How I Help You
Medicine likes to break the human body into separate components to be treated. Hormones, the immune system, digestive function, and brain health are a tightly woven, interdependent matrix. Simple metabolic assessment forms and early detection and screening laboratory services are available to us to paint a more accurate picture of your health in degrees of grey.
Our approach focuses on systems-based nutrition, gut repair, metabolic reconditioning, detoxification, therapeutic dietary changes and lifestyle modification.
Address the Root, Learn the Keys, Live the Solution
Due to modern stressors not known even 50 years ago, patients now face health issues that have not been well defined in classic medical literature. Modern stressors include environmental toxins, dietary excesses of sugars and carbohydrates, GMO’s, pharmaceuticals, daily stress issues, immunological challenges including viruses, parasites, bacteria, and more.
Due to these stressors, we acknowledge that chronic disease tends to be preceded by a lengthy period of declining function in one or more of the body’s systems. Those dysfunctions are, for each of us, the result of lifelong interactions among our environment, lifestyle, and genetic predispositions.
Functional Medicine offers a different approach, with methodology and tools that are specifically designed to address these modern stressors while focusing on the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
Instead of the top-down approach of managing symptoms with a drug, our focus is to evaluate and treat the underlying mechanisms that are causing the dysfunction.
