Many individuals feel good currently but are in search for more preventative measures for their future. A comprehensive review of diet, exercise, sleep, lifestyle, and nutrient needs should be completed on an annual basis, at minimum. At this time, health goals are discussed and a comprehensive plan to achieve them is mapped out. Each year of age comes with new challenges to our health. Its crucial to be ready by being proactive, rather than reactive. These evaluations may be completed both in office and remotely.
The functional medicine approach allows us to use clinical nutrition science to examine, identify, and address the root cause of disease. Often an illness is preemptively assumed without consideration to other body systems that may play a role in the potential disease. Factors of influence may include our individual genes, environment, lifestyle, diet, and sleep. These consultations may be completed both in office and remotely.
Samples of blood, urine, saliva, or stool may be tested in order to assess: digestive function, allergies, hormone balance, thyroid balance, adrenal status, environmental toxicity, bone resorption, blood sugar, methylation process, vitamin/mineral status, and genetics - just to name a few.
For over 125 years, chiropractic physicians have specialized in natural, non-invasive health care. Spinal health directly impacts the function of the nervous system and all organs it innervates. The chiropractic adjustment is used to restore both structural and neurological integrity. In addition, some conditions may benefit from therapies such as spinal traction, therapeutic exercises, and laser therapy amongst others.

Essentially, Functional Medicine physicians partner with their patients to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health by evaluating their genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and predisposition towards disease.
As a general population, there is a steep increasing trend of chronic life altering disease. The current healthcare strategy is to treat the issue directly reactively.
Alternatively, Functional Medicine offers a patient centered approach to healthcare that focuses on the origins, prevention, and treatment of disease for the whole patient and not just an affected area.
Functional Treatments may include laboratory testing, prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, and stress-management techniques.
