You are an integrated whole.
Your organs, glands and systems are intricately connected together and dependent on each other to make up your magnificent body. Given what it needs to function optimally, your body will heal and thrive. Unfortunately, life does not make it easy to stay healthy.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is our way of assessing your whole body in order to design a specific nutritional protocol personalized to meet the needs of your body. What it means for you is that we support your body, rather than treat your symptoms.
We gather an extensive history as well as laboratory and functional tests. These may include any combination of traditional blood, saliva, urine, and stool tests which assist us in assessing your condition and determining your nutritional needs. This approach addresses the body as a whole rather than its parts.
Risks of Misinformation
There is a lot of misinformation out there that makes it difficult to make the right decisions when it comes to your health and wellbeing. This has resulted in an overweight and sick nation. When you get sick, symptoms are your body's way of telling you that something is broken. Treating the symptoms is not the answer.
Functional Medicine Is...
Science Based Approach
Holistic & Natural
A SPECIFIC PLAN MADE FOR YOU
Everyone's nutritional needs are different. If you are tired, for example, it could be because of any combination of underlying problems such as your thyroid or adrenals malfunctioning, anemia or anemic tendencies, blood sugar imbalances, or any number of other issues. Applying a cookie cutter, symptom driven approach using supplementation is not the answer, it may or may not produce results or may give you temporary relief, but it will not help you heal. With functional medicine, we deal with the foundation necessary to support and fuel your cells. We look for the cause behind the symptoms and utilize natural products to support systems thereby restoring homeostasis and balance to the body. We do this with diet and lifestyle changes as well as supplementation, herbs and/or homeopathic remedies; protocols that are unique to each and every one of you. Properly nourished, your body can do what it does best... heal!
