Redefining Health'Care'

Are you looking for a


approach to health?

The journey to wellness begins with an in-depth look at your health history as we become health detectives!

From there we chart out a course, unique to you, as we identify opportunities to restore balance through food, activity and lifestyle changes which support your genes while maximizing your health!

Gaining Clarity

Our number one goal is to help you get crystal clear on where you are in your health journey and where you want to be.   This is why we help you to kick-start that process with our complimentary Functional Health Score and Discovery Consult.  

Together they allow us (including you) to see if we can help you identify the missing pieces of your health.

Digging Deeper
Uncovering the reason why a disease manifests or why symptoms are present is the core concept and foundation of what we do.  Helping others to connect the dots of their symptoms as we look at a wide array of factors which play a role in health.

I promise that no one has ever delved this deep into your health background as we do here at Functional Health Mama. 

From this day forward, your health journey will change from chasing symptoms to supporting your innate healing systems.  We will share our knowledge with you with an emphasis on teaching you what you need to know to regain, and maintain, health and vitality!

This is how we re-define Health Care!

Meet the Functional Health Mama!

Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CFMP, CHC

Functional Health Mentor, Wellness Advocate and Founder of The Functional Perspective

Too often, people think of “wellness” as something temporary, or worse, unobtainable. Their work with doctors ends up taking short-term steps to improve their life… and “wellness”… but often fall back to their less healthy routines once they are left to fend for themselves and rely on symptom management protocols designed for the masses.  After seeing this happen with her own son, Salena wanted to provide an opportunity which not only helped others to improve their gastrointestinal health, autoimmune disease, and overall wellness, but also give them the tools to continue their progress “infinitely”, long after they completed their program.
