Functional Medicine

As a Health & Wellness Clinic, it is our responsibility to balance the body and eliminate dis-ease. Functional medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of dis-ease rather than just treating symptoms.

20% of all health problems are caused by external virus, etc. This is a problem for medicine. However, 80% has nothing to do with the external. Auto immune is often a term misused, and the body is dealing more with auto intoxification; thus causing a systemic inflammatory response which can cause a host of dis-ease throughout the body, causing significant musculoskeletal pain and/or many forms of arthritis along with a host of other problems.

Poor digestion and unhealthy gut can contribute to systemic inflammation in several ways.

  • Leaky Gut Syndrome: Digestive issues such as inflammation, infections, or imbalances in gut bacteria can lead to increased intestinal permeability, commonly known as leaky gut syndrome. This allows toxins, undigested food particles, and other harmful substances to leak into the bloodstream, triggering an immune response and system inflammation.
  • Imbalanced Gut Microbiome: Disruptions in the balance of beneficial and harmful bacteria in the gut (dysbiosis) can promote systemic inflammation. Certain bacteria produce endotoxins that can activate the immune system and increase overall inflammation levels.
  • Nutrient Absorption: Inadequate digestion can impair the absorption of essential nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which are necessary for proper immune function and most importantly for our office, inflammation regulation. Deficiencies in these nutrients can exacerbate systemic inflammation.
  • Food Sensitivities: Poor digestion can lead to food sensitivities or intolerances, where certain foods are not properly broken down and cause an immune reaction. This immune response can result in inflammation throughout the body.
  • Endocrine & Hormonal System: Nothing happens in the endocrine system by itself. It all becomes involved and is imperative to balance everything in together.

Personalized Diagnostic Testing: Our Doctors use a specific, Integrated Panel (IUP) because it gives a realtime assessment of what to do, “Right Now”. This allows us to help identify early signs, or even significant dis-ease throughout the body before it causes extensive damage or more advanced conditions.

Once identified, it allows us to work with the body and give it what it needs to properly heal. It’s imperative to give the body proper nutrients so it has something to build with and to create the proper internal biochemical environment congruent to health and healing. In doing so, we are more able to restore balance and optimize the body's natural functions to promote overall health and wellness.
