About Julie Helm NPc, IFMCP

Julie D. Helm, NPc, IFMCP is a leading expert and practitioner in Functional Medicine. She graduated both top of her class at Georgetown University where she received her degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner and in the top quintile for an advanced certification in Functional Medicine from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She is also certified in the Bredesen Protocol.

Over the past decade, Julie has worked in family medicine in the state of California and serves as a clinical faculty advisor to California FNP students in Georgetown University’s program.

As the founding practitioner of Integra Health & Wellness, Julie Helm NPc, IFMCP is working diligently to bring effective and progressive care to patients both locally and from areas all over the country. She addresses the biochemical dysfunctions that underscore the root causes of medical diagnoses in order to truly heal her patients.

Functional Medicine has played an integral role in the development of care and practice for Julie. While many professionals identify with Functional Medicine, Julie’s experience and education truly set her apart from the rest.

Functional Medicine is an evidence-based approach to medicine in which the practitioner truly uncovers, understands, and pieces together the root causes of symptoms and illness. Unlike conventional practices (which undoubtedly have a place in our system), Functional Medicine avoids the “band-aid” approach which solely looks at pieces of one’s health and applies temporary and ineffective measures to address illness.

The work being done at Integra Health & Wellness is a culmination of years of experience both in the classroom and in patient care. Julie has brought together elements of care, testing, and therapies that are effective in addressing and caring for your symptoms.

What Is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is becoming more and more of a household name, and it’s incredibly important that it continues to help more and more people in their quest for health and positive outcomes.

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying root causes of symptoms for each individual patient. The idea that every single patient is unique in their history, genetics, and lifestyle habits is the foundation for ensuring care is thorough, effective, and sustainable.

Julie Helm is a certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and is able to weave and implement those ideologies and best practices throughout all aspects of her practice.

It is important that we highlight how far Functional Medicine has come over the past decade. The Cleveland Clinic has pioneered integrating Functional Medicine into “mainstream” care and practice, making it one of the most internationally recognized clinics of our time.

In her free time, Julie enjoys volunteering, playing piano, cooking, exercise of all sorts, and spending time with her husband of 35 years and her two adult children and daughter-in-law. Julie currently lives on a cattle horse ranch in Central Valley.
