Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic diseases. It moves away from the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach. Functional Medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms!

Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

The Functional Assessment Questionnaire (or F.A.Q.)

The Functional Assessment Questionnaire (or F.A.Q.)  is powerful online health assessment software that takes the guesswork out of diagnostics. With this easy-to-complete questionnaire I do a complete systems review of your health. The questions are not ones typically asked by traditional doctors and have been specifically designed to identify and analyze your body’s functions. From this analysis we determine the diagnostic tests that will provide a full picture of how your body’s organs are functioning and help identify root causes of symptoms you may be experiencing.
You can complete the F.A.Q. online in the privacy of your own home (see below). I will review your results and the recommended diagnostic tests with you and then together we’ll work out a step-by-step plan to wellness.
We are committed partners in your journey to optimal health. We don’t guess, we test!
