Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that deals with the primary prevention and underlying causes of (instead of symptoms of) chronic disease. It is a patient-centered approach that looks at the patient as a whole person, seeking out interactions in genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that contribute to long-term health and chronic disease.

Treatment begins with a detailed history of your present health status, an exam, and a complete look at your current dietary habits. The next step is to determine which tests would be most appropriate for identifying the underlying causes of your health problem. Test samples may include: blood, urine, stool, and saliva. We utilize select, accredited labs around the country for our testing.

After the doctor reviews your lab results, a treatment plan is created to correct the imbalances found in your body. Your treatment plan will be customized to you and may include lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and supplementation.
