Functional Medicine


Welcome to our Functional Medicine page, where we explore a revolutionary approach to healthcare that seeks to uncover the underlying causes of your health issues and create personalized solutions for lasting well-being.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach to health that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. Instead of just managing symptoms, functional medicine practitioners seek to understand the complex web of factors contributing to your health concerns. By addressing the underlying causes, we can support your body’s innate ability to heal and optimize your health.


 Functional Medicine takes a deep dive into your unique health history, genetics, and lifestyle to create a personalized treatment plan that’s tailored to your specific needs. We believe in treating the whole person, considering the interconnectedness of your body systems and the role of lifestyle and environmental factors in your health. Functional Medicine integrates various holistic approaches, such as Applied Kinesiology, Functional Nutrition, Lab Testing and Chiropractic Care, to create a well-rounded wellness plan designed just for you.

Lab Testing and Reading Results

As a holistic doctor, I focus on the root cause of ailments, not just the symptoms. A cornerstone of my approach is analyzing blood and lab work through the lens of “Optimal Ranges.” Conventional medicine often uses “clinical ranges” based on the broader population being tested—many of whom are already sick. Thus, by the time your results fall outside these ranges, it can indicate a significant issue. It’s not uncommon for patients to hear that their lab results appear normal, yet they still don’t feel well. This disconnect can be disheartening and confusing. By focusing on optimal ranges, we aim for true wellness, ensuring that you’re not just statistically ‘okay’, but truly thriving in your health.
