What Is Functional Medicine
Functional Medicine is a field pioneered by thought leaders, including a number of MD’s, who saw the need for medical practice to catch up with 50-years of research which says, loud and clear, that something has to change. These thought leaders incorporated the latest nutritional research, genomics, and epigenics to innovate new ways of treating health problems at their molecular or cellular root.
Functional Medicine seeks to find the root cause or causes of a condition in order to treat the illness at its source, rather than try to fight symptoms.
Functional Medicine also integrates alternative or integrative health treatment modalities so get the best possible results for patients.
Many people who found no relief through conventional medicine finally recovered from their illnesses after receiving Functional Medicine treatment.
Millions of people are afflicted by heart conditions, diabetes, inflammation, arthritis, digestion problems, chronic pain, low energy, or obesity. While conventional medicine excels at repairing injuries, fighting bacterial infections, and more, it also leaves countless people stuck and frustrated with their poor health.

- The Treatment of Chronic Disease
- Finding the Root Cause of an Illness

- High Cholesterol/Triglycerides
- Prostate/Men’s Issues
- Skin Conditions/Excema

What Our Clients Say

I don't know if it's coincidence, or the treatments or the l-theanine, or a combination of all of the above (and other supplements you gave) But I truly turned a corner in my health. Im still struggling with one thing or another but nowhere near the extreme levels like before. So thank you for being you.
