Zhanna Tarjeft, FNP-BC
Hello, my name is Zhanna, and I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine as an IFMCP (the Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner).
Just seven years ago, I considered myself a healthy adult living a healthy lifestyle. I regularly exercised, cooked organic homemade meals from scratch, ate my recommended servings of whole-grain bread and pasta, vegetables, and a little bit of low-fat meat.

How I Got into Functional Medicine
I was happy to discover Functional Medicine approach after the conventional medicine that I was trained in did not give me answers to my health issues – bloating, abdominal and joint pain, thyroid issues, environmental allergies that showed up from “nowhere”, and a myriad other symptoms!
