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.

Pillars of Health

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Our team implements a variety of modalities including topical therapy, injections, and pellets. While there is not one therapy for everyone,. each patient may benefit for different reasons from different modalities.

These hormones are as close as we can get to the same molecular structure as what exists in our bodies.

Our pellet therapy is beneficial and sought out for a few reasons. First, it’s made as pure as is possible in a dose that’s highly specific to the needs of the patient.

Cognitive Therapy

Alzheimer’s affects over 5 million Americans today. This does not include those suffering from dementia and other levels of severity of cognitive decline.

Here at Integra Health, it is our joy and mission to bring the best possible care to all of our patients, regardless of what they are dealing with and where in their journey they may be. Cognitive decline is no different.

Julie Helm NPc, IFMCP and Team are certified in the Bredesen/ReCODE Protocol provided through Apollo Health. These strategies in combination with a customized Integra Cognition plan paint a picture of healing and optimization.

Nutritional Coaching

All patients will work directly with Julie Helm NPc, IFMCP and additionally, with a coach to implement the plan created for their specific needs.

Your coach will implement Julie’s plan which will help enhance your progress and ensure you are proceeding as desired.

Nutritional coaching at Integra Health is not optional. We welcome patients who have a more advanced knowledge of nutrition, and look forward to helping you further optimize your efforts. This is a team effort that requires all hands on deck.

Conditions Treated

Brain Health

Optimize your brain health and cognitive function with a truly Functional approach that considers all elements of your past and current health. Whether or not brain disorders run in your family, you do have power over your own health.

Gut Health & Intestinal Disorders

As science emerges, we are learning more and more that the health of our gut impacts our overall health in a myriad of significant ways. While you may not know it straight away, many of your symptoms can be related to gut dysbiosis and other gut imbalances.


We offer a functional approach to allergy testing that incorporates effective dietary and lab testing. Our deep dive testing gives us the insight we need to create a plan that identifies and addresses allergies from the root cause up.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diagnosis can feel overwhelming and scary. While the approach is layered, a functional approach to autoimmune disorders are shown to be quite effective in reducing or eliminating symptoms and achieving optimal health, and our team can help.

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic fatigue is one of the most common ailments facing Americans today. While the root causes of chronic fatigue are layered, there are effective methods used to reverse the symptoms of chronic fatigue and optimize health.


Fibromyalgia affects approximately 10 million people in the United States alone. Our functional approach to Fibromyalgia addresses underlying causes such as head and neck trauma and environmental toxins in addition to other important factors, and also uses progressive techniques to fuel healing such as Frequency Specific Microcurrents.

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.
