Adaptations Wellness is a functional medicine and pediatrics clinic led by Mechelle Kennedy, NP-C, in Spring Branch, Texas. A graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas, Mechelle has over twenty years of nursing experience in primary care, urgent care, occupational health, orthopedics, oncology, and cosmetics.
Though she loved working as a nurse practitioner in all these settings, Mechelle was troubled by the time constraints she faced. She never had time to form genuine relationships with her patients or to teach them how to truly care for themselves. She wanted more than the quick solutions of traditional medicine, like prescribing medications to treat minor diseases or constantly increasing patient doses to achieve desired results.
Mechelle’s whole outlook changed when she visited a naturopathic doctor and discovered functional medicine.
She realized the effect that foods have on physical, mental, and emotional health and saw a path forward with functional medicine. Using functional medicine, Mechelle has been able to get to know her patients and individualize their care plans to provide optimal health in a way she never could before.
She has since helped countless patients at her practice find freedom from depression, thyroid dysfunction, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, gastrointestinal disorders, skin disorders, and much more.
Mechelle strives to be a provider who listens, understands, and never stops trying to solve issues, even the most challenging ones. She believes all patient complaints are real and never dismisses symptoms.
