What is Functional Medicine
Functional medicine is a health-care practice that deals with the underlying causes of disease and illness. This is done by emphasizing dietary and lifestyle changes, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements and herbal medicines. We will use lab testing to guide treatment and to determine what the underlying cause of disease might be. The goal of functional medicine is to reestablish a healthy equilibrium in the body so you can maintain health while adhering to your individual nutrition and lifestyle practices.
Functional medicine can be extremely helpful for a wide array of symptoms such as gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmunity, thyroid conditions and digestive issues. My integrative approach aims to properly diagnose the root cause through specific testing and effectively care for patients without the use of prescription medications whenever possible. However, I do not believe in unnecessary testing, excessive supplement programs and overly restrictive diets and find that in a lot of cases the simplest recommendations can resolve a host of symptoms. I will use blood laboratory studies, urinalyses, food sensitivity/allergy tests, comprehensive gastrointestinal stool analyses and microbiome tests. Many conditions and diseases can be resolved and managed by combining more natural methods with science-based diagnostics. If I believe you need conventional medicine, I will refer you to the appropriate health care provider.
