What do you mean by functional medicine?
Millions of people suffer from chronic illnesses today. These include: Autoimmune diseases, Autism, TBI/Concussion, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndromes (IBS, IBD), PANS, PANDAS, POTS, food allergies, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, dementia, MS, cancer, ear infections, post-stroke care, Parkinson’s, frequent colds/flu, and many others.
Solutions for these conditions do exist. Recovery is an option.
We offer a unique program of “Functional Medicine,” evaluating your health through a multi-pronged approach.
We will assess your lifestyle habits, overall symptom pattern, and diet/exercise routines before running a series of appropriate tests in order to look deeper at the causes of your health concerns.
These may include blood, saliva, stool, urine, and cheek swabs.
Once we collect all the information we need, we will create a specific treatment program that meets your needs.
We do not use preset protocols. We understand that each patient has their own set of circumstances and devise a unique program for them.
A Functional Medicine program is completely tailored to you, based on the initial consultation and a variety of tests we perform.
The recommendations will change over time as your symptoms and function begin to improve.
The purpose of this therapy is to improve your quality of life!
The truth is, the body will do everything it can to heal itself.
We just need to help create a healing environment with the proper resources and nutrients.
With functional nutrition programs, we are able to show people how to improve their health, not just control their symptoms with medications.
Many of our patients choose to work with their previous medical doctors and reduce their long-term pharmaceutical drug use.
With the proper program, you can rebuild and maintain the integrity of your immune, digestive, nervous, and endocrine systems resulting in a reduction or entire elimination of the symptoms from disorders we often assume cannot be healed or controlled.
When you make proper and scientific lifestyle choices, you can prevent many chronic illnesses and/or decrease their negative effects if you already have them.
