There is only one YOU

People are like snowflakes; no two are alike. In our practice we recognize that YOU are an individual who is genetically and biochemically unique. Functional Medicine is patient-centered. It’s all about treating YOU as a WHOLE person, not simply your disease.

This treatment approach is based on scientific data and considers the environment, genetics and lifestyle factors. It encourages close collaboration between the patient and practitioner with a combined goal of creating ultimate wellness. Functional Medicine requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic and biochemical makeup as well as lifestyle factors and a detailed patient history to formulate a personalized treatment plan with the best possible outcomes.


Functional medicine is often illustrated as a tree with a complex root system. This depicts conventional medicine as treating what is above the surface namely symptoms and disease versus functional medicine which seeks to understand and treat the root cause of the disease – namely lifestyle and environmental factors, including diet, activity, nutrition, stress etc.

The standard model of care is to diagnose a disease and match that disease with a corresponding drug or intervention. While conventional medicine is unsurpassed in treating acute illness such as trauma and other emergencies sadly, it fails miserably in the care of the chronic diseases that affect over 125 million Americans.

Chronic conditions such as allergies, GI issues, hormonal dysfunction, metabolic and some neurological problems are not always managed well within the conventional approach. Functional Medicine strives to understand the unique makeup of each patient, addressing the underlying causes of disease and engages both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

Many of these chronic conditions are finding solutions in the field of Functional Medicine which treats the WHOLE person using evidence based care.

With this approach, we seek to identify the root cause of your health concerns, using evidence-based solutions and a whole person approach.
