About Dr. Alison:
The Long Story

February 19, 2020

Most days of the week, you will find me between my medical center and my CrossFit gym. My role at each is very different. At my functional medicine practice, I work one-on-one with patients who need my help finding answers to solve their chronic health concerns. At my CrossFit gym, it’s much more casual since I’m mostly there to get a workout in, but often end up answering a health related question from one of my members. What’s not different between the two is that people are seeking answers to their health related questions—How do I get more energy? How do I feel better? What supplements should I take? What should I eat? It’s my job to help them find personal health and I’ve learned so much from every one of them. I love answering the questions and talking about health. It helps me to help them find their way to answers.

I wanted to create a space that is consistent with the more casual way I teach people about health like in my CrossFit gym. The goal is to not only teach people the about their personal health but also give them the tools to optimize it. With the knowledge to understand their body, they can experiment and dial in on things that make them feel their best—learning what works for them and what does not.

True, wellness might seem trendy but it’s also something humans naturally desire. But the problem exists—wellness often feels unattainable and impossible. Luckily, I have made a career around it so I have learned a lot by being obsessed about the science of the human body in just the right way and learning from people because I actually get to work with them one-on-one. I believe that the only way to best understand your body is to treat it well enough so you’re able to feel when something is or isn’t working for you. This is function and truly want to help others find it.
