Functional Medicine is the clinical application of systems-based biology. Functional Medicine asks how and why an illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. A person is not an isolated set of symptoms. Complex, chronic illness is determined by a combination of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. Your treatment plan may involve prescription medication, nutrition, botanicals, supplements, detoxification, exercise and mindfulness practice.
Your Treatment Plan Will Consider:
Your Autonomic Nervous System
Inflammation and Immune Balance
Hormones and Neurotransmitters
Energy, Oxidative Stress and Mitochondrial Function
Gut and Digestive Health
At the first visit, I will listen to your story and develop a timeline of your health. I may also order labs to better understand the root cause of your health concerns. From there, I will work with you to connect the dots between your story and timeline, lab results, and lifestyle factors to identify a path forward. Together, we will create a plan that works for you, giving you clarity on the path to what optimal healing is for you.
Eliciting your complete story during the Functional Medicine intake
Identifying and addressing the challenges of your modifiable lifestyle factors and environmental exposures
Organizing clinical imbalances by identifying underlying causes of disease in a systems biology matrix framework
Establishing a mutually empowering partnership
We’ll start out with a health history. This may last 90 minutes to over three hours depending on complexity. Time is billed at $450 an hour. I want to hear your story, your narrative on your health. I will ask you new questions. I will honor your story. I will find a plan that works for you.

“I began being treated by Dr. Hopkins after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, and the best way to sum up my relationship with her is: she has changed my life for the better. I have three small children, and with her brilliance, guidance, and encouragement, I have been able to regain energy and focus on how I want to live: as someone who is intentional in her relationships.”
“My husband and I had the great fortune of working with Dr. Kat Hopkins. When we first met her, we could tell right away that we were in good hands. She is kind, competent, and incredibly wise. We were so impressed with her thoughtful explanations of our health challenges and her novel thinking on what we could do to feel better. Dr. Hopkins is very thorough and clearly an exceptional diagnostician and clinician. We especially appreciated that she would let us know when she discovered new treatment options. She clearly invests her time and energy into finding the best approach for each individual patient. We could not recommend her more highly! She will change your health, and your life!”
– Erin Erickson, DNP, MPH, MA
"When my wife and I met Dr. Hopkins, I had been suffering from severe eczema and occasional abdominal pain. The doctors in my insurance network were unable to discover the root cause and told me these symptoms were something I would have for the rest of my life and my only relief would be a lifelong prescription. Dr. Hopkins not only discovered the cause of my eczema, she presented us with solutions, protocols and references to other professionals to aid both myself and my wife in our recovery and fertility journey. Dr. Kat and her whole crew are compassionate, knowledgeable, and immensely supportive. I highly recommend her and her Olos Integrative team. Thank you so much!"
