Jacksonville is now the home of Origins Functional Wellness, a clinic that focuses on the root cause or "origins" of illness. Unlike conventional medicine, functional medicine doesn't just look at a constellation of symptoms, but what is beneath those symptoms driving the dis-ease. Origins Functional Wellness brings their passion for health, wellness and a deep desire to serve the Rogue Valley in a new way. Their philosophy is to work in partnership with patients to discover and understand the underlying causes of disease and create workable treatment options. Going one step further, Origins educates their patients about the importance of good self-care and creating healthy lifestyle choices, which include enjoying all the beauty in Southern Oregon. Bronwen Erickson, FNP-C ,"Bron" graduated summa sum laude from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She received her master’s degree and Family Nurse Practitioner post-graduate certificate from Texas A&M University Corpus Christie where she graduated with distinction. She is board certified in family medicine by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. She is a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, The Age Management Medicine Group, and the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine. Bron started her career in allopathic medicine, however, she soon realized that treating the human body as various parts was not the answer to chronic health issues. It wasn't until she began studying Functional Integrative Medicine that she found her true passion. Helping patients find answers to their current health issues, preventing disease and regaining and maintaining health are the cornerstones of her practice. Bron is the heart and soul, not to mention brains of Origins, but she has surrounded herself with a great team who understand that change is not easy. As a team, they help to educate and guide the support necessary to effect lasting change. They are committed to working with people who are serious about turning their health around and who are willing to do the work necessary to bring this about. Origins is located at 675 N. 5th Street in Jacksonville right across from Gary West Meats. The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 9 to 5 and welcomes new patients.
