Many of the patients that I meet have seen numerous doctors and alternative medicine providers prior to our meeting.
Most have been failed by conventional medicine as the approach has been misunderstood, misdiagnosed, unsuccessfully treated, and even created or worsened their health problems.
I have over 20 years of experience helping people find the answers to their health problems, by shedding light on the truths about health and disease and the root causes of disease in each unique individual.
One of my main goals is to when possible help you avoid the unnecessary side effects of pharmaceutical drugs and invasive surgical procedures and to provide you with empowering information about your health, the root causes of your ill symptoms, and offer you treatments plans that will nourish your health and well-being not only for today but for a lifetime.
I believe that health is our birthright and that our body intrinsically has the blueprint for optimal health and well-being. Our task is to partner to identify, and treat the root causes that are standing in the way and take your system off track.
Ultimately each individual patient and their unique story is far more important and powerful than the disease name and just as each individual is unique so should their medical treatment be, personalized and unique.
Toxicity, gastrointestinal dysfunction and emotional trauma in the milieu of genetics and environment are the gateway to disease. While positive emotions, whole organic foods, movement, nutritional supplements, and the body’s detoxification capability are the keys to healing and well-being.
However, many physicians don’t take the time to evaluate these unique factors, nor study them on an ongoing basis, ignore them or worse just deny that these facts exist.
Although the conventional diagnosis-pharmaceutical drug model works extremely well for acute care such as fighting acute infectious diseases or attempting to resuscitate a cardiac arrest patient for example it does not work for the modern-day chronic disease epidemic that millions are suffering from such as autoimmune, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, obesity, allergies and other inflammatory diseases.
Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes and multifactorial triggers of disease and is designed to reverse the disease process rather than mask or ‘manage’ disease symptoms for life.
Functional Medicine moves away from conventional medicines diagnosis-pharmaceutical drug model, or ‘name it and blame it’ game and toward systems biology, upstream medicine and patient-centered medicine designed to treat the cause not just the symptoms.
Every one of you deserves the best care possible, every one of you is unique, just as your health care should be. My patients deserve the best and Functional Medicine creates an honest path for the restoration and protection of optimal health and well-being.
