WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional medicine addresses the underlying root cause of a disease as opposed to using medications that only mask symptoms. By using the latest in diagnostic testing, it allows us to uncover many overlooked reasons as to WHY you have certain medical conditions.
This clinic offers a full functional medicine approach to healing. This typically involves a comprehensive diagnostic work-up based upon the patient's current complaints, (blood, urine, stool, saliva, nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities, hormones, etc. may be used, to name a few) to get to the root cause of any and all issues. (Diabetes, Autoimmune issues, thyroid, anxiety, depression, ADHD, sleep issues, inflammatory, hormone imbalances, skin issues, hair loss, pain, digestive and stomach disorders, fatigue, weight gain, etc.)
It is a whole-body approach which addresses all dysfunctions causing issues in the body. We utilize all natural, research-based, nutritional approaches to heal. We then rerun labs until all issues or symptoms have resolved. This plan becomes unique & customized to each individual, therefore, becomes a very effective style of healthcare.
This is NOT just alternative or integrative medicine. This is a science-based, fundamental change in the way we think about health and disease. Patients generally start seeing improvements and feeling better in the first 2 days.
