Functional Medicine

Lifestyle, environment and genetics contribute to your health. We just haven’t genetically evolved fast enough to adapt to modern life. Surgery and medications keep us alive, but our quality of life is slowly being eroded by chronic disease. Today it is estimated that 50% of Americans have a chronic illness. A further 25% have two or more chronic diseases.

Functional medicine treats you as an individual by addressing the lifestyle you lead, the environment you live in and the genes that impact your health. Data collected when analyzing your test results and health history allow for targeted, personalized treatment plans. Root causes of your health conditions are identified and addressed so that symptoms are resolved, rather than suppressed.

With functional medicine, every symptom is a piece of your case puzzle. Believe me when I say that I want to hear about everything that is going on with your health. What you know about your health is a wealth of information and opportunity for us to truly help you reach your health goals.
