Our foundations of functional medicine
Discovering the root
Through a more thorough process than most, your first few appointments are focused on identifying the root cause of your health issue(s), taking a journey through your life to understand all that contributed to your current state of health and wellness. There are no shortcuts with this process. That’s what makes it so successful in reversing chronic disease. We are looking for your unique path to greater health. And this involves treating your whole self. By understanding why your health issue is occurring, there is a clearer path towards how to heal.
We’re not just telling you what to do, like conventional medicine often does. Partnering with us is a more intimate and collaborative process. There’s more ongoing engagement, longer appointments to answer questions and address concerns, and a more supportive community and network to assist you and rely on. For you to gain true ownership of your health, we have to first make it possible for you to take control of your health and wellness. That can only be done by us working together.
Personalizing your care
It starts by understanding no two people are the same. There may be similarities and patterns, but the sum of the parts, their whole self, is 100% unique to them. So why would any other practice do the exact same thing for the continuum of one’s health journey – starting with discovery, to testing, interpretation, implementation, and management. It makes absolutely no sense! That’s why your care with us is truly individualized. Not just one part, everything.
