What We Do
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine addresses the root cause of a person’s dysfunction and imbalance by an experienced clinician evaluating a person’s full life history. Understanding what predisposed you and what factors accumulated resulting in your current symptoms. By addressing the root cause it is addressing you as a whole person. Lifestyle, perceptions, environment and genetics are all intertwined. Clinical expertise, lab results, history and a collaborative partnership with you allows for healing and improved health.
What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine can be used as an umbrella. Acupuncture, chiropractics, osteopathic manipulation, massage, herbal therapies, homeopathy, health coaching, mindfulness, nutrition, naturopathy, frequency specific micro-current and Functional medicine and others fall under this umbrella. Functional medicine addresses the root cause alleviating symptoms but more importantly allows your body to heal. Using other integrative modalities listed in conjunction with Functional medicine can be very beneficial enhancing the healing process.
What is Optimal Wellness?
Achieving optimal health is a process of realistic goal setting and self-discovery focusing on emotional and physical well being. Per the World Health Organization, health is defined as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Optimal well-being requires balance in the trio: mental, physical and spiritual.
