Functional Medicine

Get to the root cause and take back your life

Welcome to Your Journey Towards Optimal Health

At our practice, we believe that true health is not just the absence of disease but a state of vibrant well-being. Our mission is to empower you to take control of your health by addressing the root causes of illness, rather than merely treating symptoms.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a patient-centered approach to healthcare that aims to identify and address the underlying causes of disease. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more holistic, systems-oriented approach, we work with you to develop personalized strategies for achieving and maintaining optimal health.

Our Approach: Personalized and Comprehensive Care

  • In-Depth Consultations: We begin with thorough consultations to understand your health history, lifestyle, and current health concerns. This allows us to identify potential factors contributing to your condition.

  • Advanced Diagnostic Testing: Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, we delve deeper into your biochemistry, genetics, and other factors to uncover hidden imbalances that may be impacting your health.

  • Holistic Treatment Plans: Based on our findings, we create customized treatment plans that address your unique needs. These plans may include nutritional guidance, lifestyle changes, stress management techniques, and natural therapies.

  • Ongoing Support and Education: We are committed to supporting you every step of the way. Through regular follow-ups, educational resources, and community support, we ensure you have the tools and knowledge to make lasting changes.


Why Choose Functional Medicine?

  • Root Cause Resolution: We don’t just mask symptoms; we aim to identify and address the root causes of your health issues, leading to more effective and lasting solutions.

  • Whole-Person Care: We consider all aspects of your health, including physical, emotional, and environmental factors, to create a comprehensive care plan.

  • Patient Empowerment: Our approach is collaborative. We work with you as a partner in your health journey, empowering you with the information and support you need to take control of your well-being.

  • Evidence-Based Practices: Our recommendations are grounded in the latest scientific research, ensuring you receive the highest standard of care.

Is Functional Medicine right for me?

Functional Medicine is right for individuals who:

  • Want to address the root cause of their health concern — and not just the symptom(s)

  • Prefer natural treatments and solutions when possible

  • Want to challenge the status quo on aging and find good solutions

  • Want to be empowered and informed

  • Don't want to rely on medication or have difficulty with side effects



Your first visit will be much longer than any medical appointment you've had in recent years. Expect it to last up to an hour. During this time, your Functional Medicine Clinician will take a VERY detailed history. This timeline organizes your history chronologically in a graphic chart. This helps us to identify factors that may predispose, provoke, and contribute to your overall health. For further clarification and diagnostics, we may recommend specific testing. We'll look at the connection between the your whole lifespan and your current health. This insight is so beneficial – not only to the clinician, but to you as well. Once your timeline has been completed, we have a specific matrix we use to give us a comprehensive perspective of your health. This is essential when we are trying to solve complex chronic conditions. 


Your Second Visit & Beyond

During your second visit, we'll review lab findings and begin suggesting modifications that you can implement. We'll discuss specialty testing and make arrangements as necessary. This is the appointment where our patients often have a lot of questions. During subsequent visits, we'll work with you to follow your care plan and monitor your progress. We can make adjustments as needed so you can continue on a journey of healing and health.
