Functional Medicine

Quotation I wanted to let you know how thankful I am for all your help.  I have been bloating off and on for over 30 years. I have not felt this good, relaxed calm and focused on myself, body and mind in years. I have been thru every test, drug, herb, OTC remedy and even surgery hoping to find some relief. With your knowledge, testing, guidance and acupuncture I am finally feeling better. ”  D.B, Delray Beach FL. April 17, 2020 M

Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach. It is a holistic, patient-centered, collaborative approach to healthcare where what you do and how you eat matters more than what you take. 

Chronic disease is rampant in this country. Six (6) out of ten (10) adults have a chronic disease. Conventional medicine is not stopping it, but Functional Medicine can.

Functional Medicine addresses the root cause of an illness instead of relying on drugs to suppress symptoms.

Functional Medicine is the future of healthcare, and it’s our best weapon against chronic disease.

While the Functional Medicine approach is all about preventing or reversing chronic illnesses, the conventional approach focuses on disease management. Rather than encouraging true health, conventional practitioners simply diagnose an illness and try to suppress the symptoms with prescription drugs. Those drugs seldom address the root cause of the problem. Instead, they mask symptoms and sometimes even suppress vital bodily functions, leading to unintended side effects—and additional prescriptions to deal with them. That medication treadmill effectively creates patients for life, and it never solves the underlying cause of the illness.

Functional Medicine practitioners approach wellness from the other way around, implementing the very highest level of care. We work closely with patients to help them prevent disease from happening in the first place; if it does, they act as “health detectives,” investigating the whole body, then treating the underlying cause to reverse the diagnosis as completely as possible, often without surgery or medication. Ultimately, patients not only get well, but stay well.
