What is Functional Medicine?
We practice a new form of medicine that combines the best elements of conventional medicine and alternative medicine, while also emphasizing the importance of nutrition and lifestyle.
This new medicine is called "functional medicine" or "systems medicine." It transcends the traditional approach of categorizing the body. Essentially, you no longer have to see a different type of doctor for each part of your body!
Our functional medicine treatments are designed to emphasize and maximize the interconnectedness of your body's systems, which will allow us to help you achieve and maintain optimum function.
Key Elements of Functional Medicine
Functional medicine combines conventional and holistic medicine to treat the root cause of your problem.
To gain a clear picture of your overall health, we use a variety of diagnostic methods: from tried-and-true to the newest and most innovative technologies available.
Our treatments are based on the latest research from peer-reviewed medical journals.
We believe that long lasting success occurs when you and your doctor are equally committed to achieving your highest potential in health and well-being. All of our treatments educate and empower you to be involved in your care.
Our treatments are highly individualized and focused on you—not the disease.
Functional medicine is non-invasive and side effects are very mild, if any.
We accompany your treatments with education, allowing for lasting change to take place and enabling you to transform yourself and your health.
