Functional Medicine

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is true health care and healing at its best. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, it treats individuals who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances, and dysfunctions.

Named diseases are just the tip of the iceberg. Below the surface, according to Functional Medicine, are the real causes health problems.

That sounds logical, right? Treat the cause and eliminate its effect. However, health care today treats just the tip of the iceberg and rarely leads to long-term relief, vibrancy, or health.

What is Functional Medicine?

Today’s health care system applies a medical management model designed for acute (sudden) health problems which often is unsuccessful at treating chronic (long term) health conditions.

If you have a heart attack or an infection, you want a quick-thinking doctor and access to surgery and medications to treat these conditions quickly. However, jumping in with drugs and surgeries for those with chronic health conditions like arthritis or diabetes often does not treat the cause of the condition which then never cures the disease.

Our Approach

We have an individual-specific approach. Each person has different nutritional requirements.
We start with NUTRI-SPEC® Metabolic Testing. This test utilizes 46 quick and unique clinical tests performed in our office to determine 11 possible imbalances. Next are a comprehensive blood nutritional analysis and hormonal testing. From these tests we can find what is impeding your body from being healthy and what your body is lacking. The findings combined from these three tests allow us to recommend a tailor made program to bring you back into health.

You will not be taking nutritional supplements and/or herbs that make you tired, sick, and plainly do you no good.
Patients only take vitamins and minerals based on their individual test results. They will know what foods contribute the most to their health and those that they should avoid – again based on individual test results. We scientifically monitor each patients nutritional and health needs as they change over time.

After diagnosis and treatment, our patients can expect his or her symptoms to diminish in severity, with a renewed sense of well-being and significant increase in health and vitality.

"After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I had daily knee pain for 2 years that lasted all day long. It was a sharp pain and getting worse. It made it hard to walk and stand still. It would get worse going up stairs and walking. I tried medications and injections, but finally gave up on that. After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!"

“Before I started the treatment, my feet were on fire, like walking on broken glass and it was affecting my golf game! This had been going on for 5 or 6 years. Golf is my life. I couldn’t play 18 holes, and if I did I couldn’t walk the next day. My feet would swell and I couldn’t put on my shoes. I’m still receiving treatment but the pain has significantly reduced and the swelling is gone! The guys I play golf with noticed I don’t limp as much. I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!”

"I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!"

"They led me through a program that resulted in my legs and ankles becoming free of pain. Before the end of the treatment routine, an additional wonder was that my knees were free of any pain, also!! A month following my treatment, I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!!"
