Your symptoms are the result of something bigger. You’ve probably tried everything with your conventional doctor. But the truth is when you don’t understand the cause of the symptom, you’ll never be able to find relief.
That’s where functional medicine differs from conventional medicine.
Functional Medicine is a system of medicine that takes into account the whole body and its function in order to uncover the root cause of what is ailing you. It is more than just naming a disease, we find out why you developed these imbalances so we can correct them not just cover up the symptoms. We utilize blood work, specialty testing, deep history and thorough investigation of your health.
Through Functional Medicine, we can get answers about what is behind fibromyalgia, arthritis, thyroid, adrenal and hormonal health, digestive wellness, parasites, hidden autoimmune diseases and infections, blood sugar stability, heart health, nutritional deficiency and more.
We then piece together a wellness plan to including diet, supplements, lifestyle, stress reduction, cleanses and detoxification protocols to bring your body back into optimal health.
A functional doctor doesn’t look to relieve just your symptoms; this will only provide you with temporary relief using medications that subject you to additional issues. We want to uncover the reason that you are feeling the way that you are.
It is possible to restore your health naturally and heal without medication.
The best way to achieve this is by first understanding what the root cause of your condition is. In order to do this, we’ll need to get to know you as an individual; this requires getting to know your about your lifestyle, family medical history, and the environments you are subjected to.
We’ll discuss your symptoms and run some tests to identify the cause of your skin conditions, digestive issues, fatigue, depression, migraines, and many other health related issues you may be experiencing.
