We believe in active doctor-patient communication, and we bet it will be hard for you to find another healthcare team more willing to be available for you along the way. We do things differently than probably any other doctor that you have seen.
STRUGGLING WITH CHRONIC DISEASE?
Through the concentration on symptoms, our health care system has gradually been converted to a disease care system, and functional medicine offers a viable approach to reverse this trend. Unfortunately, as the state of health has changed throughout our nation, our health care system has remained fairly stagnant in its approach to healing. While our country's traditional approach to treatment was successful for the types of diseases present in 1920, it has grown less effective at treating the chronic epidemics of today. While the diseases of days gone by were typically of short duration and responded well to quick fixes such as surgery and medication, it has become increasingly evident that today's chronic conditions require a different approach.
An increased complexity of diseases requires an equally comprehensive approach to treatment. Where traditional medicine has focused on the condition, functional medicine is aimed at treating the individual. Through this approach, functional medicine practitioners consider the unique genetic, environmental, and occupational factors, along with functional lab results to determine what may be contributing to a persons sickness. By doing so, we can design the best natural plan for each patient.

WHAT MAKES FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE UNIQUE?
With chronic diseases currently spiraling out of control, and people being fed up with side effects of medications, it has been become increasingly obvious that a different health care approach is both needed and warranted. Functional medicine is unique in that it often focuses on variations in metabolism to both identify a predisposition to developing a condition and to discover the underlying cause if already present. We concentrate on being your health care teacher. Can you remember a time your doctor truly educating you about your health care condition? Through this avenue, functional medicine practitioners will allow you to take back control of your health. After all, you are the one suffering from the condition, shouldn't your treatment be focused on you and not the other people who have had similar problems?
YOUR BODY AS A WHOLE
Functional medicine is also one of the few health care choices that views the body as a whole. This is important considering that every single system in your body is dependent on the next to function properly. To take this holistic approach, we consider all variables including; your personal history, genetic make up, occupational, nutritional, and social factors. All of these factors play a role in the expression of health and disease.
