Functional Medicine

"Functional medicine is about looking at the whole person, not just treating a disease. It's about understanding the interconnections between our biology, our environment, and our behavior."

- Dr. Terry Wahls

The goal of functional medicine is to address the ​

underlying causes of illness and promote overall health and wellness. Functional medicine considers a person's unique genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. Finding the root cause of disease involves a comprehensive evaluation of health history, thorough medical exam, and diagnostic testing in order to identify the underlying imbalances and deficiencies that may be contributing to disease process. Functional medicine lab testing is often more in-depth and personalized than traditional mainstream medical testing. 

Functional medicine can address a wide range of conditions including:

1. Digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and acid reflux.

2. Hormonal imbalances, including thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue, PCOS, and more.

3. Autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis.

4. Chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia.

5. Mental health disorders, such as anxiety, depression, and ADHD.

6. Cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

7. Allergies and sensitivities, including food allergies and environmental allergies.

8. Obesity and metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and insulin resistance.

9. Skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

10. Chronic infections, including Lyme disease and chronic viral infections.
