Whole body approach to care

Functional Medicine is a whole-body approach to care which will involve recommendations concerning specific diets and nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress and nutritional supplements.

The clinician will use a comprehensive history and assessment of all symptoms reported. She may recommend basic and comprehensive blood testing to assess and address the underlying cause.

Challenging the conventional model of healthcare

Functional Medicine focuses on finding the root causes of health problems, customizing treatment plans, and prioritizing prevention for long-term wellness.

Understand root causes

Functional medicine looks at the root causes of health issues by examining medical history, lifestyle, genetics, and environment to identify hidden imbalances missed by conventional medicine.

Personalized treatment plans

Functional medicine tailors treatments to each individual, recognizing that what works for one may not work for another. This personalized approach empowers patients to take control of their health and wellness.

Prevention is key

Functional medicine prioritizes prevention to achieve optimal health by identifying potential risks and taking proactive measures to address them, avoiding the onset of chronic illnesses and promoting healthier lifestyles.

Frequently asked questions

Can premature gray hair be reversed?2023-12-01T10:16:28-06:00

It does depend on the cause. When hair greys (loses color) as a person ages, it’s simply a result of the hair follicle having less/no melanin so that when new hair grows it doesn’t have color. However, there are other reasons hair can become gray. To some degree, aging is actually a build up of oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are created through normal cell functions and the body’s ability to remove the ROS through detoxification.   It is caused by many factors other than aging. Some of these are inflammation, some diseases, stress, impaired detoxification, poor diet (malnutrition) and environmental toxins. More recent studies are focusing on targeting oxidative stress in neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. It does happen, on occasion, that when causes of oxidative stress are addressed that gray hair is ‘reversed’.
