Functional medicine is an approach that looks at the how and why of chronic symptoms and disease to address the root cause for each individual in order to restore and optimize health and wellbeing. It is highly personalized, and allows for a strong, problem-solving partnership between patient and practitioner. Our team is ready to partner with you in your health and wellness.

Dr. Georgia Balsley
Naturopathic Doctor & Master Herbalist
Bio coming soon!
Brandi is a women's health nurse practitioner and certified nurse-midwife who has been in practice for 12 years. She has completed all of the functional medicine coursework through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) and is working toward certification. Her specialty areas are hormonal health, fertility, gut health, and chronic infections (such as Lyme). She believes that every person is unique as is each person's road to wellness. There are often multiple areas of imbalance that can be addressed, and everything is connected, so healing in one area will inevitably result in healing in other areas.
As a health coach, my role is to support you in identifying what is making you feel unwell and work with you to make gradual, sustainable diet and lifestyle changes so you can feel good again and enjoy life! Functional medicine looks for the root cause of your symptoms and as the health coach, I bridge the gap between the doctor and patient! I’m with you every step of the way.
After exploring South Carolina, then Northern Michigan, I finally returned to my Southern Michigan roots!
I have a passion for health, wellness, and everyone feeling their best inside and out. Throughout my own health journey, I have felt the benefits first-hand and know how important and difficult lifestyle changes can be.
When I am not managing the OBX Functional Medicine office, I enjoy traveling to new places, walking with Kaya (our Goldendoodle), gardening, cooking, kayaking, and being creative.
