Salena Rothenberger, D.PSc, CFMP, CHC

Salena and her husband spent many years challenged with infertility, losing their first four children. In 2014, their oldest living child was diagnosed with autoimmune type 1 diabetes. This caused her to delve headfirst into natural and functional medicine, and later nutrigenomics, as she pursued answers to why her perfectly ‘normal’ child developed a chronic health disease.

She became a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Certified Health Coach and obtained certification in Nutrigenomics through NutriGenetic Research Institute. She has studied an additional 300+ hours in Functional Immunology, Autoimmunity Clinical Strategies, and other Functional & Herbal Medicine related training. She is the founder of The Functional Perspective where she teaches individuals how to connect their genomics with their health to create a strategy for a clear path to restored wellness. Her mission is to redefine healthcare by providing others Clarity, Action steps, Resources, and Empowerment. (C.A.R.E)

Mihaela Gruita, PharmD, CFMP

As the Naturopathic Pharmacist, her focus is on medication-related nutrient deficiencies - yes, medications cause nutrient deficiencies that keep you sick or may even make you sicker. To that end, she evaluates patients’ medication and supplement lists and assesses nutritional deficiencies, potential overdoses, and drug-nutrient interactions. Her ultimate approach is to find the root cause of the original problem.

Mihaela's education and training include a Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Southern California, certified in Medication Therapy Management and Diabetes Medication Therapy Management through the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists. She is a Certified Functional Medicine Provider and a Certified Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner as well as a Certified Digestive Health and Insulin Resistance Coach.
