Functional or natural medicine is what Thomas Edison spoke of when he said, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause of prevention of disease." A functional medicine approach to health is based on preventing and restoration of health rather than managing a set of symptoms. We look for the underlying cause of symptoms and addresses them. By addressing the cause you can heal and fix the problem. We simply ask the question "why?" Why do I have hormone imbalance? Why do I have Irritable bowel syndrome? Why am I always fatigued? Why do I have anxiety? If you find the cause of these imbalances and correct it your symptoms may go away as your body can now heal. Our treatments are based on what Hippocrates, the father of medicine, stated, "let food be thy medicine." We use diet modifications and nutritional supplementation to help the body work properly and heal. Our treatment are all based on proper diagnosis from a comprehensive history and laboratory analysis. We will analyze what blood work you have had in the past and order any addition test that would help us find the cause of your particular concern.
