The Core Pillars of Functional Medicine

Patient Centered

We take a patient-centered approach, which means we focus on the unique needs and circumstances of each individual patient.

Root Causes

We aim to understand and address the underlying causes of a patient's health problems, rather than just treating symptoms.

Systems Biology

We take a systems biology approach, which means we consider how different body systems are interconnected and how they interact with each other.


We develop personalized treatment plans for each patient, based on their specific needs and goals.


We work in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive, coordinated care for their patients.


We focus on preventing illness and promoting health by addressing lifestyle factors, such as diet, exercise, and stress management.

Holistic Approach

We take a holistic approach to care, which means we consider the whole person, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Evidence Based

We use evidence-based practices and integrate the latest research and scientific advancements in our treatment approach.

Science of good health
 Environmental Inputs

Everything in our environment interacts with our genes to create health or disease. This is the revolutionary concept of epigenetics. Our diets, nutritional status, air, water, how much we exercise, trauma, stress, psychosocial factors, and exposure to environmental toxins and radiation can all influence our genes and our health.

Mind/Body Effect

The body and the mind are a single, dynamic bi-directional system. What you do to one has enormous impact on the other. What you do to your body you do to your brain, which impacts your mood and stress response. Understanding the importance of this relationship is an essential key to optimum health.

Inflammation & 
Immune Balance

When your immune system shifts out of balance, inflammation can run rampant — causing a chronic decline in function of vital organs, contributing to disease, weight gain, chronic pain, and accelerated aging. Managing inflammation is a key aspect to maximum vitality and longevity.

Energy &
Oxidative Stress

Energy – how we make it, why we lose it, and how to create more of it. Understanding how to optimize our mitochondria (energy factories) and how to reduce oxidative stress (which results from toxins, infections, allergens, stress, and poor quality food) is an often overlooked yet vital component of a thriving human body.

Hormones & Neurotransmitters

Most people are living out of harmony with our biological rhythms: hormones and neurotransmitters are two kinds of small molecules, which we depend on to keep us in balance, are running haywire. Uncovering the reasons for their imbalances and restoring their function is critical.

The Science of Good Health


Detoxification is the science of how our bodies get rid of waste. If waste builds up, we get sick. The key becomes figuring out how to enhance our body’s capacity to detoxify and get rid of waste while minimizing our exposure to toxins.

Gut & Digestion

Optimal gut health has become a prominent focus in the 21st century. The evidence pointing to links between chronic illness and an imbalanced microbiome keeps growing. A healthy gut is at the core of great health. Understanding why it breaks down and how to repair it is of utmost importance.
