Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is an investigative process in which we look for the root cause of symptoms and disease.  Whereas conventional medicine asks, “What drug can we use to combat the symptoms of this disease?”, functional medicine asks, “Why do we have this problem in the first place, and how can we restore optimal function?”


If you suffer from auto-immune disease, pain disorders such as fibromyalgia, chronic disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or cardiovascular disease, or simply a set of symptoms with no apparent cause, we can help.  Please know that the functional medicine healing process is a partnership between healer and patient, and this requires commitment, time, effort and dedication to healing from the patient. If you are ready to commit yourself to making significant lifestyle changes to restore your health and reclaim your life, this process is for you.

Our clinic functions in the membership model - not only to make treatment affordable, but because we recognize that healing is an ongoing process that is different for each person and does not always fit into a specific timeframe. This way we can continue treatment as long as we need to to resolve each individual's health challenges.
