Take this short quiz to find out if
undiagnosed gut issues are to blame!
Patients rarely associate symptoms like brain fog, joint pain or allergies with impaired gut health, but the microbiome and the protective gut lining are our body's first defense!
That's why at Modern Health KC, going deeper on possible gut imbalances & stealth infections is part of our integrative approach... so we can dial down inflammation & premature aging.
Sometimes, the gut isn’t actually the problem, it's what you eat and how that affects the billions of bacteria in your GI tract. A poor diet (or frequent use of antibiotics) can kill the good gut bacteria and prevent the body from producing critical vitamins & neurotransmitters essential for balanced mood, calm mind, all-day-energy and a resilient immune system!
Persistent gut issues can spiral into systemic inflammation... which can eventually turn the body against itself. It's no wonder that psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's and type I diabetes are at an all-time high... so we need to address chronic inflammation first before looking into more conventional options to help you reclaim vibrant health + wellness.
I’m Kerri Howerton, a chiropractic physician, certified functional medicine practitioner, owner of Modern Health KC, and lover of Very Berry Hibiscus Tea.
I have created Modern Health KC with women and children in mind. If you have ever done a 30 fat burn cleanse or 28-day reset and you were healed then you would not be reading this.
At Modern Health KC we are in it for the long haul. Some behaviors, habits, and routines have taken years to create. To think we could reverse the damage done by a modern environment in 30 days would not be a responsible tactic.
Helping people live a more balanced & healthier life isn't just our job, it's our passion! We take our commitment to lifelong, optimal health + wellness very seriously... incorporating the latest scientific advances and dedicated to the very best care possible.
We focus on giving you the care you need, not the care sanctioned by health insurance – which is why our programs include longer appointment times, more communication, more advanced testing and guidance on lifestyle factors that can truly make or break your health.
We like to think of ourselves as your trusted partner towards a healthier, more resilient life – supporting you every step of the way, because we know what's possible when you have the right guide by your side!
If you haven't found the answers you've been looking for with traditional medicine and still feel unheard, you are in the right place! We're excited to make you our next success story, so let's take the first step with the quiz :)
"I cannot begin to tell you how knowledgeable and helpful Dr. Howerton is in the nutritional medicine field. Once I decided to work with her, she walked me through all the steps and gave me the tools I needed to change for good. She gave me the support to finally help me understand the importance of my relationship with Food. THIS WAS HUGE!!"
"Dr. Howerton taught me to love whole foods and to know the difference between foods that fuel me rather than just feed me. This is where the program is so important to each person. Foods that reacted to me, may not to you. She takes you through the entire process of understanding your body and the way each food reacts to you. This is life-changing."
"Dr. Howerton is WEALTH of knowledge when it comes to balancing gut bacteria and getting to the root cause of all kinds of problems such as bloating, irregularity, heartburn, etc. But, it goes much further than those symptoms. She helped people find energy, improve their mood and shed some weight! Can’t say enough about her.!"
