Hi! My name is Anya Buckett and I’m a functional medicine practitioner. My background
consists of 20 years of being a paramedic and critical care nurse. Almost 20 years deep in to my
healthcare career, I found myself in a position of wanting answers deeper than I was receiving
as a patient—for myself and for my family. In this quest to find answers, I discovered something
called a Functional Medicine. In essence, functional medicine is “root cause “medicine. It dives
deep into the true root cause of ailments. As opposed to Western medicine, functional
medicine will find the answers you are seeking, for example, of why you have a migraine.
Whereas, Western medicine would possibly and most likely prescribe an anti-migraine
medicine and resolve your migraine that way, functional medicine will dive deep into the root
cause of what is truly causing your migraine—be it food sensitivities, histamine intolerance, or
hormone imbalances. This type of medicine and deep diving for true answers is something that
I am incredibly passionate for and something that I feel is my true calling in life. I started my
functional medicine journey to find answers for my own families health, and in doing so, I found
my place in this world. I specialize in histamine intolerance, gut health, mold illness,
environmental toxins, and hormone imbalance.
