sensitivity and run a series of advanced blood work and lab tests for specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies to learn more about your individual system and how the body responds to certain foods.
These types of tests help indicate which foods can cause the body to react negatively.
In functional nutrition, the functional medicine practitioner may recommend an elimination diet and add certain supplements or foods that will replenish levels of vitamins or minerals that may have been missing from your diet, and dive deeper into other lifestyle conditions like sleep quality, stress levels, activity level, and other factors can make have an effect your wellness.
The 5-R protocol is a tool used by functional nutritional practitioners to define process steps in their approach:
These steps correspond to the way a functional nutrition practitioner like Dr. Pauletti would study and help remediate a person’s condition.
