My Passion For Functional Medicine
The principles of functional medicine sparked my interest to further explore the complex chemistry that connects our organ systems. Our DNA, which spans twice the diameter of the solar system, comprises an intelligent genetic code, which is responsible for coordinating homeostasis in our roughly 30 trillion cells.
The study of epigenetics has taught us that the environment does not change our DNA, but rather modulates its tone. Hence, understanding a cell’s supply-demand relationship is one of the keys to unlocking our true genetic potential. I strive in providing the fuel your body needs to code for a healthier physical and mental state.
All of us have genes that work slower, and yet we can live a normal life as unique human beings. However, when these weaker genes in addition get stressed by lacking the appropriate signaling molecules (deficiency), and/or are exposed to inhibiting chemicals (toxicity), they often fail to keep up with the demand. The result is an imbalance (inflammation), which ultimately can manifest itself with physical and mental symptoms, e.g. stress. The implications are vast.
I have studied key genetic codes responsible for detoxification, inflammation, methylation, cell repair, and the coordination of neurotransmitter metabolism. I test and correlate genetic variations to my patients’ symptoms and may recommend obtaining additional insight by utilizing other tests.
This allows for a very targeted approach to each individual, as key roadblocks are addressed with the appropriate action to modulate a particular genetic environment. The problem is addressed at its root.
Root Cause Medicine
We have chosen a path to find solutions for chemical imbalances by studying toxic environmental influences on various cellular, biochemical, and genetic systems. Toxicities lead to deficiencies and deficiencies lead to toxicities. Sooner or later, this results in stress on our bodies, our minds and the entire system.
At Bogner Health, we focus on our patients’ desires and hence spend time listening, expanding our understanding of the individual affected before correlating symptoms with laboratory findings. Let us be part of your journey to discover your true genetic potential by creating a roadmap on how to get you there, one step at a time.

Maggie Yaklin is a Registered Nurse (RN) and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Eastern Michigan University. She is an experienced clinician and is completing her studies to become a certified functional medicine provider. Maggie specializes in holistic oral health, in herbal remedies with a concentration in adaptogens, and in aiding parents to find the best resources and products to facilitate positive health and lifestyle changes for their children.
As a part of the Bogner Health team, Maggie is dedicated to providing quality individualized care by assisting with each step of a patient’s powerful journey back to health and healing
As a mom of two with a background in integrative medicine, I had to take the health of my family into my own hands when my daughter experienced a whole host of unexplained health issues that traditional approaches could not solve. I understand what it means to be a parent willing to do any thing to help heal your child, while at the same time having to optimize your own health. I convey this empowerment that comes from realizing how health changes can become a reality for the entire family.
On a personal note, I enjoy reading and researching all of the latest and most up-to-date information on health and wellness. Although, a fiction novel (or 2 or 3) will make make it into the book pile. I am a big proponent of spending as much time outside as possible and love to camp and explore nature with my children. I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes that help our bodies function the way it should.
