About

A Path To Comprehensive Care

Functional medicine employs peer-reviewed science to find the root causes underlying chronic health conditions. An integrative approach to healthcare focuses on the prevention, management and fundamental causes of complex disease. The ultimate goal is to identify a health trend BEFORE it manifests into a disease.

Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, dietary and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
