Functional medicine is tailored to your unique health needs. Every treatment plan begins with a comprehensive analysis of your health, deficiencies you might have, and your symptoms.
Traditional medicine only focuses on minimizing your symptoms. Our functional medicine approach focuses on fixing your health while optimizing your overall biology, so you can feel better than ever before.
Everyone's biology is different which is why we offer a customized approach to treatment. Your treatment plan will be based on your unique needs and goals.
Life is more than just managing your symptoms and surviving. Our practice believes you should truly thrive and feel your best no matter your condition.
Functional medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on an individualized approach to diseases and health conditions. Functional medicine can include everything from dietary changes to more intensive treatments like stem cell therapy. We develop a plan that will ensure you get true and lasting progress from treatment.
Treatment with functional medicine focuses on your unique biology and the root cause of your symptoms. From mental health problems to serious diseases like cancer, there is often one or more things that have led to a diagnosis. We work to thoroughly analyze your health history, vital signs, and collect clinical data to eliminate the cause of your symptoms and improve your health for years to come.
Here are some of the many treatments we integrate into our functional medicine programs:
Cryotherapy is effective treatment for chronic pain and inflammation. By introducing below freezing temperatures to the body, abnormal tissues can be frozen and eliminated from the body.
Infrared therapy delivers wavelengths of energy to the body that stimulate cell regeneration and healing. By improving mitochondrial function, infrared promotes a reduction in inflammation.
Stem cell therapy is an advanced treatment that has shown positive results for a variety of conditions and diseases including cancer, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and more.
PRP utilizes platelet rich plasma, a portion of your blood that is filled with healing properties. Once extracted, the PRP is injected into the body, often in targeted areas affected by inflammation or injury.
Nutrient deficiencies can create symptoms like fatigue, weakness, and general malaise. IV therapy delivers nutrients to your system in the most bioavailable form.
The best treatment is a healthy lifestyle. Our team can provide you with comprehensive nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle coaching to feel your best every day.
Conventional medicine is the most widely practiced form of medicine in the world. This approach is based on the diagnosis and treatment of symptoms using drugs, surgery, and other medical interventions.
Conventional medicine is primarily focused on treating the disease or condition once it has already developed. It also tends to treat each individual symptom in isolation, rather than taking a holistic view of the patient's overall health.
Alternatively, functional medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. This approach views the body as an interconnected system and takes a more holistic view of the patient's health. Doctors who specialize in functional medicine work to identify and address the underlying factors that contribute to the development of disease, such as poor diet, environmental toxins, stress, and genetics.
Our approach is about treating the root cause, not just your symptoms. This results in lasting, true wellness.
Functional medicine is an ideal choice for patients who want to prevent disease and patients who want to treat it.
