Cherri Schleicher


Family Nurse Practitioner

As with each and every one of us; our life evolves and our story continues to develop.  As I continued to practice and educated myself and did research looking at “root causes” of illness and those triggers upstream I began educating myself in Functional Medicine.

My philosophy of care is on the patient-practitioner relationship. It encompasses a mutual approach to care, focusing on the mind, body, spirit connection. In order to achieve health and wellness all three of these areas are integrated into everyone’s care. Lifestyle interventions such as nutrition, movement, stress reduction sleep and your personal passions and joys in life are all a part of the healing process.

Why Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is personalized medicine that deals with root cause or events “upstream” instead of just treating symptoms. I seek to create a sustainable lifestyle by promoting hope, health and healing. This healing is for you both physically emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Functional Medicine Incorporates:


Patient Centered Care

We work together to look at your lifestyle, genetics and living environment.  I meet you and your family where YOU are, listening to your story and striving to help you maintain health and wellness beyond just absence of disease.


Integrative Science-based approach

All of my approaches are based on scientific research.  Together we’ll look at the options and determine the best path for YOUR wellness journey.


Best Medical Practice

Functional Medicine incorporates the best of both traditional Western Medicine along with Integrative or Alternative Medicine, creating a focus on prevention and getting at the root cause of your health concerns.
