Complex Chronic Conditions

 

What Is Functional Medicine?


Functional medicine is a systems-oriented approach that addresses the underlying causes of many complex chronic illness. Rather than focusing on symptom suppression, Functional Medicine involves understanding the origins of complex chronic diseases, their mechanisms, and how to treat them by restoring proper function in the body.

 

Though functional medicine can address a wide variety of conditions, some of the issues we specialize in include:

 

Acid Reflux/ GERD

Adrenal Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Crohn's Disease

Depression

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Parkinson's Disease

Stress Induced Exhaustion

Toxic Exposure

Ulcerative Colitis

Unexplained Chronic Illnesses

 

How Does Functional Medicine Work?

For patients who can benefit from functional medicine, we first do a comprehensive overview of your case and help you determine the lab tests that you will need. Based on the results of these lab tests, we create a treatment strategy for you that involves a personalized supplementation program, dietary guidelines, and lifestyle recommendations that will benefit your condition.

 

Why the need for Functional Medicine?

Modern day living can be very stressful on the human body. Whereas our ancestors mainly battled with physical stressors, we tend to be overloaded with mental and emotional stressors which can be very damaging to the neuro-endocrine (brain, nerve, and hormone) system.

 

As many of us know and feel, stress is a root cause of many chronic conditions. Chronic stress exposure causes your neuro-endocrine system to work overtime... to near exhaustion in some cases. Your neuro-endocrine systems also regulates your digestive system, which is why so many digestive disorders are made worse by stress.

 

Lab testing allows us to see the status of your neuro-endocrine, digestive, detoxification systems. With this information, we create a targeted treatment program to eliminate any (low level) infections that may be present, support your body where it is underactive, and to regulate functions that are overactive. With our Functional Medicine Treatment Program, your body is able to heal, and re-learn the proper levels and rhythms of its physiological functions. The result is long term, optimal health.
