Enroot was cultivated in 2016 and re-emerged in 2020 as Enroot Wellness.
Enroot Wellness is dedicated to listening to what your body is saying, and helping provide the means to restore vitality. A functional medicine, evidence-based, and personalized approach to health and well-being, for people and pets.
Caring for complex, chronic conditions involves courage and discovery. At Enroot Wellness, discovery involves a functional nutrition format, using the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating the evidence of clinical imbalances with chronic conditions, history of onset, and current pain points. We offer a thorough review of your bloodwork and other biomarkers to identify nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, food sensitivities, and more. With inflammation at the core of every single disease, discomfort, and dysfunction, root cause resolution is about addressing the core of the inflammation and every individual as unique.

Cami Smalley-Risano, founder of Enroot Wellness, has been studying Internal Family Systems since January 2020 and is currently involved in a 6-month course for utilization of this therapy within the Functional Medicine (FM) paradigm. Having direct experience with this method in her own personal growth, she found it to be powerfully transformative and in line with FM as an evidence-based model of psychotherapy. The IFS model postulates that the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing. A person is not just one personality. Put another way, each individual is a multiplicity of parts (as in “part of me wants to work out today, and part of me does not,” or it could be thought of as in there are many sides to us). The inner parts contain valuable qualities and the core Self knows how to heal, allowing the individual to become integrated and whole. To better preface this modality of understanding the many sides and parts inside each of us, we recommend you watch the Disney movie Inside Out. This is great for the young and the elder, children and adults alike, as it is a beautifully depiction of the internal family system inside each of us; the angry side, the introverted part, the outgoing one, the gleeful part…and so on.
In IFS all parts are welcome. One of the tenets of Functional Medicine (FM) is the recognition of a weblike interconnectedness between mind, body, and spirit – and therefore the emphasis on mental, emotional, and spiritual health as a precursor to, and influencer of, physical health and healing. It is through this lens that IFS applied during functional wellness sessions can help influence overall healing, in quick and dramatic ways. IFS + FM together can provide profound and poetic healing.
