About Functional Medicine
Functional medicine provides a method for re-balancing the body’s underlying physiological systems and addressing lifestyle issues that contribute to illness. When this is done your biology’s inherent healing forces are unleashed and chronic illness is resolved naturally and quickly often without the need for costly pharmaceutical medications or invasive surgeries. In this way, functional medicine offers a unique approach to understanding the terrain of chronic illness and provides us a whole new way to address the epidemic of chronic disease we face in the 21st century.
We do not treat the individual diseases; we deal with underlying health dysfunctions in the individual patient. We do not prescribe or alter medications; we restore health. Our program works in conjunction with the patients prescribing doctor who will decide when and if the patient can reduce or eliminate any medication.
